He was the most buzzed-about individual athlete in our most recent HootSuite Twitter Week in Review Chart, The Hollywood Reporter says that he's already fielding multiple reality-TV offers and today he appears in a new video on Funny Or Die titled "Peeing in Pools with Ryan Lochte," capitalizing on the notoriety he gained when he confessed to NBC Olympics special correspondent Ryan Seacrest that , yes, he ... well, you know.
"The way I see it," Lochte tells Funny Or Die's off-camera interviewer, "the pool is the biggest and most expensive toilet. And it's all mine. That's the only time I allow myself to pee. Yes, I can only pee in the pool."
