DirecTV’s “Petite Randy Moss” Is Funny, But Some Sell It Short
August 25, 2015 2 Comments
Being a short male (I’m 5’5″), I’ve learned to deal. There are obvious shortcomings (pun absolutely intended). Many women eschew shorter men and we make less on average than our taller brethren. But there’s no non-painful way to gain height, so it’s best to just accept yourself and have a sense of humor. Which leads me to DirecTV’s new NFL Sunday Ticket commercial featuring former (well, probably) great Randy Moss. It’s the same formula of the Rob Lowe campaign, except now it has Randy Moss, who has DirecTV, and petite Randy Moss, who has cable. It’s pretty funny. But more sensitive men, perhaps with Napoleon complexes, are outraged. One of the obvious jokes, for those in the know, is that Moss is one of the tallest wide receivers to play the game. So lighten up, guys. I mean, I too hate it when they put the “fruity munch” on the top shelf. It’ll be interesting to see if this commercial lasts, or gets pulled because of the easily offended.
