it`s faked -- 80% certain -- if you can follow the arch of the ball when they do the normal "groundstroke" swings the ball slows down like it was a rock right before it reaches the other guy. plus, they seem to be hitting the ball near the handles of their bats all the time and with decent aim, a feat which i cant fathom as even near possible. they edited the ball glimpses and the hitting sounds in and worked with a choreographed script. the only real ball was the one the guy hit at the beginning.

And THAT ladies and gentlemen is my kick ass theory

yeah hitting a ball with a baseball is as easy , you just dont always know where the ball is going. so i`d say its shopped.

"It`s a kellog`s commercial, and I`m pretty freaking sure they have enough money to put together a professionally edited commercial."

No need for big money to pull this off, we do these kinds of edits as exercices in school. Look After Effects up... pretty much anyone with a decent computer could do it.

I still find the idea to be cool and the result is relatively fun to watch!

Christ, I cant even believe we`re having the discussion of whether this is real or not. Of course it isn`t. It`s a kellog`s commercial, and I`m pretty freaking sure they have enough money to put together a professionally edited commercial. And for those of you who think that its impossible to edit vid`s... when was the last time you went to the movies???? wow... gullllllible

I was expecting better. Seeing that the ball never touch seems opposite to what tenis is. But I don`t really know tenis.

my friend and i actually started playing this a few years ago when we were playing tennis in P.E.

we found a tennis ball at her house but no racket so we played with baseball bats. it`s really fun when you have bad hand eye coordination!

Anyone who thinks that "your" and "you`re" are interchangeable deserves to be shot in the testicles.

ok, wow, but duh? is is possible to edit vids, and if u look @ the ball, most of the time it doesnt look right....like its going too slow or its curving a weird way. watch the ball. i personally think this is edited, even tho i might be wrong.

"Gotta jump in and say that a wrong use of "you`re" does not constitute retardation"

No, but it certainly doesn`t qualify you to call someone else retarded.

You just spelled "you`re" wrong, and you`re calling SOMEONE ELSE retarded? Quit skipping English to play on IAB."


Gotta jump in and say that a wrong use of "you`re" does not constitute retardation, but, the use of "shopped" does.

has to be fake or not a baseball/tennis ball since these guys are swinging away, not lightly hitting it, and yet the ball hardly goes anywhere.

Sure it`s not real, just look at the lack of ball shadow. Though I am certain it could be done.
Anyway reminds me of a game there was on the internet where you hit a baseball back and forward trying to hit it passed the other person.

its a commercial and its fake. atleast, they definetly are not using a baseball. this is just like the lebron james powerade commercial where he made like 5 full court shots.

^except he did make 5 shots. Hes big and black and has a hummer. Everyone knows guys who fit that criteria are exceptionally gifted at basketball, therefore can make 7 full court shots in a row

I bet they use the same technique as in Forrest Gump and the upcoming Balls of Fury movies, except they fake the baseball instead of ping-pong ball.

xero is right, you can`t edit that. I would know. This is completely real, and just like anything it just takes some practice.

The problem is that the ball would split faster than a base ball.

It might have been edited to make all the hits seem in order, but I really highly doubt that. It must have taken a lot of time to do all that honestly.

A bat is just as good - just more challenging.
