It’s a party with the U.S.A. swim team! 

While training for the summer Olympics in Atlanta before heading to Rio, Team U.S.A.’s swimmers created their own version of James Corden‘s hit YouTube series “Carpool Karaoke.” 

The swimmers took their turns behind the wheel singing smash hits and throwbacks as they patrolled the streets asking for directions to Rio, their final destination. 

Dressed in workout gear, swimsuits and even lobster costumes, all of the Olympic Swim team sang along to popular artists like Taylor SwiftJustin BieberOne Direction and many familiar jams, like the FriendsPokemon and That 70’s Show theme songs. 

And Michael Phelps passionately performed solo to country sensation Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried” with an American flag in the backseat – fitting, as he is Team U.S.A.’s flag bearer for the opening ceremony. 

The team also made a point to avoid singing “Call Me Maybe,” the song they were jamming to in their last Olympic appearance. 

The gang also got a little off-track, ordering fast food with extra ketchup (for Ryan Lochte) and watching locals dance to their loud music.  

The 2016 summer Olympics opening ceremony is Friday.
