‘Overly Attached Girlfriend’ Offers a Freaky Cover of ‘Call Me Maybe’
Earlier this month, a fan of Justin Bieber scored all sorts of internet notoriety with a spooky stalker-like video entry into a contest in which the pop prince had female fans cover his hit “Boyfriend’ as ‘Girlfriend.’ The parody was the topic of intense analysis on Reddit, and the fan’s wild-eyed look sparked the Overly Attached Girlfriend meme.
With lyrics like “Remember you’re mine/You say you’re dating/I know you’re kidding/I’ll be waiting,” she has turned Jepsen’s sweet song about a crush at first sight into a terrifying tune about an obsessed stalker who can’t take a hint.
If there was any doubt as to whether or not the young lady behind this and the Bieber video is on the joke, it’s been put to rest. Yes, she knows how completely unhinged she looks like in the clips, and she’s having fun with it.
While we’d like to see more parody videos from her, we are a little worried about what could happen to us if we spend too much time staring into her crazy, crazy eyes.
