If you weren’t already rooting for the Jamaican bobsled team in the 2014 Winter Olympics, you probably will be after hearing the team’s new theme song.
“Jamaica We Have a Bobsled Team,” is so 1993, so Jamaica decided to reinvent the squad’s soundtrack after a 12-year absence from the games. The country’s main tourism agency is touting “The Bobsled Song” for the 2014 Sochi games. The song is intended to sync up with the two-man run of Jamaican riders Marvin Dixon and Winston Watts — and there’s even a video.
The video — in all its eight-bit animation glory — navigates the entirety of the 1,500 meter course Dixon and Watts will race in real life.
Check it out below.
The two-man event for bobsled is on Sunday, and the medal round is on Monday.
They make quite a pair.
