BrasilNut’s Top 5 Best Poker Music Videos

5. Tony G ‘I’m the Captain’

Tony G is one of those annoying big-mouthed guys who you love to hate. Here is a rap someone put together with his classic lines. A bit repetitive but funny.

4. WSOP Theme Song

This is really catchy with some nice lyrics and cool images of famous players. Gets me quite excited about one day playing there…

3. ‘All in’ featuring Pro Hoe Zak, Raw, Alexander Neil and Holly Rae. The video also features poker pros Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan and Layne Flack.

Professionally done. Would have been number one if not for the ads, product placement and just seems to cut off about 3/4 out of the way through. Nevertheless, not bad.

2. The Gambler

The music was originally meant for another song which was blocked so it doesn’t really match the imagery which is quite good. Classic scenes from films featuring poker, amazingly no James Bond though! If it had the original song by Kenny Rogers with the classic lyrics of ‘know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em’ and some Bond scenes it would have won first place easily!

1. Cartman (South Park) v Lady Gaga in Poker Face.

Two different versions. I think Cartman wins this one hands down.
