Justin Guarini Dr. Pepper - Justin Guarini stars in a new Dr. Pepper commercial, but it might cause you to look twice. From the start, it’s just your normal soda ad that features a few employees in the work break room looking for a sweet pick-me-up, according to Fox News.

But if you watch closely, one special lady’s carbonated desire happened to summon Justin. All of a sudden, a little man slides into the room on his knees, dressed in a red wig and shiny metallic pants and hands her a Diet Dr Pepper. If you take a closer look, take away the garb and eyeliner, you’ll realize it’s Guarini.

It’s the American Idol alum, but it also says his name down on the bottom of the screen. Justin starts showing off his killer vocals by hitting some ultra-high notes about the sweetness of Diet Dr. Pepper. Justin explains that he does not work with the employees in that break room and then slides back out on his knees, according to Popcrush.

Justin Guarini, best known known as the runner-up on American Idol’s debut season in 2002 when Kelly Clarkson took the first title, has since been working on independent film projects and hosting shows. Justin is currently starring in the Broadway musical Paint Your Wagon (and soda commercials).

Justin also recently made headlines after Clarkson admitted that the two dated during their feature film, From Justin to Kelly.

“We didn’t date during Idol, which everybody thought we were dating. We did date during…I feel like we weren’t dating during the movie. But I feel like maybe we did. We did date a little bit … I think any two people who are thrown together that much [would eventually date]. ‘Timeless,’ you put that song on From Justin to Kelly-you can’t fight it!”

While Guarini starred in the Dr. Pepper commercial, he also recently appeared in the musical Paint Your Wagon as Julio, playing at the New York City Center, and is set to play Bobby in the play Company, slated to run May 29 through June 21, notes HotFix.

Justin Guarini is now a father to two sons, William Neko, 3, and Asher, 2, and a stepdad to Lola with wife Reina Capodici.
