A group of Olympic divers from the U.K. team are going viral for a video in which they portray superheroes from the "Avengers" films.

Athlete Jack Laugher shared the video, which has been liked over 226,000 times and retweeted more than 80,000 times. It's also been viewed nearly 7 million times since being posted on Oct. 6.

In the 26-second clip, Laugher and his fellow divers jump out of the water in swimming trunks, posing as members of the superhero team while the "Avengers" theme music plays. In a separate tweet, Laugher broke down which diver was playing which hero.

Speaking with the BBC about the viral video, Laugher shared a tidbit about making the clip.

"The choreography took about 15 minutes getting everyone in order then only two tries to get it right!" he said.
