The 2012 Summer Olympics is going strong… I have been enjoying swimming and gymnastics, but this post is about non-olympic moments.
The ever-so popular tune: “Call Me Maybe” by: Carly Rae Jepsen, has made its way to the 2012 Summer Olympics.
First: With the entire US Swim Team – which was really cute..
Second: With a parody of the Phelps v. Lochte rivalry – Awesome.
The video is produced by NOC - Youtube entertainment channel about the personalities an lives of athletes.
A few of the lyrics from the tune include: 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.
The video is filmed at an indoor swimming pool and features an average guy, singing a tune: “Call Me Lochte” to the tune of “Call Me Maybe”. Ironically, the comedic actor/singer does not look like a swimmer. However, he is funny and extremely entertaining with his low tech props. NOC – Great job on this video and funny lyrics. I am sure that Phelps will not be offended, since it was all done in fun. Lochte should feel honored by all this attention, even if he does not beat the ’08 Phelps record.
The “Call Me Lochte” video is so funny and clever with the low tech props and all, since no actual Olympics footage can be used. Nevertheless, everything all comes together, just fine.
The “Call Me Lochte” video is getting attention, when I first saw it, a day ago, the video only had 200,000 views. As of this blog post, it has 507,000, continue to grow.
Although, I am wishing Phelps well during his next events, I just Lochte. He really seems to be a perfect gentleman. His smile is so infectious, it is hard not to love a swimmer that has such a charming personality
I enjoyed the video by the US Olympic swim team that parodied “Call Me Maybe” . In this video all of the players were featured and some of the players were featured lip singing the tune, mostly girls, though. It was cute. The team that handled the Choreography deserve a round of applause for being so creative. The Camera Crew did a fabulous job filming. The Video Editing Crew did an outstanding job putting it all together.
