No.

It was a commercial created in 2005 by Nokia for a limited edition Bruce Lee cell phone. The award-winning commercial was produced by JWT Shanghai, and was created to look as if it were filmed in the late 60s or early 70s. They used a Bruce Lee lookalike. The men playing ping pong mimicked the motions of an actual game, but the ball was inserted digitally after the fact. At first we see “Lee” beating a single opponent, and then taking on two opponents at the same time. There is also video of “Lee” lighting a cigarette – with his nunchucks - as it dangles from another man’s mouth.

It’s interesting to note that the commercial only showed the phone for a few seconds.

Here are the credits as given in an interview, found here.
