U.S. Swimmers Take Carpool Karaoke to Olympic Heights

by at .

The Opening Ceremony for the 2016 Summer Olympics will air live from Brazil on Friday night.

But we don't need to see thousands of world class athletes parading around with their flags to get us in the mood for these epic Games.

A handful of U.S swimmers have gone ahead and done the inspiring deed for us already... carpool karaoke style!

In the following piece of amazing footage, Olympians Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, Nathan Adrian, Elizabeth Beisel, Caeleb Dressel and others have teamed up for the ultimate take on James Corden's classic segment.

The begins with Dressel and Beisel asking everyone to buckle up. Safety first, people.

Safety, always.

From there, the group breaks into some Taylor Swift, briefly Shaking It Off, before Phelps, in another vehicle, asks if anyone is going to play some music during their drive.

Next up, we have a a car packed full of female Olympians... who plead NOT to select “Call Me Maybe” as their karaoke song.

It's been done before, that's all. Many times. No offense to Carly Rae Jepsen.

The talented women therefore opt for Fifth Harmony’s “BO$$.” Solid selection.

Around the five-minute mark, Nathan Adrian bursts out in song-and-dance while performing the Pokémon theme song in a way we never thought was possible.

It almost makes the whole Pokemon GO craze worthwhile.

There are plenty of Lochte dance moves to enjoy, a few more Pokemon references and just an epic video to enjoy overall.

Sit back and take it all in now:
