Or it's a case of an audacious gambit: the song wouldn't even get a millionth of the attention it's getting if it wasn't so goddamn stupid.
Rebbecca Black can't sing for shit, she's not a looker and the budget for the music video was considerably low, so if she was to release a proper song, nobody outside of her birth town would even know who the hell she was, but with the current anathema of the musical genre, now she's 22nd in the Social Billboard Top 50 (when last week she was 12nd), right above huge celebrities of the mainstream scenario like Usher, Linkin Park, Beyoncé, etc.
I guarantee you, Rebbecca Black will apply the "appeal to the lowest common denominator and ride the negative wave" formula as long as she can and get the sweet green. I mean, just look at the Billboard Top 100 Songs
and you can count with your fingers the amount of songs that don't use that formula.
Edit: but nonetheless I agree with Mal. More tits are always welcome :P
