Nike premiered its Tiger Woods ad the night before the Masters, and since then, the ad has generated 160+ associated clips, 7.1+ million views, and 15,000+ comments, according to a new report from Visible Measures Corp.More than half of these views stem from “derivatives” of the ad, which include spoofs and parodies like the ones we gathered and created for you here.
According to Visible Measures Corp.’s research, these ads (which made up less than 10% of the total view count after one day) are now the driving force behind Nike’s campaign.
A mashup of the Woods ad and the YouTube hit, David After Dentist, for example, has more than 625,000 views. (Watch below).
While these parody videos don’t get Nike’s specific message across, the viral hits have put Nike and Woods in front of more than 7 million viewers. And if you are in the “any press is good press” school of thought, Nike and Woods really scored with their simple, 30-second ad.
The question is, will it be enough to offset Woods’ disaster at the Masters?
