Paul Rudd is New Voice of Hyundai

If while watching the new television commercial for the 2015 Hyundai Genesis you think you recognize the announcer’s voice, you’re probably right. It’s well-known funny man Paul Rudd! Hyundai announced yesterday that the actor had signed on to take over for Jeff Bridges who’d been the company’s narrative talent for the past seven years. Steve Shannon, vice president of Marketing, Hyundai Motor America, said, “We were looking for a voice that could be recognizable and relatable to a new generation of car buyers. Rudd can be serious, humorous, informative and entertaining all at the same time. It’s his modern sensibility that we knew would be a perfect match for today’s customers.” As for the work Bridges did for the company, Shannon says, “Hyundai’s relationship with Jeff Bridges is one of the longest in the industry –narrating ads for industry leading vehicles and programs such as Hyundai Assurance,” said Shannon. “While we say goodbye to an epic era with Jeff, we are extremely excited to have Paul come on board.”
