Making Mark proud!
Before joining forces with Calvin Klein to reinvigorate the brand’s iconic underwear campaign, Justin Bieber knew he had big, er, briefs to fill.
“Mark ‘Marky Mark’ Wahlberg shot his campaign in 1992 and we’re still talking about it today, so I hope my ads make an impact the way his have,” Bieber, who hasn’t spoken to the Oscar-nominated actor, told Us. “I hope his reaction is a positive one.”
Still, Bieber, 20, knows that the comparisons between the two sexy images — taken more than 20 years apart — will be hard to escape. “I really hope people will see that I put my own spin on things,” he said.
Despite the enormous amount of pressure, the “Believe” singer didn’t sweat his new role. I wasn’t nervous about doing the campaign,” he said. “It was the most fun I have ever had on a shoot.”
