Four years ago, the US Olympic swim team sang "Call Me Maybe." (Previously) For the 2016 Olympics, they hit the road again for carpool karaoke.

One of the top YouTube comments is great- "OMG THATS ME! 1:09 I can't believe he was serious we thought it was some random guy. That's so cool´╗┐"

I remember this from four years ago. Was hoping they'd make it through a whole song but this was fun.

Ok, my favorites were the woman who swapped out of the drive's seat because didn't "feel comfortable driving four other Olympians around"... and the two who were in lobster(?) costumes.

Nice to see Michael Phelps joining in this time.

I think they stuffed James Corden in the trunk.

... "Call Me Maybe" is four years old? Where am I?

Swim swam has the who's who.

And also the who's swimming what in Rio!

Also, this is what carpool to practice and meets often actually looks like. Swimmers are a little nuts. It's the chlorine.

Charming, but they couldn't think of a song sung by an American?

Miley Cyrus is American.
Fifth Harmony are Americans.
Cheap Trick are Americans.
Taylor Swift is American.

Are you being sarcastic ?

I assume raider is referring to Call Me Maybe (jingoistic as that still is).

Oh! Thanks for clarifying! :)

Pretty much the last thing I expected to see this morning was Katie Ledecky singing along to a Cheap Trick cover of a Big Star song. A+!

Great! Thanks for posting. (Though the country song--such cloying patriotism. And I like patriotism, usually when it's quiet.)

I must change my comment. That was fantastic.
