Tuesday Throwback: DirecTV’s Hilarious Opulent Russian Guy

“Opulence, I has it” is one of the best commercial lines (and almost certainly the best opening line) in years. This DirecTV ad quickly became a meme after being released in the summer of 2010. That little giraffe always killed me. And I never noticed it before…but the “more on the Facingbook” at the end is also quite funny. The guy who plays Opulent Russian Guy is Timothy V. Murphy.
