Lopez, who hosts MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew host, shared his heavy metal transformation with his Twitter followers, explaining the connection between his scantily clad campaign and the underwear.

“‘MaLo’ is all about ‘masculine with an edge,” he tweeted. “Packaging is the statue of David, one of the most iconic bodies in the world. MaLo captures some of that beauty & masculinity but with a MaLo twist.”

Before getting painted, Lopez’s fiancée Courtney Mazza joined him on the set to model men’s briefs and tanks alongside the star.
