This commercial starts with a boxer with his championship belt over his shoulder. He is standing in a doorway watching two kangaroos box on an ocean-side dock. His name is "The Truth" and his entourage likes to encourage him by saying, "That's the truth, Truth". When he goes inside his house, a woman comes to stand next to him and a big portrait of himself. A little kid then punches the butler and shouts, "That's the truth, Truth". Boxer: Truth? It's big, baby. Entourage: That's the truth, Truth! Boxer: 23 knockouts and wins big too. Entourage: That's the truth, Truth! Ain't that the truth. Boxer: So when The Truth heard that DirecTV was offering the biggest, most popular TV package at the best price ever - let's just say The Truth knows a knockout when he sees one.
