Undeniably one of the most likely songs to get stuck in your head, Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy song “Call Me Maybe” has become quite the summertime hit and a popular theme song for the Olympics. A few days ago, the U.S. Olympic swim team released a music video and cover of the hit song. Now, the NOC, a YouTube Entertainment Channel, has created a parody inspired by the supposed rivalry of Olympic swimmers and teammates Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps. According to the parody, Phelps’ record breaking accomplishments in the past Olympics justify the rival status, but this is Lochte’s year. On July 28, Lochte won gold in the 400-meter individual medley, while Phelps lagged behind finishing in fourth.
The parody has instantly gained viral YouTube status and features some pretty humorous lyrics: “Hey, I’m not Michael, don’t eat at Subway/ But this is my year, so call me Lochte/ It’s hard to swim right, by Phelps baby/ But this is my year, so call me Lochte.”
If you haven’t seen the “Call me Lochte” video yet, definitely watch it here…
In case you’re still looking for some Olympic related Carly Rae Jepsen mania, watch the U.S. Swim Team get pumped up for London with their lip-sync rendition of “Call Me Maybe.”
The 2012 Olympics may have just begun, but Lochte and Phelps have been two of the most buzzed about athletes at the summer games. It’s no wonder they now have a YouTube hit and parody created about them.
