Phil Ivey stars in Chrysler 300 Commercial

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

phil-ivey-chrysler-300It’s a pretty good bet that Phil Ivey doesn’t drive a Chrysler 300 and instead has some mix of top-end luxury cars sitting in his garage. Nevertheless, it’s pretty cool that he got to star in a Chrysler 300 commercial that was recently released.

The commercial is entitled “Kings & Queens of America,” which alludes to the fact that the U.S. has no monarchies or royal blood, but rather entrepreneurs who take what’s out there. Directed by “Game of Thrones” actor actor Peter Dinklage, this 60-second spot includes Chrysler’s version of kings and queens, or rather people who’ve created their own success in life.

To be quite honest, I don’t know who the hell any of these people are beyond Ivey – at least from their faces alone. Luckily, PR Newswire is there to back me up with a tidy little clipping about the commercial. Here’s an excerpt that discusses the random faces I see featured:

Those featured in the campaign include Becky Hammon (first full-time female NBA assistant coach); Alexis Ohanian (tech entrepreneur/Reddit cofounder); Mercedes Yvette (jewelry designer/The Gilded Fox); Lynn Le (founder of sportswear company Society Nine); Caroline Styne (restaurant owner); Nolen Niu (furniture designer/Nolen Niu Inc.); Avi Brosh (hotelier); Kwaku Alston (photographer); Andrew Sasson (hotelier); Tiffany Schrade (jewelry designer); Smith Henderson (novelist); Phil Ivey (professional gambler/entrepreneur); and Shawn Williams (martial arts studio owner/instructor).

Okay, so I’ve heard of Becky Hammon, I know what Reddit is, and I know of Ivey pretty well…so I think that I’m good. Assuming you’d like to watch the commercial yourself and see if you can identify any of these money monarchs, then take a crack below:
