The Worst YouTube Video of All-Time? (And the Most Awesome)

I’m sure that by the time this blog is posted, you will probably have heard or seen the video for 13-year-old Rebecca Black’s song, “Friday.” It has been up on YouTube for over a month and a half and to date has garnered over 63 million views. But as far as the reception goes, let me put it to you this way: YouTube has a rating system where you can either thumbs up or thumbs down a video. To date, the video for “Friday” has over 138,000 thumbs up ratings and (drumroll, please) over 1.1 million thumbs down ratings!

Whoa, back up. 1.1 million thumbs down ratings?! Is that a record for YouTube? Could this song officially be declared “the worst YouTube video of all time?!”

So far, I haven’t come across any other videos who have more thumbs down ratings than that, so I guess it must be true. I have seen the video itself and found myself facepalming in dismay. All I can say is wow… just wow.

On the other hand, I also came across another viral video that was really awesome and very funny too. If you saw the Friday video, I’m sure you’ve seen this one:

In this video that was filmed in Australia, a kid decided to walk up to another kid about twice his size and starting punching him in the face. Then without warning, the bigger kid picked up the bully like a sack of potatoes and like a wrestler body-slammed him into the ground. To me that was probably the best case of epic pwnage that I have ever seen on YouTube. I couldn’t stop laughing, especially when the bully couldn’t try to walk afterwards.

However as a result of the victim’s brilliant act of self-defense, he was suspended from school, which I think is not cool. This kid should be viewed as a hero or at least respected, not suspended for standing up for himself. Don’t worry, this kid’s a hero in my book.

But to conclude this I just want to say that if that “Friday” song ends up being this year’s YouTube prank (Rick Roll, anyone?) for April Fools Day, I’m really gonna flip my top.
