Patterico's Pontifications


Army “Call Me Maybe” Cover

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:30 pm

Here is an example of one of the many cover lip-syncs of this song, done by the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders:

Horrible lip-synching, yet strangely compelling. And now we have possibly an even more compelling version, from soldiers in Afghanistan:

Can’t beat the night-vision goggles, synchronized push-ups . . . and were they really firing mortar shells during the making of this video? Hilarious.

  1. It’s hard to decide which I truly like better, so I won’t choose…I’ll enjoy both!!! Semper Fi!

  2. There is no shame in turning down the volume all the way.

  3. “Horrible lip-synching”

    Yeah, I was watching that cheeleader video, and all I could think about was the poor lip-synching.

  8. I dunno, Pat… if you think that the troops’ video is anywhere near as “compelling” as the cheerleaders’ video… I mean… I guess what I’m saying is that if that’s the way you feel about it, maybe Joe Biden would like to know.

  9. The cheerleaders … kind of like a Playboy thing; get all excited and then …. The redhead in blue, if I was half my age, but I suspect she’s of an age I’d think of her as a granddaughter.

    The troops, now. That’s morale.

  11. The first video…

    total rule 5, Patrick. I thought you were above this sort of thing.

    I’m not criticizing, I’m just… noticing. heh.

  12. I like the guys in the jeep who somehow can’t sync their arms together…. 😀

    What if Obama does so too?

  14. AH!!!

    I watched it a couple times, and THEN I realized!!

    You’re right — It’s not lip synced!!

    It’s perfectly breast synced!!

    REALLY! Check it yourself!!

    Watch the breasts, they NEVER get out of sync with the song, NOT FOR AN INSTANT!!

  15. But please tell me the second video is a fake. That those are not American soldiers in Afghanistan.

  16. NK:

    That was one of the FOBs I supported when I was deployed to Kunar in 09-10. Yes, it is definitely American Soldiers. Where they are pretty much just walking around is a risk, so at lest they made the most of it.

    And, yes, Patterico, those were live out-bound mortars. Pretty much an every day thing in that neck of the woods. Though I’m sure they were dropping a registration mission.

  17. Thank you, Mr. Parry. I will confine my comments to the video, on YouTube.

  18. I did not know that a ball crawl could be used that way. But I will remember it.

    Beldar (8e9db8)

  19. Call me crazy but these videos make me love America even more.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  20. I cannot believe you don’t have this one Patterico. This is the best of the “Call Me Maybe” hits.

    And very appropriate for the times.

  21. Okay,

    just watched the soldiers in Afghanistan one. That’s pretty awesome.

  22. God bless America!

    Oh, AND the troops; God bless them, too.

  23. Loved the soldiers video. Makes me proud to be from the good ole USA. I may watch the girls later on, when I have more free time.

  24. Hey wasn’t that blond in the first pic- the same women (well-built blond in the blue bikini) that Prince Harry was salivating over during his infamous Strip Poker party in Vegas?

  25. There was singing?

  26. “There was singing?”

    AD – I didn’t notice it either until I watched it the sixth or seventh time.

  27. Then I turned down the volume.

    Perhaps, then, you’d prefer my version of Rule 5 Blogging.

    Not to worry: totally safe for work!

  29. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative. I appreciate
    you spending some time and energy to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of
    time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
