Adorable: Lip-syncing Team USA swimmers ask, ‘Call Me Maybe’?


Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me, Maybe” is a lip sync favorite on YouTube. But how many of those videos feature Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte blowing a kiss at the camera, hmm?

The video also includes dancing from Team USA swimmers Missy Franklin, Brendan Hansen and of course, former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Natalie Coughlin.

My underwater dancing is much better than on land. Trust me #CallMeMaybe

Many of the Olympic swimmers used their Twitter accounts to help the video go viral.

And the Twitterverse verdict is in: a lot of awesomeness, a little dorkiness and a bit of sexy all rolled into one.
