Grey New York and the Manning Brothers Make Beautiful Music for DIRECTV

Last week, Saatchi LA and Busta Rhymes gave us an update on the “white people rapping” theme in a spot for Toyota; today Grey New York takes a more elaborate turn down the same road with some help from the Manning family and a healthy dose of auto-tune in this extended music video for client DIRECTV.

Amusingly, the subject of this cultural mashup isn’t just football…it’s fantasy football. This inaugural spot involves rainbows, waterfalls, white-guy dreadlocks, the passing of hoagies and a white-hoofed Pegasus clone with a fondness for outer space.

So, frustration with cable could eventually lead to being beaten by three less-than-reputable characters and left to die in a roadside ditch? Well, if you lose an eye after a racquetball takes a bad bounce, the rest certainly seems plausible. Lesson learned.

If you’ve ever seen a baby looking as though he or she is about to attend a Judas Priest concert, you know that something has probably gone awry in that poor child’s family. No grandparent wants to see their grandchild in a dog collar, do they? Hey, if this spot doesn’t convince people to switch to satellite, at least it can make some parents second-guess their child’s manner of dress. Credits, and a warning about taking in stray animals, follow after the jump.
