Like Father Like Son

Is it just me, or does it seem a bit bizarre that in Nike's new commercial featuring Tiger Woods there is a voice-over of his father, who routinely cheated on Tiger's mother?

It doesn't feel right, does it? The vibe feels disrespectful of his father, somehow.

Disrespectful of his father? No, not really. Tiger learned how to cheat at the knee of his father. Not sure which one was the bigger philanderer.

I realized what bugs me about the commercial. It's one cheat using the voice of his dead cheat of a father to cheat a gullible public. If you think that a shred of sentiment was included in the creation of that spot, you are dangerously naive.

Nike is in full spin control mode. Feelings have no place where money is concerned.
