David Spade Cashes in on Chris Farley's Memory With DirecTV Ads
If you've turned on the television lately, you've probably seen the satellite provider's advertising spot that places an older Spade into the classic "fat guy in a little coat" scene from 'Tommy Boy.' Instead of making us laugh, the commercial makes our stomachs turn. While Farley does his bit (Trust us, it's still funny), Spade laments being stuck in a hotel with his buddy and basic cable when he could be at home watching DirecTV. Frankly, it's just unsettling to watch. What makes it worse is that this isn't the first time the company has used a dead star in a commercial.
Look Spade, we understand times are tough (especially if you're an aging comedian). But just let Farley's memory rest in peace. We'd rather watch you in a 'Joe Dirt' sequel, and believe us, that's saying something. [From: BuzzFeed and TV Squad]
