Fittingly enough, Katy Perry debuts her new music video this Friday. “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” is Katy’s fifth single from her multi-platinum album, “Teenage Dream”. The CD has already yielded four number one singles in a row. “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” certainly has a lot to live up to. To keep her fans happy til the video premieres on Friday, Perry is giving a sneak peek.
Based on the thirty second clip, it’s going the retro route with an 80s themed party. There’s lots of visual references from the “Me Decade”. If that wasn’t cheesy enough, Rebecca Black of “Friday” fame, makes a cameo in the vid. That being said, trying to pick her out in the party scene is sort of a “Where’s Waldo” game. See if you can spot her out. Perry certainly has a hard-on for Black. Not only has she included her in the video, but she’s incorporated the CGI bulletin board from Black’s video as well in the trailer. Plus, she also covered Black’s ubiquitous hit during one of her concert tour stops.
I’m definitely digging the track. It’s much better than “E.T.”, in my opinion. Plus the song incorporates a sax solo. If that doesn’t epitomizes the 80s, nothing will. Let’s start a campaign to bring back the sax solo ;)
Just in case you never saw Katy Perry’s version of Rebecca Black’s internet sensation, check it out below. I love how Katy Perry has a segment during her concert where she sings current hit songs. In the past, she’s covered “Whip My Hair“, “Only Girl (In The World)“, and “Born This Way“.
