ATLANTA -- It's Friday, Friday, and although the original version of Rebecca Black's "Friday" video has been pulled off YouTube, the infamous anthem is back.

A "Director's Cut" of the video was posted hours online after the original video was taken down.

A spokesman for the teen sensation told TMZ, "We can confirm that we submitted a Take Down Notice to YouTube as a result of the dispute we have with Ark Music regarding the 'Friday' video." 

Ark runs the YouTube channel that posted Black's initial video. Black's representatives accuse Ark of exploiting Black's image. Earlier this week, they tried to make the "Friday" video a rental.

"Thanks for all the messages regarding the $2.99 fee added to Friday video, I have NOTHING to do with this!!"13-year-old @MsRebeccaBlack tweeted on Tuesday. "PS...My Manager and Lawyer are on this and are going to get to the bottom of this! Stay tuned..."

Black's video returned Friday under YouTube's VEVO imprint, which is ordinarily used for musicians and record labels.
