Best Parody Yet: Cookie Monster Drastically Improves 'Call Me, Maybe'
Well, here we are: listening to the parodies has become vastly preferable when compared with the prospect of ever hearing "Call Me, Maybe" again.
This is the point when Carly Rae Jepsen should really start considering new lines of work.
In all fairness, it's not that her original version is necessarily bad....
That's a complete lie.
It is, actually, just that. It's so bad, that the parodies are far, far more clever and engaging. It's songwriting so lazy, unremarkable and cliché-addled that it's even a mystery that pop fans couldn't find anything better to enjoy. Still, it caught on so fast, funny knock-offs inevitably followed. Some of them are actually witty enough that, with time, people will probably forget the original.
To infinite surprise, the good folks of "Sesame Street" concocted maybe one of the best yet: Cookie Monster's "Share It, Maybe."
