Very unusual. I'm a bit surprised that Nike is taking the controversy head on in an ad instead of ignoring it and just focusing on him playing golf. Speaking for myself, this commercial does not increase my desire to buy Nike stuff.

I agree... I think it's time to move past the non-golf issues, a and start advertising for golf again...

 

This ad gives me no desire to buy anything...

Very strange to watch with the sound off.

Would have liked the voiceover to say "You screwed up son, now go and make it right." Little nod from Tiger and we can get back to golf.

That's exactly right....and the direction Tiger needs to embrace. We all (myself included) have our failings and setbacks....it's how we respond to those that reveals our character, or lack thereof.

True, very true. but we have to give Tiger some time. atleast from what it looks like so far the fans seem to be pulling for him now.... alot more then a month ago. Everyone makes mistakes,you have to learn and improve. Not just keep repeating them.Only time will tell if Tiger has truly changed!

 

The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing. ~John Powell

I think that was his actual voice Dave. Unfortunately, the man isn't with us anymore so reading from a script isn't an option...

 

With that said, that was a pretty bizarre spot.

Yeah, I know it was clips from his dad. Very surreal. I don't see this running a bunch. I think that people will be uncomfortable and turned off.

It's a very short lived one, this weekend only I assume. I like that Nike didn't just pick up with Tiger like nothing happened. They have a billion dollar image to work on. I think it's a good start, but there is more to be done.

I didn't think I could be more turned off but I am.

 

Tim Dahlberg said it best when he described it as "...flat out nauseating...".

 

A new Tiger? Nah. Just a new script.

 

You can't fool all of the people all of the time but you sure can fool a lot of them.

If Tiger wins the Masters, and I'm the first one to admit that he's on my fantasy golf team this week, Webster will have to re-define the meaning of the word "kharma."
