After watching this video, production company Nowness has me convinced that ping pong is the most intense -- and fashionable -- sport imaginable.
The Nowness Grand Slam video takes table tennis to a whole notha’ level. The action-packed short features talented table tennis champion Sooyeon Lee playing a game against herself. The video was shot in slow motion, so every single move is accentuated and enhanced. Sooyeon Lee was also dressed in crazy couture costumes of vivid colors and styles. All of these costumes were intentionally designed to enhance her movements -- many have tassels that shake and shift with her actions. As if this wasn’t intense enough, the background music in the video is a suspenseful high-action song that sounds like it came right out of a James Bond fight scene.
The Nowness Grand Slam video proves that ping pong deserves respect. Don’t mess with these players, they’re ballsy!
