US swim team does their own "Call Me Maybe" video, women soccer parties in the USA and its a Dance Off as we bring you the biggest spiral hits of the week with this Olympics edition. Hey there, I'm Laura Bradshaw and joining me is Carly [ ] . Hey guys! We're taking a look as Team USA gets goofy in this Pop Sugar rush. and all the other boys try to take me but here's my number so call me maybe This is a big video people are talking about today and for good reason. Of course, you know, tons of people have taken on Call Me Maybe online which has become a huge hit and now the US swim team, men and women, have giving it their best shot. Yeah, I appreciate all the shirtlessness coming from the male swimmers, and there's some underwater moves that are pretty amazing. Ryan Lochte, however, who sort of emerged as the heartthrob of the male swimmers team, he gives this really sexy smooch at the end for the ladies, which I love. Yeah, and as you said, he's become this huge heartthrob and I know I'm going to be watching him this year and it's not just because I like swimming. Exactly. Well, they aren't the only team who took on a fun hit. We also have the women's soccer team trying out Miley Cyrus' Party In The USA. So, check that out. Going to put my hands up, they're playing my song, the butterfly, fly away. Nodding my head like yeah, moving my hips like yeah. Got my hands up, they're playing my song, I know I'm gonna be okay. Yeah, it's a party in the USA. Well, this song was popular a couple of years ago, of course, and I'm glad to see they brought back the jam. Yeah, and you know they put a lot of thought into this, there's several scenes and a lot of choreography going on and, earlier in the video, they even show off their cardigans with match Miley's lyrics. Yeah, They are definitely going to bring the party to the Olympics this year. Yeah and fun fact, actually, they aren't in London right now. They're actually in Scotland and competing. Their competition started on Wednesday so they're not going to be at the Opening Ceremony tonight in London. and they're gonna be in Scotland still but, you know, of course we'll be thinking of them. Another video though, comes to us from NBC, this next one it shows athletes from across the world of teams sort of competing in a little dance off. So, check out their moves. Well I love seeing a lot of those moves, I love the worm, it's a personal favorite, but you've got to tell me who is the guy who owns the butt doing the booty shake at the end. Okay, it's Taylor Phinney who described himself as a professional dancer first and a road cyclist second. So make note of that. He [xx] got all of his Dancing skills from late nights out, and then he actually loves to back it up on unsuspecting ladies, and I've got to say, he does a really mean shopping cart. Well it caught my attention so now I think I might actually watch cycling. Yeah his personality makes me wanna watch that. Yeah, well we have another video for you, this is actually our final one team USA trying out some of the slang while they're over in Britain. So, doesn't go so well but take a look. And, I'll stick on the Hansel and Gretel, and make take a mass cup of Rosie Lee. I'll stick on the Hudson Gretel, and make us a nice cup of Rosie Lee. I'll stick on the I hate to say it because I don't wanna be a downer but they should probably just stick to athletics. I get that they wanna be good guests respectful of the culture, but some of them sound like they're saying Hansel and Gretel, the storybook characters, which I don't think they intend to say that but at the end of the day, I love that they laughed. It made me laugh. Yeah, and this is actually part of a campaign called Thank You Britain where US athletes are giving back to the UK community. Well, thank you guys so much for tuning in. This concludes our essential viral videos of the week, our Olympic edition. We hope you enjoy this summer's games, but for now I'm Lauren Bradshaw. And I'm Karli Bulnes. Have a great weekend and we'll see you next time on PopSugar Rush.
