Ten Celebrities Who Would Make Amazing Car Company Spokespeople

Think it was a good idea for Lincoln to hire Matthew McConaughey? Jalopnik commenters picked out even better celebrity spokespeople that need to advertise for cars, now.

10.) Justin Bieber for Dartz


The most crass and tasteless of all pop stars shilling for a company that used to offer whale penis leather as an option? Sounds like a match made in heaven to me.

9.) Norah Jones for Lexus


Cars from Lexus are highly refined and relaxing, just like the music of Norah Jones. You know Come Away With Me would sound great on your fancy Mark Levinson stereo.

8.) Ryan Gosling for Mustang


The Gos did an excellent job channeling Steve McQueen driving a 5.0 Mustang in Drive. Ford should capitalize on this and add some cool factor to the 2015 Mustang.

7.) Sean Connery for Morgan


It just kind of makes sense, doesn't it?

6.) R. Lee Ermey for Jeep


For those who don't know, he was the guy who yelled at everyone in Full Metal Jacket. Who better than this former drill instructor to sell you the most patriotic of all cars?

5.) Charlize Theron for Jaguar


She's probably not quite British enough, but Jaguar is trying to sell their cars based on their class and sophistication over the Germans and she'd be perfect. Plus, she played a very convincing Brit on Arrested Development.

4.) Nick Offerman (as Ron Swanson) for Local Motors


Both the real life Nick Offerman and his Parks and Recreation charecter Ron Swanson embody the American DIY spirit, just like Local Motors. Plus, how cool would it be to see Ron Swanson driving a Rally Fighter?

3.) Riff Raff for Rolls-Royce


Everyone knows Rolls-Royces aren't bought by the "grey poupon" crowd anymore and the company needs to capitalize on this. They should hire Riff Raff as their spokesman and start offering chromed finishes from the factory.

2.) Robert Downey Jr. for Tesla


Why not have the guy who plays Tony Stark in the movies to sell cars made by the real Tony Stark? It makes perfect sense!

1.) Charlie Sheen for Vector


One of the world's most prominent cocaine enthusiasts selling the most cocaine car of all time. What could be better?
