Comedy-pop duo Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues are aiming to grow the perfect moustache for Movember in their ‘Call Me Maybe’ parody.

The Movember Song, a parody of Carly Rae Jepsen's mega-hit, is to help further the real purpose of Movember: educating men and raising awareness about prostate and testicular cancer, helping them to take control of their health while raising funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

"We wanted to show our support for the Movember cause, which we have supported privately for quite a few years now," said Derick Watts member, Gareth Allison.

"Not everyone seems to realise that there is a real meaning behind this month of magnificent ‘snors’, and we just wanted to help contribute this year in the best way we know how - comedy!"

The video also stars Dr. Michael Mol ( Top Billing, The Dr Mol Show), Siv Ngesi ( Copposites, Race Card) and Angel Blythe Campey ( Kings & Queens of Comedy, 20ceansviberadio).

The band hopes for fans to “help us punch cancer in the face”.
