Tiger Woods Nike Ad Featuring Lecture From His Dead Father Unveiled on Eve of Masters

Sports giant Nike aired an ad today that even has us scratching our heads wondering "is there no shame."

The black-and-white ad shows a sullen-looking Tiger standing on a golf course with the voice of his dead father speaking to him.

"Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. And did you learn anything," Earl Woods' posthumous voice is heard saying as Tiger stands silently -- making his best sad face.
