Probably among all the Nike commercials of Tiger Woods, this new Nike commercial involving his dead father Earl Woods is one of the most controversial.
Accordingly, the new Nike commercial is a black and white ad that includes a serious Tiger Woods’ face staring on the camera while his father’s voice Earl Woods, is being played on the background telling him something important which goes:
“Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. Did you learn anything?”
In my own opinion, this new Nike commercial is a way of showing a father’s concern to his son. It looks like that Earl Woods here would like to talk to his son regarding the recent controversies concerning his illicit affairs with several women, in which the most recent is that of Raychel Courdiet. Tiger Woods’ father is asking him if he learned something about it.
The black and white color is used in this new Nike commercial to show that the conversation did not happen on a present time since Earl Woods is already dead.
Some critics say that this new Nike commercial is Tiger Woods’ way of capitalizing with the infidelity issues concerning him. How about you, what do you think of this new Nike commercial by Tiger Woods?
