MacGyver is the new Mercedes-Benz spokesman
Tuesday - August 14, 2012
Mercedes-Benz has found their newest spokesperson in Richard Dean Anderson, who is reprising his classic character Angus MacGyver for a new series of unique car promotions.
The promotional site states that the company is producing “three brand-new episodes of MacGyver” to mark the international launch of the new Citan, reportedly out in Europe in October.
Episodes will be posted to the Web site (though we expect something more like webisodes or extended commercial spots, rather than anything approaching a full-length, 44-minute television series).
MacGyver ran on ABC from 1985 to 1992, and was followed by a pair of TV movies in 1994. Anderson, of course, went on to portray Jack O’Neill on Stargate SG-1.
Visit the official site to watch a preview of the promotional series.
In other RDA news, the actor has announced that he will make his very first appearance at the Dragon*Con event in Atlanta, Georgia at the end of this month (August 31 to September 2). Autograph and photo op tickets can be purchased exclusively from Legends Canada.
