Sling TV: Nick Offerman And Megan Mullally Are Slingers

Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally have been married since 2003. They parlay that real-life relationship in these new spots for Sling TV, created by The Martin Agency. The freedom of slinging is exhilarating, says Nick. But make sure to limber up before slinging, lest you pull a hammy. Haha.

Sling TV Introduces A Couple Of Slingers

Once, I was at a work party and my boss excitedly told me “there’s weed in the back.” He wanted me to go back there with him, some of my co-workers, and a few other higher-ups. I went back there, intrigued at the potentially awkward experience of marijuana with managers. After heading back, I realized that I had misheard. There was Wii in the back, not weed. Which was cool anyway…we played Wii bowling. It just wasn’t what I was expecting.

I thought of this story after watching this new Sling TV commercial, where a simple misunderstanding leads to awkwardness. One couple is hosting another, and a wife suggests “slinging with us.” There’s a moment of discomfort, but the other couple agrees. They head to the couch…and start watching Sling TV. Red-headed wife realizes they said Sling, and then admits she thought they said they were something that rhymes with slingers. Her husband, who seemed much more open to “slinging” also is confused…and he’s unbuttoning his shirt. Whoops. It’s a funny spot created by The Martin Agency (best known for their Geico work), but one I’m sure the fuddie-duddies won’t like. The slinger wife is played by Tiffany Elle, and the unbuttoning husband is Dan Gill.
