Video: UFC's Georges St Pierre Stars In Google Nexus 7 Ad As 'Dr. Paul'

UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is starring in a new ad for Google's Nexus 7 tablet. GSP fights a trio of stop-motion ninjas, it's pretty rad. It's directed by Patrick Boivin. No information is currently available about where the ad will run or when.

GSP is currently recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his knee. He is expected to return to face UFC Interim Welterweight champ Carlos Condit sometime late in 2012. GSP is one of the few UFC fighters to secure major A-list corporate sponsorships such as Gatorade and Under Armour.

Here's more about the Nexus 7:

Google's Nexus 7 tablet can now be ordered on more retail websites worldwide, but so far the less expensive US$199 model remains exclusive to Google's Play online store, according to current listings.

Retailers such as Staples, B&H Photo and Video, and Best Buy Canada have listed only the pricier Nexus 7 model with 16GB of storage, which starts at $249 depending on the region. The stores have not listed the cheaper 8GB model, which is available on the Google Play online store for $199.

Google late last month at its developer conference announced the Nexus 7 with 8GB and 16GB of storage. The tablet, made with Asus, has Google's latest Android 4.1 operating system code-named Jelly Bean and a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The 16GB model is priced at $249 on the Google Play store, with shipping beginning in mid-July. The same tablet is also listed for on Staples' website for $249, with shipping scheduled to start Thursday to next Tuesday.
