The 2012 USA Olympic swim team has become yet another group of athletes to parody Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit single “Call Me Maybe,” joining the likes of Harvard baseball (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEWVwgDnuzE) and SMU women’s crew (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7ppxF4O130).

The video, garnering over 300,000 views in a day, features USA swimming standouts like Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin all beaming as they lip-synch and nod their heads to the catchy tune. Just goes to show athletes can have a little fun in between workouts and preparations for competition.

The 2012 London Olympics kick off tonight at 6:30 p.m. CT on NBC with the Games’ Opening Ceremony, while the first night of swimming finals begins Saturday, June 28 and includes the men’s and women’s 400 IM events.
