Unbelievably, Nike chose not to drop Tiger Woods when the recent revelations over his extra-marital bedroom activities became public knowledge. In fact, it’s using it to sell sportswear!
You’ve likely already seen the original, which has Tiger’s dead father Earl talking to him. But this is one of the many spoofs now available on YouTube, the one I enjoyed watching the most.
It features a Tiger lookalike (if you squint a little) being told off by his father. You see, Earl didn’t really want his disembodied voice used on the commercial, and he also wants Tiger to stop looking like a constipated sex pest.
It amazes me why Nike and Tiger chose an advert that could so easily be spoofed. I guess it’s good for Nike, getting their name mentioned numerous times, but for Tiger? Not so much, because we’re all laughing at him.
