Kasparov advertises bank

Everyone needs money. I need, you need, they need. Chess players also need money. If you are the world champion you need much more money.
If you have a "good" surname, it's very easy to earn. Good example is Garri Kasparov. One of the best player in the history of our sport adverts the bank. It's hard to imagine how much does he earn for that, but it's a lot of money.
Important is that this advert is funny. It shows that even chess players have sense of humor.
In general chess doesn't appear too often in the TV. Sometimes in films. Rarely in adverts. As far as I remember last time I saw the advert of pills with chess in background.

  1. Kasparov has done many things since retiring. But the thing I'm most surprised at is his lack of progression in politics, the main reason for his retirement. Unless he's playing it like he played chess.
