Farley, Spade commercial: Who benefits?

Heard three radio shows talk about this commercial today, so you may already be tired of it.

The words “creepy” and “bad taste” and “so what” have been bandied around.

I’m not sure what I think. On the one hand, the part where Spade is talking to the camera (“I’m here with Tons-of-Fun …”) with the Farley body double dancing in the foreground seems a little tilts it to the creepy factor.

On the other hand, ending with “Never gets old” seems to redeem it a bit.

Either way, I do know one thing: Direct TV is LOVING this … (By the way, that’s the answer to the question asked in the title, in case it was too subtle.)

You Tube note: there may be clearer versions of this online, but this one was posted by welcometofarleyville.blogspot.com, so I thought it was appropriate to use it.
