Videos: Roger Federer Dons a Mustache, Serena Williams Gets “Nerdy”
(June 19, 2013) Wilson Tennis has unmasked their latest promotional videos for their Steam racquet line that utilizes Spin Effect technology, and it has turned tennis veterans Roger Federer and Serena Williams into quite convincing comedians.
In one of the videos, Federer dons a fake mustache as he hits the courts with a practice partner that looks eerily similar to another Wilson Tennis athlete, German Philipp Kohlschreiber. Federer’s comedic timing is impeccable as he first stumps his rival on the court, and then pleasantly introduces his secret weapon, the Spin Effect technology.
I guess there is hope for us normal folks to play like the King of Tennis after all!
We all also know that Serena Williams is quite a character as well, and her nerdy alter ego “Summer” didn’t disappoint in Wilson Tennis’ other humorous video.
Sporting black hipster glasses and a floppy hat, “Summer” steps in to replace an instructor for a clinic. While the kids question her true identity, “Summer” goofily shouts at her pupils (“Focus on your shottt!”) as if she were talking to herself during a match. She then introduces them to the Steam 99S racquet with Spin Effect technology and all their tennis worries are washed away. Come for the comedy, stay for the punch line at the end.
