Tiger Woods lampooned by Robot Chicken movie spoof ‘Golf Jam’ (NSFW)


SHARE THIS STORY

Remember the Michael Jordan-Bugs Bunny blockbuster "Space Jam"? The folks at Adult Swim's "Robot Chicken" do, and they decided to spoof it and lampoon Tiger Woods at the same time.

In what turned out to be an incidentally well-timed bit, the uniquely shot animation series released an episode in which Woods stars in a movie called "Golf Jam."

The premise is that Woods wants to restore his image after his serial marital infidelity was revealed in 2009 and early in 2010. He decides -- like C. Montgomery Burns in a famous episode of "The Simpsons" -- that a movie would be the best way to do that. Woods' agent tells Tiger no major animation studio will license their characters to the tainted golfer, except Dic -- the folks behind Heathcliff and other second-rate cartoons.



Tiger has to win a golf match to save their world, which he eventually does, but only after hitting on Heathcliff's girlfriend, Cleo, mercilessly and making fun of the animators who created them.

The jokes are about five years too late (unless you count the second-level play on Woods' annual TigerJam concert benefiting his foundation), but blame that on the grueling process of stop-motion animation.
