Bill Clinton loves those ads I hate

Speaking at the Cannes Ad Festival in France yesterday Bill Clinton described his favorite ad campaign. It's that stupid one by DirecTV in which a random person's cable isn't working, one thing leads to another and then that person ends up reenacting movie scenes with Charlie Sheen. Or something else dumb.

"My favorite ads in the United States are those ads encouraging people to switch from cable to DirecTV," he said, as the crowd laughed. "You have a problem. Something disastrous happens. You don't get along with your daughter. She winds up having an alternative lifestyle, marries a guy with too many tattoos. She ends up having a child who wears a dog collar. Now, you have a granddaughter with a dog collar. Switch to DirecTV. … They're the most hilarious ads I've ever seen."

God, I hate those commercials.
