Rebecca Black’s “Friday” video was just taken down from YouTube, where it had amassed over 150 million views. Man, we were planning on playing it twenty-eight times in a row tomorrow!
The removal was presaged by a brief vanishing act on Monday, but now it appears that Rebecca Black filed a copyright claim with YouTube and it’s likely the real deal. This would make sense, as Black and Ark Music Factory, the proto-music label that produced the song, have been battling over rights to “Friday.” Now that Friday’s gone, how do you feel about making fun of it, internet? Bet you kind of miss it! [TechCrunch]
