Softbank (Japanese mobile communication company) commercials, which are obviously inspired by Sharapova vs Serena :rolls:

In the 2nd CM, white dog says "this match is so loud!" (in Japanese) :rolls:

That commercial is pretty good. :eek: The Serena-like girl actually looks a bit like Serena wearing the Nike outfit from a couple of years ago plus she has a hairstyle Serena wore years ago too. They aren't from the same time period, but it's still not too bad. :shrug: The actresses groundstrokes don't look as horrible as they usually do in commercials either, so that's a big plus by itself. :lol:

The CM producer says:
two French tennis players who have world ranking, Olivia and Natalie, play as "Smaphova" and "BB.Wari". (maybe I spell inaccurately)

Olivia Sanchez and Natalie Piquion would be the 2
They both look similar in the video as in real life

Funniest part for me is at the end when "Sharapova" celebrates win in her own style while "Serena" is mad and throwing recquet. :lol:

That's Sharapova's 2012 AO outfit I think and is that Serena's 2009 Miami outfit?

The dog is like a wise grandfather in the ads. The one where he goes into space is funny, too.

I'm friends with a gay couple and they have 3 Shiba inus, and one of them looks exactly like this dog.

Olivia Sanchez and Natalie Piquion would be the 2

Sanchez is a superstar - she also played a cameo in that Martin Solveig video with Monfils, Djokovic and Mathilde Johansson as a lineswoman. She also tries her best at replicating Martha's imperious blank stare just before beginning her service motion.

Piquion's FH is somewhat reminiscent of Serena's, but Piquion herself is way better looking. :oh:

Even in the commerciales, Japanese still kisses Sharapova's ass by giving her the points. :rolleyes:
