Some internet memes are so white hot they flame out after just a few days (ie. Charlie Sheen, “winning, duh”). Rebecca Black, however, is the gift that keeps on giving. The tween’s infectious yet banal single “Friday” has become a pop culture fixture over the past three weeks, having been covered and parodied by umpteen comedians, unknowns, and everyone in between. By far the best take on the tune came at the end of last week when Stephen Colbert spearheaded a triumphant performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Check out the video above and enjoy the surprisingly awesome arrangement by The Roots.

  1. okay, after having to be subjected to the original Frida song I found this one making me smile… and I still am. Good job wiping the smarmy jacked song out of my mind.

  2. Oh my gosh I just learned that even the worst song (I’m hating on the song – not the little girl, bless her heart) can be made awesome by pumping it the through the Roots and adding a little Taylor Hicks! Made my night!

  3. That was awesome. I never saw the original, but Stephen Colbert makes everything better, just like bacon.
