We know you’re completely sick of hearing Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and listening to everybody and their moms lip sync to the music video, but the truth of the matter is that we’ve discovered a reason why you should know the song.

Guys need to stop with the whole lip dubbing — we’re talking about you, Harvard baseball team — and instead use the love-at-first-sight lyrics to pick up chicks. Don’t believe this can be done? Check out the strategy in action below.

We probably do need to offer some caveats, however. The guy experimenting with this new technique runs a YouTube series called DiGiTS in which he tries to use different methods to get girls’ numbers. So, as you can see, he has become very confident when approaching the lovelies.

He also has very hipster-looking hair, and we’re not sure we can recommend trying to score digits off women sunbathing in bikinis without it.
