Barack Obama wants you to call him, maybe

Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is this year’s Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” Sorry, but it’s true! They are both totally nonsensical songs with lyrics that on the surface seem…off…and on closer inspection are not only grammatically incorrect but are composed entirely of stream of consciousness tween diary entries. (“Before you came into my life,
I missed you so bad”? What does that even mean?)

So of course, “Call Me Maybe” is the first viral election season song that has been mashed up with President Obama’s speeches to create a wonderful, chaotic piece of YouTube. It’s the “Obama Rickroll” of 2012!

Now, if we could only get the guy who made this to add in some Len, and maybe some animal noises, we’d be all set for mashup season.
