The Internet Charges $2.99 to Watch Rebecca Black’s “Friday”! Hah!

Published

You’d think this be some sort of April Fools joke.  Heck, in the beginning, you probably thought the song itself was an April Fools joke!  But somewhere on the Internet, someone thought it was a good idea to charge people $2.99 to watch Rebecca Black’s “Friday”.

According to PopEater, there was a small span of time today where if someone attempted to watch the video, uploaded by Ark Music Factory’s “trizzy66,” they are allowed to watch 1:54, and are then prompted to pay $2.99 to watch the rest.

Adding insult to injury is the promise that “you will be able to watch this video for 72 hours.”

Really?  Three bucks will only get you 72 hours of Friday? And why are we allowed to watch only until 1:54?  What happens at 1:55 that we need to see?!  For the love of all that is holy, tell me!! *Gets inhaler, takes a deep breath* Woo…okay…got a little carried away there…I’m fine now…

I guess we should consider ourselves lucky, though…in other countries, fans only got the message, “This rental is currently unavailable in your country. Sorry about that.” At least they’re polite…

Luckily for all of us, at around 5:15pm, the video was removed entirely from YouTube, and then less than an hour later, it was restored to its original, completely free and clear form.

I think this may be the beginning of the end for the internet as we know it…either that or the beginning of the end of Ark Music Factory’s credibility (if they ever had any).  And just on the off chance you’re not one of the almost 165 Million people who’ve seen the video, here it is!

VIRAL: This Hat Lets You Sleep Peacefully During Your Morning Commute

What’s a New Yorker worst commuting nightmare? Spitting pan handlers. But second to that, is sleeping through your stop and ending up on the other side of town!

How many groggy mornings have you spent sitting on the train, pinching yourself just to keep awake so you would’t miss your stop? Maybe it’s that post-work exhaustion that has you snoozing your way 8 stops passed home. Well Twitter has found a commuting game changer in the form of a hat. That’s right, Twitter user @DamianPalace posted a video of a napping subway rider with an electronic baseball cap that scrolled to read “Wake Me Up Before I Go Go…Past 34th Street…” Sure, the system isn’t perfect as you have to rely on the kindness of strangers but if there is a place where people aren’t shy to yell at you, it’s New York City.
