‘Hot Problems’ Goes Viral For All The Wrong Reasons
It’s the viral video that’s being called the next “Friday.” In it, two moderately attractive teenage girls sing (and that’s putting it very nicely) about the everyday problems they encounter as a result of their attractiveness and how perfect they are.
The duo is called Double Take and the song is called “Hot Problems.” Though it’s getting a lot of views and generating a lot of discussion (and a lot of hate), it’s no “Friday.” Rebecca Black’s quasi-hit was actually catchy and fun to listen to. And laugh at, of course.
“Hot Problems” is just excuciating. It lacks all of the catchiness of “Friday.” The two singers are awful. If there was ever a time when auto-tune was sorely missed, this is it.
Thematically, it’s just as bad. On both sides of the coin, there is nothing redeeming to be found.
It’s difficult to decide whether one should feel bad for these girls. They chose to post a video on YouTube in which they, essentially, complain about being hot. You kind of have to feel bad for them when you read the comments on the video, though. Then you listen to the song and you are compelled to write a scathing comment to add to the thousands.
With any luck, this will all go away soon.
