Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Gettin’ Down On “Friday”

Who is the songwriter? Barney the Dinosaur? Lyrics such as “Kickin’ in the front seat, sittin’ in the back seat. Gotta make my mind up, which seat can I take?” and “Partyin’, partyin’ (yeah!) Partyin’, partyin’ (yeah!) Fun, fun, fun, fun, looking forward to the weekend” should be declared instant classics.

The highly literal video (yes, let’s show her by the bus stop!) is perfectly in synch with the lyrics’ careful enumeration of the days of the weekend. Talk about audio-video lock.

So is this girl seriously clueless? Or is she in on the joke? Past the 8th million mark and counting, the tsunami of views is proof that Rebecca is indeed a certified YouTube sensation for all the wrong reasons. But if she’s laughing all the way to the bank, maybe she is really just having fun, fun, fun, fun.

Perhaps there’s a clue in the flat look in her eyes throughout the video. Devoid of fun as she ironically sings “fun, fun, fun,” she may actually realize that everyone’s having fun at her expense. Then again, she could be just clueless.
