Commercial Breaks: Keep calm and carry on

These adverts for across-the-pond telly providers DirecTV are a harsh lesson in how quickly your life can go preposterously tits up if you don’t keep a tight grip on things. Witness the men who get frustrated when their cable TV service goes a bit wrong and how that moment of frustration can quickly result in complete and utter disaster.

They’re perfect if you’re the sort of person who doesn’t want to wake up in a ditch, have a grandson with a dog collar on or find yourself living in a house with a bunch of stray animals. If our reader research is correct, that’s about 70% of you…

    I have Freesat and yet I'm what they would define as an "undesireable", so surely they're talking out of their arses?

    Get rid of cable then get out for some fresh air and exercise you fat fucker. Fuck direct TV, it's all shit anyway.
