Upon the suggestion of a friend who thought the video was hilarious, BJ and I joined the craze of people who have viewed that stupid "Friday" music video on youtube. The video has a whopping 53 million hits, according to BJ, so I'm sure that most of you know what I'm talking about. If you don't, you really need to look at it to solidify confidence about your own intelligence, which is undoubtedly higher than every last person who was involved with the making of this video. (Up for debate in my mind is why the rapper in the car is in this video, because he seems a cut above everyone else. Desperation for a career, I suppose.) As we're checking out the video, we notice that Silas is incredibly interested and actually STOPS all activity (an uncommon occurrence!) to gaze at the laptop throughout the duration of the four-minute video. Just for laughs, we showed it again to him today and got the exact same reaction in his high-chair, with eating suspended so that he could stare with flapping jaw.
He just couldn't peel his eyes away. Sadly, I don't think it's because he thought it was a train wreck, but how can you blame a little guy? Exciting words popping up all over the screen, bright colors, smiling girl, extremely simplified lyrics...it's right up his alley. Please don't call DHS on us. We won't do it again!
