“Call Me Maybe” was released on Sept. 20, 2011, and then something "so absolutely shocking" happened, as Jepsen's manager Jonathan Simkin told Mashable: Social powerhouse Justin Bieber tweeted about it in December and followed that with an appearance in a viral lip-dub video in January. "It's hard to beat that," Simkin said.

The covers and parodies rushed in from Harvard athletes, celebrities, half-naked models, Sesame Street's Cookie Monster, musicians, digital versions of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney and more.

By June, "Call Me Maybe" finally hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, remaining on top for nine weeks.
