GALLERY 16: Directv - Maradona

OK, so perhaps it's a little cruel to show this ad but we are a British-based publication and as such, can't help feeling just a little smug about our victory over Argentina and their shock early exit from the World Cup. If anything though, the ad highlights the enormous risks involved of throwing all your money at one event in which there is no guarantee of success. See also the half dozen French ads starring Zinedane Zidane. Be warned.
