Key worked in Mumbai from 2005-2010, and has played bit parts in films such as Dostana and Dum Maaro Dum.

During the session, Key fleetingly mentioned that he had once starred in an infomercial with Kalki Koechlin, although he didn't say which one it was to spare her the embarrassment.

Well, not at first anyway...

It turns out that the ad was for a product called "Powerful Swing Massager".

It turns out that the ad was for a product called "Powerful Swing Massager".

The floodgates were opened once he named the ad, and it didn't take long for a Twitter user to find it hiding deep in an unexplored corner of YouTube.

And sure enough, there was Kalki in all her pre-Dev D glory.

The ad itself is hilarious, as most teleshopping ads are, complete with awful Hindi dubbing and jiggling body parts.

But being the pro that she is, she still managed to get through it with a smile on her face.

She was understandably embarrassed about the gig once someone linked her to it, but still shared it like the good sport that she is.

Watch Kalki's amazing moment of glory here:
