To illustrate the eccentricities of star handlers, Ari Shaffir shared a hilarious story from his own experience. He recounted shooting a commercial with golf superstar Tiger Woods before his infamous scandal. Shaffir explained that the handlers had explicitly instructed the crew not to curse or swear in Woods‘ presence.

“We did a commercial with Tiger Woods. They are like ‘Don’t curse around him’, it’s like before the scandal, they are like ‘Don’t curse around him, don’t swear’. I was like ‘Okay’.”
