“Skip Rope” was written and produced by Patrice Wilson, creator of Rebecca Black’s ultra-viral “Friday” and Nicole Westbrook’s “It’s Thanksgiving.” The song is performed by the somewhat disturbingly named Tweenchronic, a tween duo, with an appearance from Wilson at the end. The video features a young hispanic kid wearing a fake mustache and selling ‘illicit’ candy on a street corner. Kids line up to buy his product, including one of Tweenchronic’s singers, who receives a ziploc bag full of Pixi Stix.
