    My mind goes blank during all commercials on TV except for the Bud commercial with the guys sitting in the opera and the sopranos high note break their beer bottles. Really funny.

    I don't like it, I don't know what it is really trying to say and after seeing for more that 1 million times I like it even less.
    There are facts that might make people move to DirecTV - if that commercial does ...

    I think the person who said it best was Grampa Simpson ...

    "I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird."

    What's frightening is that The Simpsons have been around for 20 years .... Maggie would be old enough to buy beer.

    Now *I* feel old. Where's the beef?

    I agree. It's just a dumb commercial. Good looking, but dumb.

    What's embarrasing is watching this garbage and have your 7 year old ask questions, and your 14 year old leave the room in embarrassment

    Oh, and the Fat ******* wine commercial - my 7 year old actually turned to me and said dad, what's a fat ******* ? No good answer for that one, although I had the toughest time not busting out laughing.

    looks like I was edited. The name of the wine that is OK to show on national TV and street side advertising, but not OK on this forum is Fat *astard, put a B in the *

    I would assume that is because they make these commercials primarily to run on SD channels to start with.

    I don't know... I think a song like "Episode 666" would be a bit too hardcore for their target audience. :lol:

    I give them a little credit - at least they didn't go with another talking amphibian, metrosexual neanderthals, "Dude - you're getting DirecTV", or "Hi I am DirecTv. And I am Cable".

    So, after reading through this, we can deduce that DirecTV has decided they have captured all of the "older techy folks" market segment. Since discovering this web site about 9 months ago, I agree! By the way, I am part of that market segment, too. They are using the Beyonce ad to caputre the "young male, testosterone (sp?) laden, beer drinking football fan" market segment. I guess they must be the market segment of HDTV buyers (with money) that still haven't figured out how to get an HDTV signal to their TV. I'm sure that ad is doing nothing for them with the ladies. Guess they think women don't control the TV buying decisions in most U.S. households.

    Not for nothing, but I googled the Beyonce DirecTV ad, I had like 3 pages of relevant blogs about it. I'd say this ad hit a homerun as far as getting people talking and DirectV visibility. Seems like a good investment thus far. It is a little cheesy, but hey...lots of people like cheese.
