BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Baltimore swimming legend Michael Phelps is jumping out of the pool and onto the lifeguard stand.

The 23-time gold medalist joins Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the newest commercial for Johnson’s film “Baywatch.” In the ad, Phelps asks to join the lifeguard squad, and Johnson puts him through a number of test to see if he is up to par.

The 30-second spot has been viewed over 3-million times on The Rock’s Instagram page.

On the Johnson’s YouTube channel, he posted the video with the caption, “Ladies and gentlemen the most decorated OLYMPIAN of all time, Mr. 23 Gold Medals and now NEWEST member of Baywatch Movie. The GOAT Michael Phelps.”

“Baywatch” hits theaters May 25.
