Friday Morning Diversion: The Big Ten Mascot "Call Me Maybe" Meme

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 13, 2012 3:40PM


Today in "get off Chuck's lawn" we look at the earworm that is Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." The catchy single is now a bona fide meme with new covers seemingly popping up every second. (We have a soft spot for Cookie Monster's take on the song.) You'll also find as many dance videos set to the song as covers, such as this one featuring Big Ten mascots. Chief Illiniwek is sadly missing.
