    From the dogs playing poker, to the Russian mob boss, to the baby giraffe, this is easily one of the best, most well thought out commercials.


    Hilarious DirectTV Commerical...

    What are your thoughts?

    Tiny giraffe FTW! However, the Ray Lewis Old Spice commercial blows this out of the water...just saying. :p

    Haha, that is hilarious. Especially the small giraffe. And how the dude kisses it.

    "MORE ON THE FACINGBOOK" at the end.

    This commercial has so much going on.

    I love this commercial. If there really were tiny giraffes, I would so get one.

    I literally clicked on this post and the Ad came on my tv. Not too hard to see, though, because I'm watching the Giants game, and this ad is pretty much shown only when the NFL is on.

    I'm much more of a fan of the Geico commercials featuring the "little piggy" and the "woodchucks."

    However, it is a pretty good commercial.

    I hate that "little piggy" commercial. Every time I hear that annoying Weeeee I want to through a brick through the TV. This has got to be the most annoying commercial I have ever heard. It rates up there with fingernails on a chalk board and telemarketers. Not to say it isn't creative it's just one of those that was amusing the first time I saw it then got annoying, fast.

    The Direct TV one is mildly amusing.

    wow

    SOOO funny, although not very original. Seems like they took note of the "most interesting man in the world" commercials and just changed it up a bit, bu tit had "the most interesting man in the world" written all over it.

    oh well, the tiny giraffe and poker-dogs made it a huge WIN.

    I played that video 3 times before I finally found the dogs playing poker....

    I would so buy a tiny giraffe! It's so cool. And then kiss it and laugh like a school girl.... :rolleyes:

    He has more money than Croesus, so he can afford a pigmy giraffe.

    the details in the ads are great, notice he has the (purportedly) original van gogh's 'starry night' on an easel. i couldn't figure out the athletes in the golden framed photo yet

    I quote that first line all the time. I love that commercial. I was complaing about my car the other day and looked at my friend and said "wheel hop, I has it" in my best Russian accent. Good stuff.

    Um, okay. I'd rather have a 2011 Infiniti M56, but to each his own I guess. :)
