Tuesday Throwback: DirecTV’s Russian Guy Who Has The Opulence

Yesterday’s disastrous Trump-Putin summit made me think of this hilarious DirecTV ad from the summer of 2010. “Opulence, I has it” will go down as one of the decade’s best advertising lines. Our opulent hero is surrounded by luxury and beautiful women. But he still likes savings the money, so he’s attracted to DirecTV. And you can’t forget his little giraffe friend either. This spot became meme-worthy soon after its release. The decidedly Irish, not Russian Timothy V. Murphy plays Mr. Opulence.
