Eli Manning stars as 'Bad Comedian Eli Manning' in new DirecTV commercial


Don't be like Bad Comedian Eli Manning.

In what has become a yearly tradition, the Giants' two-time Super Bowl MVP just released his latest commercial for DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket that is sure to go viral like some of the quarterback's past hits.

Similar to the popular series of commercials with actor Rob Lowe, the spot features two versions of Manning: one who has the TV provider, and one who does not.

The latter is a balding "Bad Comedian" Eli Manning who makes jokes as terrible as his clothes.

From a hip-hop artist in "Football On Your Phone" to a 70s police officer in "Football Cops" and the many characters as host of "Saturday Night Live" in the wake of Super Bowl XLVI, Manning delivered another performance that proved once again that he is anything but a bad comedian.
