WATCH: ‘Doctor Who’ Cast Serenaded With TARDIS-Themed ‘Friday’ Parody

TARDIS Rave performs their Rebecca Black parody, 4/8/2011

Rebecca Black‘s infamous viral hit, “Friday,” has inspired a number of, erm…homages, shall we say? From Ice Cube mashups to Stephen Colbert‘s extravaganza on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, this autotuned-beyond-belief monstrosity has seeped into every crevice of the universe.

And now it has entered the Whoniverse: at the Barnes & Noble Doctor Who signing last Friday (April 8), a group of fans serenaded stars Matt Smith, Arthur Darvill, and Karen Gillan with their own Who-inspired parody of the song. (Hence my “Party in the TARDIS” Twitter tease on Friday.) Here’s video of the performance, complete with reactions from Matt and Karen. It’s fun fun fun fun.

What do you think of TARDIS Rave’s performance? How does it match up to the original?

His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
