Gotta get down on Friday
March 2011 saw a young American girl take YouTube by storm when she recorded a song that made wavelengths around the world – but not in a good way. 13-year-old Rebecca Black’s Friday became a viral phenomenon, generating millions of views on YouTube and brutal comment section which ripped the teen for her autotuned song.
It was one of the most disliked videos on the platform but it got the media around the world talking. There were many parody videos of the song where people made Black a laughing stock.
