Has anyone seen the Matrix style Tennis LaCoste video?

My question is, how realistic do you think this video is of the future of tennis?

It's stupid.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

I like the advert, but I don't think it's realistic. Bet then, what do I know? In the 70s they thought the idea of a computer was impossible I guess.

 ..-)

Were we that backward in the 70's? I remember watching Twilight Zone episodes and movies from the 50's and 60's) that featured computers.
I think it's stupid becuase it's all style an no substance. It's a complete waste.
It's like, just after the Matrix, the Charlies Angels movie came out. They found themselves chasing a villan down into an alley. The three Angels all ran down the ally after him, one up the left wall, one down the center, and one up the right wall. Why? Because they could.

I think the chances of having rolling advertisements on the back of shoes is possible, great for the TV camera.  I also like the concept of a racket that has strings made of some type of magnetic field.  Instead of getting my racket restrung I would just pop in new batteries.  I believe with every far out concept their are a few realistic possibilities.
