It’s understandable that people aren’t in a huge hurry to forgive Ryan Lochte for what he did at the Rio Olympics. His vandalism, drunken behavior, and repeated lying reflected poorly on the whole country.

But, according to this PowerBar commercial, the man is ready for a clean start, hoping to forget his trangressions that made global news:

Given the love of outrage from internet people, I’m sure this won’t go over well, but I find it to be really funny. It plays with the somber tone like a prescription drug ad, and there’s something so patently ridiculous about the vapid Lochte and his bizarre white hair that it just sort of all comes together nicely.

But don’t get me wrong. The guy’s stil a jerk, and I’m still mad at him.
