‘Rebecca Black’ Is the Google Search That Unites Us

Still from 'Friday' by Rebecca Black

Google Zeitgeist, the annual roundup of the most searched terms and other data-based trends, is usually a list of major news events and attractive celebrities that you, the savvy, Vulture-reading Internet user, would never actually type into Google. For the most part, this year's top ten list is no exception (Google+? Come on, everyone, it's on the same page!) — but we would like to briefly draw your attention to the No. 1 entry on this year's global Zeitgest list: Rebecca "Friday" Black.  Yup, we're all guilty on that front. The struggle between front seat and backseat is universal.
