Taylormade Strikes Again, This Time With Puppets….Yes, Fucking Puppets

The Speed Police, They Live Inside Of My Head

The ink on my recent post dispelling Taylormade Golf’s Loft Up campaign wasn’t even dry before TMG decided to air their newest commercial, the Speed Police Stakeout. This is the same company that has already aggressively advertised their Jet Speed line with Paulina Gretzky, put pros in war paint last year, and also brought Rocketballz-ier to the masses. They have no floor, no ceiling, and no shame. I’m sure you’ve seen it because you probably follow the same golf gurus on Twitter that I do, and they’re all discussing it. If not, take a deep breath, then soak it all in with a click below.

Does the ad grab your attention? Yes. Is it funny? Ab-so-fucking-lutely. Whomever came up with that shit captured the characteristics of Justin Rose, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia, and Dustin Johnson all in 30 seconds by using puppets. I can’t decide what my favorite part is, Jason Day eating ‘veggibite’ or Sergio whining like a little bitch. The hill billy accent for DJ was a nice touch too. For entertainment purposes only it is brilliant, but how is that supposed to sell you a JetSpeed driver or fairway metal that isn’t actually shown in the spot?

Perhaps that wasn’t their mission. If they merely wanted to be talked about, noticed, and kick start a line of new clubs by getting their name out they surely succeeded. We’ll have to wait and see what the follow up to it is. Remember, the Paulina ad preceded it. If the puppet show was only a one of, my tot is likely their target market instead of me.

With all four speed cops in the field this week at the Match Play, I’m a little curious why the puppets weren’t turned into head covers for a Jet Speed club in each of their doppelganger’s bags.

    All time low! Dumbest commercial ever. Only thing worst would be full length of Sergio showing his constant “woody”!. Man needs to wear underwear under those white pants.
