Rebecca Black Takes Over Funny or Die, Spoofs 'Friday' Success
Internet sensation Rebecca Black is indeed following in the footsteps of Justin Bieber. Just in time for April Fool's Day, Funny or Die sent out a press release announcing that the 13-year-old aspiring singer has purchased the entertainment site and named herself chief executive officer much like what the "Baby" hitmaker did last year.
The site has since been renamed Friday or Die, and is filled it with spoof videos that put the focus on the overnight success Rebecca attained with single "Friday". The teen phenom explained, "Friday belongs to me, and now Funny Or Die belongs to me. I can't be any more clear about this other than this - yesterday was Thursday, Thursday, today is Friday or Die-Day, tomorrow is Saturday."
One of the clips is made in the form of a faux-"Behind the Music" documentary. Entitled "Betwixt the Music: Rebecca Black", it features Sammy Hagar, who shares, "You have to understand the times we were living in when the song came out. Rango was number one at the box-office, not number three when the song came out! St. Patrick's Day was in front of us. Now it's behind us."
Another clip titled "Which Seat Should I Take?" pokes fun at Driving Safety PSA. In it, Rebecca says, "I'm talking about riding in a car with a 13-year-old driver. Whether on the road, or on a windless green screen city scape, the legal driving age is 16 - 17 in New Jersey." Near the end, she adds, "I'm Rebecca Black, and we so excited ... About safety."
Rebecca also takes a jab at the mystery behind "Friday" lyrics in one other clip. "The choice between the front seat and the back seat is actually a metaphor for American foreign policy," she spills. There are more spoof videos offered for viewing pleasure on the Friday or Die site.
