Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber have been dubbed the "Fab Five," so it only makes sense that they just got honored in the form of a famous song by another fab five.
The teen stars of the U.S. women's gymnastics team are apparently all pretty big Justin Bieber fans, so perhaps they've also fallen for his British counterpartsÂ—Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan of One Direction. It's kind of hard to avoid their cheerful tune "What Makes You Beautiful," that's for sure.
If they are fans of the boy band, then the girls should certainly enjoy the NOC parody video "What Makes You Flexible." You might remember NOC from being the masterminds behind the viral "Call Me Lochte" music video, a tribute to Ryan Phelps and Ryan Lochte's rivalry set to the tune of "Call Me Maybe."
The "What Makes You Flexible" video parody chorus goes like this:
"Jordyn you light up the gym like nobody else/Aly when you chalk your hands I get overwhelmed/Gabby when you take the beam it ain't hard to tell/You don't kno-o-ow/You don't know you're flexible."
It's kind of sad that super-vaulter McKayla Maroney didn't make the chorus.
Gabby Douglas and her teammates certainly have a lot to celebrate, so hopefully they get to rock out to the video that celebrates their team gold medal before they get back to businessÂ—the competition for the individual gymnastic events starts this weekend.
Some YouTube commenters think that it's creepy that an older bald dude is singing about the teens on the U.S. women's gymnastics team, but according to USA Today, this is just what Jesse Adelman was hired to doÂ—he quickly writes songs about sports stars; records music videos set to popular tunes; and hopes that they go viral.
Still, it would be nice to see Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan pay tribute to the team instead. The One Direction guys might be cheering for their home country, but they also have lots of American fans who have been rooting for the Fab Five.
You can check out NOC's "What Makes You Beautiful" parody below. Apparently Adelman doesn't realize that female gymnasts don't do the pommel horseÂ—oops!
