There are soo many celeb covers of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” that we’re starting to get sick of them. But here’s why this one rocks:
1) Carly Rae Jepsen is in it! Does that disqualify it as a cover? Anyway, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots are in it too so it’s at least two-thirds of a cover.
2) Plain old guitars are so passe. This version includes a xylophone, tambourine, triangle and a kazoo. All the instruments you’d find in an elementary school. That means we could totally learn it, right?
3) The guy in the fedora makes us so happy. We want to dance with him.
The cover was filmed backstage before Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
