Bill Clinton Just Revealed His Favorite TV Commercial

It’s not one of Barack Obama’s campaign spots.

During his speech to the ad industry at Cannes this evening, Clinton said, according to Adweek:

“My favorite ads in the United States are those ads encouraging people to switch from cable to DirecTV. You have a problem. Something disastrous happens. You don’t get along with your daughter. She winds up having an alternative lifestyle, marries a guy with too many tattoos. She ends up having a child who wears a dog collar. Now, you have a granddaughter with a dog collar. Switch to DirecTV. … They’re the most hilarious ads I’ve ever seen.”

It’s a grandson, Bill. But still, pretty good recollection.

The gape-mouthed execs at DirecTV all just collectively sharted with glee.

Expect a Clinton-riffing DirecTV spot to be on air within a month.

Me, I’m not crazy about the campaign, but it is pretty entertaining.

DirecTV’s ad agency is Grey New York.
