Cookie Monster Improves Upon “Call Me Maybe” Posted by Perry Michael Simon on July 10, 2012 Share: Twitter Facebook Google+ Reddit Email Cookie Monster singing a “Call Me Maybe” parody? Sure. I think I like this better than the original. No, I KNOW I do.

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. Tom Triumph says: July 12, 2012 at 1:05 pm I agree with Peter S.; the Fallon parody just shows the details those SS folks put into things. peter schmalz says: July 11, 2012 at 6:49 pm I like the way it makes fun of the Jimmy Fallon version of the song itzbizr says: July 11, 2012 at 2:19 pm oh em gee! BEST THING I HAVE SEEN ALL DAY! Overlord says: July 10, 2012 at 4:36 pm This is my favorite Cookie Monster song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0NCeRcUVXY&feature=fvwrel (The artist is Agallah and the beat is by Alchemist) RobJ says: July 10, 2012 at 1:29 pm Daaaaw, adorable. PS: Only know the original because of Howard Kremer. Patty Marvel says: July 10, 2012 at 1:14 pm 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 SlimCharles says: July 10, 2012 at 12:46 pm Nah, song is still annoying. William says: July 10, 2012 at 12:44 pm What is that guy doing with the rubber chicken in the background? David says: July 10, 2012 at 12:41 pm 1:01 = Tardis in the background Devilhead says: July 10, 2012 at 12:31 pm Call me out of touch, but I don’t even know the original tune.
