I just watch a video on Go To Tennis that features Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils. Exciting, huh? Well, the video is actually a music video for a collaborative tune by French DJ Martin Solveig and the Canadian group Dragonette.
The video features two tennis players, who are welcomed to a stadium to much fanfare. There are two characters – one wearing head-to-toe Fred Perry/Lacoste; white short shorts, white polo shirt, white shoes, white socks, and striped headband. The other one attempts to emulate an 80’s version of Andre Agassi; Nike Air Tech Challenge II Lava, Hot Lava windbreaker, 80’s-patterened polo and a ragged mop of hair and dirty beard.
Like ever good story – this one is about love, with the Agassi-type getting cheered on by a gaggle of attractive women in colorful spandex. Without any sort of love or interest, the man in white is losing 6-0, 6-0. But at match point in the third set, a lady of interest steps in, carrying one of his headbands in her hand. He gets a surge of confidence and hits a solid ball, but the referee calls it out. He complains and suddenly Novak Djokovic
comes from the locker room and helps him complain, shaking the umpire’s chair until he comes down and inspects the clay himself. He says it’s in! Djokovic leaves.
The white man goes on get his match point (of course), solely on the surge of…excitement…he has experienced by this woman showing up to watch him play. As he is about to win the match, Gael Monfils
, the French stud that he is, walks up to the girl and they passionately embrace. The white guy then gives up the match.
Those sensitive musicians.
