Jaguar Land Rover Hires Cartoon as Brand Ambassador

Jaguar Land Rover is thinking outside the box for its newest global ambassador.

The British automaker has announced Noodle, Japanese guitarist and founding member of virtual British band Gorillaz, as its newest brand ambassador. Noodle will help drive a new skills gap campaign aimed at inspiring young people to become future engineers and innovators, as well as joining the Jaguar Racing crew.

According to Jaguar Land Rover, it plans on using its entry into Formula E to promote its “thought leadership position as a business that is shaping the future to solve the technology innovation and skills gap challenges.”

“The young minds of today are the engineers of tomorrow,” said Noodle. “We are in the driving seat and our imaginations are the fuel. It’s time to lead the charge and build a better world!”
