Ever since Rebecca Black came into the public’s consciousness Fridays have never been the same. As shitty as that song is–and oh, is it shitty–it’s also extremely catchy, which is the reason why it blew up into the internet phenomena it is today. I don’t believe it is a contradiction to say that it is one of the worst songs ever made AND one of my all-time favorites. I just can’t help but laugh my ass off every time I hear it.
Unfortunately after the initial explosion of “Friday” spoofs that came out in the days following the video’s release on the internet, new ways to laugh at Rebecca Black have dried up. Coming down from watching “Friday” over and over again is a bit like coming down from a post Easter/Halloween candy binge. Fortunately, I found found some new shitty videos to tide me over until I can get my next fix.
First up, from Norway, is Tonje Langeteig with the amazingly titled, “I Don’t Wanna Be A Crappy Housewife.” Instead, apparently, she’d rather be on a Norwegian version of The Jersey Shore. Like that’s better. She doesn’t want to be a crappy housewife, but somehow she’s fine with being a crappy everything else.
Next up from New Orleans is Mr. Ghetto with “Walmart”. If you haven’t seen this video yet, well, I don’t really know how to prepare you for it. Apparently the best place to pick up girls in the South is Walmart. Who drives to Walmart with a Jaguar? And there’s an entire verse dedicated to feminine hygiene products. As shitty as this video is though, you’ve got to give the guy props for making a National Lampoon’s Vacation reference by linking Walmart to Wally World. Nice.
