Mad Men star Jon Hamm may not be up for an Oscar this coming weekend, but viewers of ABC’s broadcast of the Academy Awards will still get to hear his voice.

That’s because Hamm has been signed as the new commercial voice of Mercedes-Benz USA. During the awards, the 38-year-old actor will be pitching Americans on the car company’s sustainability initiatives and new green luxury models. The commercial presents a new S400 Hybrid parked under a tree.

Mr. Hamm describes how it is “powered by a compact lithium ion battery,” then goes on to talk about other eco-friendly Mercedes-Benzes like the BlueTEC clean diesels and “a hydrogen electric car that emits only water.”

“What drives us is the desire to create not only the best cars in the world but for it,” Mr. Hamm says in the bit, adding, “A cleaner, safer future is what drives us.”

Now if only we could afford it. The S400 starts at just under $90,000.
