Please share comments or add new or recent appearances of table tennis in t.v. commercials, films and other media.
Chase Bank Commercial (April 2017)- Stephen Curry and Serena Williams - Curry challenges Williams to play while they're waiting in a "green room". Looks like they have some playing experience (I'm sure Williams has some). Their rackets are blue instead of red/black, not uncommon in the rec game I guess.
Pharmaceutical Drug T.V. Commercials (2015-present) Since I started playing in 2015 I've noticed table tennis has appeared in several t.v. commercials for pharmaceutical drugs. I just noticed a new one this month, but the drug name escapes me. I recall there's a grandfather playing with his grandson in a garage. Another ad within the past year was for one of those glucose lowering medications which I also can't remember the name of.
"Everybody Wants Some" (2016) - Comedy movie about college in the 1980's. Never saw it, but the trailer includes scenes of college rec room table tennis battles
GrubHub Commercial (2016) - Employees play table tennis at office to decide who picks lunch.
Moet & Chandon Commercial (Nov 2015) - Funny t.v. commercial where Roger Federer pretends to be unable to miss table tennis smashes even when the director tells him to miss.
Raymond James Financial Commercial (2015 ?) - Ad for financial advisers. Funny ad where a lady lives to be 100 and is seen doing many unusual vigorous activities, including hang-gliding and playing table tennis at a super high speed. Victor Shi Guang is her opponent :)
XFINITY Commercial (April 2017) Couple goes out for the evening and leave their dog in front of the t.v. watching a table tennis match. The match is a real tournament clip and appears to be in China. The dog is moving it's head back and forth, apparently following the ball.
The woman says "find ping-pong" in XFINITY'S voice search function. The ad's tagline is "Happy Kids Are Awesome" (i.e. the dog is like the woman's kid, and her "kid" looks happy watching table tennis).
