Can someone explain the "Call me maybe" theme/meme? I know it is a song, but what's the relevance here?

Edit: I looked at the archive and found the original post where it is ... erm... explained?

The name of the "Call Me Maybe" artist is Carly Rae Jepsen.

The name of the test framework is Jepsen.
