Rolex unintentionally pokes fun at Phil Mickelson’s 2004 Masters jump

Sometimes, unintentional humor is the best kind of humor. Not known for its humor, Rolex brings it to us in an ad we've seen for months.

Jack Nicklaus stars in the ad, where he's walking through a hall of great golf moments of sorts. Nicklaus stumbles on the photo of Phil Mickelson's victory leap -- all 8 inches of it -- after winning the 2004 Masters with a dramatic final putt.

The narrator then is heard saying, "...giant leaps taken." Obviously, it's figurative because Mickelson's vertical is practically negative. (There's also a leap into Poppy's Pond at the LPGA's erstwhile-named Kraft Nabisco Championship.)

But if you don't get a chuckle out of this, we're not sure how to put a smile on your face.
