    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'.

    ^^^ That is what I think of your signature. Talk about fanboyism.

    lmao, that was hilarious.

    but apparently, not many people share this humor.
    ahah.

    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:
     
  23. 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. :)

    That was awesome. Who cares if it aired.... there's such a thing as a lost treasure. :)

    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.

    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.
     

  32. THAT would be even more creepy. :shock::shock:

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

    lol, I thought that was hilarious. I especially liked the nip tassles part. I actually laughed out loud for real at that part.

    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
