New Mannings video shows funnier Eli


The Manning brothers have done it again.

Two years after their Football Cops faux movie trailer provided a welcome oasis in the desert that was the NFL lockout, Eli and Peyton Manning are pitching the DirecTV Sunday Ticket with a D–k in a Box-style rap video entitled Football On Your Phone.

Sure, it rips off the Timberlake-Samberg Color Me Badd vibe, which has shown up in at least three SNL Digital Shorts.  But Eli and Peyton can pull it off, making the end result look far easier than it is.

For a change, Eli is actually funnier in this one than Peyton.

It could be that Peyton opted to give the best lines to Eli.  Regardless, the end result (including a cameo from Archie Manning) is memorable.

There may not be many more encores.  DirecTV’s deal with the NFL expires after the 2014 season, and DirecTV CFO Pat Doyle told investors earlier this year that DirecTV may drop the package, if it gets too expensive.

Hopefully, they’ll still use some of that money to develop Eli and Peyton videos.

    How many cats did they have to kill to make a wig big enough to cover Peyton’s forehead?

    That was hilarious!!!!
    The Mannings do an amazingly accurate spoof on the typical Jets fans

    The Mannings are hilarious

    Where was Snooki and the Situation?

  7. gcsuk says: Aug 6, 2013 2:54 PM

    Eli looks suspiciously like the Geico caveman.

  8. bahoto34 says: Aug 6, 2013 2:54 PM

    man i hate these two guys, but damn do they make great commercials

  9. torturedraiderfan says: Aug 6, 2013 2:55 PM

    Jeez. I’m embarrassed for them. Sometimes the money just isn’t worth it.

  10. clarenceoveur says: Aug 6, 2013 2:57 PM

    Johnny Manziel’s cameo must have gotten spliced out.

  11. underrated49ers says: Aug 6, 2013 3:00 PM

    I normally love all the stuff the Mannings do, but I could barely make it half way through this.

  12. goindy2006 says: Aug 6, 2013 3:01 PM

    Talk about jumping the shark!!! OMG…

  13. thestrategyexpert says: Aug 6, 2013 3:04 PM

    They should have cross-marketed with a national hair salon as I’m inspired to get a new hairdo, as well as get football on my phone.

  14. sb44champs says: Aug 6, 2013 3:07 PM

    Everyone (and their grandma) thinks that Peyton should be G.O.A.T. but he can’t even pass Eli as far as the playoffs are concerned….
    Brees probably holds more NFL records than all of the Mannings combined….. TRUST

    They’re starting their own boy band next.

  16. justintuckrule says: Aug 6, 2013 3:07 PM

    I’m a Giant fan and Eli lover but this commercial stunk out loud. If you actually liked it or “lol-ed” you need your head examined.

  17. somethingsmellsrotten says: Aug 6, 2013 3:08 PM

    Wish these guys would just go away already…talk about wanting to be in the spotlight 24/7…enough is enough.

  18. randyschwimmer7 says: Aug 6, 2013 3:16 PM

    Top comment on that YouTube video belongs to this GUY! I love that video. Song is very catchy.

  19. patsbrat says: Aug 6, 2013 3:17 PM

    Was that Eli or one of the Marx Brothers? Looks like a cross between Harpo and Chico.

  20. heisthejuan says: Aug 6, 2013 3:22 PM

    The Mannings are about money.

  21. vegaskid21 says: Aug 6, 2013 3:26 PM

    Eli is still a douche bag!

  22. nfloracle says: Aug 6, 2013 3:29 PM

    I guess I’m really getting old, but I thought that video sucked worse than the NLF commercials with the guy in the blue suit from last season?

    Duh, was that last season or several seasons? Geez, I am getting old… no memory left either.

  23. baddegg says: Aug 6, 2013 3:31 PM

    I liked this bit better when Justin Timerlake and Andy Sandberg did it several years ago on SNL…

  24. @HowdyDoobie says: Aug 6, 2013 3:36 PM

    This video should be 2 minutes shorter.

