The 'Friday' meme turns evil: Rebecca Black remixed (darkly) [Video]

April 1, 2011 |  5:14 pm

Like many others, Pop & Hiss is getting a little tired of the Rebecca Black/"Friday" meme -- even as we admittedly enable it to continue. But every time it seems like all that can be said about the silly song has been said, the Internet offers yet another angle on it, providing more evidence of the myriad ways in which the song and the accompanying video have become a canvas on which artists both musical and visual are rendering their own reactions to it.

Attention parents: Before you watch this video, made by a company called Blood Drunk Studios, make sure your kids aren't around, because it might scare the dickens out of them. Bonus: If your kids are fans of the song and you're trying to wean them of it, this video will no doubt make them never want to see the video or sing the song again. (Just make sure Family Services doesn't find out.)

Have a nice Friday -- which, in case you're wondering, comes after Thursday, but before Saturday. (Hat tip: Dangerous Minds)
