'Call Me Maybe' Parody: James Franco, Katy Perry Are the Latest to Spoof Carly Rae Jepsen's Hit [VIDEOS]

With James Franco's recent parodies of Rihanna and Selena Gomez songs, it was only a matter of time before the actor took on Carly Rae Jepsen's hit single, "Call Me Maybe."
In a video posted on Franco's Who Say account, the actor can be seen singing (and driving) with a female companion, as Jepsen's song plays in the background. Franco's falsetto voice can be heard over the track, complete with hilarious facial expressions and hand gestures to "Call me, maybe."
Meanwhile, Katy Perry has also released her rendition of "Call Me Maybe," possibly filmed during the singer's recent trip to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which was held this past weekend.
Like Franco, Perry holds nothing back in the video. Poolside, the "Teenage Dream" singer and a group of friends act out the song's lyrics, donning shades, drinks and an inflatable monkey. The video, which was posted on Monday, has since received more than 74,000 views on YouTube.
On Apr. 6, Franco posted a video of himself belting out "Love You Like A Love Song" by his "Spring Breakers" co-star Selena Gomez. Franco, who plays Alien the drug arms dealer, also stars in the film alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Heather Morris ("Glee").
Three days after "Love Song," Franco posted yet another parody, this time of Rihanna's "You Da One." "Worst lip syncher ever," he wrote in the post, along with the video.
Since releasing "Call Me Maybe," Carly Rae Jepsen has become quite the sensation, thanks to some Twitter help from Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. The music video for the single has since received more than 27 million views on YouTube.
