SYNYSTER GATES’ DAD GETS IN ON THE REBECCA BLACK/”FRIDAY”-MANIA

140

Brian Haner, a.k.a. “Guitar Guy” or “Papa Gates,” is the father of Brian Haner, Jr., a.k.a. “Synyster Gates,” of Avenged Sevenfold fame. Like his son, the elder Haner is a guitar player — currently, I’m told, he’s rocking out with… Jeff Dunham. Yep. The dude with the puppet. Awesome, I know.

ANYWAY, Mr. Haner has now made “Saturday,” the one-bajillionth viral response to Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” It really is amazing how quickly this shit happens today; “viral” almost doesn’t do it justice. And all this “Friday” nonsense has happened so very fast that I’m afraid I’m already over it.

So while I appreciate, in theory at least, Papa Gates’ dark sense of humor, and the fact that he’s probably cooler than most dads (or more pathetic, maybe, depending on how you look at it I guess)… well, frankly, this is about as funny as you’d expect from a dude who spends his time working with Jeff Dunham.
