The Loop

The guy in this commercial clearly just topped his drive

December 15, 2014

If you watched the PNC Father-Son Challenge last weekend, you probably saw this commercial from Oppenheimer Funds. The ad said everything you'd expect from a well-respected investment bank, but golf nuts everywhere couldn't help but notice something a little strange: About five seconds through, a man with a slightly steep swings seems to top his drive.


The guy in this TV advert clearly just topped his drive.

@LukeKerrDineen haha - absolutely. Hilarious! They obviously went with the first take - no mulligan.
