It’s common knowledge that Serena Williams is a superhero in the sports world. 

And in a fantastical new campaign for DirecTV’s streaming service, she officially becomes Wonder Woman, battling a shopping mall full of monsters with her weapon of choice—a tennis racquet.

The retro-themed spot, from TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles, formally introduces DirectTV Stream by mashing up the Grand Slam champ with iconic films, highlighting the service’s mix of live and on-demand entertainment.

In the spot, which begins with a viewer calling up a live Williams match, the legendary athlete finds herself unwittingly (and improbably) dropped into an indoor shopping mecca that’s infiltrated by Transformers-like gadgets.
