I know, this is starting to become Rebecca Black overload. But this here video must be shared amongst Internet dwellers. Last night Stephen Colbert made a special appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to sing the world’s most hated song ever, “Friday.” But why, you ask? Recently Colbert auctioned off a painting of himself for $26,000 to benefit DonorsChoose.org, then last week he said that Jimmy would match the donation. Thing is is that Jimmy had no idea about Colbert’s announcement until earlier this week. Instead of brushing aside the false fact, Jimmy asked his friends, family, and fans to help raise enough money to match Colbert’s donation. And guess what–we beat it by $46. In total, Colbert, Jimmy, and NBC Universal (which doubled Fallon’s number) raised $86,000. Woo! And because Jimmy was able to raise the money, Colbert agreed to come on the show and celebrate by singing “Friday.” Double woo! (That would be a woo woo!) Watch Colbert’s rendition of the track you love to hate; The Roots back him up, Black Thought does some rapping, and Jimmy joins in, as does a couple of surprise guests!
Following the tradition of selecting an annoying teen sensation to take over their website, Funny or Die has chosen Rebecca Black (of “Friday” fame) for this year’s April Foolery. The site is designed all around young Rebecca; there’s even a calendar explaining that Friday is the day to be “so excited”, that Thursday comes before it, Saturday is tomorrow, and Sunday comes afterwards. Speaking of the day that starts the week, there’s a new featured trailer starring Rebecca called “Sunday Comes Afterwards” that’ll surely bust your gut with pain. And then there’s the excruciating “Which Seat Should I Take” PSA. There are more than a handful videos featuring Rebecca and you’ll find them all starring you in the face when you load up the redesigned site. But first, make sure you check out the video embedded above. In it Rebecca Black analyzes the lyrics to the genius song that made her popular in the first place. “Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal. That line is about consumerism. I gotta have my bowl, I gotta have my cereal.” And who knew they were so politically-bent? “The choice between the front seat and the back seat is actually a metaphor for American foreign policy.”
