Mario Lopez Rocks Gold Paint in Underwear Ad: PHOTOS

mario lopez painted gold to promote underwear line

Mario Lopez was transformed by gold paint this week in preparation for a photo shoot to promote a new underwear line.

The 'Extra' host, 38, shared the experience on Twitter while touting, "MaLo is all about 'masculine with an edge.'"

With the Olympics set to kick off at the end of the week, we find it particularly fitting that some of ML's poses feature him holding a javelin and shot put.
