    I found the commercial to be out of the box and very funny, but I think it was terrible for Head because:
    A) Speed has nothing to do with the racquet. Sure, there is racquet head speed, but what was so crazy was the time it took him it got to the ball. Therefore it is more suited as an Adidas commercial for his shoes.
    B)He hit a bad return in the commercial. The commentator even said bad return. The majority of people that purchase these sticks don't know much about racquets so they follow the ads. No one wants to see a commercial advertising racquets where the player hits a bad shot.

    So what, you'll remember "that Head advert where Djokovic has nipple tassles", much like everyone in the UK knows about those Cadbury adverts.

    No chocolate features, but we'll all talk about it.

    It is my opinion. There were 2 threads on this, and I replied to both of them. It is pathetic that you cant handle another persons opinion. I am not the only one who doesn't like the ad. I will say what I like about the commercial whether you like it or not.

    There is a BIG difference between not liking something and calling it stupid.
    Again, I am not sure you understand the difference...

    In my opinion, it is a stupid commercial. So what is the big deal? I think it is stupid and you can continue to think it was amazing and call out people for saying something negative about the commercial.

    :lol: you hardly had a point begin with. I have every right to call a commercial that involves seals in a tennis stand to be stupid :rolleyes:You come here and criticize my opinion on the commercial. It is obvious you disagree with me and like the commercial even though "amazing" was too strong of a word.

    Kind of corny and funny
    Although I agree with whoever said it doesn't really do the racquet any favors, more like the shoes.

    It's hilarious. And it's really not to be taken too seriously or over analyze. It's funny as befitting Djokovic's personality. Even though he had vowed to be more serious after the slam win, quitting players imitations and all, but a zebra can't change it's stripes. He is a funny guy and really don't mind hamming it up. Can't imaging any other player doing this and pulling it off. :)

    Why so serious? It can't hurt to have a Djoker or two around. :)

    Exactly. It's called branding; they're not trying to cram the thing full of racquet statistics, they're trying to increase brand recognition.

    Exactly right. You have to be a genuinely nice guy to make fun of yourself like he did. That was really funny.

    Let me take a stab at that.
    The advertising agency did a good job with absurdist humor. HEAD's marketing department did a good job greenlighting the ad. Nole played the role well, mostly because he wasn't really even acting. I admit, I smiled, but I still think he's a putz.

    LOL, true, but I actually sort of liked it. And I felt it was stupid. At the same time.

    Hilarious ad.

    Djoker is pretty funny in person too. He was the only guy I saw at Indian Wells who was joking around with people in the crowd when he was practicing.
