‘It was a fluke!’ Magda Szubanski stars in a new UberEats advert with Serena Williams… and reveals one hilarious moment happened completely by accident

Magda Szubanski has starred in a new UberEats advert as her Kath & Kim character, Sharon Strzelecki.

The 58-year-old comedian plays a ball girl who starts pelting balls at Serena and even bounces one straight into her hair.

But Magda revealed on Thursday that the hilarious moment in the advert was simply an accident. 

She said on the Today show: ‘We didn’t even try to get the ball in her hair. It just purely happened by accident and we are going, “Oh my god that’s gold!”‘

Magda admitted it was one of the first balls she’d thrown, adding that she wouldn’t have been able to do it again if she tried.

She continued: ‘It was a fluke and it was one of the first ones and Serena said, “Oh, my hair is like Velcro!”‘ 

In the UberEats advert, Serena walks onto the court and tosses her towel on a chair.

‘There is a lot of expectation on Serena tonight, especially after her awe-inspiring performance in Auckland,’ a voice-over says.

After Magda starts throwing balls and one gets stuck in Serena’s hair, the athlete says: ‘Tonight I will be eating fried cauliflower tacos and jalapeno tamales.’ 

When her order arrives, Magda says: ‘Mrs W, I think you’ll find it’s pronounced jell-a-peenos. Play on.’ 

Serena then asks: ‘Who are you?’
