Plot / Description

"DirecTV TV Commercial - Man in a Shoe" 
This commercial begins with a miserable man who is in a house full of kids. Not just three, or four, of five kids, but hundreds of children. He is trying to watch the basketball game on TV, but it's incredibly loud and distracting, and kids are asking to watch cartoons instead. He puts down the remote, picks up his tablet, and starts to watch the game on that instead. He walks through the house where kids are playing and getting into trouble everywhere, and goes into the bathroom and locks the door to watch his game in peace. Unfortunately, as soon as he sits down, kids jump out of cabinets, the bathtub, and everywhere else. He leaves the bathroom and goes upstairs to the "roof" to watch his basketball, and it is only then that we see he is a man who lives in a shoe like the nursery rhyme: 
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. 
She had so many children, she didn't know what to do
