Got your 'Call Me Maybe' business card yet??

Congratulations, Carly Rae Jepsen. Now you've done it.

You and your whole "Call Me Maybe" thing have officially taken over.

It's conquered every pop station from Vancouver Island to Key West, a van full of Harvard baseball players, and even a Justin Bieber Teeny-Bopper All-Star House Party.

And now -- sing it with us: "And this is cray-zee" -- business cards.

The first one caught our attention a couple of weeks ago when it was featured on BuzzFeed. Then another, presented as a very clever gag gift between friends, featuring the 26-year-old Jepsen's familiar chorus ("Hey, I just met you / And this is crazy / But here's my number / So call me maybe?") structured around standard business card contact info. Admittedly, it works perfectly with the lyrics. Much respect.

Of course now -- as with seemingly all clever ideas online -- things have gotten out of control. "Call Me Maybe" business cards are popping up everywhere and inching dangerously close to becoming the new planking. 

But they're not yet. Now they're still pretty awesome. So check out some of our favorites before the cards become as ubiquitous as the song that inspired them.
