If you’re “so, so single,” love Sabrina Carpenter, or can’t escape her viral single “Espresso,” then this fresh off-the-press parody courtesy of Games We Play is exactly what your day needs! Following the release of his debut album, Life’s Going Great, his recent headline tour and his support run with Fall Out Boy earlier this year, Games We Play mastermind Emmyn Calleiro has gone viral on TikTok after creating a parody track sung over Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso.”

The pop-punk newcomer opens the video, asking Sabrina Carpenter to “please watch this video” before starting the track at a low volume. As Calleiro starts singing, the track goes, “I know you got a boyfriend, but this is my brother, and he is so, so single,” before ripping a pre-cut T-shirt off of his brother.

The parody continues through laughter: “He’s six foot five, and you’re really short! You are so, so little.”

“He’s never kissed a girl, and he’s eighteen, he is so, so legal. This is my brother. I know you got a boyfriend, but I don’t give a fuck,” he sings before stumbling over his next lines. “He’s working late, and he goes to the gym. He just got tattoos, and he’s never had a girlfriend.” 

Before repeating the assumed chorus, he sings, “A honeybee? You could be his girlfriend if you’re interested. Leave it in the comments.”


SABRINA i put alot of work into this please date my brother. His dms are open he has never had a girlfriend ever

As of this story’s publication, the video has more than 1.5 million views and counting. Additionally, it has more than 265K likes, nearly 3,000 comments, and more than 9,000 saves.

While Sabrina Carpenter is so, so not single as she’s currently linked to Saltburn’s Barry Keoghan, we are hoping that she’ll respond to Games We Play’s video in an equally as funny way. Besides, we know she has a sense of humor, given her always-changing “Nonsense” outros that have been making the rounds on TikTok.
