Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth, aka Diamond Dave, is a lot of things: a songwriter, an actor, “Just a Gigolo”, an author, and even a former radio personality. That’s not all. He’s also apparently a shirtless, tattooed, milk-drinking Japanese assassin. No, really.

As The A.V. Club reports, Roth has been living in Tokyo, where he’s “found time to both date a girl half his age and make a short film in which he plays an assassin.” Whether he’s pursuing a lifelong dream or been watching way too much John Woo, it’s hard to tell. Little reasoning for this affair, though it does make for one hell of an afternoon treat.
