Because we didn’t get around to posting it earlier in the week…
Did they actually film it together? Stilted banter and sleight-of-lens would suggest not.
It is a bit awkward, but I think this is fun commercial – shades of the old “Magic vs. Bird” Converse ads from 80s and even the “Jordan vs. Bird” McDonalds ads from the 90s. (Aside: If you can find a video of Converse ad on YouTube, you definitely have to watch it. Let’s just stay that the fashion styles in that ad have not aged well…)
Whether it sells more Nike clubs is another matter. Part of me suspects it will depend on how Rory performs on the course rather than on the range. (After watching him flub a few pitch shots in Abu Dhabi yesterday, I suspect McIlroy would like his old Vokeys back.)
They did not film it together. So late on this one Wei.
those greens looked like the winter greens i play on….really? for a nike commercial…and was that Kevin Klein?
