(TV COMMERCIAL CLIP BEGINS)
TV COMMERCIAL NARRATOR (MALE):
JESPER PARNEVIK LOVES THE NEW STEELHEAD PLUS METALWOODS FROM CALLAWAY GOLF. THEY HAVE A RADICAL NEW LOOK

AND OUR VARIABLE FACE THICKNESS TECHNOLOGY FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
I ONLY HAVE ONE PROBLEM: I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING THAT GOES WITH THIS SHADE OF BLUE.

TV COMMERCIAL NARRATOR (MALE):
THE STEELHEAD PLUS DRIVER AND FAIRWAY WOODS, ONLY FROM CALLAWAY GOLF. WE'RE TAKING STEEL FARTHER.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GONNA DO.
(TV COMMERCIAL ENDS)

PETER KESSLER
 
NOW THE RUMOR MILL SAYS THAT WAS YOUR IDEA, THAT LAST SHOT.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
UH, ACTUALLY THE WHOLE COMMERCIAL WAS, KIND OF. THEY HAD AN IDEA TO DO SOMETHING WITH UM, THE CLOTHING AND SO ON. BUT,

I DIDN'T REALLY LIKE THE INITIAL IDEA THEY HAD BECAUSE UM ... YOU KNOW, THEY WANTED TO MORE LIKE MAKE FUN OF THE CLOTHES AND SO ON. AND UH, YOU KNOW, I REALLY LOVE THE CLOTHES I'M WEARING. SO I WANTED TO DO THE COMMERCIAL THIS WAY INSTEAD

WHERE I KIND OF TRIED TO MATCH IT AGAINST MY OUTFITS AND SO ON. AND THEN, THE ENDING WAS JUST LIKE A FUNNY ENDING, THAT OFF-THE-WALL ENDING.

PETER KESSLER
 
SO YOU'RE SORT OF PRODUCING AND DIRECTING AND WRITING A LITTLE BIT. YOU'RE PLAYING WITH THIS, AREN'T YOU?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
UH, I MEAN, I LIKE TO GET INVOLVED IN THE COMMERCIALS I DO. I MEAN UH, I DON'T WANT TO JUST TURN UP AT THE SET AND THEY GIVE ME A LINE TO READ AND THEN I WALK OFF BECAUSE

I THINK THE COMMERCIAL TURNS OUT A LOT BETTER WHEN YOU'RE INVOLVED IN IT BECAUSE YOU GIVE ... YOU KNOW, THERE'S MORE HEART IN IT AND SO ON. SO I REALLY ENJOY COMING UP WITH CRAZY IDEAS AND SO ON, AND THEN TAPING IT ON - ON FILM.

PETER KESSLER
 
SPEAKING OF CRAZY IDEAS, WHY DON'T WE CHECK OUT ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR CRAZY IDEAS.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
ANOTHER ONE ... HERE WE GO.

PETER KESSLER
 
GO AHEAD.

(TV COMMERCIAL CLIP BEGINS)
TV COMMERCIAL NARRATOR (MALE):
SOME PLAYERS ARE WINNERS ON THE PGA TOUR.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
I'VE DONE THAT.

TV COMMERCIAL NARRATOR (MALE):
SOME HAVE WON BOTH ON THE PGA TOUR AND THE SENIOR PGA TOUR.

BOB MURPHY, GOLFER (MALE):
I'VE DONE THAT.

TV COMMERCIAL NARRATOR (MALE):
BUT TO BE A WINNER ON THE PGA TOUR, THE SENIOR PGA TOUR, AND THE LPGA TOUR, WELL, THEN YOU EITHER HAVE TO GO THROUGH A SEX CHANGE OR BE A VITAMIN CALLED 'LIFIZZ'.

LIFIZZ IS THE OFFICIAL VITAMIN OF THE PGA TOUR, SENIOR PGA TOUR, AND LPGA TOUR.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
I THINK WE CAN DO THIS.

BOB MURPHY, GOLFER (MALE):
I'M JUST NOT SURE ABOUT THIS, JESPER. I'M - I'M JUST NOT.

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
BOB, YOU LOOK GREAT. I MEAN, THAT LIPSTICK IS REALLY YOU.

BOB MURPHY, GOLFER (MALE):
AH ... OH MY.

