Video: Michael Phelps and USA Swim Team Do Carpool Karaoke on Their Way to Rio

James Corden’s carpool karaoke has taken the world by storm and as is the natural course for something so popular, it was only a matter of time until bored sports stars tried their hand at it.

Enter the USA Olympic swim team, who belted out classics like Chicken Fried by the Zac Howard Band, Flo Rida’s My House and 500 Miles by the Proclaimers.

The team were of course on their way to Rio during the video, as they are taking part in the 2016 Olympic Games, with the action to kick off in the pool on Saturday.

Mega stars including Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte, Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps all take part in the karaoke video, which is already approaching 300,000 views on YouTube.

The video includes some questionable dancing, some even more questionable singing and one swimmer asking a Atlanta pedestrian “what way is it to Rio?”:

This of course isn’t the first time that the team have delved into the world of music before a major tournament.

Back in 2012, before the Olympic Games in London, the team performed a lip sync version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
