Have you guys heard ‘Call Me Maybe’? You need to hear ‘Call Me Maybe’.
It’s this song by this chick who was on Canadian Idol and didn’t win, but now she has the same manager as Justin Bieber so she’s finna blow up in a big way.
Her name is Carly Rae Jepsen, and even though her single has an official video, the one that went viral is a webcam creation by Bieb, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, and a score of their friends just goofing around in what appears to be someone’s mom’s kitchen (but is probably one of their own houses because they’re the type of people with career trajectories that allow them to be homeowners at 18).
ANYWAY, my friends and I got really, really into the song last week. It’s an illness. And it didn’t help that we found out her fans call themselves Jepfriends, because what an amazing addition to any vocabulary. Jepfriends.
So we did what any adult humans would do and made a few e-mails to some of our favorite Tumblrs, compiled an impressive amount of lipsyncing footage, and then Bobby edited them all together into one finished product. Is it glorious? Yes. Is it embarrassing? Not to me.
Frankly, I can’t wait for this to be in my Google results when I’m 30.
