DirecTV’s Phil Shifley Spotted at MLB’s All-Star Game

Guy who faked his own death is living dangerously

For a guy who faked his own death, Phil Shifley isn't keeping much of a low profile. The character from Grey's celebrated ad campaign for DirecTV (Bill Clinton's favorite!) has been all over Facebook, posting humorous updates seeking advice (for a friend!) about changing one's appearance and giving people the slip. And then this week, he was spotted at Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, with Joe Buck calling him out by name (see below). The commercial aired, and then the Fox cameras cut to Shifley at the game, sipping a soda and shifting around uncomfortably in his seat. Seems like a pretty bad decision for Phil to attend a premier sporting event like that. Then again, at least no one was watching.
