Friday Videos Like Gang Fights

If you haven’t seen the Rebecca Black video, I won’t make you see it. Here’s a link if you’re feeling brave like a few hundred million other people. (Check the like/dislike ratio, which is hilarious!). 

And HERE, from Mollie, is the best parody, as done by bad lip reading:

Link! Link!

Have a weekend full of chicken to eat!

    I still haven’t figured out how the video this one is a parody of, went viral… though after looking at that ratio I am not that surprised any longer.  :>  The girl does sound too much like a chipmunk to me, and the lyrics … erm… what am I talking about… what lyrics?!?!

    Thanks for sharing, I always look forward to your video finds :D
    Loved the Google Exodus one, shared with my hubby, as he’s definitely going to get a kick out of it.

    *off to find some more haroset recipes*

    So much better than the original and makes slightly more sense. I’m forwarding this to my husband and son.

    Though this is awesome this is still my favorite version.

    The singer of this version is much better – she can carry a tune all by herself without electronic “enahancement.” Overall, it’s a much better song in this version.

    This poor girl – for all I know she is full of talent but her dead zombie eyes are FREAKING ME OUT!  did they make her do this video under heavy medication while she was down with the flu?  Or is she actually a zombie in good condition?

    What is the guy driving the car that was tossed in near the end supposed to represent? Who’s listening to this crap?

    @ Nightwriter:  the reason the original is famous is *because* it’s crap, and was outed as “The Worst Song Ever” by a well known blog (tosh.o). 

    I believe the story is that Rebecca Black is a 13 year-old girl with parents rich enough to get her to have her own song & music video for her birthday.  As evidenced by the quality of the video, lyrics, melody and backing music, the record company that does this is not reputable.  Anyway, one day this particular video from the record company (all of whose videos are awesomely horrific) gets noticed by a famous blog, and BAM!  Instant viral video!

    Poor girl, she’s just an ordinary kid who’s now famous for singing The Worst Song Ever (TM).

    Captcha: nations96 – this girl is known in over 96 nations for not being able to carry a tune even with the help of autotune.

    Edit:  and the creepiness of the rapping dude in the car has been hilariously dissected in blogs all over the internet.

    Yeah, but I like the other video by Bad Lip Reading that spoofs Boom Boom Pow by Blackeyed Peas.  It’s soo terrible it’s hilarious.

    The original video has one of my favorite comments though:

    Dear canada, You gave us Justin bieber, Well two? can play this game. Here’s Rebecca Black bitches. Love United States Of America

    Poor kid though. I mean, she makes a stupid ass video and suddenly there’s millions of people making fun of it.

    quichepup: The Colbert and Roots link kind of proves how bad lyrics are represented can make a big difference. Okay, the lyrics are still oh so terrible, but the way they sung it would have kept it from being the Worst Song Ever. But the first minute – without being a parody – would still have been enjoyable. (Still stupid, but enjoyable.)

    I actually was able to watch much further into this video than the original.

    This parody was way more catchy than the original, and the lyrics weren’t really that much more nonsensical. Thanks for linking Stephen Colbert’s charity cover, that was awesome! I’m also partial to Conan O’Brien’s parody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Th1HgtYuMY

    The Bob Dylan parody is good too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FISHEO3gsM

    I have tears streaming out sideways from this.

    Oh man, this parody is so much fun. Thank you to all the crazy people responsible. This song almost makes sense!

    I’ve been trying to avoid Rebecca Black as much as possible.

    On one hand, as a singer who’s been working for years trying to improve my voice and expand my range, the whole thing ticks me off. Yes, she’s awful, but she’s still famous. Whereas I have to filter my comments on YouTube because the only remarks I get is “U R SO FAT N UGLY.” Nothing on my voice – not even constructive critizism. Just my weight. And my videos are far from viral.

    On the other I feel bad for Rebecca because she’s only 13 and getting DEATH THREATS from people. Come on, she’s not child molester Victor Salva or rapist Roman Polanski. We’re not talking child killers Susan Smith or Casey Anthony here. She’s a 13 year old child who made a bad video. Period. She doesn’t deserve death threats.

    I wish people would just ignore her entirely. It’s things like this that make her famous and assure us that there will be more of her. While those of us whom work hard and have talent continue to be ignored.

    Damn you smart bitches, now my life has been destroyed…I looked up R.Black’s webpage and am terrified by her strange grinning features and I will never get that earworm out of my brain aaaarrrghghghghggh.

    Ha. I love this version. We honestly watched this for one of my tutorials when Rebecca Black was still trending on twitter.

    What is the guy driving the car that was tossed in near the end supposed to represent? Who’s listening to this crap?

    I heard he’s one of the producers for the company that was payed to make the video. My pet theory is that he is using the dreams and money of yuppies as a vehicle to establish his own name. Who said you need talent to be famous?
