Marketers have pulled all Tiger Woods advertisements from prime-time television broadcast networks and 19 cable channels following reported extramarital affairs, according to data from Nielsen Co.
The last prime-time ad featuring the 33-year-old golfer was a 30-second Gillette Co. spot that ran on Nov. 29, according to New York-based Nielsen. Woods was also absent from commercials on a number of weekend sports programs, including NFL games, Nielsen said.
Fifteen different advertisements featuring Woods have appeared during prime time since the beginning of June, according to Nielsen. Those included spots for Gillette, Accenture, Electronic Arts and the PGA. Most had stopped running as the PGA golf season wound down, prior to Woods’s accident. A Gillette ad that also included baseball player Derek Jeter was still running, according to Nielsen.
