Warren Buffett is obviously “known” as a financial wizard, now he’ll become one—literally.
The New York Times reports the “Oracle of Omaha” is starring in “Secret Millionaires Club,” an animated Web series “that follows the adventures of a group of kids as they tackle financial emergencies, like low-performing lemonade stands and troubled bicycle shops. The club, which meets in a secret bunker outfitted with hidden laptops, is led by a trusty financial wizard. Who? Well, Mr. Buffett, of course.”
“I saw an opportunity to have a good time and maybe get a fair number of kids in this country started with the right financial habits,” Buffett told New York Times DealBook on Tuesday. “Learning at the starting line is so important.”
As the paper reports, Buffett is not the only well-known mogul to lend his voice to the project”
“The rapper Jay-Z, or ‘Jay’ as Mr. Buffett calls him, also makes a cameo in one of the clips. ‘It was not a tough sell, believe me,’ Mr. Buffett said, citing the musician’s interest in financial education and his chops as a wealthy entrepreneur.’”
