There are a lot of tv commercials featuring football players, cricket players, etc. How about chess players? Two commercials come to mind.

  1. Kasparov vs Machine Pepsi Commercial
  2. Korchnoi Milk commercial

Are there more like this? Recent chessable and chess.com commercials don't count, since I doubt they appeared on tv.

    I really don't get why you got a down-vote for that question. I find that very interesting and the two examples are pretty funny.

  • Then there shouldn't be that 'famous-players' tag you used if you are only only ever allowed to ask strictly game related questions.
