Basti Artadi and Tirso Ripoll Spoof "Call Me Maybe"

Did anybody order shenanigans? Here you go then: singer Basti Artadi and guitarist Tirso Ripoll of rock bands Wolfgang and Razorback, respectively, with a spoof of “Call Me Maybe.”

(Those with delicate sensibilities may want to skip to the 1:45 mark. There are a lot of F-bombs at the start of the clip.)



Awesome. That’s some Parokya ni Edgar-grade shit right there. Who knew those two rockers had it in them?

And it looks like they're doing a video podcast. I must investigate this further.


It turns out Artadi and Ripoll have made some offbeat song choices in the past. They’ve previously covered Katy Perry's "Hot n Cold" and Rihanna's "Distubia."

This is my best stab at the lyrics. I missed nearly an entire line, and I'm sure I got some words wrong.
Met one Saturday night
Things went from good to alright
I never once left her side
Felt like a king that day

Stuck my tongue in her mouth
It all came rushing out
Why the f**k didn't she shout
Or push me away

It started blowing
Cheese dip, vodka orange
Man, them gates were open
I had no way of going

I just met you, and this is crazy
But you made blow-by, all over me
I'm from Alabang, and we're in Q.C.
And you made blow-by, all over me

In awkward silence we fell
Look like a zombie from hell
There's no describing the smell
I had it on my face

Water came from her eyes
I thought she started to cry
She let a second one fly
And I was in its way

It started flowing
Chili chips or Coke and
Bacon, ham and sisig
Dami mong kinain

I just met you, and this is crazy
You made blow-by, all over me
I'm from Alabang, and we're in Q.C.
And you made blow-by, all over me

I just met you, and this is crazy
'Cause you made blow-by, all over me
I smell like shit, and I'm so stinky
'Cause you made blow-by, all over me

That's when you came into life
And I smell so bad, I feel so bad, I smell oh so bad
Bad that night would be thus far
I feel so bad, smell so bad, oh so bad

I'm from Alabang, and we're in Q.C.
And you made blow-by, all over me (Shit!)
I just met you, and this is crazy
'Cause you made blow-by, all over me

All over me (Shit!)

Thanks to an anonymous commenter, the lyrics are complete. Whether they're accurate is another matter altogether, heh.
