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.
