Eli Manning Stars as ‘Bad Comedian Eli Manning’ in New DirecTV Ad

Rob Lowe out. Eli Manning in.

Eli Manning is familiar with hilarious DirectTV ads. The Giants QB has taken the place of actor Rob Lowe in a new DirecTV commercial, and it’s so bad it’s good. Avid TV-watchers are surely familiar with such characters as “Painfully Awkward Rob Lowe” and “Poor Decision making Rob Lowe”—characters in an ongoing DirecTV ad franchise.
