Jackie Chan's 'Embraer' - Isn't It A Gulfstream?

Apologies if this the wrong forum. I couldn't help but notice Jackie Chan's supposed Embraer on the front page. The cockpit looks nothing like an Embraer and the yoke even says Gulfstream on it. Is this just an error or is there some sort of Gulfstream/Embraer partnership?

Looks like a G to me.

the FAA database is listing the given registration as a 135 though.

Yeah, there's no way that's an Embraer cockpit. As you said, the yokes even say "Gulfstream" on them.

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

This cabin shot appears to be a Gulfstream as well:

Quoting aerorobnz (Reply 4):

Well, yes... that's his Embraer. But neither cockpit nor cabin photo posted above were taken aboard his Embraer - they were taken aboard another aircraft. It appears he accidentally entered the wrong info on upload.
