Olympic Carpool Karaoke

Before he has the honor of carrying the U.S. flag in tonight's (Aug. 5) opening ceremonies of the 2016 Rio Olympics, legendary swimmer Michael Phelps crammed into a car with dozens of other members of Team U.S.A. to bust out some serious carpool karaoke. Joined by fellow badass lappers Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte, Elizabeth Beisel, Katie Ledecky, Nathan Adrian and a dozen others, Phelps and the crew took on songs by everyone from Justin Bieber to Flo Rida, the themes from Friends and That 70s Show, One Direction, Zac Brown Band, Fifth Harmony and, of course, Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA."

There were flags, the Pokémon theme song, and for some reason, lobster costumes involved. 

And, of course, they did a call back to that time they all jammed on Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" before the 2012 Olympics.
