Apparently there are a zillion versions of “Call Me Maybe” out there…

But I’ve actually only seen three, one of them just today.  That was by the US Olympic Swim Team.  I’ve seen the Cookie Monster version, which makes me wonder how it changes Sesame Street when such parodies are made specifically for older viewers, rather than just to make sure parents aren’t completely bored, like they used to be, even if the actual TV show remains unaffected.  Especially when said television show has been taken over by Elmo, much to everyone’s regret.

But the third is my favorite:

It should be annoying, especially when the clips go by so fast as to disorient you. I think it’s the Gunguns marching in time to the beat that does it, though; I cannot watch this without grinning.
