“Daisy’s Lullaby” and 5 More Awesome GREAT GATSBY Music Videos

Some days, the internet makes me think so many impossible thoughts that I just can’t stand it any more. And some days, the internet gives me something so happy-making that I’m just positive my eyes and heart will burst, and I want to squeeze the internet with ALL THE SQUEEZES. This is one of those days.

In honor of our Riot Read, I give you these amazing videos inspired by our dear F. Scott.

These dudes and their awesomely weird screechy-growly parody prove that no cultural icon is safe from the pop culture tidal wave known as Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
