Even Cookie Monster Likes Carly Rae Jepsen

The summertime reign of Carly Rae Jepsen continues. Have you given up and downloaded the song on your iPhone on your way out of a bar in Manhattan and then listened to it on repeat for the entirety of the 35-minute commute back to your apartment in Brooklyn? (Asking for a friend.) Well, you’re not alone, Jepfriends, because even the cookiest of Sesame Street denizens exhibits his typical lack of self-control when it comes to those insufferably infectious sounds of "Call Me Maybe."

That’s right: Cookie Monster has his own cover of "Call Me Maybe," aptly titled "Share It Maybe." Of course, the cover lacks Jepsen’s accurate use of subject-verb agreement skills, but Cookie Monster is, arguably, much cuter, and it has a much better lesson (read: sharing is caring, but, you know, don’t just give out your contact information to every attractive stranger). Plus, those eyes! It makes one long for a hot and heavy office romance with the blue monster, huh? (Nope!)

By the way, I’m working on my own hilarious parody, the chorus of which will go something like, "Here’s my number / Don’t get weird about it, OK? Call me if you feel like it, otherwise no skin off my bones. I have enough to deal in my life without your dramz."
