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 Wahlberg became a worldwide sex symbol when he shot his scandalous Calvin Klein ads in 1992.

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.”
