This weekend, Rebecca Black‘s crazily awful music video took over the internet. We watched it. We watched it again. And then we watched it again. And…well, you need to see it to believe it. Anyway! As frightening as this is to report, there are other videos just like it! Allow us to present: “My Jeans.”
Like Black’s “Friday,” “My Jeans” involves autotuned vocals, an over-explanatory bridge, a rap interlude and a mind-bogglingly ridiculous video. 12-year-old Jenna Rose is a year younger than Black, and yet she drives a car in the clip. Sample lyrics: “Hannah Montana is wearing my jeans. Ashley Tisdale is wearing my jeans. Keke Palmer is wearing my jeans.” And for all of the jeans talk, they barely make an appearance in the video! (Though, for the record, they’re bejeweled and appliqued.) And…and…ahhhh!
Clearly this is something we have discussed at length in the office. We have thoughts, in the form of a video journey. Join us!
