Jesus Needs New PR

New Nike commercial brings Tiger’s father back from the grave…

Do you think the above commercial is…

Brilliant PR?

Tacky sensationalism?

Or par for the course?

(In other words… what do you think?)

All I know is that I’m extremely confused with that commercial.

Oh, it’s brilliant marketing. But, if you look at how controlled Tiger has always been with his marketing image, it may show that he’s serious by using his Nike ties to open up. (Or, it may just give that impression. Time will tell.)

I can’t say if it’s brilliant or tacky, because I have no idea where it’s going. If you didn’t tell me it was his dad, I would have never known.

I wouldn’t have known it was pops either.

Seems emo and egocentric. What were “you” thinking, feeling? What did “you” learn? Combo those two factors for me and it won’t just be a fail, it will be a resounding “What the hell . . .?”

I don’t know why any of this was ANY one’s business to begin with. (except those directly affected) but yes the ad is brilliant

Par for the course…haha, I like that.

It could be cheesy, it could be good.
I don’t know. I think it really just comes down to how Tiger takes it. In some senses it screams “well I have learned not to get caught, now go and buy some Nike stuff” but I also see that Tiger misses his dad and wants to learn from his mistake.

Slightly tacky and brilliant. It’s got everyone talking and that’s what PR is all about.
