Tiger's shame in Nike's name

Tiger Woods Nike Commercial
OK, I've thought about it all day because I didn't want to post a knee-jerk reaction.  But, here it is: I hate it.  It's creepsville, it's exploitive, it's unprincipled and it's shameful - on Nike's part as well as Tiger's.  How low must we go in this whole mess?

Interesting. When I clicked on the video it said it had been removed by the user. Apparently someone came to their senses.

Interesting, indeed. Especially since the embed code was provided by CBS. Hmmmmmm.

I replaced the removed video with a link to Nike's site. They have not, apparently, come to their senses. 'Just wanting more hits.

I find the commercial creepy. I find Tiger creepy. Read the article on him in this month's Vanity Fair, for further creepage.

I don't feel bad for Tiger, but I know this has really turned his life upside down. He's going to lose everything, not to mention his mental game will be screwed up forever. He'll never go back to what he was. I think it's a good example to set for the rest of the world.
