Federer trick shot

The face of Gillette’s sensitive skin campaign, Roger Federer, tosses up two serves that knock a bottle clean off a crew member’s head. Doesn’t seem fully scripted, and it’s pretty entertaining. Ah, finally the modern version of the old “bow n’ arrow shoots an apple off someone’s head” trick. Enjoy.

Here’s a guy that (now ranked #2) was ranked #1 for 237 consecutive weeks and has won 16 Grand Slam singles titles. Despite his astonishing accomplishments, he remains humbled. Involved in numerous charity organizations, he even created his very own Roger Federer Foundation in ’03. Federer is a great model for how athletes can use their positions of power and fame towards good causes. Plus he knows how to pick his sponsors– Gillette, Lindt, Nike, Rolex, and Mercedes. So he grooms right, eats fine, dresses comfortably, always knows what time it is, and makes a great first impression in his S-class (assuming you haven’t already seen him on TV…which is assuming a lot). That’s wasup–a high-class, highly profitable, highly charitable superstar athlete who uses (not abuses) his good fortune.

Clap for him.
