Peyton Manning sings with brother in rap music TV ad

Published Add your comment

Peyton Manning and Eli Manning have starred in a spoof rap music TV advert for Direct TV - but don't expect to see 'Easy-Eli' and his rap partner for too much longer.

The New York giants quarterback insists he'll be sticking to his regular job as one of the NFL's most efficient passers despite the popularity of the clip.

Eli, alongside older brother Peyton Manning, are the stars of the 'Football on you phone' music video.

It's clocked up more than 2 million views since it was uploaded to YouTube on August 6, and features the duo in 80s gear and wigs.

"I think I will stay with my day job and keep playing football for as long as possible," said Manning at Giants practice.

"A one and done. A one-hit wonder, probably."

It reminds us of a Saturday Night Live sketch - a show that Peyton has appeared on - only slightly less funny. Don't get us wrong, it's great to see NFL stars have a little fun off the field, and the Manning brothers are great sports.

But if we talking athletes in TV commercials - we prefer this one, or even this one.

Anyway, check out the Manning brothers in the Direct TV ad below and tell us what you think in the comment box…
