It’s Friday, Friday!

The world has dubbed it the “worst song ever”, but it has gathered more than 150 million views (and a staggering 2.9 million “dislikes”) on YouTube. It seems we all love to hate Rebecca Black‘s “Friday” and its trail of brilliant spoofs – check out Stephen Colbert’s hilarious rendition here and, our favorite, the Death Metal Friday.

Naturally the Glee kids also covered it, with hot Puck taking lead vocals, which inspired us to team up with special guest Adult Beginner and look at the practical dilemma of all those seat choices (!!!!) from a balletic angle:

What should we cover in our next ballet webcomic? Please cast your vote in the comment form!

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).

    HA HA. I want to see Slipknot cover the Friday song, just like Slipknot covered this Justin Bieber song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kspPE9E1yGM

    Thanks for the comments! Glad you guys enjoyed our bit of Friday silly.

    My favorite part of the song has to be:

    Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
    Today i-is Friday, Friday
    We-we-we so excited
    We so excited
    We gonna have a ball today

    Tomorrow is Saturday
    And Sunday comes after…wards
    I don’t want this weekend to end

    But thanks to Glee & all these amazing covers we now have this song implanted in our heads!

    Its 7 A.M
    Just woke up in the morning
    Got to brush my teeth cause I have bad breath
    I like Crest but I like Colgate better
    Then I swish my mouth with some Listerine
    Got to put my clothes in the hamper
    Because if I don’t, my mom will get mad
    I think that I have to blow my nose
    Better not leave the tissues on the sink

    I just made a HIT song for YouTube just like Rebecca!! HE HE.

    The comic is awesome!!

    Glee. (Glay) I just don’t get it. I was an unpopular nerd who got picked on in wood shop during Highschool but even I would have been too cool to watch that show. (Glay)

    Love it that the ballerina even looks a bit like Rebecca Black :) How about more Ballet “frenemies” in next comic? Keep them coming!
