In a quirky take, the current brand film takes forward the fictional concept established in the previous films about how poker helped in the evolution of various momentous aspects through the course of human history. The new brand film takes the popular folklore of how Newton discovered gravity and gives a poker twist to it. Contrary to the popular belief that the fall of an apple planted the idea of gravity into Newton’s mind, it was indeed a eureka moment when the cards fell down from his hand while playing a game of poker with his friends. And that’s how poker helped in the evolution of humans via the discovery of gravity which then culminated in space exploration.
