"Call Me Maybe" has proven that to have a successful music video, bubblegum pop stars need no fancy directors or million-dollar budgets. They just need a webcam and a copy of iMovie. The Bieber-ific unofficial video has amassed over 33 million views on YouTube since debuting in February, even more than the original. But most agreed that there was just one thing that the song was missing: Cowbell.
Of course, Will Ferrell left a lasting impression in Western civilization forever after prancing around in a too-small T-shirt on "Saturday Night Live" while recording Blue Öyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" with the instruction from Christopher Walken to make sure that the song reaches peak cowbell.
There's obviously a natural progression from BÖC to CRJ, so please enjoy this remix of "Call Me Maybe" that's probably produced by Bruce Dickinson.
