That "Friday" song: what in the hell is going on?
A month ago, my daughters showed me this. It was three days after it came out. It already had 12 million views.
A few weeks later, I was shooting at a Porsche dealership, and five people were gathered around an iPhone, watching it. At a place that sells $100,000 cars.
Today, I saw it's up to 119 million hits.
I'm not going to say this is a sign of the apocalypse. I just don't get it. I mean, it's a bad song, cheesy video, inane lyrics. But 119 million hits?
It's too big for me to wrap my head around. The enormity of it is crushing me. I'm a speck in the universe. I am but a shell of a man. I am Brundlefly and Rebecca Black is a big gigantic rock.