(SIGN SHOWN:

EFFERVESCENT VITAMINS )
(TV COMMERCIAL ENDS)

PETER KESSLER
 
NOW, NOT EVERYBODY FOUND THAT PARTICULARLY HILARIOUS, RIGHT?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
UH, NO. BUT UH, IT WAS JUST SOMETHING WE CAME UP WITH PRETTY MUCH RIGHT THERE. AND UH, BOB MURPHY, AS YOU KNOW, I MEAN, HE'S A REALLY GREAT GUY,

AND UH, JUST FOR HIM TO, YOU KNOW, DARE TO DO THE THING, I THOUGHT IT WAS - HE SHOWED A LOT OF GUTS. AND WE HAD A LOT OF FUN DOING IT.

PETER KESSLER
 
HOW IMPORTANT DO YOU THINK IT IS FOR MORE PEOPLE NOT TO BEHAVE EXACTLY LIKE YOU DO, BECAUSE THEY BROKE THE MOLD AFTER YOU WERE BORN,

BUT TO SHOW MORE THEIR PERSONALITY AND BE A LITTLE LESS SERIOUS IF IT DOESN'T AFFECT THE QUALITY OF THEIR GOLF WHILE THEY'RE GIVING US A LITTLE BIT MORE OF THEM?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
UH, I MEAN, IT NEVER HURTS, OF COURSE. I MEAN UM, YOU HAVE - YOU CAN LOOK AT IT TWO WAYS. I MEAN, EITHER YOU'RE JUST LOOK AT IT AS, YOU KNOW, I LET THE CLUB DO MY ... DO THE TALKING AND - AND SO ON,

AND IF I'M GOOD ENOUGH, I DON'T NEED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE. BUT UH, ON THE OTHER HAND, GOLF IS A LITTLE BIT OF UM, ENTERTAINMENT AT THE SAME TIME. AND YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT THAT MUCH YOU HAVE TO DO REALLY.

YOU HAVE TO INTERACT A LITTLE BIT WITH THE CROWD AND SO ON. BUT YOU KNOW, IT NEVER HURTS TO DO THAT BECAUSE THAT'S GONNA MAKE GOLF MORE POPULAR THAN IT IS NOW. AND GOLF IS REALLY BOOMING RIGHT NOW AS YOU KNOW.

PETER KESSLER
 
NOW I UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOUR DAUGHTER, PEBBLE PEACH, WAS BORN LAST YEAR, WHICH SOUNDS LIKE A 60'S KIND OF A NAME,

THAT YOUR WIFE, THE OTHER PRACTICAL JOKER IN YOUR FAMILY, CALLED YOU UP AND SAID THAT YOU WERE HAVING TWINS. NOW ...

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
OH, THAT WAS UH ... YEAH, THAT WAS ACTUALLY AT ATLANTA LAST YEAR AND A WEEK BEFORE AUGUSTA. AND I'M DRIVING OFF THE GOLF COURSE, JUST FINISHED MY ROUND, AND SHE CALLS ME ON MY MOBILE PHONE.

AND SHE SAYS, 'OH JESPER, I MEAN, I'VE BEEN TO DOCTOR THIS MORNING. AND YOU KNOW, WE DID ALL THE CHECK-UPS AND ... BUT I THINK YOU BETTER PULL TO THE SIDE. I MEAN, I HAVE UNBELIEVABLE NEWS FOR YOU.'

AND I GO, 'WOW, WHAT HAPPENED NOW? SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG.' AND UM, SO PULLED TO THE SIDE. AND SHE GOES, 'WELL, I WAS THERE AND EVERYTHING WAS NATURAL. BUT THEY HEARD AN EXTRA HEART BEAT.'

AND I GO, I DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, 'SO WHAT DO YOU MEAN AN EXTRA HEART BEAT?' 'WELL, WE'RE GONNA HAVE TWINS.' AND I GO, 'OH BOY'. I MEAN, I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS ALREADY.

SO I GO, 'OH, SO DID THEY TELL YOU WHAT IT WAS.' 'YEAH, TWO MORE DAUGHTERS.' AND I WENT, 'HOLY COW ...'

