The New Nike Ad w/ Tiger Woods is….Awkward.

April 7, 2010


This is the new 30 second spot Nike is debuting tomorrow during the Masters.  It’s a simple ad where Tiger’s (deceased) father Earl speaks while Tiger stares (awkwardly) at the camera.  I can’t be the only one that wishes that instead of 30 seconds, it was a 20 minute epic of Earl berating him without mercy.  That I could take a break from the Masters for.

(although, recent reports suggest his Dad may have well just given him high fives for 20 minutes)

5 melodramatic press conferences that give Tiger a run for his money

February 19, 2010


Tiger Woods: The ThesbianDon’t let some of these pundits fool you, Frumpsters. Sure, sports naturally lends itself to drama, and the adoring public’s spotlight, for better or worse, typically doesn’t switch off when the lights of the arenas, fields and stadiums that players and coaches occupy in their respective professional lives do, but sometimes people just need to get a grip.

Seriously, we’ve got respected, established journalists out there (who shall remain nameless) shedding tears and using words like “profound” and “deep” in reference to this act Tiger just put on a bit ago.

And, before I get labeled a “hater” or something, let me just say that, before now, I was never particularly fazed by all this Tiger scandal stuff. It was entertaining more than anything, but never completely ruined Tiger’s aura, or whatever, for me.

Now, however, after it became overwhelmingly clear that the most sincere thing at Tiger’s presser was his own level of self absorption (or possibly the look on his mother’s face), he just might be doomed.

But at least he’s not the first to pull a stunt like this, right? I mean, his performance may have been the most Oscar-worthy, sure, but there is precedence, and we highlight a bit of what may have served as inspiration for Tiger here (and after the jump).

We’ve also got the full clip of Tiger’s press conference for those of you that may have missed out, so please do enjoy (regardless of how unfair it all is).
