Video: Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” As Sung By Cookie Monster
Cookie Monster took on Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit tune “Call Me Maybe”—with amazing results!
Ever since Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” debuted in September of 2011, it’s been steadily rising on the charts; and ten months later, it shows no signs of losing steam. Indeed, it’s been declared by many to be “the song of summer 2012.” But you know what the mark of a real hit is?
That’s right: Viral videos.
Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, “Call Me Maybe” has seen a wide variety of covers over the past several months. President Barack Obama took a shot at it; so did a bunch of shirtless Ambercrombie models; an adorable corgi stole our hearts with her bark-tastic rendition… and now, it has been covered by perhaps the greatest star of them all: The one and only Cookie Monster.
Naturally, Cookie, with his blue fur and his unique understanding of grammar, put his own spin on the tune; entitled “Share It Maybe,” he encourages people who may happen to come across a delicious cookie or two to—that’s right—share it, maybe. It’s nothing short of genius, and obviously it is exactly what you need on a Thursday morning. So here you go!:
This, my friends, is what makes Sesame Street great. Just in case you somehow forgot how the original song goes, here’s the official video for “Call Me Maybe:”
Parting words: If you got cookie? Share it maybe. Cookie Monster would want you to.
