It's been done by Cookie Monster, the USA swim team and even the PricewaterhouseCoopers HR team but this parody of "Call Me Maybe", without doubt,  takes the cake.

In the near 4-minute video, YouTube star Steve Kardynal catches people using online chat service Chatroulette completely off-guard by showing up on videocam dressed only in a bikini and prancing along to Carly Rae Jepsen's hit song.

Chatroulette, an online chat website that randomly pairs strangers from all over the world, connects to users' webcam services. Some log on to meet new friends but others, particularly men, log on expecting to have a bit of naughty "fun".

The video, uploaded on 10 August, has racked up an amazing 11 million views in just four days. Kardynal is no stranger to being known of wacky videos like this. To date, he has gathered 585,000 subscribers and 113 million total video views. He is also known for his Songs in Real Life videos and other lip-dub videos.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers.
