When I heard that Stephen Colbert was going to sing Rebecca Black’s infamous “song”, “Friday,” I was, as you might imagine,
giddy as schoolgirl who gets coked-up and expertly gangbanged by the football team ever-so-slightly intrigued. Unfortunately, the performance turned out to be a huge disappointment. Mostly because Stephen, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots took something that was sublimely awful and turned it into something mildly humorous and somewhat…catchy. I’m crestfallen.
Seriously, they ruined it. It wasn’t that funny. They made it kind of good. Only the original can comfort me now.
Or perhaps this:
I’ve decided I wanted to do a cover of this song. Something uptempo, metal. I will make it happen…somehow.
