As far as the clip, I think it's real. I have a good friend he was an old regional regional champion from Indonesia. While he didn't show me like the way Lin Dan did it on the video, he can hit or smash the shuttle and drop it pretty much within one square foot area where he wants it. Especially when doing it at his pleasure (not while during the game when the shuttle are moving much faster). He's not even at the level of Lin Dan, Taufik Hidayat, or Sony Dwi Kuncoro.

I am 200% sure it is an advertisement. Look at how Li Ning's equipment is used, the bag, the racket, the shoes and even the court mat.
Note how the bird slowed down before dropping into the tube, fx apparently.

The video could be 'edited' because it is quite impossible to put the shuttle into such a long and narrow tube. However, this precision hitting was actually practised by Tang Xianhu and his team mates, although they used a shorter but wider can instead of a long tube for hitting shots towards the opposite backline and then dropping into the can.

there seems to be a ghost at the farthest court, on the left hand side.

I really think this video is only a commercial. It can not be real!!At the beginning, LD couldn't throw the shuttle into a relatively close tube. Then, this LiNing guy came and gave LD a LiNing racquet. Suddenly, with that LiNing racquet, he could hit shuttles into a farther tube even when he's doing trick shots. The racquet made a huge huge difference.
However, videos like this are always fun to watch.

It's just a viral video made by Li Ning.
By now, this marketing method is old hat.

I have a good way to beat LinDan when he use his Li-Ning racket...
Opponents should put an empty shuttle tube outside the court. This way, all of LD's clears and lifts will go into that tube and his smashes will hit the tube. To increase the margin of error, the tube must be place slightly further away from the court but near enough to attract LD's shots. Users of this tactic should also be warned of possible interference from the service judge's empty shuttle tubes.
Whether LCW will be as accurate using a Li-ning racket remains to be seen. He's not switching to Li-ning so it may be a moot point.

lol the smash is real i think. the one he kicked that missed the tube is real. others im not so sure. looked like he may have hit them into the light area on the screen then computer engineered to fall in the tube. sounds were so similar hahahahahaha

well....no sports manufacture can monopoly the market...look at Adidas even though they're the offical sponsors to World Cup & Champions Leauge not every team they can sponsors .......Spain, Germany, France & Argentina are some of the best teams (football) but why can't they sponsors Italy , England or Ivory Coast ???talk about money Man City was quite loaded recently but why they can only sign Robinho so far ?? i admire thier ambitions of trying to lure Messi, Torres, Terry but these players knows what best for them........
