Carly Rae Jepsen Responds to Insane Clown Posse

In case you missed it, the Insane Clown Posse watched and reviewed the video for Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" video for us last week. The two clown rappers hadn't seen it yet, and their responses were...well, you should really just watch it, if only so you're caught up with the rest of the internet. One person who still hasn't seen it yet, though, is Carly Rae herself.

"I haven't watched it yet, but I think one of my friends posted it on Facebook," she told Spin. "Is it good?"

The Spin writer correctly informed her that it was, and then mentioned Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J's reaction to the "Call Me Maybe" video's surprise ending. 

"[The ending] was [MC-comedian] Tim [DeLaGhetto's] idea," Jepsen told Spin, laughing. "Every week a new remake or spoof [of the ending] pops up. I get a total kick out of it."

She also had some good things to say about Justin Bieber, who she credited with starting the "Call Me Maybe" cover explosion. "He really sparked the whole 'Call Me Maybe' video-spree," she says. "It was a game-changer for me."

I think it's safe to say she'll add the Insane Clown Posse to her "game-changer" list once she watches their take on her video. And, just in case Carly is reading, the video is embedded below.
