Call Me Maybe
Another stone-cold banger of a pop song. Apparently it started life as a folk song. The ol’ Swifteroo.
If you’ve seen the video for this, you’ll notice an M. Night Shyamalan-style twsiter of a storyline. But not in Philadelphia. Honestly, I could see it coming a mile off. Carly Rae Jepsen is sprawling over her car, performing what is effectively a wet t shirt competition – where she’s the only competitor – at you, you’ve noticed her and are doing nothing. What are you, gay? Sorry, spoilers. Should’ve mentioned that before.
Personally, I think the real twist is the (straight) actor’s Jason Donovanesque post-shoot attitude to appearing in the video and being associated with homosexuality later in his career. The fallout of which obviously helped Jase massively.
Poor bloke, though. What a burden. *rolls eyes*
