Surrounded by cookies – yum!

Well, more like crackers, but a gal can dream, can’t she?

First up, a photoshoot with Rafa (papa Nadal and Carlos Costa came along for the ride).

Next up, a longer video with Rafa touring the factory, signing contracts and then a repeat of the photoshoot:

    Shucks could this boy be any cuter? Love the eyebrow when he looking at the racquet with the cookie in it. Ha ha .

    • miri says:

      I think that’s my favorite too. On the other hand, I really dislike the shot of him with his arm up on something (can’t remember) and his chest all puffed out – just looks silly…and not in a good way. Oh, and the first shot where it looks like he has pink lip gloss on to match the shirt!

    enjoyed this… reminded me of how colorful Rafa’s shirts are… I think my favorite shot was the last one.

  3. Missy says:

    *giggles* I swear, can Rafa BE any cuter?!
    What a HONEY! He’s just beautiful. What a 180 degree turn from the music vid.

    Miri, I think you should rename the post “Surrounded by Rafa -Yum!”

    He is absolutely gorgeous, and everyone around him look like they are enjoying themselves so much and are so smiley and relaxed! I just flove the moments Rafa has where his eyes light up and glitter in childlike wonder. It’s a blessing to have such interest like that. <3

    Vamos Rafa, you are the sweetest cookie ever.
    I can't wait to eat Quelys too! I think it'd go great with Nutella!

  4. Missy says:

    How freaking ADORABLE was he when he did his little fist pump? raised his eyebrow? looked around himself as they were pouring the cookies and then was so careful getting up as not to step on them.


    Will watch again.

      Did anyone else suddenly have a flashback of the ‘Shining’ (the infamous twin girls in the hallway scene) @ 1:18? *shivers*

      HOLY CRAP that kid creeped me out. Bring back the cute Rafa!

      • Missy says:

        It looks like Rafa’s in pain at 1:40. He’s like “What the heck guys, c’mon! Look at all of these precious cookies!”

        • Ch F says:

          Yes he really looks like he wants to eat those cookies more than he wanted to kiss Shakira in the last scene of the video. ;-)

    So now I’m imagining Team Nada’s 2010 Strategy Meeting: “Okay this year I want to focus on cookies and music videos. Not so much with the watches. They are hard to put on.” “Excellent! With this strategy we will have excellent market coverage, and these cookies are delicious.”

    • Missy says:

      Hehe, Rafa+cookies, it’s genius! Why hadn’t it been thought of before. I totally want to see him do Oreo cookies commercials now and have a guest appearance on Sesame Street with his brotha from anotha motha, the great Cookie Monster himself!

      At the end of the vid, when Rafa is just so tickled that he falls out laughing with the rest of the crew is just too sweet. When the photographer went over to help him up (he appeared to be employing the “lift from under the arms” strategy. I immediately got a flashback of the Davis Cup when Rafa was hoisted up on to poor Feli’s shoulders by the entire Davis cup team. LOL! Feli was totally rubbing his lower back after that. Later in the presser, when Rafa was talking about soccer and referred to himself as being a beast at it, Feli was like “you weight too much”. XD)

      So I think the photographer should leave someone else to do the heavy lifting. Hmmmm, ladies, with our combined efforts – strong will – and desire, I think (with great Rafanatic teamwork) we can carry him. :))

      P.S. I always get such a kick out of RAfa when he does those awesome trick-thingies with his racket. I mean, he doesn’t even look! I don’t care how often I see him do it ( or that other players do it too) it never seizes to impress me. Rafa’s smile? Officially the eight wonder of the world. *melts*

      • Missy says:

        ( or that other players do it too)*

        *it’s not as cool as Rafa. He just has this swagger and stYel that…well, you simply can’t teach.

    JAJAJA! Thanks Miri :) It’s true, IE 6 sucks so freaking much that I couldn’t find the contact link. My IT department, resisting changes!!

  7. tiemyshoe says:

    I know Quely sells cookies, but their ad campaigns are pure CHEESE. (ba-dum-chee)

  8. Atch2 says:

    The photoshoot is wonderful. He gets to be himself and laugh as much as he wants here. Rafa in his element, but what, no shot of Rafa chewing?

    Luv Rafa in his t and jeans, but he is so darn cute in his playing outfit, especially miss the bandana.

    Shakira can have her volcanic rock and black dust, I’d luv to roll around with Rafa on the cookie rug.

    Rafa’s such a natural people-person.

  9. CC says:

    Love the whole friggin’ film (apart from BROWN ugly suit and BROWN ugly cardigan, geeze…), especially the tongue at 1:09 and the CUTE little girl.

    • An says:

      Its time for 2 permanent sylists for Rafa, No CC?
      And guess what, we know the perfect candidates for the job, No? ;)

      *typing conditions for the contract… No arguing with CC or/and An over wich clothes Rafa has to wear or not to wear;)*

      • CC says:

        *signs contract*

        • Missy says:

          Heheh, I’m the complete opposite CC. I actually love him in suits and cardigans, and I didn’t mind the brown (though, I most definitely prefer him in other colors). And the little girl? *shivers* “REDRUM!” I guess I need to lay off Fright Night on Showtime…

          I absolutely LOVE that video. Rafa being Rafa and all smiley, sweet and looking like a bag of Skittles. :D

    Looove Rafa in USO yellow kit. Sunshine yellow is my favourite Rafa>

  11. dutchgirl says:

    Am I the only one who likes these kind of videos better than the video with Shakira?
    I think Rafa is so much sexier in the video with the photoshoot!
    My favourite shot is when he sticks his tongue out :P

  12. faeaki7 says:

    Love him sticking his tongue out, Rafa looks so comfortable here and at the end of the photo shoot thinking how he is gonna get up without crushing the cookies and cracking up at the same time. He is so boyish here like I think we all love him, his smiles are adoreable, he is adoreable anyway!

    • Atch2 says:

      Is he tryg not to crush the cookies bec he thinks he gets to take them home if he doesn’t? I know Maymo has u on a high carb diet but watch the cookie intake Rafa ;D & We didn’t see him eat any AO.

  13. faeaki7 says:

    I am not keen on Rafa in brown either, cardigans?? love him in his brights to match his personality, just seeing him in his tennis attire with his famous bandanas makes me miss watching him on court so much. I feel a little nostalgic…

    • An says:

      He will be hadding for IW somewhere next week… Just a little more patience:)
      I’m counting the days too!

  14. Maya says:

    Rafa is a very generous guy. There’s Quely for those who prefer “Cookie Rafa” and “Gypsy” for those who prefer a sexy, sultry Rafa. A win-win situation I call it.

  15. Dale C. A. says:

    mindblowingly cute Rafa!!!!

  16. Maria says:

    What a cookie :-)
