Roger Federer is no stranger to making spectacular shots. We saw him hit this amazing between-the-legs passing shot at the ’09 U.S. Open, then do it again the next year, and reproduce it at Shanghai in October. But his trick shots aren’t limited to the court in live action — he’s been filmed doing them off the court too. The thing is, most of those videos are advertisements for a product that are intended to go viral. Take for instance this video of Roger “pranking his coach” with tennis balls in a car. Tell me this isn’t an ad for Mercedes Benz.
As The Daily Record points out, Federer signed with Mercedes a year ago. Any coincidence this has come out or that it was uploaded by “mbusa”? Of course not, but even in exposing the video for what it is — an advertisement — Mercedes still gets a plug, so I guess it was worth it.Google+
