Hold the Tiger!

Parodies of the new Nike ad featuring Tiger Woods have begun trickling in to Youtube.

If you haven’t seen the commercial yet, it’s a black and white spot featuring Woods staring in to the camera as a voiceover from the golfer’s late father, Earl, in the role of a Zombie apparently- asks Tiger to explain his choices and his thinking.Ah, if the dead could talk we’d all have a lot to answer for.

Given the simplicity of the ad, it’s about as perfect a template for parody as it gets. All a jokester needs to do is replace the audio.

One parody features a voicemail Tiger left with one of his mistresses asking her to take her name off her phone in case his wife calls. Another features a Tom Cruise speech he gives to men in the movie Magnolia.

Deadspin.com has a roundup of some of the best parodies from around the internet.
