    It looks pretty cool, kinda flashy in a cheap "crouching tiger, hidden dragon" kind of way.

    At 0:47, it clearly shows the head of the racket the two girls are using. I was just curious, can anyone identify it? I ~almost~ mistook it for a Zelm because of the color scheme, but my Zelm looks different, and much cooler.

    Though they do change rackets once things get "epic," but one is holding a red and black racket, and the other a yellow/orange themed racket.

    Interesting find , It will be interesting to see what they release into the badminton world.

    My idea , will be that if nike joins other big brandsmay join in the competition aswell?

    It's a nikewomen ad. Don't get your hopes up ;) Next thing you'll be tellling me Nike will bring out their martial arts line: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Svvp2GOCKnU

    I did this in a distant past as well ;). Although very shortly as I found the stance very awkward and was already doing jiu-jitsu. 4 friends of mine though are now teachers :cool:.

    :D this is one of them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7bw1BTW6h0 (on the receiving end)

    could've given the sport more credit. for starters, using a feather shuttle and playing on an actual court might help.

    The sounds of hitting the shuttle are so exaggerated at the beginning part. With that kinda sound the shuttle ought to fly further :p
