This could be the shortest turnaround between rumor and reality: Yesterday, someone posted a link on Reddit to a video allegedly starring cute-as-a-button Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen and some guy’s junk. (Obligatory comment: “Looks like someone called her.” And then later: “No wonder no one ever called her, she’s awful at blow jobs.”) If you follow the links, you’ll end up at the NSFW video; sure enough, it’s a pretty girl with dark hair and bangs, but it’s blurry enough that it’s unclear if it’s actually Carly.
Imagine our shock! The creepiness we felt at pulling up this video in the middle of the workday! (Even though it’s technically research. Yep, that’s what we’re gonna tell the IT guys the next time they have to sweep our hard drives.) Despite being two years younger than 26-year-old Carly Rae, I still envision her as my impressionable younger cousin, and the thought of her going to town on some guy while Katy Perry‘s “E.T.” plays in the background just gave me the heebie-jeebies. I wanted to cover her up and throw her back in the recording studio to pen another annoyingly poppy song.
However, it seems as we needn’t have worried. Within hours of the video’s leak, Carly tweeted a dismissive (and maybe even annoyed?) denial:
One Redditor pointed out a key reason that we can point to videos like this not being the real deal: With HD camera phones, twentysomethings’ sex videos shouldn’t come out so blurry. This faux tape comes less than a month after naked photos of a Carly lookalike hit the web. At the time, “internet model” Destiny Benedict took credit for the racy pics; so far, no one has stepped up to claim this video, perhaps because of the lackluster response.
So until then, we’ll be wondering in the back of our minds if this is all part of the conspiracy to make Carly look innocent and squeaky-clean…
