    I guess you could call Phelps a "method swimmer," as he stretches his cap into butterfly wings.

    Michael Phelps stays level-headed by pulling down hard on his swim-cap as he eyes the 12th gold medal.

    Phelps will do anything if it means he can flex his 5x gold-medal muscles in the process!

    With the finish line on his mind, Phelps molds his cap into a parachute to keep from flying through the pool wall.

    I know I don't need this cap and these goggles, but I have to try to be humble and pretend that they help me.

    Despite his endorsement, the Michael Phelps look has not been a big hit with back-to-school shoppers.

    Michael Phelps opts for the "no reservoir tip" swim cap for speed.

    Michael tries an unsuccessful attempt at impersonating Dumb Donald from the Fat Albert gang. Perhaps he should stick to swimming.

    Phelps mocks David Bowie, demonstrating the ability to swim like dolphins can swim, and that he can be a hero, just for one day, as well as sporting different colored eyes.
