Manning brothers rap one of best NFL commercials of all time



Do not miss the Mannings and their rap. Seriously. You must see it.

If you haven't seen this yet, you must watch it: Peyton and Eli Manning have outdone themselves with a hysterical, so-bad-it's-good rap -- yes a rap -- to promote DirecTV and "football on your phone."


This is undoubtedly one of the five best NFL-related commercials I've ever seen, and other than the Mean Joe Greene/Coke commercial I'm not remembering the other three off the top of my head. There are several great lines, but the one where Eli Manning rips on Alexander Graham Bell ("Who cares? Dude's dead!") and Archie Manning's surprise appearance are among the highlights.

Note to all big-time pro athletes: Making fun of yourself is almost always the way to go for a likable commercial. (That's one reason why Newton's commercial with the little kid warming up his arm for Play 60 is the best one he has done. Here the Mannings do it beautifully -- with the help of some very talented writers, a great director and some killer wigs. This is a commercial that will be talked about for years.

Good to see NFL players continue to push the NFL thug/Rap mentality....

Please tell me you've seen the Manning's "FOOTBALL COPS" commercial ... dare I say, perhaps even better than the rap.

That was absolutely hilarious!!!! I love these guys' commercials. Wiley get a life. No one's pushing anything. Did you say that about that classless racist Elvis when he was shaking his hips like a dime store hussy?

@Wiley Coyote maybe they should re enact Coopers behavior at a country concert

Newton's Play60 commercial is a hoot.

You know, they say to "show your friends", but I'm pretty sure that the NFL's intellectual property policy specifically prohibits that.

This is stupid. I vote for the "Uncle Drew" w/Kyrie Irvin as best sports commercial.

They are so stiff in that commercial, I can't even believe you think it's good. Do you even know what they are trying to spoof in it?

This is just a rip-off of the Timberlake skit on SNL, D*(# In A Box.
