A few words from dad…

Today is the first day of the competitive rounds for the 2010 Masters Golf Tournament. This event was no doubt accompanied by additional Tiger Woods propaganda.  It was the debut of Woods’ new Nike commercial featuring the voice of Earl Woods, his deceased father, who comes back to offer some enlightening words of wisdom.  A little over the top? I think so.

  1. I agree it is over the top and inappropriate, and almost offensive to use Tiger’s dead dad to promote his return to golf. I am surprised his representatives went for this. On the other hand, it gets people talking about the ad rather than his mistresses. Everything Nike does is very calculating, so I am sure they thought about this one long and hard.
