Michael Phelps returned to the pool … for a RadioShack/Motorola/Sol Republic commercial.
The most decorated Olympian of all time’s retirement portfolio grew with a video published on YouTube on Monday.
In the above ad, Phelps is sitting on a pool deck and is briefly transformed into a long-haired, jewelry-wearing rapper. Phelps then turns the tables on the pool party and transforms others into medalists. A torch even makes an appearance.
Also in the ad are Steve Aoki, Alexis & Fido and Lil Jon. Let Billboard describe it from a music perspective:
The ad begins with Alexis & Fido playing “Alocate” on the DECK. Then Lil Jon switches to his still-unreleased track, titled “Turn Down For What,” which automatically turns the crowd into Lil Jon lookalikes. Phelps does his part with Peter Roberts’ “Second to None” and then the spot ends with Aoki’s “Boneless.”
This is why Michael Phelps is in Europe
