BTS' V and Jackie Chan have teamed up to be "best friends" in a surprise ad for an Indonesian investment platform.

What we're seeing: The SimInvest ad, which was posted on Friday and has since gone viral, shows K-pop superstar V, 28, and iconic Hong Kong actor Chan, 69, enjoying life's leisures. It culminates with the BTS member teaching Chan some signature K-pop moves, and in return, the martial arts star teaching V some of his famous kung fu moves.

What the company is saying: SimInvest, part of the Jakarta-based Sinarmas Sekuritas, is an app for stocks and mutual funds investment. V has been a brand ambassador since March 2023, and Sinarmas says it decided to bring along Chan to "represent a more senior audience."
