We all know that Michael Phelps is a superb athlete but did you know he could be funny too?  His ad for Rosetta Stone, the language tutoring company, shows his sense of comedic timing.

He may not win any Academy Awards for acting, but the ad shows his funny side as he demonstrates his obsession for speed - speed in the pool, speed getting ready for the pool, speed autographing, speed learning languages - even timing his dog for speed peeing!
