Serena Williams' Top Spin 4 game commercial deemed too sexy for TV

Serena Williams' sexy Top Spin 4 commercial was rejected - possibly for being too racy.

Serena Williams' sexy Top Spin 4 commercial was rejected - possibly for being too racy.

There's no question that Serena Williams is a good looking woman. But some even think the tennis star is a bit too hot for TV.

At least that's the case for her new ad for Top Spin 4, a tennis game made for WiiPlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

In a commercial lasting less than 60 seconds, Williams – clad in a black leotard and stockings – is deemed "the world's sexiest tennis player" before she faces off against actress Rileah Vanderbilt, who is dressed in a similarly revealing outfit and called "the world's sexiest tennis gamer."

The video is cut with clips from the actual game, as if the two women were playing each other. But combined with grunting sounds that are more commonly heard in the bedroom than on the tennis court, the hotness factor goes up several levels.

"You realize this is a fantasy right?" Williams says at the end.

According to Joystix.com, the commercial was actually rejected by the game's maker, 2K Sports, but Vanderbilt uploaded it herself onto YouTube and tweeted a link to it on Monday.



By Wednesday, she was distancing herself from it, calling an Ad Week blog post on the controversy "sooo inaccurate..."

When the site offered her the chance to explain, she replied, "It's all good. I can't get into it." 

On Monday, Williams herself told her fans to "Stay tuned for a awesomely sexy video I am tweeting later," but, interestingly enough, she hasn't mentioned it since then.

"As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues," 2K Sports said in a statement. "This video is not part of the title's final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized."
