Hello, Rafael Nadal! The eighth-ranked tennis player in the world is making headlines off the court, all while stripping down to nothing more than his Tommy Hilfiger underwear for the designer’s new fall campaign — and you can check out the hot shoot right here.
It looks like all that work on the court is totally paying off for Rafael Nadal! The 14-time Grand Slam winner, 29, is taking it all off for his new role as Tommy Hilfiger‘s new brand ambassador. The tennis player stripped down for the role, which includes being the face, (and bod!), of Tommy Hilfiger underwear, clothing, and a new men’s fragrance, TH Bold. The athlete inked a two-year deal with the brand, and we couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off!
Tommy Hilfiger is relaunching their underwear business — and what better way to announce a new launch than with a sexy campaign? “Rafael Nadal has been a longtime personal friend and supporter of our brand, and I’m continually inspired by his dedication and passion for his sport,” Tommy Hilfiger said. “This exclusive partnership brings one of the greatest athletes of this generation into our Tommy family. Rafael embodies an effortless sense of style that exemplifies and reflects our brand spirit – he’s confident, fun and cool.”
“I’ve always admired Tommy Hilfiger’s cool, all-American designs which are sophisticated and easy to wear, and I’m excited to be partnering with the brand,” the underwear model, (and 14-time Grand Slam winner), said.
Rafael is no stranger to stripping down — in fact, in 2011, he starred in the Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans campaigns alongside Megan Fox. You can get ready to see a whole lot more of Rafael, as his bod will be featured on billboards in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Hong Kong, Mexico City and Melbourne.
