“Call Me Maybe” doesn’t possess much depth, but it is an extraordinarily cute song about a girl who is head-over-heels in love with a guy and is waiting for him to call her. Compared to all the other club/drugs/sex-centered songs on the radio nowadays, “Call Me Maybe” offers a refreshing respite coupled with a catchy chorus and well-written verses. It’s the antithesis of trashy and meretricious – it’s fun and lighthearted, sort of like a love at first sight type of thing.
The video itself consists of Jepsen fawning over and falling for her stunningly beautiful neighbor. After admiring him from afar, she attempts to seduce him by washing her car in his presence.
She then falls off of her car and passes out, awakening to Nowell’s smiling face. They laugh about her clumsiness, and he watches her sing for him. After her performance, she tries to give him her number…
And that pretty much sums up the entire video. One of my friends pointed out that Jepsen is actually 26, yet in the video she manages to pull off a much younger-looking persona. Also, I’m curious as to whether Holden Nowell is actually gay in real life. Not like it matters – it wouldn’t affect his attractiveness or anything – but there have been online rumors though no solid confirmation from him.
Would anyone like to share their thoughts on “Call Me Maybe” – either about the song itself or for the music video? If the only reason you read this post was for Holden Nowell, you can comment about him too. So I pretty much spent my morning collecting screenshots of a shirtless guy… well. Time to volunteer. See you guys next time!
