Deutsch Resurrects Chris Farley in Somewhat Gauche DirecTV Spot

By Kiran Aditham 

While Deutsch’s DirecTV spots over the past couple of years have had their moments, reviving dead celebs to shill for the brand seems a little cold (no pun intended). Following last year’s Poltergeist-based advert starring Craig T. Nelson and the long-since-deceased Heather O’ Rourke, we’re being treated again to another ad launched suspiciously around Halloween featuring the late, great Chris Farley and David Spade in a scene from Tommy Boy. Maybe Spade just needs the money, but it leaves us feeling a little skeeved out.
