Video: Rebecca Black parody election style
Yes, you've read that right: a parody of Rebecca Black's Friday has hit YouTube that takes on the Canadian election.
The video, as well as an interview with the creator, is after the jump:
The video, aptly titled Monday, was made by 32-year-old Angela Krajaefski of Waterloo, Ont. She said she made the video after watching Conservative Leader Stephen Harper began attacking Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff.
"I felt bad for him," Krajaefski told the Star.
The song itself is a parody of Friday, but the video's style is modelled after a video Cee Lo Green posted for his hit song F--- You.
"Writing the lyrics took a really short amount of time, about an hour between my husband and I," Krajaefski told the Star.
The actual production of the song and the video took two weeks. Krajaefski said she sang lead and background vocals, while her husband performs the rap and mixed everything together. The final product was posted to YouTube on Saturday.
While the video may come across as partisan, partisan (yeah!), Krajaefski said ultimately she hopes just one thing comes from it.
"All I hope to accomplish is that people go out and vote," she said. "Whoever they support, that's fine with me."
