Roger Federer, Serena Williams go incognito in new ads
They harbor twelve Wimbledon singles titles between them, and smart new racquet-highlight spots from Wilson Tennis depict Roger Federer and Serena Williams going undercover to aid seemingly hapless hackers on court. Serena dons a straw sun-hat and nerdy spectacles while Fed puts on a curvaceous faux-moustache that makes him look like Super Mario. (We'd wondered why Serena was sporting that hat in a previous Wilson spot.)
See the commercials here:
Which ad do you like better? Says here the Serena bit is quite amusing, almost spastic. On the heels of this week's Steubenville rape-case controversy involving her and Rolling Stone magazine, this is a welcomed, lighthearted departure.
