Amazing trick shot by Roger Federer

Roger Federer is probably the best in the game right now.
Game of TENNIS btw for those of you who only watch the big 4 (football, hockey, baseball & basketball)
Ahh whatever...So Roger Federer was filming a Gilette commercial recently and im sure whatever the basis of that commercial was will look got on TV and all that junk. But its what went down behind the scenes thats got all the internet a buzz.
If you listen carefully to the conversation between Roger (the guy in the suit) and some other guy (a stage manager maybe?) he talks about some 'trick shot' that everyone seems to ask him (Roger) to do...and then proceeds to do it.
Without giving EVERYTHING away and leaving some of the element of surprise left...i'll just let you watch the video NOW until i continue with its analysis...
AMAZING TRICK SHOT BY ROGER FEDERER
Yea...pretty badass right?
But...what i wanna know is...is it real?
The first couple times i watched it i was like "WOW THATS CRAZY" then it started to dawn on me...this isnt the FIRST time a video went viral starring an athelete doing some sort of amazing feat for attention to a product (remember the whole 'Kobe Bryant jumping over a speeding Aston Martin' hoax?)
So the more i watch it the more i wonder if the whole INTENT was for it to be fake and appear 'behind the scenes'. I mean if THIS part of the video (the outtakes) has already leaked then wheres the actual ad or tv commercial? Did they ever shoot one to begin with or did they want us to THINK they did so we would all buy into this 'trick shot' as being real and not staged.
Youtube Conspiracy Theorist right here is me!
There's even another Youtube video that surfaced that shows the shot in 'slow motion' as 'proof that its real'. You can judge for yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd3xBu1kycA
Either way, curious to know your thoughts on this. I for one, would like to think that trick shot can be done with such ease by the likes of the greatest in the game: Roger Federer. Maybe this whole 'behind the scenes' fakeness took a bunch of different 'takes' to get the shot right?
Either way i dont wanna think its special effects or anything of the sort.
So until we hear the good word. Im crossing my fingers that its real.
What side are YOU on?
