YouTube Video of the Week: Katy Perry Lip Syncs “Call Me Maybe”
In case you missed it, this week’s viral video spotlight is Katy Perry’s lip-sync of Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy pop song “Call Me Maybe.”
Perry, who recorded the video poolside during her off-time from Coachella, joins a host of other celebrities who have also famously lip-synced the song, including Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, Big Time Rush, James Franco, and more. There’s even a Tumblr dedicated to fans videos.
What we love best about these celebrity videos isn’t the cheesy phone dances or the drunken dance moves. It’s that the bring celebs into the real world, closer to the lives of fans who have made countless lip-sync videos in tribute to their favorite artists.
Although Bieber and co.’s video is definitely the most popular so far with over 35 million hits, Perry’s garnered a respectable 550,000+ views in a week. Either way, the song’s probably going to be stuck in your head for several weeks after watching. You’re welcome.
