For every action in the universe, there is a YouTube tribute waiting to happen. Whether you're an actor on an obscenity-riddled tirade on the set of a Terminator movie or a politician with a heretofore undiscovered penchant for Rick rolling, be assured that someone out there is waiting to make hay of your choice words.

So it was inevitable that Tiger Woods' message-heard-round-the-world would get some creative treatment. We just never imagined it would so convincingly lend itself to a down and dirty, R. Kelly-style late-night groove.  From the fine folks at Half Day Today, Tiger's voice mail is the slow jam that will have you crooning "Take your name off your phone" to all the cocktail waitresses on your speed dial.
