  1. Crumbles Automatically Converts Text Into Video Montages, Perfects Human Communication

    Take that, custom iOS keyboards.

    Goodbye, text messages. So long, GIFs. There's a new form of communication in town. No, it's not voice messaging, either, unless you expand the definition to include video montages from movies and TV that read whatever you type for them, because that's exactly what Crumbles does, and it's amazing.

  2. Patrice Wilson, Rebecca Black’s Producer on “Friday,” Makes Direct Sequel to “Friday”

    When Rebecca Black hit the scene with her single "Friday," you probably remember the Internet, as well as yourself, flipping out at the ridiculousness of the song. Though she came under a decent amount of flack and the song rose to meteoric popularity because of how bad it is, her (currently former) producer, Patrice Wilson, took an equal amount, if not more, flack than the singer herself. You may remember Wilson as the guy in "Friday" who rapped in the car. Now, he's made a direct sequel to Black's "Friday." It is called "H.A.P.P.Y.," and it is about Saturday morning.

  3. Kohl's Uses Rebecca Black's "Friday" for Black Friday Commercial

    Black Friday is on the horizon, and in a somewhat clever pairing of words, Kohl's is using a parody of Rebecca Black's "Friday" in a commercial to promote their Black Friday sales. The ad features the above woman having waited in line "since yesterday," the main woman continually terrorizing an older woman, and what seems to be a Rebecca Black lookalike behind the main woman as she enters Kohl's for the first time. The commercial's song follows the same tune and rhythm, though the lyrics are replaced with Kohl's-centric lines. See the video of how a department store utilized Rebecca Black after the jump.

  5. Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Mysteriously Removed From YouTube

    Well, it looks like tomorrow is Saturday since Friday is no longer available. Good news if you're looking forward to the weekend. Rebecca Black stole our hearts by letting us know the order of the days of the week and asking us for seating advice, but now the fun fun fun fun is over and the 160 million hit video is nowhere to be found. YouTube is reluctant to say whether or not Miss Black herself had anything to do with the video's takedown, but reminds everyone that
    “YouTube takes copyright infringement very seriously. When we receive a complaint alleging that a video infringes another person or company’s copyrights, we remove that video. Users who believe that a video was removed in error can appeal the copyright takedown.”

    In the meantime, you'll just have to wait to see what day tomorrow actually is, then maybe write a song explaining it.

  8. Stephen Colbert Sings “Friday” On Fallon [Video]

    And All Was Right With the World

    This is the only way you will see this song performed on The Mary Sue -- sung by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and Taylor Hicks. Throughout the week, Fallon has been threatening his BFFSM (Best Friend For Six Months) Colbert with the task of singing this song ever since Colbert donated $26,000 of Fallon's money to DonorsChoose.org. Fallon gave his audience the chance to come up with the money, and if they did, he promised that Colbert would come sing Rebecca Black's "Friday" on his show. And it worked! Turns out people are very charitable when they want to see someone do something humiliating. The beginning has an Annie Lennox feel to it, don't you think? (Flavorwire)

  9. Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Slowed Down 500%

    With Rebecca Black's seminal song about par-tee-in, "Friday," currently sitting at 65 million YouTube views and climbing, it was only a matter of time before the popular song was slowed down and released, as per the fun, fun, think-about fun, recent trend. Oddly enough, when "Friday" is slowed down about 500% of its normal speed, the result is actually kind of good. From a repeating ocean-waves-crashing-on-the-shore effect, to infamous Ark Music Factory CEO and rapper-about-buses, Patrice Wilson sounding like a ghost haunting a mansion trying to warn us of some kind of danger, the whole slowdown could easily play while the hero of a movie sacrifices his or herself to save the world.

    The slowdown was created with a program called PaulStretch, created by programmer Paul Nasca. The program isn't strictly something that simply elongates a song, as it takes very short pieces of music, mixes them up, then digitally rebuilds them and shoves them back into sequence.
