30-Day NFL Warning: Manning Brothers Don Terrible Wigs and Sing R&B in the Name of DirecTV

What’s that? You were wondering exactly how many days until the start of the NFL season? Well, you’re in luck! We here at the Triangle are set to spend the next month providing a daily reason to get excited about pro football’s return.

Nothing says “Football is coming” like Eli and Peyton peddling electronics. The latest is a two-and-a-half-minute DirecTV spot/R&B number that features Alexander Graham Bell jokes, a purple Cadillac, the second-worst haircut of Peyton’s life, and Archie dressed as Michael Douglas as Liberace. Thirty days, people. It’s all happening.
