(RNN) – Carly Rae Jepsen, we owe you an apology. At first, we loved the countless quirky spoofs of your song – maybe not the song itself because it's still quite horrible – but then we dropped you like a sack of potatoes.

Don't be mad. It's just that the poppy, bubble gummy rhythm of Call Me Maybe would not stop going through our heads. Seriously, it just would not stop.

But now, thanks to the ineptitude of the men temporarily refereeing NFL games and the still popular practice of dubbing over the ear-grinding melody of your song, there is at long last one spoof worthy of relinquishing whatever disdain held toward your, umm … is talent the right word?

Carly, even if you can't forgive us, you can take comfort in the fact that the judgment of these replacement refs is at least one thing that is more uncertain than your future in the music industry.

KLINGON STYLE

There's no way someone can make a music video funnier than a badly dressed man dancing around questionably attractive women for the entertainment of people who don't know they're being made fun of. Well, that's not exactly true; we tried a similar experiment with Nancy Grace, and it crashed in flames.

The folks that took one of the most popular internet sensations and spun it around a Star Trek-style drama nailed it right on the head.

We're not exactly sure what the lyrics are because, obviously, we don't speak an extraterrestrial tongue. But no matter, this would be funny in any language.

Warning: Do not eat, drink, or have a bladder full of fluid while you watch this video.

BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE HAS ONE

Your guess is as good as ours as to what the deal is with this lady, but apparently she wants an iPhone 5 worse than anyone, even though she has no clue what a smartphone is.

"I heard that it's only $200 instead of $800, so I'm very enthused. I might buy two or three phones … because I have my credit card."

Folks, no single sentence summed up the American spirit so well since "ask not what your country can do for you…"

We should feel bad for making fun of this lady, and you should feel bad for laughing. Let's all shoot her a text with our apologies.

BEN NETANYAHU MAPS IT OUT

As soon as Israel's prime minister pulled out a red Sharpie during his speech at the UN, elementary teachers and conspiracy theorists everywhere stood up and cheered.

This was one of the most classic moments that has ever happened on the international stage, right there between the moon landing and Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction.

We get it, Mr. Netanyahu. Iran is full of crazy people who hate the Western culture, and they're bent on wreaking havoc at any cost. With your brilliant diagramming skills, it is now more evident than ever.

In your spare time, would you mind drawing up a photo or two that will help us solve world hunger and colonize Mars?

SHE'S BAAAACK!

Our favorite stuck-like-glue girlfriend has re-emerged in a video with the guy who (gasp!) dares to break up with her.

We get that smothering is not cool, but it's amazing that a guy with a lisp this bad has the nerve to break up with anyone, even a psychopath.

The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger; so hopefully, they will make another video to show us how things turned out. The safe guess is not very well.
