I know what you are probably thinking Krisrael Geek Chic readers: “Why is Mo talking about music this week?! Isn’t that Krisrael Music Contributor Derek’s specialty? What is she thinking?” Yeah, I get it. But hear me out! Krisrael Geek Chic prides itself in covering everything geeky from Star Wars to Cosplay to Math Olympics to gaming to pop culture. This summer, a cultural phenomenon occurred with the annoyingly infectious pop song hit “Call Me Maybe” by Canadian Idol’s own Carly Rae Jepsen:

Call Me Maybe  – The Original Version by Carly Rae Jepsen

Because of this cute and bubbly pop singer geekette from our neighbor to the north, hundreds of  YouTubers have created music video spoofs in honor of  what I believe is the 2012 song of the summer.

Below are highlights of the best of the best. . .

Mo’s Geek Chic Take: Charles Caleb Colton once said, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” I hate to break it to you folks, but once someone or something is found to be popular, it goes VIRAL fast but in the form of parodies. In our tech-savvy age, parodies are the sincerest form of flattery instead. Carly Rae Jepsen, this is your summer.  Embrace it!

Hey, I just met you

(Sorry. . .I couldn’t resist! After all she IS a pop culture superstar!) 

Until next time: Stay true. Stay YOU. Stay geek chic! -Mo
