If American men have begun eating more fish, it could be due to Danish swimsuit model Nina Agdal.

Agdal, who recently earned her second spot in the coveted Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, made her mouth-watering American splash in a commercial for fast food chain Carl’s Jr.’s new charbroiled Atlantic cod fish burger that aired during the Super Bowl.

In the ad, not only does Agdal strip down in the name of healthy eating, she also seems to be promoting the sensible use of sunscreen, given how frequently the ad highlights her spraying herself and rubbing it in diligently.

While the Carl's Jr ad has been burning up the internet since its debut, it is not the 20-year old's first time on the world stage. Agdal was named Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 'rookie of the year' for 2012. And based on her remarks in a video on Sports Illustrated's website, Agdal is likely to be seen in various stages of undress in the future.

"I love wearing swim wear and lingerie," Agdal says in a Sports Illustrated video.  "It makes me feel good about my body and myself. So I enjoy bikini photo shoots a lot more than jacket and coat shots."
