'Creepy' Rob Lowe Gets Hilarious Revenge on Folks Who Don't Like His Ads

Rob Lowe has done a series of ads for DirectTV over the past several months that have poked some serious fun at us losers who still subscribe to cable TV instead of satellite. Comcast in particular was perturbed, and the cable-provider recently appealed to the National Advertising Division, who decided that the Rob Lowe ads were misleading.


Apparently some people don't have a funny bone. Or maybe Comcast is jealous they didn't think of the idea first? Anyway, the NAD can't force DirectTV to take the ads off the air, but they can suggest that "the company discontinue the catchphrase 'Don't be like this me. Get rid of cable and upgrade to DirecTV' because it "conveyed a comparative and unsupported superiority message."

Uh ... I'm pretty sure that's the hilarious, hyperbolic point of these commercials. Only weird, dumb, uncool, trailer trash people would continue to use cable, so why be like that, right? It's called humor, people.
