Hit song 'Call Me Maybe' has met with great success for Carly Rae Jepsen, the Canadian recording artist and singer-songwriter from Mission, British Columbia. The song reached the No. 1 spot on The Billboard, the Canadian Hot 100, and also went to number-one in 19 other countries. But we wonder if the former Canadian Idol participant, ever visualized how often her song would get spoofed on YouTube?

And the Florida Gators supplied some additional synchronized flavor with their version:
But not to be outdone, Texas State did a raunchier version (consider yourself warned) called "Call Me Maybe Harvard Baseball Parody," which was interspersed with ... the Bagel Dance?
And yes, in true Leno style, even The Tonight Show got in on the act for the upcoming Presidential election:
If you're not sick of the song already, and still have a remote interest in the original video and song, you can watch it here.
Oh Carly Rae Jepsen, what have you started?
