In the video, Stewart plays a old-timey ticket scalper and Williams plays his sidekick. The two scam various Olympics attendees with tickets to the Games.

When they stumble upon Lochte, who shows them his American flag diamond encrusted grill along with the pass that he need to participate in his races, Stewart and Williams hit the jackpot and try to sell his precious items to Pegg, who plays himself.

Earlier in the week Lochte tweeted from the set of the video.
