This song will take over your life - watch HyunA's 'Bubble Pop' now

So the Rebecca Black thing happened and it's out there and that's just something that we have to deal with, each in our own way.  Some of us will drink, some will turn to baby Jesus.  Others (us) will spend hours on YouTube looking for some sliver of hope that quality pop music is still alive.  And perhaps, if they are lucky, they will come across THIS.

It is by a thing called HyunA and it is Korean.  From the South, not the North, of course.  Though if Kim Jong Il devised this video as a plan to distract the globe while his malnourished hordes of sensibly dressed civilian armies looted our Wal*Marts we would have to hand it to him, because it is QUITE DIVERTING INDEED.

If you have any doubt that this is one of the finest female-led music videos in recent history, we ask only that you watch "the breakdown" that occurs from 2:15 to about 2:45, since there are not enough ways we could sassily misspell "work" to adequately describe the "bitch-I-will-slice-your-tit-while-I-steal-your-man" ferociousness that spews out of this woman in a span of 30 seconds.

Our current play count for the video stands at 6 for the day, but it's only that low because our phone died and we couldn't watch it on the subway.

On a side note: people on the 1 train during morning rush hour are not very accommodating when faced with maniacal shouts of "WHO HERE KNOWS BUBBLE POP AND HAS INTERNET ACCESS."


Sign of the Apocalypse #12 - The new Rebecca Black thing is actually happening

For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

A recent conversation we had with a British person about Rebecca Black:

Them: So 'Friday' was like, a joke, right?
Us: No.
Them: Ok but THIS song is.  Because she's all "in on it" now right?
Us:  No.
Them: My god.

Here is Rebecca Black's 'My Moment.'
