Call Me Shavey: Abercrombie & Fitch Takes Credit for Carly Rae Jepsen's Viral Smash

Clothing Chain Claims to Have 'Discovered' Pop Star's Now-Ubiquitous Single

By Published on .

As part of our continuing crisis coverage of the utterly unstoppable Carly Rae Jepsen "Call Me Maybe" phenomenon -- see "Best Media of the Month: Dumenco's Top Seven" and "What Jimmy Fallon and NPR Have in Common" and this video of DiGennaro Communications staffers hard at work -- we present the following video of hairless Abercrombie & Fitch models dancing around to the song. A&F, purveyor of overpriced clothing and homoerotica-for-the-masses, posted the video on its YouTube channel last night with this note:

In October of 2011, Abercrombie & Fitch discovered Carly Rae's 'Call Me Maybe' and launched the song on its official soundtrack. To celebrate the song's Summer popularity, A&F asked its hottest guys from its Flagship stores all around the world to have fun with the song -- film it on their phones and to do whatever came naturally... This is what the guys sent back!
