Thus, many people were left perplexed when Jackie recently became the face of a Chinese steamed bun brand, Little Bobby Bread, from Shanghai.
It is not easy to get Jackie Chan to endorse a product unless you are a huge multinational corporation with billions of consumers.
According to Sina News, speculations have arisen that Jackie may be helping his son Jaycee, whose drug arrest has forced him to cancel all of his jobs – one of them being the spokesman for the bun company.
It was rumoured that Jackie is trying to compensate for the company’s losses by replacing the actor as the spokesperson.
However, his manager recently denied the rumours, saying that Jackie Chan has always been involved in brand endorsements, and that his involvement with this particular brand is parallel to the company’s intention of expanding its market globally.
