The Olympic tennis final took place on a giant green screen. The internet noticed

Yesterday, Great Britain’s Andy Murray and Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro matched up in a four-hour marathon of an Olympic final tennis match. The epic session also happened to take place on a court that looked like a giant green screen.

It didn’t take the internet long to notice.

These days, you don’t even need expensive video editing software to edit out a specific color — typically chromakey green — and drop in whatever background you want. You can do it in free inclusions for your existing operating system, like Windows Movie Maker or iMovie.

Or, you could fire up that pirated version of Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro.

It doesn’t matter how we get there, we’re all going to the same place.

Well, except for these two tennis stars. They seem to be going somewhere else entirely.

If you want to give it a try yourself, link us to what you come up with.
