What do you do when you get bored with being crazy rich? Star in a movie, of course!

Chinese billionaire tycoon Jack Ma ups his entertainment value by kicking ass in the new kung fu short film Gong Shou Dao.

He stars as Master Ma, where he’s seen fighting different martial arts masters, including Donnie Yen (remember Ip Man?) as Master Yen and Jet Li as Old Servant.

According to Ma’s Wikipedia page, the film is his first foray into the acting industry and stems from his lifelong love of martial arts that has influenced both his professional life and personal life. It marks another step in his ongoing effort to revitalize the ancient practice and take it globally.

The film, produced by Jet Li himself, was released on November 11, 2017, during the Double 11 Shopping Carnival Singles’ Day, a Chinese festival that celebrates singlehood through massive offline and online shopping.

Prepare to drop your jaw as you watch the film’s official trailer, posted by Jet Li on his Facebook page. Bonus: Action star Jason Statham, the people’s champ Manny Pacquaio and celebrated Kazakhstani boxer Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin appear at the end of the video.