I MEAN, FOUR - FOUR GIRLS AGAINST ME, I MEAN, IT'S GONNA BE A TOUGH TIME. BUT UM, THAT WAS ... THAT MUST HAVE BEEN 1ST OF APRIL. YEAH, THAT WAS FOR THE APRIL FOOL'S DAY.

PETER KESSLER
 
NOW, WAS THAT BEFORE OR AFTER YOU FOUND OUT, SERIOUSLY, THAT YOU HAD AN IRREGULAR HEART BEAT AND YOU SHOULDN'T BE SHOCKED THAT WAY?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
WELL UH, THAT I FOUND OUT ACTUALLY MANY YEARS AGO. I THINK I WAS AROUND UM 20 YEARS OLD WHEN I FIRST FELT THAT IT WAS NOT - SOMETHING WAS GOING ON WITH MY HEART.

AND UM, I SAW SOME DOCTORS BACK THEN. AND THEY UH, PRESCRIBED FOR ME BETA-BLOCKERS BACK THEN, UM, WHICH I DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE. SO I NEVER USED THEM BECAUSE UH I NEVER REALLY FELT LIKE, YOU KNOW, MEDICATION IS THE ANSWER.

I WANTED TO SOLVE IT NATURALLY AND SO ON. AND THEN I THINK IT WAS AT TPC LAST YEAR, I STARTED FEELING THAT IT GOT WORSE. AND IT'S MOSTLY FROM STRESS AND UH, JUST BEING TIRED.

AND UM, IT WAS NOT JUST AN IRREGULAR HEART BEAT ANYMORE. IT WAS UM, FEELING LIKE YOU'RE GONNA REALLY HAVE A HEART ATTACK. AND THAT JUST KEPT GOING ALL SUMMER LONG.

AND THAT REALLY MADE ME, YOU KNOW, DECIDE TO TAKE THE REST OF THE YEAR OFF, WHICH WAS A GOOD - GOOD DECISION RIGHT NOW.

PETER KESSLER
 
HOW ARE YOU? AND WHAT DO DOCTORS SAY ABOUT YOU?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
OH, I FEEL A LOT BETTER NOW. I MEAN, I WORE A SO-CALLED HEART MONITOR FOR UH 2 MONTHS. AND THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS WHEN YOU TRY TO PICK SOMETHING UP, WITH AN IRREGULAR HEART BEAT, IS THAT

YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE HEART MONITOR ON WHEN YOU GET THE SO-CALLED ATTACK. AND THAT'S VERY, VERY HARD TO TIME BECAUSE UH IT TAKES ABOUT 60 SECONDS TO TURN THE HEART MONITOR ON.

SO THAT'S WHY IT'S VERY HARD TO SAY, BECAUSE YOU GO AND SEE A LOT OF DOCTORS AND THEY SAY, 'WELL, THERE'S NOTHING WITH YOU. WE CAN'T FIND ANYTHING.'

BUT YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU. AND THAT'S REALLY THE DILEMMA I HAD. AND I THINK THAT'S WHY, AS FAR AS I CAN REMEMBER, I MEAN, WAY BACK, I'VE BEEN SO INTERESTED IN,

YOU KNOW, DIFFERENT WAYS OF NATURAL HEALING, VITAMINS, HERBS, AND ALL THAT, JUST TO GET ME IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE BECAUSE I THINK I FELT THAT SOMETHING WAS NOT THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

PETER KESSLER
 
NOW IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY THOUGH, RIGHT? YOUR MOM HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM AND SHE'S FINE, RIGHT?

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
YEAH, MY MOM HAS THE SAME PROBLEM. YEAH, YEAH, SHE'S - BUT SHE'S BEEN WORRIED ABOUT IT FOR 30 YEARS NOW. SHE GOES TO SEE THE DOCTOR EVERY WEEK.

BUT UH, THEY SAY THE SAME THING, 'YOU'RE FINE.' BUT IT'S JUST THE UM, YOU KNOW, THE SCENARIO WHERE YOU DON'T - REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING THAT SCARES YOU. BUT RIGHT NOW, I FEEL A LOT BETTER.

PETER KESSLER
 
WE'RE GONNA TAKE A VERY SHORT BREAK. AND WE'RE GONNA TELL EVERYBODY HOW TO ORDER LIFIZZ,

JESPER PARNEVIK
 
LIFE IS GREAT. TELL THEM.

PETER KESSLER
