Pong, the first commercially popular interactive video game. An icon of the 20th century, so often imitated yet, some claim, never bettered.

Andy Roddick vs. Pong. A nice contrast of the real life and fantasy, of 1970s and 2000s culture. It places Pong into the real world: I will be doing the opposite of this, that is, bringing the real world into Pong, to an extent.

Plasma Pong. A new twist on the Pong theme. It's actually more akin to a game of blow football that utilises the aesthetics of modern technology to bring Pong up to date for the here and now.

An alcoholic drinks ad. Blends football and tennis in a new version of the game. Nice use of animation as well. Doubles Pong?
