USC students gathered outside the Russell House on Friday to create a video for a competition for comedian Daniel Tosh's TV show.

Tosh asked colleges across the country to submit a video and he'll host an episode of his show Tosh.O on the winning school's campus.

The video students here at USC decided to create was a spoof on Rebecca Black's Youtube video "Friday"…which has gone viral with nearly 50 million views in just one month.

Student Joey Thompson organized the production.

"It's a memorable song. You either love it or hate it," Thompson said.

Youtube reports that of the 750,000 people who have liked or disliked the "Friday" video, 90 percent of voters have clicked the dislike button.

USC students are hoping the song, which has been mocked on late night shows like Conan and Jay Leno's Tonight Show, will catch the eye of the Comedy Central comedian.

Students have this message for Tosh.

"If you don't choose our video, we're going to come outside your offices in Berkeley and sing this song," said Thompson.
