American Standard and Carmichael Lynch celebrate the indoors with their latest campaign. The TV spot “Movie Marathons,” directed by Albert Kodagolian, opens with a young woman dressing up as a vintage scream queen, seemingly in preparation for a night out. But it’s soon revealed that she’s “attending” a sci-fi movie marathon with her boyfriend and cat.

In the meantime, brother Eli continues to expand his acting oeuvre by starring in a series of ads for BankPlus, a chain of banks located throughout Mississippi (considering he did play ball at Ole Miss, we say it’s appropriate casting). The “aw shucks” charm we’ve come to know from his interviews and in ads for Toyota, Oreo Double Stuf and now DirecTV shines through in this campaign, which debuts on Sept. 1 and begs the question, “What if Eli Manning never played football?” Check out the second spot below and credits after the jump.