    These guys are funny…Someone should ask one of them to host Saturday Night Live.

  27. siennaLilo says: Aug 6, 2013 3:48 PM

    If you didn’t think this was absolutely hilarious I will never have a drink with you! You must have NO sense of humor.

    For all of us working stiffs, this pretty much made our day at the office. Peyton and Eli are absolutely hysterical and they make it look so easy! LOVE THE MANNING BROS!!

  28. hobbstweedle says: Aug 6, 2013 3:57 PM

    Just horrible. Not funny in the least. Boring.

  29. sb44champs says: Aug 6, 2013 3:58 PM

    Doesn’t everyone just love all of the Manning Slurpers on here today, lol

  30. mancave001 says: Aug 6, 2013 4:09 PM

    Yeah it wasn’t funny. Football cops way better.

  31. elliottcovert says: Aug 6, 2013 4:15 PM

    Eli’s wig was pretty funny

  32. nukeslovesit says: Aug 6, 2013 4:17 PM

    You can’t spell elite without Eli.

  33. packerbackernj says: Aug 6, 2013 4:25 PM

    Makes me dislike them even more. The only Manning I like is Cooper, because the media can’t force him down my throat like the other two mongos

  34. noring4youstill says: Aug 6, 2013 4:28 PM

    No the package should extend to all providers and therefore, but we know that wouldn’t happen, would be cheaper.

  35. justwinbaby29 says: Aug 6, 2013 4:31 PM

    The women in black were hot. As for the Manning boys…..

  36. bigwayne75 says: Aug 6, 2013 4:34 PM

    I read all the haters’ comments and I think to myself, they hate because they are jealous.

    yeah … don’t worry.

  39. jonevans83 says: Aug 6, 2013 4:37 PM

    Peyton looks like a cracked out charlie sheen

  40. llcriticll says: Aug 6, 2013 4:45 PM

    we can say all we want… but that is a close family…. and many of us would kill for that

  41. bubbybrister/shovelpass says: Aug 6, 2013 4:47 PM

    Its hard to do, but this is even worse than…

  43. praetorian12 says: Aug 6, 2013 5:11 PM

    If you’re bagging on this commercial because it’s “awful,” duh! It’s called satire….

  44. judsonjr says: Aug 6, 2013 5:28 PM

    Archie looks like a 70 year old Corky Thatcher in that wig.

  45. grantashe11 says: Aug 6, 2013 5:34 PM

    HILARIOUS! You guys that are bashing on the Manning’s are haters. Two HOF QB’s, from a great family, that avoid all the drama athletes get into these days.


  46. greenbaysucks says: Aug 6, 2013 5:51 PM

    glad you called out the total rip off of all things Samberg/Timberlake/Lonely Island. Original ideas are always funnier.

  47. nolagirl says: Aug 6, 2013 6:13 PM

    Dem Nola boiz B funE!

  48. fafaflunky says: Aug 6, 2013 7:11 PM

    is it me or does eli look like schreech..

  49. keylimelight says: Aug 6, 2013 7:22 PM

    “Look at this guy usin’ his phone as a phone! Ya’ phone ain’t fa callin’, ya phone’s fa footballin’.”

    That’s funny stuff, period.

    Actually, to me he looks like Keith Richards on steroids.

    All y’all hatin’ on these guys need to get a life. The world would be a better place if people were as willing to laugh at themselves like these guys. Especially Archie.

  52. silverhornet says: Aug 6, 2013 8:07 PM

    Eli looks tanned or something…

  53. morgusthemagnificent says: Aug 6, 2013 9:08 PM

    Eli looks like smouse. And if you don’t know who smouse is, i suggest checking him out on YouTube

  54. bighurt228 says: Aug 7, 2013 11:42 PM

    Do we have to spend another season, looking at mannings puss every commercial break?? How much money does this dude need?? WTF

  55. charmcitychampions says: Aug 8, 2013 12:12 PM

    How can Peyton be amusing and entertaining and his little douchey brother be soooo annoying. Eli has that face that most people see and just want to punch.
