Watch Michael Phelps & NJ Olympic swimmers do Rio-bound carpool karaoke
Our two New Jersey Olympic swimmers, Michael Phelps and their teammates have shared some Carpool Karaoke of their own. Or, as their hashtag points out, it's more "Swim Pool" Karaoke. You know, since they all swim really, really well.
The U.S. Swim team posted the pretty long video, with nine carloads of Olympians to include! So, where's our Jersey duo?
With Phelps at the wheel, Monmouth County's own Connor Jaeger was in the backseat of Car 2. Their crew opted for some Zac Brown Band and "Chickenfried."
Burlington County native Kelsi Worrell is in Car 4, with Katie Ledecky starting as the driver. They did a fun reenactment of the opening from "That 70's Show," which means the swimmers even swapped seats while rocking out.
There's plenty of pop songs being covered — even the "Pokémon" theme song — with a couple of swimmers dressed as lobsters. In all, they had some fun in Atlanta before heading off to Rio.
Both of NJ's Olympic swimmers are in action on Saturday. Kelsi Worrell is in the Women's 100m butterfly and Connor Jaeger has the Men's 400m freestyle. Jaeger also will compete in the Men's 1500m Freestyle (his heat is on Friday, August 12).
Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt’s first reporting gig involved her Fisher Price tape recorder. As a wife and momma of two kiddies, she firmly believes that life’s too short to drink bad coffee. A fan of the beach, Dave Grohl and karma, in no particular order.
