Word has it that Tiger Woods has not been up to par on the golf course as of late. Maybe it is because he needed to oil his aging joints with the Japanese muscle rub he will be advertising. The Associated Press reports that “Tiger Woods has been hired as a pitchman for a Japanese heat rub used to relieve muscle and joint pain.” Kowa Company Ltd. located in Nagoya recently made a public statement saying that they are “pleased to announce the use of Tiger Woods as the image character of Antiphlogistic Analgetic Vantelin Kowa series.”
Reportedly, Woods has promoted other products in Japan as well. Back in the 90s, he did a television commercial for Japanese canned iced coffee. This latest television commercial for the muscle rub featuring Tiger Woods will appear in Japan nationally starting around mid July.
