Roddick vs. Pong

 

Seen in January during the Australian Open, this American Express ad is back for another round during the US Open. You don’t have to be a tennis fan to appreciate Ogilvy‘s clever combination of live action and animation to show a real life game of Pong being played on the court by Andy Roddick. Further promoting AmEx cards, the ad shows the url stoppong.com which has an 8-bit style, tennis theme Pong game developed by Fuel Games.
