Play Golf America

Is it me or do the Play Golf America commercials suck? Not only do I think the commercials suck, the whole campaign sucks and the Play Golf America website also sucks.

Here's an article about Play Golf America and the $12 million ad budget used to promote golf. The biggest mistake of this campaign is the people they use to promote golf. Why in the hell would I equate playing golf with Mia Hamm as a spokesperson? She makes me want to kick a soccer ball, or Nomar's head, but Mia definitely does not motivate me to want to play golf. None of the 'celebrities' used in this campaign make me think of golf for that matter.

I'm not saying I don't think it's a good idea to promote golf. I just think this campaign was a waste of money. The PGA of America, who paid for this silly campaign, headquarters is about one mile away from my office. I could have easily come up with a much better campaign that would actually get golfers on the golf course. Hey PGA, if you need some help, send me an email.

Way stupid campaign. If people are not interested in golfing, this aint gonna change that. They make it sound like voting or jury duty - a civic responsibility.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Hi NoThreePutts, I came across your site while doing a search on singers, popular female sigers, dancers, actresses and models. Though you don't have exactly what I was searching for it still provided quite an interested read. Thanks and keep up the good work!
