Jackie Chan: Embraer’s New Brand Ambassador
I don’t know any Jackie Chan jokes, but I’m sure they are out there, much like the popular Chuck Norris jokes. For instance, Chuck Norris doesn’t hunt, he waits. Chuck Norris’ calendar goes straight from March 31 to April 2 because nobody makes a fool out of Chuck Norris.
Anyway, I digress. Today we’re talking about Jackie Chan.
Did you know all of these facts about Jackie Chan?
- He is an operatically trained vocalist.
- He won the Favorite Buttkicker award for Karate Kid.
- He speaks three languages fluently.
- He founded the Dragon’s Heart Foundation, which helps children and the elderly in remote China.
- He is the proud owner of an Embraer Legacy 650.
Jackie Chan, native of Hong Kong, China, brought his brand new executive jet to the air show in Singapore this week. Due to his talents as an actor, martial artist, stuntman, choreographer and all-around buttkicker, Jackie Chan enjoys immense popularity in China. This makes him the perfect person to represent the Embraer brand in this quickly expanding market.
China has one of the fastest growing markets for business aviation and private jets. According to Bombardier, the number of jets in China is expected to increase from 150 in 2010 to 2,470 in 2030. Embraer is in negotiations with Aviation Industry Corp. of China to set up a production line in China.
Jackie Chan’s jet is cool. It has a dragon motif painted on it. He says it will help him get around to promotional functions for his charities. I think it helps him look like a badass.
