MUSIC VIDEO: Shut up and Dance with the University of Colorado swim team

The University of Colorado takes on Walk the Moon’s “Shut up and Dance” in this music video, filmed over the team’s training trip to Tuscon, Arizona.

Women’s teams always seem to get into the music video spirit, but SwimSwam has to give the Colorado men some major props for their dedication to the vid. These guys went all in – the dance moves are spectacular, the underwater twerking spirited, and the wardrobe choices, if a little unsettling, are wholly entertaining.

(Seriously, Colorado breaks the unofficial SwimSwam record for “Most male swimmers in female swim attire in a music video.” Congrats, guys.)

You can check out the great video above, courtesy of Casey Wilson on YouTube, and a big thanks to Alaina Gossett for sending it our way. For all future swim teams submitting music videos to SwimSwam: looks like the bar has just been raised. Keep it weird, Colorado. You’ve earned our respect.

The University of Colorado does not have any varsity swim team and that may explain why their
club team dominated ECC at Georgia Tech last year.
