Too bad Mr. Ed is no longer. Now that would have been classic.
If Tupac can sell albums a decade after his death, Mr. Ed can shill for Dish. Additionally, Wilbur is still alive (and still voice acting), but obviously a bit older.

It must have worked on my folks; Mom had a Lark. But, growing up in South Bend in the 1960s, it seems everyone had a Studebaker!

I wonder if Hannah Davis is subbed to Directv ? :rolleyes:

I also see they didn´t pay the horse for doing the commercials.

So, hopefully they paid Hannah more than enough so that she can buy herself larger bikinis to protect herself from sunburns.

Have you seen the one with Hannah on the beach about signal reliability and the goat! They nailed that one! Very funny!

Yeah, I thought that one was quite funny.

I also had some laughs watching the behind the scenes video clip posted above.

I didn´t know that horse was fluent in Spanish :D.

Every DirecTV commercial I have ever seen is ALWAYS directed at men, or, more specifically, a certain type of man. The commercials are clever in that they imply that getting DirecTV will enhance their masculinity, which it also infers is quite deficient without DirecTV.

Now, the commercials are either about putting a HOT quasi Hooci-girl prostitute like female (very crass in appearance and not a women any of the men would marry, but certainly in their fantasies) on the screen to play upon the most basic of male desires or the commercials are where the male who has the DirecTV subscription or NFLST is large and tall and even super-human in stature and DOMINATES the guy without the subscription who is shorter, less muscular, kind of a small dude and the message is the wimps, submissives, or "bottoms" of the male species don't have DirecTV or NFLST. Even the Cord family campaign to promote the wireless Genie client (that family who had strings attached to them, except for the man) was about the Husband/Father being the alpha male who is just a bit of a jerk, but always dominate in a somewhat male chauvinistic way, who was the only real person large and in charge while his string son is a victim, his wife foolish to laugh at, and his father in-law an OLD (something DirecTV seems to be saying is bad and NOT DTV subscribers) man who is no longer physically threatening to our Alpha male DirecTV subscriber. It is IDENTITY and leverages any insecure feelings a male may have about their masculinity where women have unprecedented say so and human rights in a marriage (Prohibition was the result astronomical numbers of drunken men beating their wives almost every day and no one doing anything to curb it; we have come some way since then). Very effective while also being very cynical, but that is the dark side of advertising.

The only moral in advertising and marketing, is whether or not it sells. It can't be bad if it sells, right? Majority rule

Hey, maybe they can get the VIAGRA British chick to do a commercial for them substituting Directv for Viagra instead , if they want to try to sell men on it's ability to enhance their mascularity.:idea

Yes! Right up there with "I am a superior/better/more intelligent person than you because my paycheck is larger than yours." A person's income always been a great standard for determining all sorts of things in our country :).

Dish TV commercials are dull and boring compared to Directv, but dish focuses their advertising on being cheaper than Directv and cable.

I liked the "don't get cable" campaign before the Rob Lowe ad's , but it still never convinced me to switch. And most certainly a talking horse isn't going to convince me, same as the pushy DTV dudes at Costco.
