Plot / Description"DIRECTV - What's Cable Worse Than? Upgrade & Record 5 Shows at Once"
This commercial shows two men trying to watch TV when a "Recording Conflict" message pops up on their screen. They start to talk about things that are less annoying than cable such as:
* Going to the dentist and having him sneeze in your mouth while it's being held open by a dental appliance.
* Getting bitten on the finger by a giant tortoise at the zoo.
One of the guys tells the other than he needs to upgrade to DirecTV to get their Genie DVR which is represented by a beautiful woman who snaps her fingers to make shows record without conflict. They then talk about things that DirecTV is better than such as:
* Riding a dirt bike while a hot woman weilding a flaming crossbow shoots into the air creating a flaming tiger explosion.
