Remember 12-year-old Alison Gold’s awful, really, really bad song and video called "Chinese Food?" It played on practically every anti-Asian strereotype you can imagine. And still, somehow, it managed to making a shocking appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, debuting at number 29 this week.

The song and video are products of ARK Music Factory, the same company that brought the world Rebecca Black’s "Friday." Gold’s debut on Billboard’s Top 100 is due largely to the 5 million U.S. streams the video has gotten since it was uploaded onto YouTube on October 14. The track has also 1,000 downloads.
