DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket Has A Lemonade Stand And A Raiders Fan Mom

These kids have a lemonade stand. A passing jogger (played by Gloria Garayua) is thirsty and wants a cup. But it’s gametime and the kids’ mom is a big Raiders fan. She pours all the lemonade from the Raiders’ embossed pitchers into one giant, diabetes-inducing cup. Time to pack up and go in! Justina Machado plays the mom.

Don’t Be The Cable You…Get DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket

Last week, I wrote about some DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket ads starring a retired Peyton Manning. Now there are more funny spots. There’s the DirecTV you who once saved Tony Romo from a burning building (I hope his shoulder was OK), does karaoke with Eli Manning, and saves puppies with Andrew Luck. The cable you once saved a sandwich for the ride home, puts on his coat like a toddler, and likes a good turtleneck. An additional campaign “Now You Can” is mostly notable because we see Eli Manning dressed as a banana. DirecTV’s NFL commercials are a national jewel.

DirecTV: Peyton Manning Now Spends His Sunday Mornings At The Grocery Store

After 18 seasons, Peyton Manning retired from the NFL back in March. But life goes on, and Peyton still needs things to do on Sunday. So he now spends his Sunday mornings shopping at the grocery store in his bathrobe, and extolling the virtues of DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket to a disinterested cashier. And since those football checks aren’t coming in anymore, Peyton uses coupons. A fiscally savvy move. Other spots show Peyton spending his Sunday mornings at the park, and talking to his brother Eli, who’s about to play. Lionel Richie offers a parody of his song “Easy.”

 

DirecTV’s “Petite Randy Moss” Is Funny, But Some Sell It Short

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.

Deion Sanders Is Still DirecTV’s Football Fairy (With Eli Manning Now!)

Last year, DirecTV introduced an odd campaign to promote its NFL Sunday Ticket package. It featured Deion Sanders as some sort of football fanatic fairy/fly on the wall. And now, the campaign continues and also has a winged Eli Manning! Still weird.
