Second Serve


By Nick Georgandis

Venus and Serena Williams are universally well-known for their play on the court and for not having a problem speaking their minds.
But in starring in a new commercial for the IPhone 5, the famous sisters get their point across without uttering a single word.

The pair put their game faces on in a dream sequence, playing ping pong against an unseen opponent while dressed completely in white (save Serena’s blue Nike head band).

Despite their prominence in racquet sports, the pair can’t get a step up on our unseen protagonist, because after all, he’s dreaming, and with the new Apple iPhone 5’s Do Not Disturb feature, he’ll keep dreaming, regardless of who might be calling, texting or Facebooking him.

Unfortunately, it seems a considerable glitch was revealed in the software the same day the commercial was released, but there’s no blaming the Williams sisters, they still look great.
