I think it would be difficult to overstate how awesome this is.

Also, my appetite for "Call Me Maybe" in any form is alarming.

@EternalFootwoman Yesterday I was getting a coffee and "Call Me Maybe" came on in the deli and I hung around examining bags of potato chips so I could hear the whole thing.

Edith Zimmerman

@EternalFootwoman Mine is bottomless and all-consuming.

Daisy Razor

@EternalFootwoman Oh, thank god I'm not the only one.

steponitvelma

@EternalFootwoman Me too! Has everyone seen the cookie monster version?

@serenityfound

@EternalFootwoman Oh same. I like to tease both my teenage sister (who is way too cool for it) and my indie rock friend by singing it at every opportunity.

Bittersweet

@steponitvelma Yes, and it is THE BEST. I really hope those are actual office employees (and actual cookies).

realtalk

@EternalFootwoman how about the remix of call me maybe and semi-charmed life by third eye blind? it's the best ever

stonefruit

@cuminafterall Last weekend I spent two hours in the laundromat, and Call Me Maybe came on twice. It was amazing.

realtalk

@stonefruit every day on my 40 minute drive home, call me maybe comes on at least once, and usually twice.

@realtalk Bay Area radio is so totally awful, but in this case its total awfulness works in our favor :)

realtalk

@stonefruit EXACTLY. I was having a shitty day yesterday and then I got in the car to drive home, turned on the radio and BAM, I was singing along and everything was perfect again???

isitisabel

@EternalFootwoman I never even had a period of denial with this song. I loved it the first time I heard it. Possibly because I encountered the meme/jokes on tumblr before I ever heard the song, and I can't resist a good pun meme.

Daisy Razor

@realtalk Yes! It comes on every time I'm in the car, which is the only place I listen to the radio, so it makes errands and traffic that much more bearable.

@isitisabel I should be far past the point where I find the memes funny, yet I still laugh at every. single. one.

isitisabel

@Daisy Razor They really really shouldn't be funny anymore, but I can't help giggling! Even at the terrible ones.

tootsky

@isitisabel - I loved it the first time I heard it too, possibly because it was being lip-synced by the Harvard baseball team in a van. That's my visual every time I hear it, so...yeah. I enjoy this song.

Cat named Virtute

Only the ones that aren't Call Me Maeby Arrested Development parodies.

Maybe? I've been listening to that quarters one on repeat for the past week (thx Hairpin!)...it's as spaced-out and addictive as codeine but without the constipation.

OhShesArtsy

So I was at a dueling piano bar on Saturday night and they played Call Me Maybe. I wanted to act all, "what is this? I'm to cool to know what this pop-teen business is!" but I had (maybe snuck in) a bottle of whiskey and was with friends who were singing and... I'm so ashamed. It's the most shameful thing I did that night.

Edith Zimmerman

@OhShesArtsy SONG IS GREAT

@serenityfound

@OhShesArtsy NO SHAME.

I was watching Conan the other night, and one of his guests was the blond girl from Pretty Little Liars. And their conversation revolved mostly around a video of her that Justin Beiber shot on his phone of her lip synching Call Me Maybe on an airplane. And then they showed the video, which was no different than any 13-year-old's Youtube webcam video of them singing the song.

It was probably the most pointless and uninteresting interview Conan has ever had.

redheaded&crazy

should read: "are call me maybe remixes completing your life"

yes. yes they are.

realtalk

@redheaded&crazie CORRECT

RK Fire

I love, love the call me maybe parodies.

totallyunoriginal

This is one of my favorite "Call Me Maybe" things. (Jimmy Fallon and the Roots!!!)

And I apologize for not know how to make it a hyperlink.

Daisy Razor

@totallyunoriginal Questlove popping in and out of the corner of the frame cracks me up every damn time.

@serenityfound

@totallyunoriginal THIS. So. freaking. adorable.

Jizzcliner

I had a friend who went to a mathematics conference that was also attended by a professor we both had in first year. Apparently, every night he would get really drunk, talk about just having discovered reddit, and sing "Call me Maybe".

JadedStone

HEY ME JUST MET YOU. AND THIS BE CRAZZZZYYYYY. BUT YOU HAVE COOKIE!! SO SHARE IT MAYBE?

JadedStone

@Jade ok. so technically a parody and not a remix but WHATEVER. COOKIE MONSTER FOREVER.

Bittersweet

@Jade Before you came into me life me missed you so bad...

stonefruit

@Jade BEST PARODY EVER.

Slutface

I've done everything I can to avoid hearing this song. Yes, I'm THAT asshole.

sudden but inevitable betrayal

@Slutface Hey, I don't know you, and this is crazy - but don't be that asshole, just listen maybe?

sudden but inevitable betrayal

@sudden but inevitable betrayal ...or don't, obviously...it was just too good of an opportunity to pass up :)

@serenityfound

We just had a big family gathering, for which my younger sister flew in from Oregon. The morning after she got in (at 1am, thanks to United delays), I gently woke her up with "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but now it's morning....so get up, maybe?"

Is It a Hat?

You guys, I have NEVER heard this song. I'm only 26...how did I get so old and out of the loop?

i make lists

Hey I just met you/And this is crazy/So here's my number...PSYCH! That's the wrong number!

Youtube that. Seriously.

crisisalert

There's also this great Dan Deacon remix. Somehow, 147 times isn't enough?http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/03/call-me-maybe-cover-dan-deacon_n_1647582.html
