Rebecca Black’s Friday Gone From YouTube
[ Social Media]

Say it ain’t so!

It looks like, at least for right now, you are going to have to rely on parody videos to get your “Friday” fix, as the official video has been pulled from YouTube.

The much loved, much hated viral sensation had over 167,000,000 views at the time of its disappearance. The official video, hosted by ARK Music Factory, is no longer available and will instead show you the all too familiar “meh” face along with the explanation “This Video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black.”

So it looks like Miss Black herself took the video down. Earlier in the week, TechCrunch happened upon the official video when it was being presented as a $2.99 rental. It didn’t stay that way for very long though. It’s possible that it was simply a glitch at YouTube, but it’s also possible that ARK Music set it up that way to either turn a profit or get people talking about the video again. Pulling the video altogether would also be quite the PR stunt. We’ll have to see if that’s what this is.

YouTube has given the same generic statement to both TechCrunch and Mashable, saying –

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.

Awesome, thanks for the info YouTube.

Of course, this now begs the question – What in the hell are we going to do to celebrate the weekend at the workplace? For instance, your annoying office-mate is no longer going to be able to blast it at full volume at soon at 5:00 rolls around. What will step up to fill the viral void left by this removal?

For now, all we have are the parodies. And this one with improper lip-reading is by far the best (Rebecca Black says Nazis). Enjoy.
