The Ambercrombie models were nice to look at, Fun.’s cover was, well, fun, and Jimmy Fallon and the Roots did a great job backing up the Carly Rae Jepsen with toy instruments. Though, I think it’s safe to say, you know you’ve made it when Sesame Street does a cover of your song.
Cookie Monster gets in on the “Call Me Maybe” action by putting a very Sesame Street twist on the summer hit. The beloved monster took a break from his vegetables, going back to his cookie roots, and asks his co-workers to “share it, maybe.” I think Cookie Monster channeled my soul when he sang this verse:
“You cookie showing
Me hunger growing
Get skim milk flowing
Get this snack going, baby”
That is exactly how I feel when I see cookies baking in the oven. So now, I just may or may not sing this song every time one of my roommates bakes some. I also may or may not have my very own Cookie Monster puppet to sing at them with.
Don’t judge me. I think the more pathetic I look, the more likely my roommates will take pity on me and give me a cookie. It’s not my fault Cookie Monster taught me how delicious cookies as a kid before he went the vegetable route.
