Usain Bolt Shows Off His Moves in Virgin Media's Music Video

Could Dance Music Be His Next Career?

Everyone's asking what's next for Usain Bolt after winning the triple triple -- playing for Manchester United? Javelin throwing? -- but maybe dance music is where it's at.

Virgin Media, which just before the Olympics launched an ad that paid tribute to Bolt's world record with a series of 9.58 second sequences, has now released a music video, a debut single by U.K. duo the Arch Birds, in which Bolt shows off his funky moves. It was shot on location by agency BBH and director Seb Edwards at Academy at the same time as the ad, and, with the title "Be the Fastest," presumably Virgin waited until after Bolt had confirmed his status as the world's fastest man to release it.

Bolt's no stranger to music-driven performances. Just recently, he also threw down some vocals for a Digicell campaign.
