The USA Olympic Swimming Team Released Their Own Carpool Karaoke

From the swimming pool to a carpool.

The USA Swimming Team is ready to go for the gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics. But before the games get underway in Rio de Janeiro, the swimmers decided to have a little fun while paying homage to the very popular Carpool Karaoke series made famous by The Late Late Show With James Corden.

On Thursday, the team published a nearly eight-minute YouTube video with the best spoof of the series out there. There were so many swimmers in the video that they had to split up between multiple cars.

In the video, the team is singing a unique mash-up of tunes, including "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift, "Bo$$" by Fifth Harmony, "Chicken Fried" by the Zac Brown Band, "What Do You Mean" by Justin Bieber, "My Boo" by Ghost Town DJs, "My House" by Flo Rida, "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers and "Party In The U.S.A." by Miley Cyrus.

Additionally, the swimmers belted out theme songs from television shows such as Friends and Pokémon. They also mimicked the theme song from That '70s Show during the car ride.


The athletes also conducted plenty of shenanigans during the carpool, including wearing lobster costumes and stopping at a fast-food drive-thru.

This isn't the first time the USA Swimming Team did a video like this. Before the 2012 games, the swimmers did a parody video of "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen.

Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin, and the rest of the team recorded the hilarious video while training in Atlanta en route to the Olympic Games. Phelps, who will most likely be competing in his final Olympics, was selected to be the Team USA flag bearer during the opening ceremonies.
