Spoiled Milk and Broken Turnstiles

DirecTV has had some great commercials over the years (remember Rob Lowe?), and I’ve really enjoyed a couple of its most recent ones.

The commercials feature the tagline “but some people still like cable”, and highlight individuals enjoying painful situations.

The commercials aren’t enough to make me switch from Verizon’s FIOS, which I’ve been very happy with for a few years now, but DirecTV wins the battle of TV commercials.

Fun fact: the ad agency responsible for these commercials is the Grey Global Group out of New York. The company is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
