“Call Me Maybe” Gets Parodied By Cookie Monster

Though “Call Me Maybe” somehow got through our Song Of The Summer competition without being declared the winner, the communal obsession with Carly Rae Jepsen‘s hit single is still going strong. Back in June, Sesame Street sent out a jokey tweet referencing Carly’s song: “Cookie Monster: Me just met you. Dis is crazy. But me love cookies! Gimme, maybe?” People couldn’t stop retweeting it, which led to Cookie Monster filming his own parody of Carly’s song.

Renamed “Share It Maybe”, Cookie Monster sings about sharing the things you love — namely, cookies. The single’s official video goes unparodied, though Cookie teams up with a bunch of musicians playing classroom instruments a la Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. All this song needs at this point is a Weird Al parody and its arc in pop culture will be complete.
