Rob Lowe is bringing evil back.
The cast of “Austin Powers” reunited for a Super Bowl ad ahead of Sunday’s big game, teaming up with General Motors to plug electric cars in a bid to highlight the climate crisis.
In the clip, Dr. Evil, played by Mike Myers, insisted: “I will help save the world first… then take over the world,” pretending like he was the first to come up with the idea.
A caption on the clip read: “Climate change just got a new enemy and he’s one EVil son of a Belgian. Dr. EV-il is going electric to stop climate change from ruining Earth before he can.”
The full ad reveal comes after Lowe shared a teaser in which he reprises his character from 1999’s “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me”.
“He’s the not-so-head honcho. The second banana. The medium cheese. Numero dos,” the ad teased. “But he’s always number 1 at being Number 2.”
Lowe’s Young Number 2 then laughed his maniacal laugh.
“Evil is back for good,” it added.
Lowe was also in the first “Austin Powers” movie, in an uncredited role of decapitated henchman’s friend.
Others to star in “The Spy Who Shagged Me” included Myers, Heather Graham, Robert Wagner as Number 2, Seth Green, and Mindy Sterling. The late Verne Troyer also starred as favourite Mini-Me.
After the “Austin Powers” cast’s ad was unveiled, Myers then spoke about a possible fourth “Austin Powers” flick during a recent visit to “Today”.
“I would love to do one. Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he insisted.
“We’ll see. I can neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence of such a program, should it exist or not exist.”
“I had so much fun. I loved doing that character,” Myers added of filming the Super Bowl ad. “I love Rob Lowe, Seth Green, Mindy Sterling. It’s like we hadn’t seen each other in five minutes, and it was a wonderful time.”
