Ubiquitous pop culture icons, unite. It's time for yet another mash-up of football and that pesky Carly Rae Jepsen song.

If you're a footie fan, you already know Neymar. The 20-year-old Brazilian is an up-and-coming super-duper-star, and pretty much every big club in Europe has already been linked with him for months.

Meanwhile, if you're a member of the human race, you already know Carly Rae Jepsen as well. At the very least, you know her gratingly, cloyingly, aggravatingly catchy song "Call Me Maybe."

Football and "Call Me Maybe" have already collided in video form. Crystal Palace and their cheerleaders did a version, and that one (for obvious reasons) was much appreciated.

But today is the be-all, end-all collision. It's the mash-up of all mash-ups.

Neymar, meet Carly. Carly, meet Neymar. Now, let's get this party going.

Neymar's club, Santos, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. To help mark the big milestone, Santos came up with the novel idea copied everyone in the history of sports and put out a parody video of that dang song.

You know, the gratingly, cloyingly, aggravatingly catchy one.

The video appears above. Enjoy it, or hate it—whatever. It's the Set Piece Video of the Day for Wednesday.

Of course, you know this means we'll be seeing the Barcelona (or Real Madrid) version sometime in 2013. Heaven help us.
