Internet singing sensation Rebecca Black has quickly rocketed to the pinnacle of pop culture for her cheerful smash hit, “Friday.” Yesterday it was announced that ESPN seeks to capitalize on her sudden fame by having contracted Black to sing the new theme for Monday Night Football.
“There’s no downside,” MNF director Chip Dean stated in yesterday’s press conference. “Hank Williams’ theme for Monday Night Football was a classic, an iconic song that will always be associated with the greatness of the sport. But it’s time that we start going after the YouTube generation, and Rebecca Black is one of its brightest stars at the moment. It’s a perfect fit for us.”
Dean was unable to disclose details of the show’s new theme, save that its lyrics would inform the audience that Monday comes after Sunday, which comes after Saturday, which comes after Friday. Furthermore, the song will mention that Tuesday comes after Monday, Wednesday comes after Tuesday, Thursday comes after Wednesday, and Thursday is followed by Friday.
The director was highly optimistic about the public’s reaction to Rebecca Black’s reimagining. “People are going to love it. It’s going to be fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!”
(If it’s half as good as this, football’s due for a renaissance!)
