“Friday” Producer Gets “Happy” With Official Sequel To Rebecca Black “Hit”By: Josh Wolford - May 11, 2012
Well, at least Patrice Wilson has a sense of humor about the whole “Friday” cultural brainfart. The only problem is that his sense of humor has led him to record another terrible song. Oh well, it’s Friday – which means that by Saturday morning you’ll be H-A-P-P-Y. Or something like that.
You remember Patrice Wilson, right? He’s the guy who produced the YouTube Hall of Fame “Friday” video which shot young Rebecca Black to internet stardom. He also makes an appearance in “Friday,” as the guy rapping in the car.
His new song, “Happy,” is dedicated to all the haters out there. Kind of.
After “Friday” and all the negativity surrounding it, Patrice Wilson realized that the world has a lot of anger and hate. All we need is a smile on our faces to reunite as one.Spread the word and share the love!!!! Get H-A-P-P-Y.
After a two-minute self-deprecating intro, the song begins. It’s autotuned. There’s a shocked mailman, questionably young cheerleaders, a yoga class, a magic engagement, police malfeasance, racial stereotypes, and it all ends with a nice representation of the typical “hater.” Yeah, I watched the whole thing.

Did you ever think “Friday” would qualify as ear bleach?[h/t Mashable]
