Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” may not be #1 (yet), but it’s clearly the go-to tune of the Internet and all its web-famous brethren. The hit single gets a remix courtesy of Tumblr rapper (that’s a thing now) Kitty Pryde, who remixes Carly’s song into a snoozy number with some bagpipe-sounding-sax and rechristens it “Give Me Scabies” for her mixtape haha im sorry. We honestly don’t know which part of that sentence we hate the most.

Meanwhile, we retreat back in Internet time to 2007, with “Chocolate Rain” maker Tay Zonday offering up his own take on Ms. Jepsen’s single, lowering it several thousand octaves. Check out both below, and let us know which is more insufferable. Hard, isn’t it?
