Are You Ready to 'Go Full Speedo?'

Dacre Montgomery and Peggy Oki are all in

Wearing a Speedo is a state of mind both in and out of the water. Now, the brand's relaunch gives viewers a look at what "Go Full Speedo" really means.

A 90-second ad from Mirimar, running in the U.S., U.K., Germany, France and Australia, stars Stranger Things' Dacre Montgomery, California skateboarder and surfer Peggy Oki, and the cast of Bondi Rescue.

When Montgomery is shown the door at his corporate job, he ditches the suit and dons only his Speedo. Those he encounters do the same, until the group hits the beach. An original song, "Go Full Speedo" by The Beefs, plays throughout. Time to work on our one-arm push-ups.

Speedo | Are You Ready to Go Full Speedo?

"Speedo has been really successful in pushing performance with the world's best swimmers. But they recognized that the brand had lost some of its raw Aussie charm that made it loved and iconic in the early days," says Luke McKelvey, co-founder of Mirimar.

"Together with the Speedo team, we wanted to develop a platform that could recapture Speedo's swagger—something bold and with an attitude that only Speedo could own. Nearly every swimmer we spoke to talked about the commitment and confidence it takes to pull on a speedo, dive in head first, and push themselves in and out of the water. We love that 'Go Full Speedo' is a brand platform that represents a swimmer's spirit."

The film was directed by Scottie Cameron, an Aussie who lives and works in L.A.
