I’m at that age where my kid sings songs (and pulls dance moves) that I’ve never even heard of, and it makes me feel really, really old. So when my brother sent me a text that said ‘This #CallMeMaybe song is too catchy!’ I told him I’d Google it. Turns out it’s one of those Vevo Videos that take forever to load. And then, it’s sung by a girl called Carly Rae Jepsen. Um … okaaaay. I think she should change her hair though.
I spent the first few minutes drooling at the pretty boy mowing the lawn. Hot!! Then I noticed the song is fairly catchy and started singing along. By the time she got to her antics on the car, I was grinning. I have totally done that, pulling idiotic moves and sexy poses just to get a hot guy to notice me. In my case, it was wearing a green mini and heels just to go next door and take back the thermos my mum had borrowed. What. I was twelve. *facepalm*
In the video, when shit hits, she doesn’t melt with embarrassment, run inside, and wail herself to sleep. She simply laughs, picks herself up, and salvages the situation. Now that’s a girl with class! Pay attention ladies – guys love a girl that they can laugh with. *cheeky grin*
I liked the later parts of the video because she’s redeemed from her idiocy and finally gets to look cool as a rock chick. But my favourite part is right at the end … I would spoil it for you, but I’m still too busy laughing! This is totally my new theme song. Also, that young boy is HOT!!!
The second video of the day is one I bumped into on Twitter. I don’t spend much time on it these days. But once in a while, I bump into something that makes me bless all the gods of the internet, which is exactly what happened today. I’ve watched this video six or seven times but I’m no less disturbed, and it’s the kind of disturbance that I can’t look away from. Like the man said, be sure to wait for 1.07…
