Every time we tell ourselves that we’re not posting any more, “Call Me Maybe” videos, that we’re just going to close the tab and do something more productive like hunting for Spotify playlists of dance-pop or going through twenty scrolls of Beyonce’s Tumblr, something comes along that makes us pause and need to post. For instance, the prospect of mashing up a song like this:
I threw a wish in a well
Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell
with a song like this:
My neck, my back…
[redacted because you know exactly how this goes]
Yep. Yep. It’s probably more accurate to call it a Khia remix, as the only Carly Rae in this is the “Call Me Maybe” instrumental. But as you know, “Call Me Maybe” has an amazing instrumental. The person who did the mashup says it’s “the anthem of the year [meeting] the anthem of our generation,” and we can’t really dispute that.
Listen below, but in case the above didn’t tip you off, this is not safe for a) work, b) church (it’s Sunday, after all) or c) prudish company.
