Cookie Monster Improves Upon “Call Me Maybe”

Cookie Monster singing a “Call Me Maybe” parody? Sure.

I think I like this better than the original. No, I KNOW I do.

    William, I don’t think it’s a rubber chicken but a yellow toy saxophone. As Peter pointed out, it’s a parody of the Jimmy Fallon/Roots version (with classroom instruments!).

    I think a chicken would have been funnier, though.

    The song’s still annoying, but I love the lyrics in this version.

  2. Tom Triumph says:

    I agree with Peter S.; the Fallon parody just shows the details those SS folks put into things.

    I like the way it makes fun of the Jimmy Fallon version of the song

    Daaaaw, adorable.

    PS: Only know the original because of Howard Kremer.

    This is good, but I still prefer Cookie Monster’s cover of Tom Waits’ “God’s Away on Business.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5X4N2exOsU

  8. SlimCharles says:

    Nah, song is still annoying.

  9. William says:

    What is that guy doing with the rubber chicken in the background?

    1:01 = Tardis in the background

    Call me out of touch, but I don’t even know the original tune.
