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. 

Here's one for the arthritis drug Humira. Man plays with a racket in both hands.




Here's another pharmaceutical drug call Invokana. Grandfather and grandson playing in garage.





"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 :)

Again, there is a lot of Japan animations /cartoons related to the game.
I will inform you more as I get those from my memory.

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).
