Nationals' Bryce Harper naps like a champion in latest Gatorade ad...

We've already seen Bryce Harper taking ice from his ice pack to make the perfect drink and we've seen data point Bryce Harper doing his thing with the iced hair, now it's napping Bryce Harper in the Washington Nationals' clubhouse. He's the new silent film star.

Bryce Harper, who led the National League in just about every offensive category there is last season, and took home his first NL MVP Award, talked when he arrived at Spring Training last month about putting even the good things about last season behind him and preparing for the 2016 campaign.

"I just want to win," Harper told reporters.

"I don't care about accolades or numbers or anything like that. I just want to win ballgames and do everything we can to get to the next level, and I know if I can stay healthy and do everything I can to help this team win, then we'll be fine."

Harper talked often this winter about the importance of staying healthy all season and how playing every day in 2015 allowed him to accomplish what he did on the field.

"That's the biggest thing," he said.

"If I can stay healthy, stay through the grind of playing 150-155 games a year and everybody can do that then we'll pull on the same rope and do everything we can to win ballgames and hopefully get to where we need to be."

Part of the preparation and training he does apparently includes taking quick naps in the Nationals' clubhouse, as seen here in the latest Gatorade commercial featuring the 23-year-old Nationals' right fielder:

I'm sure his teammates don't mind the snoring. And yes, that is an instrumental version of Queen's "We Are the Champions" playing while Harper naps.

That's three Gatorade spots for Harper already this season... and he hasn't said a word in any of them...
