What Do You Think About Tiger's New Nike Ad?

(Tiger Woods Nike ad article updated with details on latest spoofs of new Nike Tiger ad.)
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Last week, Nike (NKE) released a new Tiger Woods ad, narrated with his late father's voice.

By this week, the ad has already sparked considerable controversy -- not to mention rampant parody.

In the ad, the camera focuses on Tiger, who's standing, wearing a Nike vest and Nike cap. The camera slowly pans to Tiger, who remains silent throughout the ad. Then comes the sound of his late father Earl's voice.

Some are calling the ad creepy and bizarre, and others ... well, pretty much everyone is calling the ad creepy and bizarre. Watch it below, and judge for yourself.

Nike's New Tiger Woods Ad

It has not taken long for Tiger Wood's new Nike to turn to fodder for the likes of Saturday Night Live. Indeed, the SNL spot debuted on Saturday night, featuring cast member Kenan Thompson playing Tiger and wearing a Nike hat and Nike vest. Like Tiger in the actual commercial, he remains silent, with camera panning in, as his father's voice begins to speak in the also roughly 30-second video.

But the spoofs and jokes are clearly not ending there.
