Direct Tv over the last year or so, has done a shitload of terrible commercials, some pushing the boundaries of poor taste. By posthumously depicting great actors alongside their failing costars who are trying to scratch up a buck or two, acting nonchalantly with their once superior cohorts who’s lives were cut short, leaving these fuckheads to exploit what little success they had by waking the dead to ruin their street cred by placing a classic film into a bullshit commercial. Craig T Nelson included, acting with his daughter from Poltergeist last year, and being extremely cool with making money off a dead little girl…Too soon? No. Never should have been thought up, it’s a travesty and mars the rep that Direct Tv is trying to develop for themselves. It’s like Christian Bale in the interagation room in Dark Knight throwing Heath Ledger to the ground and saying, “I could be home right now watching Direct Tv if I didn’t have to worry about THIS joker!”……Not just poor taste, but a ludicrously asinine and mundane premise to begin with….
It wasn’t too long ago that people were up in arms about Carol Ann from Poltergeist posthumously being a part of a piece of shit Direct Tv commercial, they said it was in poor taste and disrespectful.
Well now the gauntlet has been tossed down again, these sick motherfuckas apparently love to get actors who can’t find work to CG themselves in with former living costars. The new Direct Tv promo has David Spade acting with “Fat guy in a little coat” Chris Farley. I saw it last night and didn’t think the typical “too soon” burn notice, I saw it and said, “That is tacky and tasteless douche noz”….It would be different, MAYBE, if it was a good or clever commercial, or even something that paid a cool homage to Farley. But it’s Spade, one of the flash in the pan, SNL gutter dwellers who only seems to have success when Farley’s with him, leaching off the deceased legend to once again “Work with him” If you can even call it that.
Best thing about the commercial? Is Chris Farley, still doing his classic and hilarious fat guy in a little coat…Spade is the filler that doesn’t need to be there. they could sell the Direct Tv commercial with Farley Alone.
Below is sellout Craig T Nelson, squeezing a couple bucks out of the long dead Heather O’Rourke for, you guessed it, a piece of shit Direct Tv commercial…..What will they think of next?
