You know I was thinking it would be cool to have one, appart from the fact everyone in the UK would not understand it.

LOL!

BTW, I'd like to get one of those T-shirts (women's line), but the shipping costs are about $23!! That's almost twice the price of the T-shirt. Since I'll be going to the US open anyway, I was wondering if these T-shirts are for sale there. Does anyone know?

Same here, it looks like they got some kid and he put the FONT ON THE BIGGEST SO HE COULD FILL THE WHOLE SHIRT WITH WORDS! :lol:

what? It rules.

Esp Jelena's "I'm a tough bitch, i'm gonna put this ball down here and I don't care what you say about it" and Serena's "I'm gonna slap u with my 5ft long blond hair like some Mortal Kombat character's death move".

They could make it an international campaign... get the players in a big giant camper van, singing songs, get a few joints n mushrooms in, and trippin' round the world promoting the wonderful magical world of womens tennis.

Yes, but what are they supposed to be, Bond girls?

I dunno. Looks like they're all high & looking at all the amazing trips n hallucinations they're having as they drive around in their hippie van.

Its got potential.

Dava
Jul 29th, 2003, 04:08 PM
Yes it has,

But Serena, Kim and Amelie all strike Bond Girl Style poses, and Justine in the longer one does a Kung Fu thing, and Elena D, does that swishy hair thing.

Theres just so many possibilities.... and they chose that pink writing bollocks. Its a travesty on the part of their advertising executives.

Justine's thing is hilarious. No idea what she was thinking bless her.

They could be bond girls too.... going undercover in the crowd to "eliminate" the spectator with the loud mobile phone... defusing bombs.... entering the court for a big match from a bungee cord from the ceiling or parachuting down.... rackets with secret tranquilizer darts coming out the bottom of the handle...

...and all in a pink bus, which hardly touches the ground.

Does anyone have an MPEG of it! I NEED IT!

Glenn
Jul 29th, 2003, 04:26 PM
There's a new one out already.
It's no longer tennis balls and shit, it's still a van but Myskina, Hantuchova, etc. is also in it.

Dava

duh, obviously that's the point of the campaign.

my point is that it failed, miserably.

You're probably not gay so you don't have a radar for it. :p ;)

gay dar? sounds more like a desperate homosexual panting after a straight man he cannot have. No wonder so many straight men have issues with gay men.

1. :topic:

2. You don't know shit about how anyone feels or thinks.

3. Only conservative living in the past lowlifes still have problems with sexual preference, it's called racism, just like anyone would hate on BLACKS.

How am I off topic when you, the creator of thread, brought up the whole radar thing?

Also I do know "shit about how anyone feels or thinks" especially on this topic as I have a gay brother.

And if you think only conservatives are racist or homophobic well I am afraid that you are naive.

Well, you're conservative and a lowlife and you seem to be. :p

Just kidding though.

Seriously, I've heard Gambill is out as bisexual, not that I care, as I think he's ugly.

Let's get back to the original subject though.

Who on the ATP planet would actually wear one of those? :confused:

Wow if I am conservative there must be millions of weird freaky ultra liberal pot smoking free wheeling good time feeling liberals out there.


Oh and the shirt really sucks. Don't these wta officials have a marketing department and a graphic designer?

Cariaoke

I'd like to elaborate on my point that the shirt sucks.

huge letters, like the ones on said shirt, work better on print or ads. It does not translate well on wearable things because it shouts and the letters will run off under someone's arm or get tucked in to one's pants, defeating the purpose. And the left alignment on the shirt, sucks. It would have been better if it was centered.
