Sappy FedEx Cup commercial lacks machismo
“Who will be the first to kiss her?” asks the PGA Tour about it’s newly created FedEx Tiffany-designed Cup.
Did Tim Finchem really “okay” this one or was he in cahoots with Carolyn Bivens to create something syrupy for the LPGA Tour? Perhaps they swapped commercials?
Come on guys, toughen up. You’re playing for $10 million dollars, not auditioning for one of Shakespeare’s comedies.
“Drink to me only with thine eyes and I will pledge with mine", croons Dean Wilson.
“Other men have seen angels, but I have seen thee, thou art enough", warbles Sean O’Hair.
“I’d fly to the moon and back if she’d be my baby” shouts Aaron Baddeley, probably the best actor in the bunch.
Where’s the beef, guys? Valentine’s Day is over!

Now, on to the commercial...everything that mainstream America does is hokey...it's never edgy enough to satisfy all of us...edgy means that the young grudgingly admit that it is kind of stoke-worthy, while the middle and old hearken back to halcyon days of rebellion. The FedEx Cup is wax and cheese all around...however, check back with me in August, when I may be singing a different tune.
The top prizes are the majors.
Gee, I wonder if Tiger Woods could pull off a commercial like this?
