Usually, commercials don’t merit a post, but this new Nike ad featuring Tiger Woods and his heir apparent, Rory McIlroy is pretty great. The two of them are on the driving range when they start smack talking each other over shots at the pin, which leads to shots in the cup, which leads to shots in all kinds of cups all over the place.
It’s really well done, with pretty clever lines thrown in. I think my favorite when Rory says he’s just ‘trying to keep up with the old guy, you know’ and Tiger replies, ‘dude, is that your real hair?’
If I had to guess, I’d say the people behind the commercial probably had this Larry Bird and Michael Jordan McDonald’s ad from 1993 in mind when they created this one.
