Pain & Gain: Mark Walhberg Jumps Around to Dubstep in New TV Spot

The new TV spot for Pain & Gain was released yesterday, and it features several new and interesting angles from which to view Mark Wahlberg's crotch.

"My name is Daniel Lugo, and I believe in the American Dream," the trailer begins, the words said matter-of-factly by Mark Wahlberg, as he gives a thumbs-up to a heavy woman on an elliptical machine and smiles as he waxes the hair off a beefy guy's back.

If you've already seen the trailer (itself a piece of art so great that it inspired this equally epic email chain), you'll recognize several scenes spliced into this commercial for the film based on a New Times story. But have you seen Wahlberg jumping from directly above you in slow-motion, fist-pumping while holding a briefcase as the Bacardi building looks on in the background? How about falling from directly above you in slow motion with a different briefcase in the other hand, this time with austere stone pillars in the background?

This movie truly is the gift that keeps on giving. Check out the trailer after the jump.
