Yes, even something with as abysmally low standards as Fox's Teen Choice Awards can still subsequently fail to meet them. Despite being responsible for giving out awards such as "Choice Hottie," "Choice Twit" and "Choice Vampire," the TCA's somehow managed to hit such a phenomenal low in 2011 that it calls into question why these things haven't appeared on e-bay yet.
If you do not know who Rebecca Black is, you are truly blessed.
The story, in summary, is that Black's mother paid $4,000 to have a music video produced by ARK Music Factory, a company that advertises as focusing on the recruitment and discovery of new singers, but would really be more accurately classified as a scheme to get desperate and delusional wannabes to pay their salaries (the music industry equivalent of a degree mill).
Black later shared the video on Youtube, where it was met with near-universal disgust. So much so that it became a viral "sensation" from people passing it around laughing at how bad it was, and later seeking it out to see for themselves if it genuinely was the worst song ever as was constantly being declared.
But instead of letting Rebecca Black have her fifteen seconds of shame before sliding off into obscurity again like so many delusional wannabes before her, Black was nominated for, and won, the 2011 TCA for "Choice Web Star," a category that seemed to have practically been invented for no purpose except to allow Black to win something.
Just as Sacha Baron Cohen's Golden Globe wins were like a great big middle finger to anyone that's ever tried to write a script, so too was Rebecca Black's TCA win to anyone that has ever tried to launch a singing career.
