Tiger Ads Pulled from Prime Time

from www.chattahbox.com – The Tiger Woods tawdry sex scandal is moving into the extremely low rent district. Initial reports of an alleged affair with New York party hostess Rachel Uchitel, quickly moved to affairs with a number of VIP cocktail servers and then dived into the gutter with a Perkins pancake house waitress and at least two porn stars. Perhaps the porno actresses proved too much for Tiger’s sponsors. Yesterday Pepisco Inc. announced plans to drop its Gatorade Tiger Focus drink. And Tiger’s other ads have suddenly disappeared.

Or maybe it was the sleazy details provided to the British press by Mindy Lawton, the pancake waitress. She revealed such gems, as “He wanted to spank me and loved pulling my hair.” Lawton also said that Tiger was “well endowed” and liked it “quite rough.”

Pepsico said its plans to discontinue the Gatorade drink endorsed by Tiger, was made months before his car accident and allegations of multiple extramarital affairs. But Pepsico’s decision may prove a harbinger for the continuation of Tiger’s remaining deals with such sponsors, as Nike, Gillette Tag Heuer and video game maker Electronic Arts.

For now, Tiger’s corporate sponsors are sticking with him. But behind the scenes decisions seemed to have been made to stop airing Tiger’s spots for the time being, on primetime television stations and at least 19 cable channels. Wood’s advertisements were noticeably absent from the primetime coverage of his Chevron World Challenge golf tournament.

The Nielsen Company confirmed that the beleaguered Woods was last seen in a prime-time ad on Nov. 29 in a 30-second spot for Gillette.

Meanwhile, a second porn actress has been linked to Woods. Siwik-Daniels, who performs under the name Joslyn James and excels in kinky sex, was reportedly Tiger’s “full-time” mistress.” James claims she provided “years of faithful service to [Woods’] virulent sexual appetite.”

And the saga is getting sleazier, if that’s at all possible. Porn king Steven Hirsch of Vivid Entertainment has offered $1 million to any of Woods’ mistresses to star in one of his porno films. Perhaps the Perkins pancake house waitress has a new career waiting for her.

In the wake of the scandal involving her husband of five-years, Elin Woods, the mother of the Tiger’s two children, has apparently had enough of his “virulent sexual appetite” and has purchased a $2 million island estate in Sweden.
