“Call Me Maybe”, Gotye Hook Up In Mysterious VideoBy: Amanda Crum - July 17, 2012
Two of the year’s most popular, stick-in-your-head-until-you-want-to-stick-something-sharp-in-your-ear songs have now come together in a force of nature so powerful you might start booty-poppin’ at your desk. I’m serious. It’s catchy.
Pomplamoose–even the band name is catchy–have mashed up the infamous Carly Rae Jepsen song “Call Me Maybe” with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” and set it to a video steeped in action and mystery. When singer Nataly Dawn receives a strange gift on her doorstep, a fight ensues between her and Jack Conte–the other half of the band–over whether or not to use it.
Check it out, and try not to chair-dance too much.
