Are you sick of that commercial yet?
I have no desire to ever buy that golf ball but I am so tired of that commercial.



Anyone else sick of the "Sopranos" style commercial?

    Wasn't the "Butcher" some kind of gangster on something? Seems like I've seen him in movies or on TV or something other than that commercial. It's really embarassing..



    "It's OK Scratch, this guy's a player..."



    Then why's he playing a Slazenger rock?

    The thing that annoys me most about the commerical is the guy driving the green on 350 yard hole. You would think they would have put a little more realism in it, that is how you should sell balls.



    Is Slazenger still owned by TM? I was surprised to see that they are even still around.

    at ****'s they have a huge display for them, with a picture of the dude from the commercial. . .I'm sure their terrible balls, but I'm never going to find out from experience.

    YESSSSSSSS THANK U GOD YESSSSS. I wish someone would "wack" the soprano's guy so i NEVER EVER EVER EVER again have to hear "That's all we got here". Along with Slazenger should take out their advertising department and feed them to "Scratch". IMO

    In 1985, Dunlop Sports bought Slazenger, a very old and successful British sports company, and became known as Dunlop Slazenger. In 2004, the company owning Dunlop Slazenger sold to new owners, SWI, which started selling out, with the brand being licensed to Pacific Brands in Asia, and the Dunlop Slazenger Group in the U.S.



    About two years ago, ****'s acquired the license to use the Slazenger name in the U.S., so Slazenger became a ****'s exclusive product. Whereas Slazenger (Dunlop Slazenger) in the U.S. was previously of higher quality (particularly in Tennis equipment), the Slazenger stuff from ****'s is different (****). Thus, the Slazenger in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, is not necessarily the same by any means. Don't be mad at "Slazenger". Be mad at the previous owners for selling out and messing up Dunlop Slazenger. And be mad at ****'s for turning a company with good products into lower market junk.



    The guy from the commercial is actor Steve Schirripa from the Sopranos.

    Yeah that is one annoying commercial. The only good thing is the black panther (jaguar).



    But on a brighter note...as a result of the Slazenger Raw marketing machine and The Golf Channel I have decided to change my bag entirely. I'm going with the Hammer driver, with the matching Zolex fairway woods, while wearing a Swing Glove topped off with my Raw balls. (Okay that last part sounded a little too personal, guess I better get that checked out).

  • I thought Tony capped that guy, weighted him down and through him in the ocean?? How is it that he has come back to chop meat and sell balls?

    p***y got thrown in the ocean. This guy plays Bobby and he is still alive and well and pretty much third in pecking order in the Soprano family.

    The guy can't be that good if he keeps losing balls like that.

    Hate them both. Interesting side note..a friend of mine's parents bought a place in the Villages and he did some research...seems that the Villages is the "city" with the highest rate of STD's in the country!! Guess the old folks believe absolutely in unprotected romping. I know where I am going to retire!

    So if i want a sleeve of these balls do I have to go to a butcher to get them? Golf Channel will air anything. This commercial is so bad on so many levels. What the **** is a panther doing in meatlocker anyway? I want it RAW!
  • dtwainrightdtwainright Members Posts: 433
    And the blood on the ball at the end is a VERY classy touch
  • mr_divotsmr_divots Members Posts: 8,297
    Slazenger's ad motto should be:

    "Tackiest balls in the business."



    Completely classless commercial. Love the blood. Well done ****'s.

    No that was Big Pusssy. This is his bro-in-law Bobby. He whacked a guy up in Canada earlier and he will go down for that before the show ends I think. I do not have such a big problem with the commercials although I think the balls are probably rocks. I was just at Tidewater in Myrtle Beach last week & they were giving away 6 packs or Raw with any shirt purchase.

    actually, miami still holds the distinction. . .the villages are just a couple minutes away from my hometown, Ocala, Fl. its always terrible to have to drive near there, because all traffic basically comes to a stop from all the old people with their huge caddy's.



    as for the STD thing, some people say its an urban myth, some people say its true. its supposed to be because these old people's husbands and wives are dropping like flies, and when they were young there really was no need for protection. supoosedly they don't know about condoms or any forms of contraception. its not like their worried about having kids!



    oh yeah, and these commercialls still suck.

    The commercial must be helping them sell balls because they are spending a TONNNNN of money airing that thing as many times as they do.

    Just Had to revive this thread! The "new" Raw commercial is even better than the first.
  • thenewbiethenewbie Chimpanzee that monkey news! Members Posts: 1,549
    in all fairness, the new one is just stright up vomit-enducing, but atleat theres a hot chick in it!



    funny, I'm pretty sure I've seen those two big dudes from the new commercial at the range. they have one driver, 3 six-packs, and take turns attempting the "happy gilmore".



    "dude, I f***ing KILLED that one, YEEEEAAAAHHHH!" the sure do get excited when they get out to that ellusive 200 yard marker.
