The Russian Returns for DirecTV, Guns Blazing

Ask and ye shall receive we suppose. The Russian oligarch (played by actor Tim Murphy) returns, thick accent, opulence and all in a follow-up to Grey New York’s well-received campaign from last year for DirecTV. Now that the introductions to the man and his mini-giraffe are out of the way, the theme this time around revolves around staying fit, in only the bizarre way our protagonist knows how. The line of choice here: “No pain, no pain.”
