Bolt Becomes Superhero In New Ad

Jamaica’s retired sprint legend Usain Bolt is transformed into a superhero in his most recent commercial for longtime sponsor Virgin Media.

The advertisement shows Bolt filtering out several undesirable super hero suits before appropriately selecting a black, green and gold super outfit.

The eight-time Olympic gold medallist is dubbed ‘Super Bolt’ in the commercial.

Bolt was selected as the face of Virgin Media’s new campaign after a poll of 1,000 adults in the United Kingdom found that 4 in 10 Brits wish they were a superhero.


The world’s fastest man has filled varying roles in previous commercials prompting many to encourage him to pursue a career in acting.

But he appears focused to achieve his goal of becoming a professional footballer. Bolt is currently on training with the top tier Norwegian  football team Stromsgodset where he is expected to participate in a training match against the Norway Under-19s.
