I am going to take this moment to acknowledge the fact that “Call Me Maybe” has been thoroughly parodied into the ground. HOWEVER, the following video from Wizard World Chicago, captures something very special.
I’m not talking about the brief cameos from The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal, or even nerd-deity Bruce Campbell, I’m referring to the con attendees and cosplayers that were featured in the video.
Look at the unabashed joy on their faces. This video perfectly captures the comic convention spirit. These people are dressed as various comic book characters, surrounded by their friends and peers, and singing what is arguably the most successful/annoying pop song of the year and they could not be happier.
