Jason Momoa shows his affinity for Detroit in a new video for Rocket Mortgage.
The “Aquaman” actor appears in the four-minute video, posted on his Instagram account Tuesday.
“Detroit has always made me feel at home,” Momoa says in the video, which focuses on Detroit’s lack of digital connectivity and Rocket Mortgage’s goal of bringing the Internet to more city residents.
Momoa appeared in a Super Bowl 2020 commercial for Dan Gilbert’s company and the video shows him reconnecting with some of the people he worked with in the commercial.
The 41-year-old actor voices the video and claims Detroit is the least connected major city in the United States, with 30% of residents not connected to the internet.
Momoa, who claims to own property in the city, is seen strolling through Hart Plaza, Corktown, near the Ambassador Bridge, across from Michigan Central Station, on the roof of the Hockeytown Cafe and in front of Joe Louis. He is joined by Joshua Edmonds, director of digital inclusion for Rocket Mortgage.
“I really enjoyed coming back to Detroit to see my friends at @RocketMortgage to learn more about the work they are doing to bridge the digital divide,” Momoa writes in the caption attached to the video, adding that Rocket Mortgage raised $ 2.7 million. dollars to the July Rocket Mortgage Classic “to help Detroit citizens have access to the Internet and technology.”
