Friday funny

When you don't really have anything to say, make it funny.

"The Best Offer of the Year" --> lame.

John Cleese --> awesome.

I'm not sure whether this spot will sell many DirecTV subscriptions, especially given their loud and public battle with Viacom, but it's giving my DVR a workout so I can pause, study and enjoy all the funny bits in each and every scene.

Would it be more effective with a real reason to call and subscribe? Yes.

Did it put DirecTV on my radar screen? Definitely.


  1. Thanks for sharing this! I love John Cleese.

    1. He's hilarious, but the art direction/production design is the real star here
