Most of us will remember Michael Phelps’ historic run in the 2016 Rio Olympics that certified him as the winningest Olympian of all time. Most of us will also remember him this summer for the #PhelpsFace.

That same face that took over social media is coming back to the screen next week, says global tech company Intel. The famed Maryland swimmer will be the co-star of a new ad campaign building on Jim Parsons’ cheeky, humorous TV spots advertising the brand’s computers.

The commercials show Phelps and Parsons, known best for his role on the sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” struggling with a slow-moving machine. As Phelps’ apparent frustration grows, his game face comes out. Parsons then advises him to try out a faster, more advanced Intel-powered computer.

The company quipped in a release that “Phelps is a natural fit as both are known for their speed and world-class performance.”

Watch the Phelps-Parsons duo at work below:
