I just looked up "Svensson" and I was surprised to see that there are 8 people with that name :shock:

That was way too funny.

We need that Djokovic back on the court... the Djokovic that didn't look like every second he spent out there was a huge chore.

Head's marketing department's epicfailness knows no bounds. I agree that the word 'creepy' describes it better than 'funny'.

i always liked djokovic's sense of humor. it seems genuinely playful. it's a shame he gets bashed left and right for his, often times misinterpreted, antics. although i guess his incessant need to call a trainer/medical timeout, whether needed or not, doesn't help his image either.

a little too long with the flirting part. They should have ended the flirting with the nipple tassels and have him walk back onto the court with it still on him--now, that would be hilarious.

Just think, Head could probably sell a bunch of Tshirts with nipple tassels on them.

I used to work for an advertising company.

Good ad but at 2 minutes I wonder if it ever aired. Looks like it was for the web and internal Head Corp use.

In which countries did that ad run? Or is it a web promo?

My only complaint is that it's too long for a commercial.

Gives a new dimension to bad taste... What was Head thinking? :shock:

That must have been one heck of an overhead for the ball to hang in the air for such a long time.


You don't see Federer hitting overheads like that. :)

Hahah thats great,
But how is this a head ad?
It doesnt really promote much.

lol, the message behind this is ... that due to the control and power (aka "speed") behind this racket nole can fool around on the most extreme shot, but still have enough time to play that passing shot winner.

see how the woman tells nole "haha, that was funn, but dont you have a shot to play?" and he's like O_O oh ya, nearly forgot about that, but still plays a winning shot.

It was cheesy, sure.

I almost lost my drink when the backup dancers showed up, though.

I thought it was clever, in a wacky way, and topical too, with the Navy Seals gag (I'm sure that wasn't deliberate). However, it starts out with Novak shanking a shot (quite commonplace since he switched to Head), so I don't think it says much for the racquet.

Thanks for explaining its hidden meaning :roll:

I love my Prestige Mids but I am so ashamed to be using any head product after seeing this.

I think Nole would like a career in show business after tennis. Let's hope it's not porn.

Would be short career. Directors wouldn't like somebody who retires before the money shot for strange reasons.

I'd laugh out loud, except since you're such a Nole hater, I wouldn't want to encourage you. :P

I thought that was a good ad if anything entertaining, Nole should act after tennis. He can take Lopez and Nando with him :P
