The latest parody of Rebecca Black's viral pop hit "Friday" rewrites the goofy, absurdly catchy tune from the perspective of Rebekah Brooks, the former News of the World editor at the center of the News Corporation's phone-hacking scandal in the United Kingdom. Though this video most definitely originated in its creators realizing that Rebecca Black and Rebekah Brooks are roughly similar names, the journalism scandal maps very well on the song, particularly when the heavily Auto-Tuned "Rebekah" sings "Phone hacking, phone hacking, yeah! / Sun, Sun, Sun, Sun" over its most irresistible hook.
