    You know him from American Horror Story. He's a dreamboat and your #MCM.

    But did you know that long before he graced us with his studly self on AHS, he was gloriously adorable in a few early 2000s commercials?

    Let's take a trip back in time. And try not to faint from cuteness.

    He started as an intense gamer in 2001, promoting one of Playstation 2's first online games, ATV Offroad Fury: Clowns.

    Complete with crisp, clever lines.

    Look at that determination. Is he preparing for all the hearts he's going to break in a few years?

    Or the clowns he's actually going to have to face?

    This is a work of art. Made of pure gold.
