We would call most of the people in this video. There’s no ‘maybe’ about it.
If making viral videos was an Olympic sport — which it probably will be someday because we live in a crazy, awful world — the U.S. swim team would definitely bring home the gold with its own take on “Call Me Maybe.” Sure, these Carly Rae Jepsen-inspired videos are a dime a dozen at this point, but this new offering has something the others don’t: Speedos!
Given the flirty (and infectious) nature of this tune, I feel the need to also point out that the 2012 London Olympics are setting a record for the number of condoms officially being handed out to competitors. According to a report from the UK’s Daily Mail, more than 150,000 condoms are being distributed to athletes in the Olympic Village. (In case you’re not good at math, that’s SO MUCH SEX.)
Watch the Olympians‘ performance below — my favorite is the dude doing the underwater robot, pictured above — and prepare to feel patriotic:
