Tiger Woods’ Father Appears in Controversial Nike Ad

Today the voice Tiger Woods‘ father, the late Earl Woods, appeared in that new and controversial Nike ad. Visit AgencySpy for more details about the campaign.

What do you think? In publishing terms, there was a history of fatherly commentary running through the relationship between Woods and his son. Earl wrote three books about raising his famous son–including Start Something: You Can Make a Difference.

Here’s an excerpt from that book: “Tiger had learned one of the most important lessons you can learn in life: You have to share and care for others. He didn’t have much to offer back then, but he knew that whatever he had, it was more than those starving children could ever dream of. He saw people in need, realized that he had the power to help, and wanted to make a difference. This book is for you and about you, to help you discover your own power and use it to make a difference.”
