The title of "Most Disliked YouTube Video" is rather decisively taken by Justin Bieber's "Baby," which has over two million down votes, but the runner-up spot has just been taken by Rick Perry's much reviled new ad, "Strong." You know, the one in which he talks about what a travesty it is that gays can serve openly in the military while wearing almost literally Heath Ledger's exact costume from Brokeback Mountain:

And what video did Perry's ad take the second place spot with over four-hundred thousand dislikes? Rebecca Black's ode to those with complete and utter lack of musicality, "Friday," which was formerly the second most-hated with two-hundred and fifty thousand.

(Well, okay, it has ten thousand up votes. I guess there are lots of different kinds of perverse people out there. Perry sure thinks so!)

Numbers don't lie, Rick. You are officially worse than this:
