WATCH: The weird President’s Cup ad where Jordan Spieth became a superhero

The President’s Cup committee has earned some serious creativity points. Instead of showing us the usual stern-faced golfers whacking a drive in slow motion against a rousing orchestral soundtrack, they’ve given an ad that would not be out of place at the next Comic Con. Yes, in an animated world besieged by flying black golf balls with robotic filaments as limbs, there are only an elite few who can stand against them. Part of this special task force is Jordan Spieth, who glows green and possesses putting powers that defy the forces of evil. This being the President’s Cup, he’s not the only superhero here. But he’s certainly saves the day.
