According to AdWeek, Bill Clinton recently gave a speech on creativity at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes and mentioned his favorite commercial:
"My favorite ads in the United States are those ads encouraging people to switch from cable to DirecTV," he said, as the crowd laughed. "You have a problem. Something disastrous happens. You don't get along with your daughter. She winds up having an alternative lifestyle, marries a guy with too many tattoos. She ends up having a child who wears a dog collar. Now, you have a granddaughter with a dog collar. Switch to DirecTV. ... They're the most hilarious ads I've ever seen."That's me, in this spot:
-Tom, who would like to note once again for the record that his job is weird.
