Usain Bolt Dresses as a Grandpa and Videochats With Babes in Virgin Media Ad

Friday January 3rd, 2014


In this new Virgin Media commercial running in the UK, Usain Bolt does his best impression of LeBron James in The LeBrons and assumes the identity of all the members of his family. It's as good a time as any to know once and for all what the world's foremost sprinter would look like in drag or as a swagged out grandfather.

And if this spot didn't fully satiate your desire to see Bolt in costume, he also filmed a 2012 ad impersonating Virgin founder and former Rebel Billionaire honcho Richard Branson. Spoiler alert: they look nothing alike.
