A Sexy, Bearded Michael Phelps Showcases Intense Olympic Training In Stunning New TV Spot

Swimmer Michael Phelps holds the world record for most Olympic gold medals at a mind-blowing 18 (he also has the most overall medals — 22!), and now we’ve learned he’s set to star in an Oscar-buzzy indie art flick about training for his fourth, and final, Olympic games.

OK, maybe that last accolade is somewhat completely inaccurate, but after seeing Phelps’ just-released commercial for Under Armor, you’ll see where the confusion comes from.

In the moody spot, we see Phelps in various stages of training, from swimming with a parachute dragging him back to the often-overlooked, entirely necessary sleep component. (In case you were wondering, he dreams about swimming in a never-ending pool. Makes sense.)

As far as commercials go, it’s quite beautiful.

What do you think of his beard?
