First there was the U.S. swim team's video parody of the ubiquitous song of the summer, Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe. Now an enterprising videographer has devised a hilarious parody about the rivalry between swimmers Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte. Words in the spoof include:

“Hey, I’m not Michael, don’t eat at Subway/But this is my year, so call me Lochte/It’s hard to swim right, by Phelps baby/But this is my year, so call me Lochte.”
