Rebecca Black's "Friday" is 9 years old




Rebecca Black took to Twitter to commemorate 9 years since the release that made her a celebrity (?), by posting a pic of herself and a screenshot of her notes app.

The song became (in)famous and viral for the shallow lyrics and ridiculous accompanying video. With original reception being highly negative, but it has since become a cult classic, covered by numerous artists and comedians becoming of one of the best examples of viral content and memes since the advent of social media.

The original video was removed from YouTube on June 16, 2011, due to legal disputes between ARK Music and Black. Having already amassed more than 166 million views. Since the growth in popularity of the song and video, there have been numerous parody videos and remixes.
