If you are hoping to see Roger Federer in the above video, you can move on to a different post because the Swiss does not make an appearance in the new Gillette campaign.

Instead, the shaving company paints and picture of Federer on a London grass field and then adds shaving followed by the requisite shave.

It’s a little corny but give Gillette some credit, the picture of Federer came out pretty good. Gillette did something similar with New York Yankee Derek Jeter back in February.

On Facebook, the company posted, “With the World’s biggest grass tennis tournament starting today we’ve created something very special to help support our man Roger Federer. Thank you for all your messages of support last week, we passed them onto Roger and delivered one particular piece of inspiration in spectacular style.”
