Ping Pong on VEEP

Posted on by TableTennisNation

HBO’s hit comedy VEEP featured ping pong! A few months ago we gave you the heads up that table tennis was coming to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ HBO comedy where she portrays the Vice President. In this particular episode Selena Meyer (Dreyfus) goes to Silicon Valley to raise money for her upcoming Presidential campaign. While in Silicon Valley, she of course has to visit the (fictional) tech startup, Clovis. Clovis, like all great startups features ping pong tables. Throughout the episode, people are playing on the tables (and creating problems by playing during other meetings), but table tennis really moves to the forefront when Vice President Meyer gets hit with a ping pong ball…

HBO has been on a roll with shows (and table tennis) lately, and between Game of Thrones and True Detective actors mentioning ping pong as a way to create on screen chemistry, VEEP featuring table tennis, random appearances on 24/7, and the Entourage movie including ping pong, HBO is definitely becoming the official network of table tennis (we’ll forgive Kenny Powers of Eastbound and Down for talking trash as long as we see some ping pong on the new comedy “Silicon Valley” ASAP).
