Pat Rafter is back in undies

Bonds has launched new campaign featuring an awkward Pat Rafter stripped down to his undies.

The 60-second ad sees the former tennis champion under pressure from his agent to strip to his underwear one last time for the clothing brand.

“Nobody wants to see a 40-year old dad in their undies on TV”, says Rafter in the ad, which breaks today.

The agency behind the campaign was Banjo.

A press release from the agency reads: “Bonds and Banjo wrote a category-breaking spot that will engage the blokes of Australia through its honesty, humour and pure cheekiness. A script that finally convinced Pat to break his contract and do a last hoorah in his underwear.”
