Origin

On April 7th of 2010, the company Nike released an ad in which Tiger Woods simply stares into a camera while audio of his father--Earl Woods--asking questions is playing in the background. The advertisement was later cited to be a shameful and exploitative use of his late father’s voice. However, it was later discovered that his father’s questions were not even directed towards Tiger originally- it was actually taken from an ABC interview with him in 2004, and the “Tiger” at the beginning of the advertisement is actually supposed to be his wife’s name, Kutilda (Source).
