Best yet? Swim team makes 'Call Me Maybe' lipdub


It’s the song you can’t get out of your head this summer. That’s a good thing for the Team USA Swimming — because “Call Me Maybe” gets them pumped.

The team produced one of the best (and most elaborate) video parodies yet of the Carly Rae Jepsen hit. The lipdub, released Thursday, has racked up more than 250,000 views on YouTube as of this post. 

Why'd they pick the tune? It's a favorite among several of the stars: Missy Franklin told it’s her go-to karaoke song, and teammates Rachel Bootsma and Elizabeth Beisel said it’s on it's on constant rotation on their iPods as their pump-up song before jumping in the pool.  

The video, spearheaded by swimmers Alyssa Anderson, Kathleen Hersey and Caitlin Leverenz, follows members dancing in airplane aisles, down water slides and on the bottom of pools. Michael Phelps gives a wink, and Ryan Lochte blows a kiss. 

Watch it below! Do you think it’s a gold medal-winning video?
