Ok, I know we promised to stop talking about vacation and get back to the hard hitting bathroom product journalism that you’ve come to expect from our esteemed blog-site and we will but first I had to share one last great discovery of the Team Awesome Road Trip Adventure, the official 2012 summer jam!
Can you guess what it is?
At some point during the trip we discovered these weird music channels, not MTV or VH1 or MuchMusic, they were called Top Hits or something and they were the best (on a scale of relativity wherein “best” = worst, which is to say, my life.) So after a long day of adventuring, I’d snuggle down in an absolutely not drunken state and flip on the Big Hits music channel and we’d mock the videos. It was awesome.
We learned about all kinds of things, like weaponized Pepto-Bismol and that the Sexy Bitch guy did a song with Usher. And most importantly, Andy learned about Carly Rae Jepsen and the official summer jam of 2012- Call Me Maybe.
Being the pop culture connoisseur that I am, I was already hip to the fact that Call Me Maybe was the new Friday but Andy didn’t embrace it until he saw this-
If that didn’t make you smile then you are a heartless bastard that can’t feel joy. There’s a kazoo for Christ sake!
It is the song that launched a thousand memes-
and there are, of course, about a million and a half covers of it floating around now. Including this hilarious if uncomfortable (those slow pans are so creepy!) dog jam-
And this thoroughly delightful German version-
This dude’s videos led me down the most amazing pop music rabbit hole.
Now, continue your summer in happiness, punctuating all your great moments with a “before you came into my life I missed you so bad” because it’s true, before she came into your life you missed Carly Rae so bad. It’s ok, we all did.
Dude stop!!!! Edit!!!
It has just been brought to my attention that this exists-
Now, unless you are a member of my family, you probably don’t know that I’ve been called Cookie Monster my entire life so you wouldn’t realize at first glance that this video is the most perfect depiction of what it is to be Sarah that has ever been filmed.
Seriously, “we’ll get this snack flowin’ baby” describes approximately 9/10 of my life. Dates included.
This is a jam for the ages people.
