DirecTV has a new Sunday Ticket ad campaign similar to last year's with Rob Lowe. I guess there was some potential for legal action (according to NFL.com (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000503705/article/bad-comedian-eli-manning-steps-in-for-rob-lowe)) against DTV for those commercials... I don't know exactly but am curious if anybody else heard anything about that.

Anyway, enjoy. I thought it was pretty funny.

What were some of the best Rob Lowe commercials? I liked the awkward one.

I heard something about the Lowe ones. Apparently some watch dog group claimed to commercials to be false advertising or something similar.

I love the Romo and Eli ones though, I thought many of the Lowe ones were also pretty funny.

The one where he's down at the rec center, "watching people swim" is my favorite. Cracks me up every time.

My favorite is the Comcast commercial that depicts two elderly ranchers in the middle of some godforsaken Montana ranch watching a storm front coming.

[paraphrasing]
"Looks like a storm a comin"

"Yep"

"Satellite gonna get knocked out again"

"Yep"

"You can come to my house and watch my Comcast"

I have a buddy who lives in a slightly rural area in Cloverdale Indiana, and he has never been able to get cable service, and he only lives 10 minutes from a damn Walmart. But we're supposed to believe that these Montana ranchers living in the exact middle of nowhere somehow have cable service?

It's like they didn't even think about the elephant in the room when producing that commercial. The biggest drawback of cable is it's hardwired nature, which requires preexisting infrastructure to accommodate service.

Point being, they're all lying to us.
