The half naked oiled up dude in this music video is totally Jason Statham

Jason Statham has been many things - a martial artist, high diver and male model, and that's just in his real-life, leaving out the dozens of ex-Special Forces roles he's played.

At 47, he's become one of the biggest names in action cinema and with knees in much better shape than most of his genre rivals he's going to be kicking ass for many years to come.

But he wasn't always so successful and with a career which didn't really kick off until 1998's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, he did plenty of odd jobs to keep himself in cash. Including dousing himself in oil and the tiniest of hot pants and dancing like a madman for this 90s track Comin' on Strong by The Shamen.

That's totally him.

Head to 1.47 for the best stuff - that's nine greased up synchronised Stathams in leopard pants and matching boots just flinging himself around the place. And the 25 year old seems as bewildered as anyone about exactly what he's up to and what he's done with his life.

22 years on, he's dating a supermodel and gets to drive fast cars and walk away from exlosions in slow motion for a living. The lesson here, don't give up on your dreams. Also, the internet remembers everything. Forever.

This isn't the only time he's been greased up either..

You can see Jason Statham next in Mechanic Resurrection - due out in 2016.
