The song has been certified five-times platinum in Australia, four-times in Canada, and has sole over four millions copies in the United States. It's sparked countless covers by amateur and professional musicians alike (including an acoustic version performed with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots) as well as parodies featuring everything from Star Wars to the cookie monster, and even members of congress.
Carly Rae Jepsen—a ripe 26 years old compared to her fellow Canadian pop star Bieber—has only gone upwards from there, rising out of internet fame into real-life celebrity recently when she swept the Teen Choice Awards last Sunday. As if to inaugurate her into her new celebrity status, shortly after her victory she was slammed with a sex tape rumor reported by various entertainment sites like E Online and Perez Hilton. Crazy morning, she tweeted yesterday in response. Discovered that someone put up a sex tape claiming to be me. Ridiculous. Obviously not me.
Now, Jepsen is back with the new music video Good Time, featuring American electronic musician Owl City. But will Good Time be as huge as Call Me Maybe? Really, the question should probably be: can anything be as huge as Call Me Maybe?
