Is Cookie Monster’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ Cover the Best Yet?
It’s not exactly what you think. We swear, this one is a little different. Among the array of Carly Rae Jespen’s ‘Call Me Maybe‘ cover songs, this one from our childhood friend — the Cookie Monster — has got to be one of the better ones. Why? Well, he decided to hold onto only the beat and some of the lyrics, yet change most of them to suit something he wants dearly. No, he doesn’t want your number. He wants your cookies.
First off, Cookie Monster has to be about 75 years old at this point. Can we all agree on that? Even still, his fascination and obsession for cookies has never ebbed. That’s dedication! Take this sample lyric:
Hey, me just met you. And this is crazy. But you’ve got cookies. So share it maybe.”
The video follows Cookie Monster traveling through an office environment while ogling a bowl of cookies. Sadly for this blue-furred puppet, the bowl is constantly passed around, leaving it out of his short-armed grasp. Poor guy.
But don’t worry — in the end, the folks do “share it maybe.” Quite a wordsmith, that Cookie Monster.
