MANILA, Philippines -- Taylor Lautner's upcoming ad campaign for local clothing line Bench will feature the "Twilight" star in a variety of action poses, as seen in a behind-the-scenes reel of his shoot released on Thursday.

In the video released by Bench on its official YouTube page, the 21-year-old American actor is seen performing numerous stunts while wearing items from the brand's collection of men's apparel.

According to the two-minute video's acccompanying description, Lautner's Bench campaign was shot by American film and music video director Anthony Mandler.

He is said to be behind the popular music videos of Rihanna's "Diamonds," Lana De Rey's "Ride," Nicki Minaj's "Starships," Beyonce's "Irreplaceable," and most recently, Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble."

Lautner, who is best known for his role as Jacob Black in the "Twilight" film series, was announced Wednesday as the latest international star to join Bench as its endorser.

As the latest endorser of Bench, Lautner joins several other "GlobalBenchSetters" such as Filipina-Mexican-American singer Jessica Sanchez, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, Hollywood actor Liam Hemsworth, Disney-grown singer Joe Jonas, American TV stars Lucy Hale and Michael Trevino, and South Korean stars Lee Min Ho, Si Won and Dong Hae.
