It's Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving: Do we have another Rebecca Black on our hands?

Remember Rebecca Black? If you don’t I truly envy you. The genius behind Black’s viral sensation, “Friday”, is back with another mind-boggling ode to turkey and mashed potatoes.

From the dark recesses of YouTube comes a song so bad and utterly pointless it will leave you wishing you didn’t have access to the internet — yes it’s that bad.

“It’s Thanksgiving” is not just a song really, it is a celebration of the iconic November Thursday night dinner.

Patrice Wilson really has outdone himself here with this new song, which shares a number of classic traits of his other works. The young girls, the terrible autotune, the lack of any lyrical talent and of course rapping. Interestingly enough, the random black man partying with a bunch of 12-year-olds isn’t the one rapping — the little girl is.

The child singer here Nicole Westbrook is probably aiming “to recapture the magical campiness of Rebecca Black’s viral sensation Friday,” as Mashable’s Jeremy Cabalona summaries.

To help your weekend come a little sooner and perhaps make you feel better that it is Friday, enjoy (or gag at) the song all too obsessed with turkey and mash potatoes.

I wonder how long it will take before a Tumblr is set up just for this.

And if that doesn’t convince you that Patrice Wilson and his PMWLive crew are on a dangerous music mission, check out another of his artist’s fun in Wonderland. I am not sure what it is about, but she is in a wonderland and it is real.

Then there is Ellie Soufi getting all ‘Hysterical’.

HatTip: Mashable!
