No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. This is in fact a photo of Mr. T, wearing a pair of butterfly wings, while posing for pictures on Fifth Avenue and 33rd Street on Monday. The bearded, gold-chained actor best known for his role on “The A-Team” was there to promote Fuze iced tea.

When asked by a fan in the crowd if he was making any movies, Mr. T said, “Who needs movies when you’re promoting Fuze? This’ll make me just as much money as a movie.”

Then, after taking a swig of his drink, he insisted, “I can feel my muscles getting bigger already.”

As for the wings, he explained they were metaphorical for his life. Caterpillars, he explained, get told, “They’ll never amount to be nothing,” but then suddenly they take off.

Mr. T also said he’ll be participating in a show on the DIY network called “I Pity the Tool,” in which he’ll be helping people fix up their homes.
