DIRECTV strike gold again: Marionettes – No more wires!

If DirecTV is trying to position its Wireless Genie Mini device as a high-tech toy for doofy bros who view women as puppets—mission accomplished!
Perhaps that’s a tad harsh or too literal. Still, there’s something unnerving about these new ads from Grey New York, directed by Bryan Buckley, featuring a life-size blonde marionette. In one ad, she struggles with her wires while pouring lemonade for a pair of DirecTV-lovin’ dudes. In a second spot, our heroine dangles from the bedroom ceiling in a sexy negligee, concerned her human beau is more attracted to DirecTV.

Once again, DirecTV fails to disappoint. Their ads just keep getting better! Completely different from the last campaign (one of my favourites of all time), but still just as hilarious. You don’t even have to be an ad-geek to love this!
