Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen (Chatroulette Version)

I noticed a few cool things about this video.
1. The vast majority of people responded with a smile, danced or sang back. This is such a huge difference then when I was in my early 20’s (back in early ’90s). It is cool to see attitudes shifting and people being able to respond warmly.
2. The women almost exclusively danced back, not unexpected, but cool to see.
3. There were only a few freaked out faces.
4. Just a revisiting of number 1. I was surprised at how many younger males, especially very masculine looking males responded positively, sung back at Steve, danced with him or just gave him a big smile.
It gives me hope we are moving away as a culture from bigotry and hatred of people that don’t look normal. A few outliers are still trying to keep us homophobic, but that will hopefully die off with them 🙂
Oh, and the song is pretty catchy. I hadn’t heard it before (yes I am old and out of touch).
