Roger Federer goes all out with a William Tellesque trick shot by serving a tennis ball and knocking a cup off the head of a film crew member while filming a Gillette commercial in Switzerland.

 

Considering a Federer serve has been clocked at more than 150 mph, the crew member is putting a lot trust in the six time Wimbledon Champion.

 

The video has gone viral garnering more than 1 million views so far today and giving Gillette some free advertising.

Is it real or is it fake? That’s the question on everyone’s mind. 

 

Fake or not the viral video is generating a lot of buzz for Gillette.

 

“All we’ll say at the moment is we’ll leave the ‘real or fake’ debate up to the viewers, but the evidence is there to see,” a Gillette spokesperson said in an interview with Mashable. “Roger’s skill and ability is incredible (That’s why he’s a Gillete ambassador!) so of course it was filmed in one take during a shoot for Gillette Fusion’s partnership with the British Skin Foundation.”
