Best of YouTube: “Call Me Maybe” Crazed
It’s the song of the summer and with it’s catchy melody, it’s guaranteed to get stuck in your head at least once. We’re talking about Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit song “Call Me Maybe.” This week we’re bringing you our five favorite videos of the new jam to watch and re-watch again and again on YouTube.
Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, and more!
This video is the one that started it all for Carly Rae. After Bieber and his crew released this silly dance cover of “Call Me Maybe,” the world went crazy singing the simple and fun lyrics. This video is jam-packed with celebrities who show off their moves (and fake mustaches). We love this video because it lets us see how down-to-earth and real these stars can be.
We’ve been watching Brittany Nicole’s covers for years now. Her natural talent is amazing, and she has a very beautiful voice. We were so excited to see that she covered “Call Me Maybe” that we’ve been listening to it over and over again. Brittany slows the song down and changes the key, but it sounds effortless and lovely. This cover is definitely one to watch and listen to.
The Harvard Baseball Team
Who says boys can’t be playful? Better yet, who says that jocks can’t make super awesome videos to “Call Me Maybe?” The Harvard Baseball team has over 13,000,000 views on this hilarious video to Carly Rae’s song. The unexpected baseball players popping up from the backseat of their travel van will make you squeal, but it is the team’s coordinated dance moves that really got us laughing. Other teams have tried to follow in Harvard’s footsteps, but we can say that we saw the original baseball team do it first.
Cimorelli and MattyBRaps
Both of these YouTube celebs pack the punch with their talent. This time, they joined forces to come up with a clever (and completely adorable) parody of “Call Me Maybe.” The Cimorelli sisters are known for their a capella style videos, and MattyBRaps is a 9 year old cutie known for his rap covers of popular songs. This video shows the girls calling Matty a baby, but he wants the world to know that he’s old enough not to be considered one (hence the title “Don’t Call Me Baby”).
Ryan Good and Ashley Benson
Technically, we knew “Call Me Maybe” long before Bieber’s video came out… all because of this video right here. Ryan Good, the Biebs’ swagger coach, shows off his strange dance skills while on an airplane and singing along to Jepsen. Good’s girlfriend, “Pretty Little Liars” star Ashley Benson, makes a bubbly appearance in the video as well. Ryan throws his food all over the place while going crazy to the upbeat song and we laugh every time we watch it.
Who else is obsessed with “Call Me Maybe?” I hope these videos satisfy your Carly Rae craving. Let us know which video is your absolute favorite!
