Carly Rae Jepsen has received the ultimate honour - a tribute video from the Cookie Monster.

The Sesame Street star has made a cover version of the Canadian pop star's hit song Call Me, Maybe.

The video shows the Cookie Monster hungrily watching cookies being handed out in the office as he sings: "Me just met you. Dis is crazy. But you got cookies! Share it, maybe?" Then the staff in the office all join in and dance along.

It comes after the Cookie Monster tweeted in June: "Me just met you. Dis is crazy. But me love cookies! Gimme, maybe?"

The video has already had over five million hits on YouTube and has inspired more Call Me, Maybe spoofs.

Carly recently tweeted a link to a Star Wars mash-up of her hit, with scenes edited from all six films, so characters from Yoda to Han Solo appear to sing the words along to the tune.
