    Lee's has put up their video. Reminds me of footage from communist-era propaganda if you replace the white-blue uniform with the camoflouge green uniform.

    The link on their site is laughably inaccurate. You can download the file here: http://www.leesbadminton.ca/movie.swf

    BRL, it does sort of look like the communist era. Just looking at the end when they're "marching" it gave me that idea

    Yep, that's Jennifer Lee. Well, regardless, you gotta admit that she's managed to build not just a career but also a triving business from badminton and in N. America (no less)!

    Obviously, one key factors is the large population base of immgrants from Asia (most would have played badminton at one time or another).

    well, power to her if she is promoting the game!

    i must say, aside from the marching, which i think looks a bit cheesy, the video is quite well done.

    and check out her birdie feeding speed. i can't even get close to that speed!

    does anyone know where they are showing the video? is it going to be a TV commerical?

    LOL dude, the video is quite hillarious, after reading your comment. It looked like some sort of military showdown :p.

    Actually, I find it quite normal! (except for the marching)

    That's almost exactly how we structure the classes in HK as well.

    Having the same T-shirts I guess gives some formality to the video. Over here, playing in a group or a team means you might get the same T-shirt. It's all for team spirit. Might not suit a culture where individualism is promoted more.

    Personally, I like this video, and somehow, like the uniform as well.

    Just one thing, one of the scheme showing someone is practicing serve. Isn't s/he holding the racket too high? Of course, that might not be the "fininsh position" anyway. :)

    Good catch there, LB. If you right click and stop the Flash presentation, you can back up to that part and actually see the fellow hitting the shuttle at around mid rib height.

    It also looks like his racquet head is not entirely below his racquet head.
