Call Me Maybe! A viral video


 It’s a fun world we’re living in when good videos go viral!

Carly Rae Jepson’s infectious “Call me Maybe” is a fab example of a viral video. There are the privileged artists who make it to the coveted #1 on the Billboards, but she’s probably the first artist to have gone viral to such an extent , and to launch her into the global market. The only other similar viral “icon” I can recall is Chuck Norris? To celebrate our enjoyment of this, we’ve compiled a list of the Spoof videos for Call Me Maybe. The Star Wars one cracks me up!!

Here is the original Carly Rae video


First viral version: The Miami Dolphins. Originally the video was done as a bit of fun whist they were shooting their 2013 Swimsuit calendar in the Dominican Republic, this kicked off the explosion of parody videos!

Here are some more of our favourites:

The Obama version:

The Star Wars version:
