July 27 (UPI) -- As the Olympics begin in London, 'Call Me Maybe' is still topping U.S. charts.

And in case you hadn't gotten enough of the sometimes awkward, sometimes hilarious (and often both) videos of the likes of Cookie Monster, Colin Powell, Jimmy Fallon or even Barack Obama in their own versions of Carly Rae Jepsen's monster summer hit, the Olympic U.S. swimming team has made one of their own.

Three members of the women's team, Alyssa Anderson, Kathleen Hersey and Caitlin Leverenz, spearheaded the effort to get their fellow swimmers in on the fun.

Team USA's entry winks at the video that started them all, featuring Justin Bieber and co.. There are, of course, plenty of shots of the swimmers poolside, showing off their Olympian physiques in their swim suits, dancing down airplane aisles, and generally goofing around.

While participants' enthusiasm varies throughout the video, there are a couple must-see moments.

Yes, Michael Phelps does make an appearance. But it's Ryan Lochte's moment, right at 1:00, that steals the show.

Just don't ask Will Ferrell to join in on your next "Call Me Maybe" cover video. He is apparently really sick of it.
