Thanksgiving Theme Song

It's Thanksgiving song

Remember when Rebecca Black came out with “Friday” and it was largely considered the worst song to appear on YouTube?

Well, I guess we didn’t learn the first time.

The same brilliant minds have created a new video and this one is called, “It’s Thanksgiving.”


And watch the video all the way through if you want to puke and make room for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

This song has latched on to my mind like a facehugger from Alien. And not in a good way. Using another hapless girl whose family moved them out to Los Angeles seeking fame and fortune, this music producer contrived this saccharine crud to fabricate her fifteen minutes of fame. It makes me want to rip out my ear drums and beat them in front of his offices in protest.

Did I mention the song was released on November 7th and already had 154,000 DISLIKES?

I’m now OBSESSED trying to decode the true meaning behind this tune. The lyrics are so ambiguous:

It’s Thanksgiving
It’s Thanksgiving.
It’s Thanksgiving.

School is out.
I can shout.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.

It reads like Carl Sagan, doesn’t it? She’s literally unlocking the key to the universe with her simple bubble gum verses and hypnotic choruses. When she says “we’re gonna have a good time…” we all know she really means that we need to focus on space exploration to unite our countries as one planetary government, right?

And did I also mention the producer, Patrice Wilson, has f*cking gum in his mouth while he’s singing? No, I didn’t say a “gun” silly, I said GUM.

Have a great PRE-THANKSGIVING holiday workday everyone. Those of you who are working today, listen to this song a bafillion times and maybe it’ll render you brain-dead enough to cope.

    That was too awful for words.

  2. Colton says:

    Yeah, I’m for sure not going to listen to that song. With a preface like that, I was basically terrified that it would somehow start without my instigating it and thus ruin my entire day. Which is going to be filled with cooking yams, so that’s pretty damn important.

  3. Gosh, you didn’t transcribe the most nuanced lyrics for us to analyze a group:

    January was
    New Years
    April was

    I think my 8-year old wrote the song. No wait, he’s written songs with loads more depth. One goes, “Popcorn, popcorn, everybody loves it…”

      Whit, I purposely left those out. It was my intention that people listen to the whole song so they could receive the life-changing benefit of listening to those words direct from the singer.

      And for the record, your eight-year old IS a genius.

  4. wow, that was horrible, couldn’t even make it through the whole thing. Maybe this band will redo it like they did Friday.

  5. Jen says:

    Whitney has a good point. You have missed some very KEY lyrics. Like “ribs smelling up my neighbors crib”

    The thing I don’t think enough people realize is that Friday was a vanity gift project that got out of hand. Rebecca Black’s mum paid Ark Music Factory to write, produce the song for $4000. I’m assuming this is a similar deal.
    This is what we would get if music were really factory produced instead of what we get now which, while seeming shallow, at least has some merit.

  7. Erich says:

    Why, Charlie, WHYYYYY???

  8. Maura says:

    I couldn’t make it through. When the video starts alternating between the child sitting quietly on her professionally made bed and “making” stuffing by herself in a spotless kitchen… there is nothing less interesting to me than a boring lie.

  9. Isabel says:

    All i can say is…

    turkey (ay!) mashed potato (ay!)

    I wish we had thanksgiving in Australia now. Yum.

  10. NerdyLutheranChick says:

    According to this song, the fourth of July is in April and Valentine’s Day doesn’t exist

  11. NerdyLutheranChick says:

    I thought they were saying, “With the turkey, EGGS! Mashed Potatoes. EGGS!” And I was waiting for the Deviled eggs to show up.
