    Do you like the new ad with Hewitt "playing the wall" on a side of a running Yonex truck?

    I do. Nice to see those running smashes. I don't think they are tricked. No need, at his level.

    I like it simply because it's different. It doesn't rely on artistic artistry:mrgreen: or double meanings. It's just simple and functional.

    Had never occurred to me to practice "in between legs" with the wall, hummm.

  8. Clever spot. But they should have had the truck overheat and retire due to exhaustion.

    Or Hewitt makes a racial slur at it.

    "Oy loyk it. Ew should troy it."

    Very interesting commercial. I wasn't sure if it was a shoe advertisement or a racquet advertisement until the end.

    Lucky the strings are changeable in most of the modern racquets :rolleyes: (sorry).

    That said, I had my two (MP) Yonex's strung up with BB XP & BB Original the other week to compare. Haven't used ALU, but have to say that I hate the 'original' :(

    LOL ! Yeah, maybe he's hoping to catch the truck by surprise ! :rolleyes: I wonder how many takes they had ? Would have been funnier if the truck sped away with Hewitt yelling out from a distance...........C'monnnnn !

    Like it

    Haven't seen it in the US! Simple, but effective. I don't know why I don't own a Yonex because I liked them a lot during playtesting.

    It's an intresting commerical. But I like the Head Flexpoint one because JUan Carlos Ferror at the end of the commerical says "Feel's like power and control" with his spainsih accent

    I like the commercial with the dude fumbling around changing tapes on his camera while his wife gets stolen by a French dude. She's cute and her facial expressions are perfect.
