I go away for a week and CSN releases a Call Me Maybe parody?! Never mind that it’s four months too late and none of the talent, expect Barkann, even attempted to mouth the words, I want to know how – in the hell – they went about getting Tim Panaccio to agree to not only take part, but also play a major role? Maybe it was the impending boredom of the NHL lockout… or Sarah Baicker’s red dress. Actually… yeah, probably Sarah’s dress. Whatever the case, most of the talent had fun with it, except for maybe Derrick Gunn, who treated it like he was finally getting his big hip hop cameo to raise his street cred with Eagles cornerbacks so he can get the perfect, bro-huggy Postgame Live interview.
As far as Call Me Maybe parodies go, nothing will ever top the massive spank bank deposit that is the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders’ version, but this ain’t bad and, for better or worse, it might be the best-produced piece CSN has put out. All that’s missing is a cameo from Sharla McBride or gratuitous shot of Sheena Parveen. Though Reuben Frank’s dancing (shape-shifting?) at the 2:55 mark almost makes up for those omissions. Almost.
Watch it after the jump, maybe.
