We know, we know: the "Call Me Maybe" parodies have jumped the shark. We loved Carly Rae Jepsen's original video, with its innocent, "first love" vibe and Instagram-esque lighting. But then the "Today" show covered it. Then President Obama. Then Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, and then finally Colin Powell took a stab at it. Seriously, guys: enough.
Except it's not enough. Because until today, we didn't realize there was an emptiness in our lives, just waiting to be filled by shirtless Abercrombie & Fitch male models lip-syncing "Call Me Maybe."
Yes, the cheese factor is as high as the abs are hard. Yes, the song would be just as catchy if less-beautiful people were "singing" it. But there's just something special about seeing the guys you would actually like to call you (maybe!) sing "Call Me Maybe."
Below, 25 people who should never cover "Call Me Maybe":
Dr. Maya Angelou
Benicio del Toro
Sarah McLachlan & These Two Mounties
Colin Powell... Oh, wait, nevermind...
Donald Trump... Also too late...
