A couple of weeks ago I did a post about the song by Carly Rae Jespen called “Call Me Maybe.” The pure mount of parody videos that it has spawned is amazing in itself. But when I posted the video on June 8th it had 98 million views. Now It is part of the exclusive 100 million view videos and is currently sitting at 120 million. Justin Beiber can’t even touch this video this summer. His huge smash hit “Boyfriend” only has 98 million hits.
The song is so freaking catchy its no wonder it has that many views on Youtube. It also offer something that a lot of music videos don’t these days… a story. She still has a very long way to go because the top 5 of all time have at least 500 million views on Youtube. Justin Beiber’s Baby video is the number one video of all time and the first video to reach half a billion views.
She might have a chance of cracking Youtube’s top 30 all time list. The number 30 spot is currently being held by Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” which has 208 million views. Just a stones throw away for the catchiest song since the Macarena.
