To all tennis and/or PokeStars fans out there (in case you missed it), there's new advert with tennis pro and Team PokerStars SportStar Rafael Nadal on youtube! In the advert Rafa (lying in a bathtub) is playing heads up against 2009 pillow fight runner-up Lucia Arroyo and picks up two aces only to run into Arroyo's three of a kind queens. The advert will hit TV screens around the world over the next couple of weeks.

I guess poker is a lot more excepted these days. so getting more people who have never thought about playing poker before is a good idea. that's obviously the reason why pokerstars recruited rafa in the first place.

Funny. Simple and clever. Completely passes the message of what PS intends to be to its users. Can’t figure out where did they mined to come up with a runner up pillow fighter as Nadal’s opponent, but it just shows anyone can play against any other, and the winner is never pre announced. I hope PS have space for more users, as they will probably appear after this commercial starts to be spread out.

I figured they recruited Rafa for one simple reason,... there's a LOT of money in the tennis community...

Tennis seems to be the sport or game of the affluent... along with golf and polo...

With the odd exception,...just about every tennis pro came from more than a modest background...

Same thing with hockey,...lots of hockey types incorporated into the poker scene. At least over here in North America anyhow...

Lot's of hockey families have big money too...

I guess hockey may be somewhat of a metaphor for poker

And ya seems to be making its way into mainstream society,....just like other vice-like things,...... like lawyers and other professionals dawning their outlaw biker garb and hoppin' on their Harley-Davidsons...

Good day Smile
Rafa is one the best tennis player around and ps have done a pretty clever thing by roping him in !! it surely is added advantage on the ps side to pull out more people to ps !! i feel his brand value is very good !! and it is capable of pulling a large crowd towards it .. a win win situation to stars Smile

Good luck at the tables Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

That's killer! A pillow fighter against a pro tennis playerat HU poker. IT would be nice to actually see these ads on U.S.A. tele so they'd get it through their thick skulls! Pokwer shouldn't be illegal!

This guys in this area do a lot of brainstorming before they actually create any type of product/commercial to show the client for evaluation. They discuss it a lot. "What do they offer?", "Who's the main audience/target of this product?", "Who will we be talking to?", "How do people that use the products from this company look at it?" and "How does the company wants to be seen by its audience/public/clients?" are just some of the questions they accurately answer before even get to a start of an idea of the commercial. It must be fun to work on it, but it sure also gives lots of headackes before the final product is done.

From that advertisment i understand just cuz you can lose with AA if you're not aggresive Big Smile btw, recruting the best tenis player you can recruit a lot of people who like him Big Smile

Pretty nice advert, i already saw it on news sport last night Big Smile

It's impressive to see how much money stars invest in adverts nowadays, i mean on sport channels that i watch there is almost every hour an stars promo.
