Tiger Woods' Newest Gatorade Commercial Sure To Induce Flashbacks

Thursday, April 09, 2009


ESPN aired a new (or at least I think it's new) Gatorade commercial featuring Tiger Woods, but instead of Woods playing on the moon, he was magically transformed into a cartoon kid in the woods. Not only that, but they even added in Tiger's dad, Earl Woods, as a talking bear giving advice to the young Tiger. Here's the clip....



Kind of trippy but still pretty darn good. I like the voice-over work by Van Pelt, and I definitely could use a swim in the "Focus Falls".

For some reason, I want to see the SNL sketch of Tracy Morgan and Tim Meadows as Earl and Tiger again.

Has AA disliked a single commercial in the history of this blog? I'm sure there are probably at least a few, but it seems like he enjoys 99.9-percent of them.

I suspect a number of blogs have been paid off recently to post and promote gatorade commercials. Regardless its pretty lame to see a media blogger, intentionally or not, shilling for products. These sports commercials are my least favorite posts here by bar.

I don't mind them at all. It's a chance to give reactions on the sports commercials- they are part of the sports media world also.

And why would you share a shitty commercial?

Anyways... This was ok. It was like a mix between Jungle Book and Willy Wonka or something.

Really? First - it's not Earl Jones, it's Samuel L. Jackson - CLEARLY! Second, this is based on the Jungle Book and I think it's cute. Maybe that means they are targeting boring people over 35 who actually remember the movie, but c'mon people PAY ATTENTION. Plus, I thought it was cute. Not the greatest commercial ever, but cute.
