Call Me Maybe — The Best LipDubs/Covers/Supercut

posted by Nell Minow

The song of the summer is Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” and I love the love it has inspired by people who post their own covers and lipdub versions.  Here are some of my favorites.

Jimmy Fallon and the Roots join Jepson herself for a version played on kindergarten instruments.

The song really took off when Jepson’s fellow Canadian, Justin Beiber, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Tisdale made a silly video version.

Podust did a supercut of the best of the zillions of fan versions with everyone from the Harvard Baseball team and drag queens to James Franco and Kathy Lee Gifford.

There are also videos from Katy Perry, Staples Center, Colin Powell and Gayle King, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, and an audio-only version (of course) from NPR.

    My daughter Chloe organized a faculty flash mob with the song as her HS senior project!
