PokerStars might have gotten rid of several well-known pros since Amaya took over the company. However, one shouldn't forget that they also have signed some of the most famous people in the world, including football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr.
Ronaldo (Real Madrid) and Neymar Jr (Barcelona) have hundreds of millions of followers/fans on twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms, which make it possible for PokerStars to reach out to new markets and future poker players.
Vaughan Arnell, who work with companies such as Levis, has produced two video ads, set in Madrid and Barcelona, in which Ronaldo and Neymar Jr play in poker home games. The two videos are set to air for the first time on global television later this month, but you can watch them already now here on bankrollmob. Enjoy!
Does Ronaldo even play at pokerstars?I am sure Neymar had a few issues with poker when he was younger though that could just be media spin.Not a great advert in my opinion but it seems the young and dumb do follow celebs like sheep.
Lol they keep coming back and they will surely get the Brazilian market as Ronaldo and Neymar are popular their though one is not native there but close lol, anyway two great footballer but not sure if they are good poker player but they would not care as money is made just sitting at the tables and all, wish i had that kind of of money and could just sit and train and make money, anyway good luck guys have fun at the tables hope you luckier than me!
well honestly it's way better to have a bunch of superstars (sports, music, porn etc.) on your roster than a bunch of poker pros. after-all stars are aiming at attracting and keeping customers who are recreational players and they are more influenced by the ronaldo's and bieber's of this world rather than duhamel's or raymer's.
