When the video was first released, many people were got amazed by this clip and claimed this is a invaluable memorable clip of Bruce Lee. Some people are thinking that this clip was recorded before the dead of Bruce Lee and it was real that Bruce Lee can really play table tennis with nun chucks. He can even defeat two opponents at the same time. Even though the producer claimed the footage is real, but it was actually a fake clip.
The whole idea for the clip is an advertisement that being created by JWT Beijing. And it was being used by Nokia as the advertisement to promote their Nokia N96 Limited Edition Bruce Lee cell phone worldwide. The phone was released in 2008.
The person appeared in the video clip is not the actual Bruce Lee. It was someone who is having an outlook of similar to Bruce Lee. He is recruited to shoot for this commercial. And the table tennis ball was also not actually playing but was digitally added in later production.
I have watched this video clip for many times, but every time I see this, I still have a shocking feel on how in tune and in proposition he was with all the actions and the environment matching. Generally, the video clip is just overwhelming and is a good memorable to this big star where many people admired.
Bruce Lee was magnificent and he is still many people idol even he has passed away for many years. Even though this was not the real one, but the whole idea is still very awesome and interesting.
Can Bruce Lee really play ping pong with nun chucks in actual world?
Well, just didn’t think so as there is no one in this world could play table tennis with nun chucks, not even for professional nun chucks master. Those celebrities who leave the world earlier often being apotheosis like they are possessed super power or something that is supersede ordinary people. If Bruce Lee still alive, sure he will yell to these people: “Hey! Don’t make people think like I am a fool!”.
You can watch the clip and judge for yourself how real it is. Bruce Lee play the game almost effortless and the whole playing is really smooth.
Watch the video and it should be credited to JWT Beijing for their amazing Nokia ‘Bruce Lee Ping Pong’ commercial. The advertisement company is actually situated in Shanghai, and the idea is come from the two members of their creative team: Lillie and Rafael.
