When I came across this cute video today, I was astounded to find out that apparently everyone and their dog (the last one quite literally, as you’ll see here) has done a parody of this song, ‘Call Me Maybe’.
Sadly, I had not ever heard this song before. I have no idea if it’s because I’m just tragically unhip, at an advanced age that misses everything in music these days, or just spend too much time in the World Of Pets. I’d investigate, but I’m frightened the answer will be anything from the first or second suggestions.
Thanks to the brilliance of the Intertubewebs, I am now not only up to date on the original song (I like it and the silly video clip, which this follows quite closely, actually), and a number of other parodies (all seen whilst trying to locate that darned original) that range from the weird to the funny to the silly lame.
If you’ve never heard the song before, I recommend googling it, or swathing through the quagmire that is youtube, to watch it yourself. While you’re at it, watch some of the other ones, too.
But I think the best and cutest is this version, starring Carly Rae Jepson’s Corgi alter ego. I love the piano playing cat. I was going to comment on why the cat is there, but by the end, you’ll see. And if you haven’t seen the original, then watch it, and the Corgi Rae version will be that much funnier.
Also, I’m pretty sure Corgi R J was bathing in a tub of wonderful Royal Treatment shampoo. That’s why she (? he?) looks so shiny and adorable by the end.
