Olympic legend Michael Phelps may have retired from the pool, but he’s back in the spotlight again thanks to a Radio Shack ad that shows the swimming champion chilling out by a pool before transforming in to a dude with dreads and plenty of gold around his neck.

As an added bonus, everyone around the pool gets a taste of Phelps’ gold medals after the simple push of a button.

Steve Aoki, Alexis & Fido and Lil Jon also are featured in the spot.

If you want to know what the Phelps ad consists of, Billboard does a great job of letting us know what’s going down:

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.”
