Never Forget: The Worst Thanksgiving Song in the World is Officially One Year Old

11/27/2013 at 03:15 PM EST

We know, we know. It seems like it was so long ago. Maybe November 7, 2012 was just a simpler time. We were still fresh with a post-election high; we'd yet to suffer the crushing comedown of living in a post-Twilight world (Breaking Dawn Part 2 came out on November 16); and Psy still had a place in the nation's hearts and minds.

That's where Nicole Westbrook came in.

Or rather, that's where Patrice Wilson came in. He wrote "It's Thanksgiving" in probably as much time as it took him to write "Friday" for Rebecca Black, and sent it off to be performed by Westbrook. The rest is history.

Also like "Friday," it displays a curious focus on the passage of time. Where "Friday" counted down the days of the week in anticipation of the titular one, "It's Thanksgiving" also ticks off several major holidays (Christmas, New Year's Day, Easter, and the Fourth of July) to build to Thanksgiving, though it's anyone's guess as to why Valentine's Day or Halloween – to say nothing of Arbor Day – were excluded.



Fingers crossed for a Patrice Wilson "I Love You, Arbor Day" video.
