Argh! We'd almost forgotten about Rebecca Black, and now this... Jon Ronson is digging her back up for a documentary about "Friday." Best part of it: It's only six minutes long, because evidently that's how long it takes to explain how a magnificent song like "Friday" comes into being.

Ronson is best known as the author of "The Men Who Stare at Goats" and for his impressive background in documentary filmmaking for the U.K.'s Channel 4. His topics have ranged from the Holocaust to school shootings, so he's no shallow filmsmith. But this time, his subject is -- well, not Rebecca Black, actually. His topic is Patrice Wilson, the guy who wrote the song and produced the music video.

The director begins his documentary with "Friday" co-star Benni Cinkle. (She's the one kickin' in the back seat next to Black in "Friday.") She describes how she would try to sing in front of Wilson to get his attention, hoping he would want her to star in his next movie. It never panned out.

The clip picks up about 2:30 into the film, when Ronson finally meets Wilson. The first thing he says is that it took him about 30 minutes to write the song. It was midnight on a Thursday. Ronson then has Wilson compose a song for him to demonstrate his ability, and he ends it on that.

    Oh her again. She seems really sweet but maybe they can find other things for her to do. Like finger paint or something.

    I was really trying to forget that entire song and her terrible voice. Already have a headache now and that wasn't the actual video for the song

    No worse than the "rich" fool with the family name of Bieber.

    Then she should be in Mickey Mouse club not a rock video.

    It's not really a rock video and the reason she became so popular is because of the amount of people who hated her

    Why did they hate her? Seems like a nice kid.

    They don't hate her for her personality or who she is. They hate her voice

    She was just a blip on the radar. And to think the underground singers with talent struggle playing gigs in dead-end coffee houses...

    MILDLY interesting....I had a VAGUE curiosity about how it all went down. It's actually more boring than I ever thought. I was under the impression that she or someone in her family wrote it, and they put money up and all that.
    Rebecca is a nice girl and doesn't deserve all the flak she's gotten. The video is admittedly pretty bad and I think some coaching would have alleviated SOME of the bad singing....but she had her moment and people shouldn't be so hateful....and death threats? come on!

    Why can't she just go away?

    She did Friday, which was horrendous. Then she tried to break away from Friday and prove she was better than that, and she failed.

    Don't even need six minutes to talk about her or that atrocious song.
