Move over, Rob Lowe — you’ve got company.
Last football season, NFL fans couldn’t help but notice the actor popping up in nearly every single commercial break as he pitched DirecTV in a pretty entertaining ongoing series of spots. “Creepy Rob Lowe,” “Meathead Rob Lowe” and “Painfully Awkward Rob Lowe” were just a few of the alter egos created to illustrate the difference between DirecTV and cable.
Now, with a new football season upon us, the campaign is back — sort of. Instead of Lowe pushing the satellite TV service, DirecTV has called on New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
The commercials actually are pretty funny. Check them out below.
