Wait a minute, you mean we weren’t watching a nationally-televised regulation tennis game? Apparently Serena Williams’ Top Spin 4 ad is too sexy for TV, or so thinks the company who made it. We did think the fishnets would be extremely chafing. The scandalous ad features Williams in a skimpy leotard going toe-to-toe with actress Rileah Vanderbilt, or the “world’s sexiest tennis gamer.” Call us suspicious, but we don’t believe that woman even knows how to properly put topspin in her backhand! Oh right, not a real game. Those grunts are very misleading.
Vanderbilt tweeted the ad on Monday, but apparently it wasn’t ready for human consumption quite yet. The nation demands more crotch shoots! “As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues,” 2K Sports said a statement. “This video is not part of the title’s final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized.” Since both Serena and her sister Venus Williams sport tiny tennis outfits, we just naturally assumed we were watching live footage of Wimbledon through their new confetti-cam. We mean…Serena won, didn’t she?
