Federer’s amazing trick shot

The video below was shot on the set of Roger Federer’s new commercial for Gillette Fusion in the U.K., and has more than 4 million views on YouTube so far. Still, no-one’s sure if it’s real or faked. Federer knocks an empty water bottle off a crew member’s head (twice) with blazing speed.


Gillette won’t say if it’s real or a digital trick, however a spokeswoman tells Mashable:

All we’ll say at the moment is we’ll leave the ‘real or fake’ debate up to the viewers, but the evidence is there to see. Roger’s skill and ability is incredible (that’s why he’s a Gillette ambassador!) so of course it was filmed in one take during a shoot for Gillette Fusion’s partnership with the British Skin Foundation.

I think it’s real personally, I mean he is the world’s #1 with a racket and ball, and he should have that sort of accuracy. That said, I wouldn’t have wanted to be the crew member.
