It’s just a couple of Aussie blokes singing about chicks but Fitzy and Wippa’s version of “Call Me Maybe” is officially an online sensation.
Overnight their video titled ‘Call Me Maybe parody – Aussie blokes version’ reached 1 million views on YouTube, which shocked the boys.
“We just want to thank Shane from Eastern Creek for coming up with the idea,” Fitzy said this morning.
Shane emailed Fitzy and Wippa, who have regularly recorded song parodies, suggesting they do a blokes version of the Carly Rae Jepsen hit so he could enjoy it a bit more.
Wippa said he couldn’t believe so many people had watched it.
“We watched the video again, and I think we were having a pretty bad day because ... it looks like a couple of tired slobs in the studio hacking their way though a few lyrics,” he said.
But with more than 8,000 likes and less than 200 dislikes, its popularity is obvious.
People have even started writing their own lyrics for the chorus in the comments section.
