“Friday” becomes “Sunday” on YouTube

As overnight Internet sensation Rebecca Black’s YouTube video “Friday” approaches 100 million views, the Community Christian church responds with a parody, “Sunday.”

Creating a rendition of the “wannabe weekend-party anthem,” and giving it a holy twist, is the mission the Creative Arts Staff at the Community Christian Church gave itself.

“Sunday” lyricist Eric Bramlett told The Christian Post, “We wanted to make this thing as close to the original as we could, while trying to invite people to the Easter weekend service. We thought we could use this to spread the love and spread the fun so our attendees could invite their friends to our church too.”

With addictive lyrics just like the original, “It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday ” is replaced by “It’s Sunday, Sunday, head to church on Sunday.”

It’s all about worshipping and looking forward to the Easter weekend for Sadie B., the main girl in the music video who happens to also be Bramlett’s 12-year-old daughter.

While Rebecca Black ponders things like which seat to take in her friend’s car, Sadie B. has more, or rather equally, important things to think about like … front pew or back?

“Sunday’s” popularity is quickly rising on YouTube. Released April 6, “Sunday” is already approaching 1,000,000 views.
