Obsessed with "Call Me Maybe?" You're Not Alone

As much as everyone might be sick of Carly Rae Jepsen's smash hit "Call Me Maybe," none of us can get the song out of our heads, much to our chagrin. Let's admit it: We're all secretly jamming out when we're all alone in our car or bedroom. We're not proud of that, but it just keeps happening and we can't stop it.

Call Me Maybe Obsessed is full of memes that each utilize a pop culture reference to make a play on the lyrics of the chorus.

More on what's awesome about this week's Tumblr of the Week after the jump...

On Call Me Maybe Obsessed, you can check out a clip of Carly Rae Jepsen rocking out on classroom instruments with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, and a dramatic reading of "Call Me Maybe" done by some of the staff of NPR.

The blog also features cutesy, tongue-in-cheek parodies like this one about Midol: "Hey, here's some Midol/Those cramps are crazy/Here's the bright side/It's not a baby." We hope there aren't too many dudes out there that have business cards to attract the ladies that feature "Call Me Maybe" lyrics like this one does.

Naturally, Call Me Maybe Obsessed made sure to include the clip compilation video of Obama kind of singing "Call Me Maybe" as well as the viral video of the Harvard baseball team.

Oh, CRJ fans, you crack us up. But in all seriousness, we really hope that song dies off before Carly is in Phoenix to open for J. Biebs in September. (But we're not holding our breath.)

Carly Rae Jepsen is scheduled to perform Saturday, September 29, at Arena in Glendale.
