We’ve all been there. 

You’ve played an unreal match in your pub league and thought to yourself, “I could maybe do this on the biggest stage”.

It’s a nice fantasy to have, but have you ever considered the reverse? 

What if a pro player thought, “there’s a lot of competition on this stage, I wonder how I’d do in a pub match with no pressure”.

Well, going into the 2024 World Darts Championship, some of the best darts players in the world got that opportunity…

2023 PDC Christmas Advert

Leading into the Christmas period and the 2024 World Darts Championship, the PDC pulled off a great promotional campaign. 

They arranged a ‘pub competition’ with a twist. 

Alongside the average competitors, there were going to be four select players also competing. 

These are familiar faces to any darts fan, however, the four players were going to be entering the competition undercover. 

Nathan Aspinall, Joe Cullen, Chris Dobey and Jonny Clayton were sent in for hair and makeup and would be attending the competition as a bunch of regular guys. 

Unrecognisable and in disguise, the pro’s rocked up to the pub ready to play.

Needless to say, they started cruising through the rounds with relative ease but held back enough to not arouse suspicion. 

Most competitors would say things like “this guy doesn’t miss many doubles” or “I think I’ve just been beaten by the winner”. 

You can always tell when you’re playing against a proper PLAYER, but the PDC stars seemed to hold back just enough to not give away the fact that they are literally some of the best players in the entire world!

We’re not going to give too many spoilers but there were two pros in the final and before coming out to play the match, all players removed their disguises to the surprise and joy of the other competitors/spectators. 

Afterward all the players showed how top class the pro players are these days, seeming to have a genuine laugh with everyone in the pub whilst signing merch and taking pictures. 

This is definitely one of the best promotions we’ve seen, check out the full video below produced by the PDC and let us know in the comments what you think 👇
