Tiger Vs. Shaq, Golf-Fu Edition
By Stephanie Wei under Tiger Woods

So this must be how Tiger Woods (re-)strained his left Achilles! Just kidding.

The above video is a promo for EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, which debuts at the end of the month. For a PR-driven marketing tool, it’s quite well done (I guess that’s to be expected — EA seems to do a good job with these teaser promos), and the whole thing is hilarious in an intentionally cheesy way.

The web-only commercial features a “duel” between Tiger “Crimson Cat” and Shaquille “Swinging Giant” O’Neal.

Favorite part? I love it when Shaq refers to Tiger as the “Little Cat.”

Spoiler alert: Tiger beats Shaq.  But the former NBA star is already trash-talking via his Twitter account. On Tuesday afternoon, Shaq tweeted: “You won this battle @TigerWoods, but I’ll return more Shaq-furious than ever.”

Well played, guys.
