Best Parodies of 2012: Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me, Maybe’

When Justin Bieber, Ashley Tisdale, Selena Gomez and friends did a cover for Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me, Maybe,” earlier this year the world wasn’t ready for the influx of parodies that were to follow the suddenly popular hit. From Olympians to Muppets, everyone was dishing out their own version of this summer’s ever-present tune.

With a new year fast approaching, we’re sure YouTubers everywhere will find newer songs to obsess over. So with that, we decided to have one last hurrah with Jepsen’s tune and give you our favorite “Call Me, Maybe” parodies of the year.

1) Cookie monster
We instantly fell in love with Cookie Monster’s sweet version of the song when we first heard it. With lyrics like “Hey, me just met you, and this is crazy / But you got cookie, so share it maybe” can you blame us?

2) Cimorelli and MattyB
Two popular YouTube acts, Cimorelli and MattyB collaborated on this fun parody in which the six-member sister group falls in love (of varying degrees) with a frustrated Matty B who pleads “I’m not a baby!” The boy-rapper’s solo part is pretty good too.

3) Baby Parody
Ahh young love. This baby version of the hit captures all the hilarious randomness that comes with being a tot and follows the blooming love story of the two adorable little stars.

4) Leia’s “Call Me, Maybe”
All we have to say about this parody is this: Darth Vader on the keyboard. Also, the end is laugh-out-loud funny.
