Disney-Pixar teamed up with the U.S. Olympic Swim Team to create a "Just Keep Swimming" PSA (watch it in the top graphic). It provides a great introduction to the team members, too. As an apparent thank-you, Disney-Pixar held a special advance private screening of "Finding Nemo 3D" for the swim team in Knoxville, Tenn., on Thursday, July 12. Olympians and their families were one of the first audiences to watch the film in digital 3D before heading for London to compete in the games.
Are those glasses shaped like swim goggles with a little snorkel on the side? How cool is that?
