Live-action trailers have become a Call of Duty series tradition, and they’re not afraid to embrace fun and the ham factor. Past Call of Duty advertisements featured a number of unexpected celebrity cameos, from Robert Downey Jr. to Jonah Hill, having fun and delivering playful humor in a Call of Duty setting. This year’s trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, though, is probably one of the goofiest yet.

Activision definitely decided to embrace the inherent goofiness of Call of Duty in space, with this year’s trailer featuring Michael Phelps as a space marine. That’s right, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is in this trailer. Fed up with Earth and some not-so subtle references to the 2016 presidential election, Michael Phelps decides “Screw it, let’s go to space,” and becomes a space marine action hero.

Watch the trailer here.

You can see Michael Phelps and others enjoying the goofiness of Infinite Warfare‘s space setting: from zero-G gunfighting, piloting space ships, and playing with futuristic weapons. Actor Danny McBride also makes a silly cameo appearance, when he steals Phelps’s kills and yells, “This is my pool, sea monkey!”

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 4. The special edition copy of the game comes with a remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which won’t be available separately for now.
