Always fashion forward, Serena Williams has never been shy about flaunting her game, her style and her body on the tennis court. But it seems that a little Serena goes a little too far in a recent ad for the upcoming Top Spin 4 video game.
Dressed in a black leotard and stockings, Williams (labeled in the commercial as "The World's Sexiest Tennis Player) squares off against an equally seductively dressed Rileah Vanderbilt ("The World's Sexiest Tennis Gamer") over a backdrop of pulsating techno music and grunts that are more reminiscent of bedroom sports than outdoor ones.
The ad was actually rejected by 2K Sports - who produced the game for the Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 - but was uploaded to the internet by Vanderbilt who later tweeted the link. Since then neither Vanderbilt nor Williams has commented on the commercial.
I don't know if it makes me want to buy a tennis-themed video game. But it would make me less likely to zoom past this commercial on the DVR.
