Manning Brothers' New Rap Is All About Fantasy Football (Video)

By    |   Monday, 11 Aug 2014 04:07 PM

The Manning brothers Peyton and Eli have released another rap video, this one fantasizing about fantasy football, with plenty of dream-focused ideas for making football even better.

Apparently the Manning brothers' football fantasies include things like catching a football that then opens up to reveal nacho cheese, or an “endzone that ends in a waterfall,” in this DirectTV ad for a new football fantasy channel.

While hilarious in its own right (TMZ called it “so bad, it’s good”), the Manning brothers' video serves as the introduction to DirecTV’s Fantasy Zone channel.

“It brings you the real-time fantasy stats, highlights, projections, and updates you need to dominate your league all season long. Powered by NFL.com Fantasy Football,” DirecTV said on its website.

Posted Monday, the brothers' rap video had more than 200,000 views by the early afternoon, and AdWeek proclaimed that “DirecTV Strikes Gold Again.”

Chris Johnson and “Broadway” Joe Namath both pop up in the video, and Namath is even seen nuzzling someone’s mom in the kitchen while she cooks.

This rap video is a follow-up to one the Manning brothers did last year called "Football on Your Phone."

“It's not dissimilar in spirit from Toyota's Swagger Wagon joke-rap work, which also made a recent comeback after a much longer hiatus,” AdWeek wrote. “But the new DirecTV ad manages to be less cringeworthy, probably by being more insane. So, extra points to the broadcast brand's agency, Grey New York, for not dropping the ball on the sequel.”

Not all agreed with TMZ that the video blurred that line between good and bad.

“The fact that people think this is funny makes me feel very depressed. The dumbing-down of America is more or less complete,” one commenter wrote on NFL.com.

More than a few admitted that the much-reiterated “Fantasy Fantasy Football Fantasy” stuck in their heads.

“Well, that was outrageous.... And now stuck in my head,” one person wrote.
