Rolling Stone called the viral music video for tween pop singer Rebecca Black's song Friday an "unintentional parody of pop music and potentially the worst song of all time." In October of 2010, local artists Poppa Joe and Iselda Gonzalez made a music video for "Summertime in Boise," a song with a comically similar lack of self-awareness, on YouTube. It's a sincere ode. And with lyrics like, "hit up Camel's Back maybe have a snack," and shout-outs to Eagle Fun Days, it's an instant classic--of sorts.
