Oh, what hath the Olympics wrought?
First there was the U.S. swimming team’s parody video of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” which we thought might be the only one we’d come across during the Games. But we were fools for thinking that – fools!
It only took a couple days, but there’s already a Carly Rae parody video named “Call Me Lochte” that’s popping up all over the place. The gag, produced by the folks at the NOC, re-imagines the Ryan Lochte-Michael Phelps rivalry like so:
“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.”
And so forth! Check it out in the video below:
