DirecTV "versus" by Grey New York

Rob Lowe, the West Wing actor, is featured alongside creepy and unattractive alter egos in a funny campaign for DirecTV.

Grey New York created the ads for the broadcast service. In each ad, Lowe represents DirecTV while his creepy or unattractive alter ego (again, played by Lowe) represents the competitor cable service.
