Harvard Baseball Goes Viral With ‘Call Me Maybe’ Video
BOSTON (CBS) – The Harvard Crimson’s baseball season may be over, but their music video careers are just getting started.
On their way back from an April 29 double-header against Dartmouth, members of the team had a little fun while listening to Carly Rae Jespen’s hit “Call Me Maybe.”
Senior pitcher Connor Husle turned on his camera phone when the song came on the radio, and turned it to his teammates. Crimson players Jeff Reynolds, Steven Dill, Andre Ferreira, Marcus Way, Kyle Larrow, Jon Smart and Joey Novak then put on a very simple — but very well-choreographed — dance routine, all while keeping a straight face (for the most part). No emotions, just pure grooves.
Maybe even more impressive is the fact that Jack Colton, a sophomore outfielder from Milton, stayed asleep throughout the whole performance.
“Yes, he was actually sleeping the whole time,” Hussle wrote on the YouTube thread.
The video, which went viral over the weekend, had nearly 900,000 views by Wednesday afternoon.
The Crimson finished their season 8-12 in the Ivy League and 12-30 overall.
