Rafa Nadal is not just a 14-time Grand Slam-winning tennis player; he's also an accomplished golfer. And when he's not on the court, he's on the links. So it's not all that crazy to think Nadal would be playing golf in his native Spain. However, it's insane to think Nadal could be hit be a stray golf ball and lose his memory.
That was the premise behind a new Poker Stars ad, where Nadal pranked unsuspecting golfers under the guise that their errant shot struck him and caused him to lose his memory.
Nadal's not the most believable actor, but in the situation, it's hard not to take him at face value. The kicker is when a radio station calls Nadal's mobile phone, asking to speak with him live on the air for a scheduled interview.
It's a solid ad and a good tie-in for the poker site, showing off Nadal's bluffing skills.
