Voltarol Tennis Advert: New Balls Please!

voltarol tennis advert

Very little to say about this Voltarol tennis advert, featuring a Stupid Dad being beaten at tennis by his lithe and pain-free wife, like the loser he is.

Very little, that is, apart from the last few seconds featuring a bizarre crash zoom on the sweaty chump's face, along with a painfully gasped "New balls please!" that seems to imply some sort of testicular torsion.

The fact that it brings back some welcome 80s sitcom-style daftness, mixed with a healthy dose of cackhandedness, is more than welcome.

Sounds like our tennis husband could do with some bollock gel. New balls please!
