What deck of cards is this?

Postby erdnasephile » October 12th, 2015, 3:41 pm

In the States, there is currently a frequently played television commercial for the Lincoln MKX.

Here is the long version: http://www.lincoln.com/crossovers/mkx/? ... nning-hand

At 1:47, the characters start playing poker. Does anyone happen to know what deck this is and if any magician consulted on this commercial?

Thanks!

Those cards appear to be David Blaine Gatorbacks.

I have no info whether or not any magician consulted on the spot though.

Best,
Alan

Thanks, Alan--I looked up those cards. I think you're right!

I thought it was kind of weird the winning hand in the commercial was a straight flush with no court cards. Usually directors (and magicians) tend to go for the royal flush in spades for the pat hand.

That's just one reason that McConaughey is cooler than the average magician.
