Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen and her management are crazy in "love" with the countless videos of sports teams performing her viral hit "Call Me Maybe" in buses, vans, hotel rooms, fields and even in public.

The catchy song this month has oddly but hilariously inspired athletes from coast to coast to capture footage of themselves lip-syncing and dancing to the tune for all the world to see on YouTube.
"We love it -- (it's) so flattering to see these people go to the trouble," Jonathan Simkin of 604 Records, Jepsen's label, told Mashable. "We are shocked at how this song has inspired people to do all sorts of things."
The hot single, which landed at number one on iTunes in the U.S. last week (see tweets below), began popping up more and more in videos featuring athletes after a Harvard University's pitcher uploaded a clip of his teammates synchronously rocking out to "Call Me Maybe."
While Harvad's rendition wasn't the first "Call Me Maybe" lip-dub from a sports team, it was the first to go viral, garnering 8.6 million YouTube views as of Monday after only having 190,000 views on May 8.
Jepsen's management says it's hard to say whether there's a correlation in the amount of covers to increased sales figures for "Call Me Maybe."
"The song has sold really well since first release in Canada, and that was before all the viral insanity," Simkin says. "It is fair to say that the viral phenomenon has not hurt, but I think the song is simply one of those songs that really affects people. The viral videos are more the result of that, than a catalyst for sales."
Jepsen's original video has 69 million views while her second video (featuring a celebrity cameos from Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale) has 39 million. Watch those videos below these tweets.
