Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope recently watched the video for Jepsen's hit song as part of their ICP Theater series for Fuse -- a take-off of Mystery Science Theater 3000 -- and were surprisingly complimentary of the Canadian pop singer in their own special way.
The video tells the story of Jepsen falling for a very attractive and often shirtless boy who lives next door. At one point in the video Jepsen begins to wash her car in a seductive manner in an attempt to get the boy's attention, but she slips off the hood of the car and knocks herself out, forcing him to rescue her in embarrassing circumstances.
While this all unfolds the members of ICP constantly refer to Jepsen as "Carly Simon" or "Carly Simons," debate whether they'd have sex with her ("I want to say she's hot and I'd hit it but I think she's like 16," Shaggy says at one point), suggest the pair should smoke bath salts together, and compare her breasts to "milk duds" and "mosquito bumps."
In the video's closing sequences Jepsen final gets up the courage to perform "Call Me Maybe" in front of the boy with her garage band (who Shaggy says, "look like a Nickelodeon band"). But in a dramatic swerve, when the song ends the boy gives his phone number to the band's male guitarist, not Jepsen. It turns out he's gay.
The ICP guys are all over this finish.
"That was awesome," enthuses Shaggy. "Talk about a twist at the end. He turned out to be gay, hell ya, dog."
"I give props to Carly Simon for putting that twist at the end," adds Violent J. "That was a clever twist."
