Let’s hope Team GB starts a trend of better viral videos with Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now

Adidas partnered with some of Great Britain's most successful and popular athletes for one of the absolute best song parodies you'll see.  Not because of the athletes or the acting mind you, although Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton, and even Becks (whose closest brush with Olympic action was riding in a boat with Bob Costas) make appearances.  No, it's merely the choice of Queen's Don't Stop Me Now.  It's not Call Me Maybe, it's not any of this other newfangled crap, but actual by God great music.  People of sports – when it comes to song parodies, there's Freddie Mercury and then there's everyone else.  Although somehow the verse about being a sex machine ready to reload must have been left behind in the Olympic Village.
