You have to adore the irony of this Vanity Fair February 2010 cover: Tiger Woods? Also, you have to agree that in times of crisis, drastic measures are the new routine.
Tiger needed to smooth out his heavily tarnished image and reputation. What’s buying out the cover story of Vanity Fair (bonus a photo session with Annie Leibovitz, herself in a heavy financial embarrass – even if the photos are said to have been taken in 2006) for Tiger Woods, he whose multimillion commercial endorsements vanished like washed-away sand castles? (the story continues right after the jump!)
I’ve read the Vanity Fair cover story (the web version) and had mixed feelings about Vanity Fair’s cover decision. Bringing someone as unpopular as Tiger is at the moment in the spotlight is a vanity affair indeed. Especially looking so… different than the pro golf player everyone was familiar with. But why? Why would a fallen angel raise the interest necessary to boost magazines sales? Especially one who’s fallen so deep in disgrace due to hypocrisy, cheating and lying his way around the world?
