Introducing “Football Cops”

We get plenty of unsolicited e-mail.  Not just from folks who need a bank account into which $20 million can be parked, but also from people who have something about which they want us to give free publicity.  Unless we see something that we think benefits our audience, our response (if/when we even respond) is simple:  “Buy an ad.”

Here’s one that we think benefits our audience.

The fine folks at DirecTV, who unlike the NFL won’t make customers pay in advance for something they may not get (even though the fine folks at DirecTV may have to pay $1 billion for nothing in 2011), have produced a video entitled “Football Cops.”  We clicked on the YouTube link with some skepticism, but we ultimately thought it was funny, and so we thought you may think it’s funny, too.

If nothing else, we appreciate the efforts of the folks at DirecTV to give us something to occupy our attention as the lockout lingers.

    Roger Ebert gave this video a rating of 4 Oreo cookies.

    Note the digits on the squad car. Coincidence?

    God I hope this is real.

    Wow, that was actually funny and entertaining with a lot spent on effects and direction. I am impressed and I would have to watch if it were true. That’s some good stuff.

    That was awesome. I love Eli’s porno ‘stache.

    That was spectacular.

    Who needs the NFL!

    Just when you can’t take anymore of Peyton and Eli, they do something like this and TOTALLY REDEEM THEMSELVES !!!

    I’d watch it. Those ‘staches bump Mario and Luigi out of the top spot for Mustachioed Brothers.

    That was great!

    They actually managed to make Eli look mean, lol.

    The old man looked great and Peyton was Peyton, Directv is where it’s at , always has been.

    that was pretty lame. like real lame

  14. mmbgb says: Jun 23, 2011 9:57 AM

    That was excellent. He’s obviously been recovering from neck surgery, but should it be concerning that they never actually showed Peyton’s laser rocket arm…?

  15. bigblue86 says: Jun 23, 2011 10:27 AM

    That ball that was just off the mark by Eli at the end was exactly what he normally does. I loved it though!

  16. thegreenviking says: Jun 23, 2011 10:50 AM

    That was great. I hope they do some more.

  17. skinsfaninnebraska says: Jun 23, 2011 11:29 AM

    LOL! Brilliant! Love it.

  18. gueski says: Jun 23, 2011 11:56 AM

    Wow, okay that was actually funny! More of this and less money bickering NFL.

  19. pacificnw7722 says: Jun 23, 2011 12:07 PM

    Eli, in reality should really grow a mustache…. It would make him look kinda cool.

    Are you listening Eli?

  20. SpartaChris says: Jun 23, 2011 12:48 PM

    Most accurate pass of Eli’s career.

  21. igor1984 says: Jun 23, 2011 2:40 PM

    This is so over-the-top it is great! C’mon, football’s against uzis?

    But with the Manning Bros. you can believe it … I guess if you can believe stuff like cool vampire twentysomethings and 10-foot blue remote control marines in space, why not this?

    If only Plaxico had been cast as a gunman….

  24. mdnittlion says: Jun 23, 2011 7:31 PM

    I so wish that Jon Gruden would have been cast as the Chief cause he would have brought that pure energy to it.

    Honestly I’d rather watch than another decade of Law & Order or CSI or any of the spin offs from either show.

  25. cover2blitz0 says: Jun 23, 2011 10:54 PM

    that was 2:38 of greatness lol

    …Or Marvin Harrison, or both 🙂

    My son says they used the infamous Wilhelm Scream in the trailer. If so, that really increases the attention to detail.
