A marketing campaign by Chrysler that highlights Americans who have achieved success in various industries includes poker pro Phil Ivey in a new TV commercial in which the 10-time WSOP champ is featured.

In the new ad, Ivey is seen from behind while walking - presumably to his car outside of a casino - before the camera focuses on a 2015 Chrysler 300. “There’s nothing wrong with being flashy," says narrator Peter Dinklage, who starred on HBO's 'Game of Thrones.'

The action then centers on a face shot of Ivey as he continues walking, as Dinklage ends his narrative by stating, "so long as you’ve done the work to back it up.” The camera reverts back to the flashy Chrysler making its way down the road and we see one more quick shot of Ivey behind the wheel.

This marks the second Chrysler commercial in which poker's best all-around player has appeared. Last month, Ivey was in a 60-second spot that included other successful Americans such as Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and assistant coach Becky Hammon of the San Antonio Spurs, whose paths to success can best be described as less than conventional.

Ivey, of course, is 3rd on the all-time live tournament money list with over $23 million in winnings. The Hendon Mob lists Phil as being no. 1 in the rankings based on popularity.

The Chrysler 300 marketing scheme showcasing Ivey and the others is set to run through June, so we may see the poker and edge-sorting pro in another ad before the campaign runs its course.
