Video Of The Day: Katy Perry "Last Friday Night"

Katy Perry premiered her music video for "Last Friday Night" at FunnyorDie.com. Appropriate place for a premiere seeing how hilarious this video is.

The whole video plays like an homage to the 80's, with a Sixteen Candles-like storyline of nerd-girl Kathy Beth Terry (Katy Perry) throwing a raging party at her parents' house and ending up awake in bed with some hottie shirtless guy (similar to Farmer Ted and Jake Ryan's girlfriend waking up in a Rolls Royce in a parking lot after the party at Jake's house). The opening and end credits are also very John Hughes-like. The opening scene of a paperboy biking through the neighborhood delivering papers and the end credits of outtakes and bloopers were pretty common-place in 80's movies.

There are cameos aplenty in this video - Glee's Darren Criss and a wheelchair-less Kevin McHale are party-goers. Rebecca Black (yes, that Rebecca Black) plays Katy's best friend. Corey Feldman and Debbie Gibson are her parents, Kenny G. is her uncle, and Hanson plays the band in the backyard.
