Comment of the Day: Rebecca Black, One-Hit Wonder

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Yesterday, Pop Rocks was all about Rebecca Black, the teenager whose video for her song "Friday" has gone viral, thanks largely to a massive Twitter and Facebook campaign largely aimed at talking about how crappy it is. While a number of commenters accused us of a similar transgression (heaven forbid!), it was the comment of DanJC that made us LOL.

Rebecca Black = Robin Sparkles

For those of you who don't know, Robin Sparkles is the teen pop idol pseudonym for Robin Scherbatsky, the character played by actress Cobie Smulders on How I Met Your Mother. Her Canadian smash hit "Let's Go To the Mall" even has a video. Check it after the jump.
