Okay, so I am a little late off the boat, by now every man and his dog has watched this song.
|"I don't get it, what day comes after Sunday"|
1/ Which seat should I take?
Very early in this song, Rebecca is standing at the bus stop waiting for the dreaded bus stop, and I am guessing if the people on the bus had heard her sing she would be confronted with a similar situation to a young Forrest Gump.
|"You kant seet here"|
Luckily for Rebecca though, no one has heard here sing yet, or at least not her 12 year old friends that have car-jacked a Mercedes Benz. They pull up and offer Rebecca a ride, presumably to rob a bank. This leads Rebecca to a quandary,and not whether its a crime to get into a car you think is stolen, no something far more pressing..
|Just for completeness this is the situation confronting Rebecca|
But if you look back at that photo, there appears to be no option, they only place Rebecca can sit is in the middle in the back, the front isn't an option.
Well that is not entirely true, not a legal option, and I guess I am underestimating these particular children's blatant disregard for the law. Grand Theft Auto, Driving without a license, not wearing seat belts etc etc.

2/ How slow are they driving on the highway?
|I only know its the highway thanks to the literal lyrics|
Note that they are sitting on the back, and dancing and their hair is staying perfectly still. So presumably they are travelling at 5kph and there are about 600 cars piled up behind them? Why can I not hear the abuse and tooting in the video
|"I GET IT, YOU ARE HAVING FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN, BUT DO IT AT F****N 100 KPH"|
Although I expect her friend did speed up at some point, otherwise how do you explain her hair getting so frizzy in the mornings?
|"I gotta stop cruising around the motorway, its hell on my Hair"|
3/. WE WE WE SO EXCITED
|"Did she actually sing that?"|
4/. Some one else wrote the song
Ok, so this is the worst part of this whole situation, young Rebecca was a typical tweenage girl, who wanted to be a singer.
|This is normally as far as this ambition gets.|
So that means some got paid to write "Friday" actually got paid to write those lyrics, I mean if Rebecca had written them that would make sense, but a paid writer did it? Who is this man?
