Vermillion was right. All ping pong needs is more exposure and then it's sure to become wildly popular. I think the best way to accomplish this would be to get some major hip-hop & rap stars to play ping pong in their videos. These guys are legendary trend-setters and if people see them playing ping pong, it's going to catch on. Just imagine a video with Lil' Wayne playing ping pong vs. Kanye? It would be OFF DA HOOK for sure. Probably would be #1 on TRL for who knows how many weeks. Then, as a follow-up, in his next video Jay-Z could be shown playing ping pong vs. Ludacris. Both of them would be playing with totally bling'ed out ping pong paddles. It would be INSANE! To top it all off, there could be a video that featured the SNOOPER BOWL of Ping Pong -- THIS IS HOW WE DO. Of course, Snoop Dogg would be the favored player but he'd be matched up against his old friend Dr. Dre, so who knows what could happen. INSTANT recognition and street cred for ping pong is a given, no matter who wins. Footlocker would probably start selling ping pong paddles the next day. And finally, Diddy could host a reality show on MTV called Making the Team - Ping Pong Battles. The contestants would have to play ping pong matches against each other and rap AT THE SAME TIME! It would probably revolutionize not just ping pong but probably hip-hop & rap as well. So if anyone has any connections at MTV or any of the major record labels, feel free to suggest this to them. I'd appreciate it if you let them know it was my idea so I could get some of the royalty fees.
