Two weeks ago, we discovered the utterly creepy Overly Attached Girlfriend image meme—unique because the girl who inspired it probably intended to become a meme. This wild-eyed young woman had created a parody Justin Bieber fan video where she pretended to be a crazed Belieber singing about how she’d never let her dream guy go. And while the meme spread all over Reddit, users kept wondering, Who is this pretty, funny, constantly-blinking girl?
Turns out her name is Laina and she’s 20 years old. On Facebook she’s listed as an “Entertainer,” so safe to say she probably is an aspiring comedian. She’s smart as hell for managing to make the Bieber video a complete parody and even fool a lot of Redditors into thinking she’s as legitimately crazy as she pretends to be. (Thanks to the Redditors from this thread who tracked her down.)
Just a few hours ago, Laina tweeted, New video’s up… Definitely not as good but oh well. Time for work. She should give herself more credit, though, because it’s another fan parody that actually plays back into the Overly Attached Girlfriend meme. That’s right, Laina is awesomely meta as she takes on Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe”:
Your eyes are golden
You can sleep well always knowing
I’m looking out for you, baby
Hey, I just saw you
With that lady
Paid for her dinner
That’s kinda shady
Remember you’re mine
You say you’re dating
I know you’re kidding
So I’ll be waiting
Am I the only one who hoped she was singing about Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus? Sure, it’s not the best “Call Me Maybe” cover/parody, but it still shows you an aspiring entertainer who’s gamely taken on the persona that Reddit branded her with and is running with it.
