Move over Rebecca Black’s Friday — a new teen music video is racking up dislikes on YouTube.
Rather than catchy crooning about the weekend — these two ladies are singing about a subject of social significance. Take a listen.

“Hot girls we have problems too. We’re just like you. Except we’re hot. The world needs to open their eyes and realize we’re not perfect and sometimes we lie.”

Wow.  The video by teen pop duo “Double Take” has already garnered nearly 2 million views — and more than 65,000 dislikes. It’s got quite a ways to go before it matches the 603,000 dislikes that Rebecca Black’s Friday has managed so far.

And the Huffington Post suggests — hot girl problems almost makes Friday look like a musical masterpiece.

“…possibly the harshest criticism Black has received to date may be this week's comparisons to Double Take...”

The video has inspired harsh criticism across the web... The Hot Hits calls it the worst song of the year.
And Pop Dust simply calls it — ridiculous. 

But is the video so bad on purpose? The Mirror reports...

“…some commenters have speculated that the video may have been intended to be intentionally terrible in order to become viral.”

Radio station KISS 92.5 claims to have tracked down the members of Double Take — 17-year-old’s Lauren Willen and Drew Garrett. The radio hosts asks the ladies on air — were they serious?

“We really wanted to do it for fun. We enjoyed writing a funny song and we thought it was really entertaining. FLASH It’s not real and it’s not fake. It is what it is.”

So not real. Not fake. To that —  a blogger for Crushable says...

“If you’re going to make a self-aware viral video, then give us something entertaining that’s a legitimate commentary on videos like Rebecca’s, which had no idea how bad it was, but that can also operate on its own as a bearable single.”

So what’s next for the ladies of Double Take? WPTV reports...

“The teens will graduate from high school in a few months. Though Lauren says she wants to major in international business and Drew in animal science, the girls hint their songwriting days may not be over.”
