Challenger bank Lunar has unveiled their newest investor into their company, Hollywood superstar, Will Ferrell.
The comedy-movie legend was announced as an investor of the Danish bank through a video on the firm’s LinkedIn page, in true Ferrell fashion.
The 30 second video has Ferrell repeating the word Lunar in various comedic tones and deliveries whilst also sporting a long blonde wig. The video appears to pay homage to Swedish bank Postbaken’s commercial back in the 1990’s.
Ferrell commented on the partnership: “I am excited to take part in Lunar’s mission to give consumers and businesses more power from their money.
“By joining Lunar I am expanding my engagement in the Nordic countries, which is close to my heart. Nordic people are smart, sexy and are tired of having their money messed with.
“That’s where Lunar comes into play as a digital disrupter in the financial industry.”
Ferrell has prior investment history, having invested into Major League Soccer side Los Angeles F.C and is a part-owner. Ferrell also has prior Nordic connections as his wife is Swedish.
This partnership with Ferrell is Lunar’s way of expanding from their Denmark base. Lunar gained €210 million from funding last year, as well as acquiring Swedish lending company Lendify and payments platform Paylike.
On their post announcing Ferrell as an investor, Lunar said: “We’re so thrilled, it’s been tough to keep it to ourselves. We welcome Will Ferrell – actor, comedian, producer and writer – as an investor in Lunar.”
