NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Tiger Woods' marital infidelities and the resulting scandal are drifting quickly into the past -- at least judging by Electronic Arts' (ERTS) decision to cast the golfer in a humorous light in an ad campaign for its latest Tiger Woods PGA Tour video game.
EA Sports, in anticipation of the product's launch on June 8, has released a new Tiger Woods commercial and the first in a series of online videos.
The ads -- which highlight this year's Ryder Cup and carry the titles "Welcome to Team Golf" and "Curling Meets Golf, with Tiger Woods" -- debuted Thursday on a Facebook page created by EA for the video game.
The comic turn for Woods comes after what many considered Tiger's strange and disturbing role in an ad for Nike (NKE - Get Report) in April. This will be Tiger's second major appearance in an ad since his return to professional golf at the Masters. EA Sports said the commercial will appear on various popular sports and gaming websites beginning on June 4. -- Written by Andrea Tse in New York
