Almost a year late (they’re risking their lives for us, so they get a pass), some U.S. troops in Afghanistan have filmed a shot-for-shot remake of a “Call Me Maybe” lip synch vid done by the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders. What is it about this song? Is there some sort of hypnotic signal buried in the music? Is Carly Rae Jepsen a kind of evil tech genius who created a digital earworm to enslave. I mean, shit, she’s had two singles since this mess. No one’s transported by those songs like they are by this one.
The good thing about this one is that the soldier boys are emulating every move of the cheerleaders, so there’s a lot of rubbing themselves, and showing off their asses and legs. And no one has a shirt on. It makes Afghanistan look like a very sexy place. Within reason, of course.
