This Six-Month-Old Carly Rae Jepsen Song Is All Over Vine Like A Rash

In September last year, Canadian pop star Carly Rae ‘Call Me Maybe’ Jepsen released her third studio album – the critically lauded but commercially disappointing ‘Emotion’. The timeless bubblegum pop of its lead single ‘I Really Like You’ helped it reach Number Three in the UK chart, while the next single, saxophone-laced banger ‘Run Away With Me’, flopped all the way down to Number 58. So why have the past two months seen ‘Run Away With Me’ spread like a rash across Vine, the Twitter for videos?

It could just be that the song’s having an ultra-slow burn – maybe people are only now hearing it for the first time – but whatever the reason, it’s the best musical meme of the year so far – ‘Run Away With Meme’, if you will. Don’t believe us? Take a look at some of the best ones.

This August Vine was way ahead of the curve
