The only time I see commercials is during live sporting events.
Double play is your friend.
BTW - I'm not morally opposed or anything. It's a free society.
I just thought it was an amazingly stupid ad.
+1. Thank You for your comment as it is Stupid and will not cause anyone to pick up the phone and subscribe to Directv.
I suspect you'll get alot more takers to that point.
Its when things got diverted to subliminal messages and the like that the topic got all over the place. :lol:
hdtvfan - My post #1:
I think the ad is completely stupid and should be pulled. Not for moral reasons - because it's such a dumb commercial.
I didn't get into subliminal messages
He was Not Murdered as I thought at first glance but was sedated by a powerful tranquilizer dart which is much more Benign.
Yes, it is a Dumb Stupid Waste of Money Commercial that will not bring anything to the Bottom Line for Directv except a loss of income that it cost to make this POS!!!
...this from the person who thought someone had been murdered. Just saying.
A waste of whose money? Theirs. So, why do you care so much? Not to mention that the spot may be very successful for them, as many others have been.
Hoosier - why do I care?
I'd rather they spend $$$ on more effective and cheaper commercials and use the retained earnings to increase HDTV programming
They have plenty for both. They are doing very well financially. Regardless, how effective you believe their commercials have been is purely your opinion. All signs point towards them being highly successful however. This one was both humorous and on point.
Speaking of DirecTv's commercials, I like the one where the guy throws the snow on the his neighbor's door....fairly funny...
But the ones where the folks heads turn into Benjamen's is just downright creepy to me!
All in all, most DirecTv commercials are irritating.

My 30-second skip button gets quite a workout...
Yes, less money on Marketing! Genius! :nono2: Hopefully, you don't run a business.
I sir...do not have that option so I just suffer through most of them. But then again, there are other commercials that are a lot more irritating than DirecTv's!
That is most likely something many would agree upon.
I don't find the Commercial Irritating but just Dumb and I don't see how that will win Directv any business as it doesn't really Sell Me on anything.
Tell me why exactly I should switch to Directv and then let me make my decisions based on Research.
It's not always about selling you. Sometimes, just getting you to remember their name is a goal. The commercial has you & others obsessively posting about it...that's a win in their eyes. Product recognition.
Does D* actually provide PPV films a month before Netflix?
