PXG Commercials are really really really bad - am I right?

I think it just shows how good the players on tour truly are since they manage to win despite not using "the best-performing golf equipment on the planet".

It is insulting. Bob wanting you to spend $3000+ on hollow pings filled with magic goo and studded in hideous dirt gathering screws is definitely insulting.

 

But apparently a lot of people like being insulted. He's selling lots of them. Kudos to him. He's obviously found a niche market nearly everyone else was ignoring.

Eh, it's not that bad, a lot of commercials are like that. It delivers the message they want to deliver which is that they aren't obsessed with cost cutting and just what to design the best club possible. True or not that's clearly the message and it's well stated

 

I agree about the voice though. Whoever it is, Parsons or not....it's out of place. Like Macgruff the crime dog selling you clubs

 

"ruff ruff, buy our clubs!, ruff ruff!"

Wow another PXG bashing thread. Thought there were plenty of these already. ��

 

I am indifferent to the clubs (I like what I have now and I am not in the market). I actually like the idea of the company and wish them well.

 

My bashing is 100% on their marketing and specifically these commercials, I just don't think the commercials position them as an upscale golf company. Parsons voice over almost seems like a parody of a commercial voice over.

Clearly people ran out of things to bash so they're now on to the commercials.

It's Parsons, it's fine. I think much of that market likes that confident, best club hype.

 

No, the screws do not gather dirt - been playing them a year - no dirt. Don't know why you'd make that comment because it sounds like you're not a fan or a purchaser.

What is your pre and post PXG index?

Is it just me or are the PXG TV commercials just way off the mark? The voice over guy sounds like he should be doing 'tongue and cheek' underwear commercials.

 

Given the price point of these clubs I really expected a more elegant campaign, but the current one makes them sound like value clubs.

 

I've always assumed it was him simply because his ego wouldn't let anyone else tell the world how great and superior his product is compared to the competition.

Agreed. PXG in general is just really really really bad in my opinion, but that's just my opinion :) I found the latest Michelob Beer ones bad too; a whole group of cut people working out in the gym and drinking beer, lol... not happening!

 

EDIT: Silly Michelob Ultra commercial here

It's either this or viagra commercials. I'd rather watch viagra commercials.

 

This is parsons. The only shocking part is the lack of barely clothed woman.

 

As far as viagra, anyone find it depressing that the lady in the commercial are going on like 6 week trips based on the amount of luggage being carried but the guy only needs a single pack? Of course I have never figure out why anyone would need a single pack for a pill.....
