Wow, some people are completely pissed off about this new DirecTV ad featuring David Spade and the late Chris Farley. Farley’s role is spliced together from his movie Tommy Boy and David Spade appears to be having a conversation with him.
We’ve had everyone from Fred Astaire to Nat King Cole peddling soda — and don’t believe for a second that we won’t see Michael Jackson doing the same in the next few years — so I don’t understand all the controversy. If the estate is being paid, why shouldn’t dead dudes sell stuff? Tacky or okay? (Certainly not funny.)
