Direct TV makes terrible commercials


Yeah, so, I’ve been watching a lot of baseball, because my beloved San Francisco Giants are in the playoffs. (Go Giants!)

Watching a lot of baseball on TV means I’m watching the same commercials repeatedly. Most of the commercials are for Viagra, crappy beer (Bud Light Lime? Budweiser? Ew.) and Axe body spray. There is also a commercial for Direct TV.

I have grown to hate this commercial.

Mighty, mighty good man David hates this commercial because the man is brushing his teeth with no toothpaste. Valid point. I hate this commercial because, seriously, WTF? Did you watch it?

Wife: “I feel like it’s just watching me walk around naked.”
Husband: “Well, at least somebody gets to.”

What a dick.

Is their marriage in trouble because they are having DVR issues, and that’s why he never gets to see her naked? Dude, if you never get to see your wife naked, then maybe deciding between satellite and cable shouldn’t be your top priority.

Or, was the marriage already in trouble, and they are not really arguing about TV? Maybe it’s a loveless, sham of a marriage, and TV is the only bright spot in their dark, horrible, empty lives

Most likely their marriage is in trouble because that jackass husband is obsessed with the DVR. He should spend less time watching TV and more time talking to his wife, then he might get to see her naked more often.

Oh, and did you notice the shows they are recording? “Diva Dentists?” “Hit the Switches?” Those sound like TLC or E! shows to me. Gross.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I hate to point this out, but…I seem to remember you buying Bud Light Lime. Don’t hate me.

    • I could never hate you, Kate. That’s crazy talk!

      I remember buying Bud Light Lime back in my Atkins days. It must have been six or seven years ago.

      I went to my parents’ house a few months ago, and The Man offered me a beer. It was a Bud Light Lime. I took two sips and handed it back to him to finish. I guess my tastes have changed.

  2. Yea for Don! Don is single. Got no DDR issues.
    And if you will excuse me, I need to go put my pants on.

  3. You don’t have a sense of humor because those commercials are hilarious.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
