Probably The Most Cliche Photo Shoot Rafa Has Ever Done.

August 13, 09

A boat, open ocean, breeze billowing your unbuttoned white shirt and unchecked curly locks, huge steering wheel… What else could a man want?

This was a photoshoot for the promotional ads of the Balearic Islands, of which we all know Rafa is the ambassador.

Says the article from

The tennis player Rafa Nadal manacorí began recording on a sailboat in Majorca, before leaving the Montreal Masters Series, the first part of the new promotional ad for Balearics attract tourism to the various islands for the next season.

Now tell me Rafanatics, did it in any way make you care more about the Islands?

I guess, faced with yards of Rafaskin as enticement and also distraction, yes and no.

The link to this extrordinary piece of news came from Risha, and this is for Risha, whose birthday is today.

Happy birthday Risha love, finish your thesis soon, and thank you for sharing some Rafa love with us.

        The same thing happened to me. After forever (it seems) of Rafa drought, he is now on my TV, semi-nekkid on the computer. . .

    As you know, I lost all ability to speak when I first saw these. It doesn’t matter that it is clichéd and oh! so predictable.. I don’t even care that much about the islands. That is just too much wonderfulness in one post for my heart to bear.

    ‘huge steering wheel’… OH YEAH. LOL.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes, bb. Birthday wishes on a website read by thousands.. I’ve got it made! :D *kiss* xo

    Have just recovered from a faint… No sweet Rafa here, he is hot hot hot.

    BTW we all know he goes fishing in a boat, but does anyone know if he’s a sailor too?

    They should have a promotion. Grand prize being a weekend with Rafa on a yacht. Of course Rafa will want to fish the whole time, but u will enjoy all the same bec he does it shirtless.

    OMG has someone of the Balearic marketing posse entered my mind and dug out my dream fantasy with Rafa??? It’s so scary.

    And cheesy or not – who cares?! It’s Rafa with open shirt, and the wind, and the huge boat and all… Bronzedskinbicepslovelylocksyummyabs you know.

    *waits anxiously*

    Have you all seen the video posted on Nadal News and seen the swanky cabin interior which has inspired some very improper thoughts for breakfast time?
