US Olympic swim team sings "Call Me Maybe"

"Call Me Maybe" goes Olympic

This is my favorite Olympic moment so far. Yes, the US women's soccer team made a pretty amazing come back the other day, and the opening ceremony is happening as I write this, but of all the "Call Me Maybe" imitators, the USA Olympic swim team deserves (dare I say it) the gold medal.

It's got Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin, and even Phelps who, according to the Bleacher Report, is keeping a low profile. 

But it is interesting to think about how social media will alter this year's Olympics. Kathleen Hersey, a member of the 2012 Olympic swim team, is the brains behind the camera.
