GLASGOW, Scotland, July 23. TEAM USA’s extremely popular video featuring some famous swimmers lip-synching to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” has generated more than 12 million views in two years. Team Wales is hoping for the same success with a similar video released today, the eve of the start of swimming competition at the Commonwealth Games.
Set to the dance club hit “King Of My Castle” featuring vocals by Gaelle Addison, the video features several members of the Welsh team at training camp having fun in and out of the water. Notable names such as Jazz Carlin and Jemma Lowe make appearances, as do several swimmers who perform the “Worm” and “Macarena” dance moves. Former Florida State University standout Robert Holderness is another top name in the video, lip synching while sitting on the pool deck.
Thomas Haffield, another big Welsh name who appears in the video, sent out a Tweet that Lowe was the mastermind behind the video.
