Tiger Woods: Father's words in Nike ad originally referred to Tiger's mother

Posted on

The Earl Woods voiceover used in Tiger Woods’ new Nike commercial actually came from a 2004 documentary, and in the original context he wasn’t speaking to Tiger, but making a comparison of himself to Kultida “Tida” Woods, Earl’s wife and Tiger’s mother. His full quote: “Authoritarian. Yeah, Tida is very authoritative. She is very definitive. ‘Yes’ and ‘No.’ I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what you’re thinking was, I want to find out what your feelings are and did you learn anything?” [via ABC News]

You can watch the video after the jump. Does this change your impression of the ad?
