It's nice to know that no matter what us regular human beings accomplish in life, the best thing to ever happen to us, according to football legends Eli & Peyton Manning, is DirecTv's new fantasy football channel, Fantasy Zone.
The brothers are seen in the new commercial, spitting some pretty ill — and when I say ill, I mean terribly basic — rhymes, wearing flat rimmed hats and expressing that even in their wildest fantasies, they're still just football stars.
Oh, and arguably the best part — the scene they're surely regretting, is when Eli floats above his house with an auto tuned voice, and a horse comes into focus, grows wings and lifts him off into space, where he meets his father, Archie, who's just casually floating by... I'm sorry, rewind, what?!
Sure, the tune is pretty catchy and will most likely get football fans buzzing for the new channel, but the video itself is still pretty awkward considering both of the Manning brothers have little to no musical ability. Either way, the video provided me with the perfect amount of humor to get my day going.
