Behind the scenes with Rafa Nadal

rafa-nadal.PNGLast night Andy Murray won his first tennis Grand Slam. Congratulations to him, just another ten until he's drawn level with Team PokerStars SportStar Rafa Nadal. While we can't show you how Murray enjoyed his win post his drop-to-the-floor, point-to-the-heavens celebration, we can give you a behind-the-scenes peek into how Rafa's new worldwide PokerStars ad was created.

If you would like to see any of the following things then you're going to be in luck; Rafa getting strapped to a camera, Rafa being unable to get out of his jacket because he's strapped to a camera, a man fall over, several creative types talk unironically like sitcom characters, big cameras, a Rafa fist pump, a British man who has obviously spent too much time in the edit suite and then really too much time in the Spanish sun, an unflattering Rafa body double, and to realise how the magic of TV is deceiving you.

If any of those were on your check-list then you can consider today a win no matter how you fared on the tables. Watch the following video to get a glimpse into how Rafa's PokerStars video was produced. It's an eye-opener.
