This lucky genius has taken a part of our childhood and, rather than ruining it, changed it in a way that doesn't fill us with boiling rage, which is usually what happens when we hear anything 'Call Me Maybe' related these days.
Just when you thought 'Call Me Maybe' was gone forever, it comes back again, like a terrible, terrible ex you hate, but you only live four blocks apart so what are you going to do? This time a group of guys from Denmark are playing it on bottles...

Thank heavens for nerds. One time when we were bored, we dug all the Doritos bits out of our couch.* This guy hacked his running watch so he could control the tempo of it with his heartbeat.

It happened to 'Call Me Maybe,' so it's no surprise that there is now a Chatroulette version of 'Gangnam Style' making waves on YouTube.

We genuinely thought there could be no more covers or tributes or parodies of 'Call Me Maybe.' One would think that once a song makes its way into a hobo camp, it's pretty much done. But this version has got something all the other ones don't -- a guy holding a machine gun and moonwalking.
Oh my gosh, we get it, you guys -- it's super-easy to write a song to the melody of 'Call Me Maybe'. And everybody ever whose fingers have grazed an instrument knows how to play it.
