Michael Phelps reveals the song he was listening to when he made the Phelps face
The most decorated Olympian of all time let us know what he was bumping in his headphones
Everyone has that song -- the one you put on when you need to get to your special place before a big moment.
It's the jam you need to hear before you go on a big interview, give a make-or-break presentation or, you know, swim in front of millions of people at the Olympics.
Before the 200-meter butterfly semifinal a couple weeks ago, Michael Phelps appeared to mean-mug competitor Chad le Clos as he danced and shadowboxed in front of him. The result was probably the most viral moment in Olympic history.
Phelps later said that he was not, in fact, throwing shade at le Clos -- instead he said he was simply getting into his zone, focusing on the task he needed to accomplish.
That brings us to Sunday night when Phelps, while introducing Future at MTV's Video Music Awards, let all of us know what song he chose to bring him into that zone.
"There's no rapper today more inspiring than Future. His optimism is in his name," he said. "Remember in Rio when I made that face that was all over the internet? I was in my zone with Future's 'Stick Talk.'"
In case you're not familiar, here's what that little ditty sounds like (the clean version, anyway).
Go ahead, try to listen to that song without making the Phelps face -- it's impossible.
So if your aspiration is to win championship trophies and gold medals, you clearly need to start bumping some Future.
