Every star has to start somewhere, right?

Mark Ruffalo took to his Tumblr page yesterday to share an awesome “Throwback Thursday” video of a Clearasil commercial he starred in back in 1989 — and it’s totally awesome!

“If you watched my ‘Variety’ interview with Jessica Chastain, then you may recall I did a Clearasil commercial in my early 20s. In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, here it is. Enjoy!” the 47-year-old actor wrote on the website.

The video features Mark in his early twenties sprinting through an alley in an attempt to outrun his acne. And later in the clip, the baby-faced star appears acne free thanks to the Clearasil product!
