Unimpressive compared to James Corden’s clips, but heading towards two million views. From the New York Times:
Given the grueling training schedule, it can sometimes be jarring to see Olympic athletes acting like the rest of us mortals — especially the ones who spend their lives underwater. But it seems that this swim team has taken time to experience the pop culture rabbit hole that is car pool karaoke, a thoroughly enjoyable stunt perfected by James Corden, who hosts “The Late Late Show.”
In most cases, any athlete in this car would be a significant get for Mr. Cordon — Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Katie Ledecky are among the swimmers who take turns driving. The group lip syncs to Fifth Harmony and Taylor Swift, asks pedestrians for directions to Rio and stops by a drive-through to order food.
