If you live in Canada, and you listen to Top 40 radio, you’ve probably heard Call Me Maybe on heavy rotation in the last few weeks. The female vocalist behind the catchy pop track is British Columbia’s own Carly Rae Jepsen. Fellow writer Adam introduced us to the track a few weeks ago with a callout to DJs everywhere to remix the track. The song is stand-out on it’s own but a remix would really give it that extra edge. However, the video that accompanies the track has got a little something that is sure to keep her gay fans coming back for more… remix or not.
There are a few reason why I think this video (and song) is for the gays. You know what they say; “one you have the gays, you’re well on your way.” Let’s get the obvious reason out of the way. The male star of the video is HOT! Like wow. His “The Sky’s The Limit” tattoo is totally hot not to mention the other scribing on the right side of his torso. His name is Holden Nowell and is a Vancouver model. However, I do wish he would have soaked his body with that bottle of water while mowing the lawn. Watching him work on the car as well, totally sexy.
Back to the song. It’s pure pop perfection. The song is bubbly and catchy and lyrics are cute and easy to remember. It’s a recipe for a hit. Plus, as Rich recently said at a party, “it makes me want a cute romance.” So many of the homos have been sharing this track on Facebook and Twitter that I think Carly may have built some new demographics across Canada and this video definitely affirms it. Good for her. I think this may be the big break that puts Carly Rae on the map where she should be. This song is the lead-off for her new album titled Curiosity which is set for release in 2012. Can’t wait. Until then, check out the sexy video for Call Me Maybe after the jump. Trust me, you’ll love the ending.
