Ronaldo and Neymar Jr star in new PokerStars campaign

If you're already one of the combined 157 million people who follow Ronaldo and Neymar Jr. on Facebook you might already be familiar with what we're about to tell you. If you're still in the dark, read on.

Both are coming to a screen near in two short films, part of a new campaign from PokerStars.

They're produced by Vaughan Arnell, whose regular work for companies like Levis, or with artists such as Robbie Williams, make him the sought after kind of film maker. In this case he's produced two great videos, set in Madrid and Barcelona, where the two stars make a living in their day job.


Facebook fans of Ronaldo and Neymar Jr were given a sneak preview before they air for the first time on global television later this month. Each features poker as the centrepiece of the athletes' evening with friends, and highlights the fun, social and competitive aspects of the game.


If you managed somehow to miss them, you can now watch both videos right here. They look great. I for one want to work out a bit more, move to Spain, and well, play poker.

Anyway, see for yourself by going to, or clicking here for the Ronaldo video and here for the Neymar Jr video.
