"Earl and Tiger" Nike Ad Parody: The Risks of VD from Adam Cohen on Vimeo.
UPDATE 3: My video can be viewed here now. Also, check out several others at Marcus Leshock's site. Marcus, thank you for backing me up, I'll let you know when things are resolved.
UPDATE 2: The Huffington Post has selected my "Risks of Venereal Diseases" video for their article as well! YouTube, get your act together and lift the ban on my parody!
UPDATE 1: YouTube has followed Nike's marching orders and taken down the Venereal Diseases Parody video below. They claim the video infringes their Tiger Woods ad's copyright. This is not the case as my video falls within the Fair Use exception for parody. I am not offering the video for any commercial purposes either. Anyway, I have filed my counter-notice and await their reply. (I've been through this before...)
Off topic for this blog, but today Nike released an ad featuring Tiger Woods standing silently as the voiceover of his dead father speaks to him about learning from his mistakes, etc. It's exploitative and crass. So, I decided it was only proper that I do a parody of the ad, this discussing the various risks of venereal diseases:
As for the original ad itself, you can find it, along with a very well-written take on the controversy, at The Colonel's blog.
