Rebecca Black reacts to her ‘Friday’ video nearly three years after its release in honor of Black Friday. Yes, it’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since the cringe-worthy song permeated your brain, never to be fully erased again. Now a little older and hopefully a little wiser, Black returns to the scene of the crime to watch her fourteen-year-old self wax poetic about the joys of the impending weekend. Needless to say, the experience is mildly painful.
Black winces, grimaces, sighs and eye-rolls her way through her heavily auto-tuned debut single, occasionally dancing and laughing. Most of us have the luxury of burying our awkward adolescent embarrassments, but Black is not quite as fortunate. Luckily, it appears as though she can poke fun at herself.
