'Rebecca Black Is a Hoax' Is Itself a Hoax
The first time you watched the original Rebecca Black video, "Friday," did you wonder to yourself if it was too bad to be true? Could it be purposefully bad as a part of some publicity stunt to promote a horror movie about teenage music cyborgs? The thought had crossed my mind.
Apparently this was an actual rumor that had been floating around the web due to a fake article supposedly posted by Stuff Magazine. One article reporting the elaborate hoax of a hoax even quoted Stuff saying:
Teen music sensation Rebecca Black and her internet hit Friday are actually a viral marketing campaign for a new movie. The Music Factory, directed by Home Alone's Chris Columbus, is about a secret facility where cyborgs resembling young teenagers are created and turned into pop stars.
But the piece wasn't even by Stuff. It was hosted elsewhere with a copy of Stuff's design.
Oh anonyblogger, why did you have to go and get our hopes up with a fake story like that? It just makes more sense to imagine that auto-tuned robot voice setting up a movie about cyborg pop stars. Now we have to go back to the sad reality of this song simply being awful.
