DirecTV's Nonsense Ad

Have you seen DIRECTV's latest ad?

The one with Christopher Lloyd as Dr. Emmit Brown from the Back to the Future movies?

Yeah, the one where he "forgets" to tell Martyabout DirecTV's expanding HD line up. The commercial endswith him saying "Impossible? That's what they said about my flux capacitor."

Which I take to mean that yes, it is impossible because the flux capacitor doesn't exist, it was a fucking movie prop.

Nicely done, DirecTV. Make bold claims backed up by utter falsehoods that most people won't recognize as false. Quality spin.
