Tiger's new commercial an exploitative disgrace

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Just saw the new Tiger Woods Nike commercial and almost threw up.

Just in case you haven't seen it, Woods' father does a voiceover as the camera pans in on Woods' face. Woods says nothing, it's just his father talking. Woods stares unblinking at the camera as his father speaks.

His father, of course, is dead.

Now, there's bad taste, and then there's using your dead father to move product.

Throughout this entire scandal, I've defended Woods (somewhat) from all the hypocrites who chastise Woods for his infidelity, while many of them are bagging their own women on the side. I also thought Woods' apology tour was sincere.

Then came this disgusting commercial.

He lost me and he likely lost the few defenders he had.

Woods needs to keep a low profile and play golf. He doesn't need to use his dead pops to sell more golf clubs.

Bravo! This is the only remarks that show objectivity and maturity. The rests are nothing but pure rubbish and infantile rumblings.

Tiger's new commercial is genius

At every level.  The add was selling Tiger, but was apologetic, and forward looking.  I don't support Nike product, but this was as tasteful an apology as one could concieve.  Cutting-edge, emotional, real, relevant and relational.  Moving forward, I wish Tiger the best.

:  I think you miss the point.  
Have you completely forgotten the elementary school playground?
If it's something I don't like to see:
  • "You can't DOO that !!"

If it's something I don't want to hear:
  • "You can't  SAAY  that !!"
