The Jamaican Bobsled Song

"Run the track! Run the track! Run the track! It's bobsled time!" Holy earworm, everyone. The Jamaican bobsled team might be last in Olympic competition, but they're currently vying for first in catchy internet songs. "The Bobsled Song", which you can listen to below, synchs perfectly with the turns of the Olympic track. Viewers could press play at the exact moment the Jamaican bobsled team started their descent on the track and watch as the music matched their movements. "To the left! To the left!"

Check out the 8-bit video, and just try not to move to the music.
