David Rondel Cambou and Nathalie Melato are Hellohikimori, or HKI. David just got home from a Paris hospital an hour ago after tests. He was sounding pretty drugged up, and he hadnt eaten anything in three days. This should be good.
"Hikikomori" is a modern Japanese trend towards solitude and isolation. Sort of like the anti-Facebook. David and Natalie feel marketing and design is suffering from the same trend, and they're here to send friend requests to all the hermits out there. In this case, they're sharing some doughnuts.
Another great volley, not a dud in the bunch today, The narcotics paid off, this is pretty much exactly what I saw when I had my wisdom teeth out and I was watching Gilligan's Island. HKI has taken up the Twitterista's demands to bring back the duck, and they've worked in a little from every previous volley, yet kept it entirely their own. It's nice to see such a different style in each volley, but I suppose that's what you get when you have ten different players.
That guy on the right looks like one of Pucca's noodle-making uncles, but with doughnuts, and shards of glass or metal.

Congratulations to Mig Reyes, Layer Tennis Season 3 Champion.
Thanks to all the players, commentators and fans who made Season Three of Layer Tennis a big success. And thanks to the crew at Goodby Silverstein & Partners and all the folks at Adobe Creative Suite for making it possible. Watch this space (or sign up for Season Tickets or follow us on Twitter) for news about some special exhibition matches being planned and about Season 4.
Cast your votes on The Championship Match. Both Finalists will receive invitations to play in the post-season tournament for Season Four.
Here's how the voting works. Decide who you'd like to declare as winner and then simply tweet their first name following a hash mark. Either #mig or #noper and, this is important, also include #lyt in that tweet. We'll leave the voting open all weekend and announce our Season Three Champion on Monday.
