The road to redemption for golfer Tiger Woods has already included a tearful press conference and a stint in rehab. But a new TV commercial for sponsor Nike uses Woods's relationship with his deceased father to drive home the message that he's a changed man.
The black-and-white 30-second spot features an imagined conversation between father and son. The golfer appears sombre and chastened, with the elder Woods speaking about taking responsibility.
But does this latest attempt at rebuilding Tiger's tattered reputation go too far? Is the use of his father's memory a career-saving move or an awkward last-ditch effort at salvation?
Watch the ad below and let us know what you think.
