ADS: Unlike Others, Nike Treats Tiger Woods With Class
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Most of y’all know that I’m hella defensive about the Tiger Woods situation.
What’s done is done. Yeah Tiger effed up, but the lack of respect the man is being shown is downright sad. Michael Vick got more respect for killing dogs. And don’t even get me started about the girls he hooked up with crying on TV for their 15 seconds of fame.
But what’s done is done. Tiger is back on the golf course at the Masters in Augusta where he’s at a respectable 4 under par. But with Tiger back in the limelight for stuff we should care about, the question arose, essentially, how are his advertisers going to re-introduce him into the world?
Even though advertisers like Gatorade and Accenture punked out on my boy, Nike stayed with him. And with the ad below (the voice is of his deceased father), Tiger is re-introduced with class. Check it:
