Never one to shy away from controversy, exhibit good taste or achieve anything of significance for their alleged cause, PETA is planning a new Tiger Woods ad.
Unlike most PETA ads, which show celebrities espousing pet adoption, not wearing fur, etc., this one uses the Tiger Woods scandal as a PR-grabbing punchline.

Mmm. Yeah. Somehow we doubt it. Watch your back, Virginia Fort. Elin Woods may be coming after you with a 9-iron shortly after this ad makes its debut.
