Because Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ just keeps on inspiring covers and parodies, it appears the 2012 Summer Olympic Games has also caught on with the trend.
In light of Michael Phelps’ major upset yesterday when teammate Ryan Lochte defeated him in the 400m Individual Medley race, the people at NOC have brought us a hilarious parody that pokes fun of the two swimmers’ rivalry.
The song definitely suggests Lochte’s darker side in defeating his 14-time Olympic champion teammate. Despite being friends in real life, the song sung in the perspective of Lochte features lyrics like:
“I’m in a personal hell/ I kind of hate Michael Phelps/I wish he’d drown in a well/ That dude is in my way
When I first saw that guy swim/ He got nothing but wins/I could’ve sworn he had fins/ But now he’s in my way.”
But enough about Lochte’s feelings. I want to hear a song featuring Phelps’ reply after losing last night.
