I don’t know if you’ll have seen the Tiger Woods commercial, but it’s interesting. If you haven’t seen it, watch it here.
So, the controversy surrounding the commercial is that Tiger Woods deceased father’s voice is heard in the background, while Tiger stairs blankly at the camera. When I first saw the commercial I was creeped out. To hear a dead guy talk to you is scary. It reminded me of the first time I saw the ring. I thought my faucet was going to turn on, and Tiger Woods would walk out of the screen, and twist my mouth sideways.
Once I finished the commercial my feeling was uneasy. I don’t like the idea of using his father. The man is not here, so we can’t say whether he approves. However, it’s Tiger’s father, so if Tiger is okay with it I have no problem with it. I’m not going to legislate morality. It’s not my job. I’ll leave that to Bill Payne, Glen Beck, and people like them. You know the type of people that look respectable until they open their mouth. Then you realize they’re losers. I rather you have to work to find out if I am.
What I will say is the commercial is brilliant. The purpose of a commercial is to be memorable, and everyone remembers it. That’s why Geico keeps doing those lame cavemen commercials. People remember that stuff. Unfortunately for them I also remember when they tried to turn it into a T.V. show. I think it’s fair to say, “Bad Move Geico.” I’d rather watch Frank T.V. reruns (that’s a lie. I would watch the cavemen show. The Caliendo experiment was a disaster. Note to T.V. executives: impressions don’t work for a half hour show.
So if Tiger likes it, I love it, except for the Porn Star, and the other 15 women.
