VIDEO: 'Call Me Baby' Goes Cornish

call me dreckly

"Call Me Maybe" is getting the Cornish treatment.

A video of two Duchy women singing their own version of the Carly Rae Jepsen hit has become an internet sensation.

Nearly a hundred thousand people have watched the YouTube clip since it was uploaded a few days ago.

It mentions pasties, tractors and Trago Mills - as well as having slightly ruder parts (so the clip below comes with parental advisory!)

It was dreamt up by Jodie from Falmouth and Shaunna from Camborne.

Shaunna said: "Yesterday I was in Aldi. I was paying and this woman was like, 'Are you the woman from YouTube?' and then all the people in the queue said, 'I've seen the video!'"

Jodie agreed: "My Auntie rang me up and she was like, 'I can't believe you're a local celebrity.'"

Shaunna has been pleased with the comments the song has been attracting: "I thought a lot of people would just take the mickey out of us, but it's quite nice that people have made really nice comments."

Jodie added: "The majority of them are good. A lot of people we've seen have written stuff like 'Proud to be Cornish' and stuff like that."

You can watch the full song below... but it is a bit rude in places...
