We already told you guys about the venture the Renegade of Instagram, as we nicknamed him, has been up to lately. It turns out sometimes he really does work for the millions he spends on poker games. Well, it’s not really working, but it’s doing something he gets payed for. In fact, he got quite a lot of money for this one.

A $24 million contract

Gaming company BGO signed Bilzerian and Hollywood movie star Verne Troyer in a £15 million ($24 million) campaign. So the two got together, envisioned as the good guy-bad guy characters in a short, but funny advertorial. Dan Bilzerian is accompanied by a big gorilla named Gerarld the Gorilla, which seems to play the role of his bodyguard/money keeper. He also has a gorgeous brunette, probably for the good luck.

For the new advertorial, Bilzerian brought his beloved 6x6 machine. The 33-year-old poker player had this one specially built and there was no saving money when buying it, considering he dropped $900,000 for the contraption. The Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 has been transformed into a Brabus B63S-700 6x6 in a state-of-the-art shop in the town Bottrop, Germany.

Not only does it look like a tank, it also comes with similar performances. Its engine produces 700 horsepower and 708 lb-ft (960 Nm) of torque. It’s very strong, but won’t be able to accelerate too fast considering it weighs about 4 tons.
