So, anyone else think these newly released TMAG driver commercials with the face paint is an absolute joke?

I mean...c'mon man. It's like a bad trailer for Braveheart. I almost expect them to scream "FREEDOM!" at the end and run out in kilts.

What's ridiculous is neon colored flat bill hats and matching shoes and pants, oh and now you can hit a driver that looks like a bag of skettels.

Just saw it for the first time about 20 mins ago. I actually laughed out loud at it. I prefer a driver that doesn't look like my nephew finger painted all over it. To each their own.

As  bad or silly as this ad appears to be, you guys are talking about it. It made an impression. And soon you will warm to the idea of a driver with graphics laden crowns. And the rest of the OEMs will follow at a discrete distance, awaiting the outcome. People will buy. It's new  and it looks different. Many of you who are laughing at it today will be singing it's praises in the very near future. Just like you have with every new product that TM sends to market.

I've said it before, but I didn't mind the white crowns when they were released. That being said...

I'll streak the 18th in Augusta before I bag one of these coloring books :) You might be right about the majority of golfers, but personally, I won't.

I will say, that seeing one finally in person, the graphics are much lighter than all the pictures and ads suggest. So, I understand better when superfan Caesar :) says he didn't notice them once he addressed the ball. I still wouldn't hit it though.

thats funny and i think it'll get worse before it gets better with all the bright colors, graphics on the crown, etc.

Don't get me wrong, I personally like the bright colored outfits and different colored drivers (really looking forward to the Nike Covert).  I just think golf companies are marketing themselves more to the masses than the 1% of us here.  I look at some of my buddies who play causally (a few times a year) and they love the white drivers and flat billed hats.  They all believe the hype of the longer/straighter clubs and I think thats where most golf companies are going.

Some companies are more extreme than others but let's face it, TM does a great job selling drivers

When R11 came out there was the "white out" for one day in tourney where all staffers wore all white.  This year they'll do a "paint out".

As  bad or silly as this ad appears to be, you guys are talking about it. It made an impression. And soon you will warm to the idea of a driver with graphics laden crowns. And the rest of the OEMs will follow at a discrete distance, awaiting the outcome. People will buy. It's new  and it looks different. Many of you who are laughing at it today will be singing it's praises in the very near future. Just like you have with every new product that TM sends to market.
bwahaha. I never understood this reverse excuse psychology.

After swing that how can you not talk about it? Good or bad ill let you decide.
