CreepyFest 2009: Chris Farley in David Spade's DirecTV commercial
The new DirecTV commercial, in which David Spade watches Chris Farley’s “Fat Guy in a Little Coat” scene from Tommy Boy while appearing to exist in the same room as Farley, is freaking me out. I loved that movie, but can’t decide if this a sweet homage to a sexy moment or semi-disrespectful exploitation of the dead. Anyone remember last October’s Poltergeist-spoofing ad featuring child star Heather O’Rourke, who passed away in 1988? You stay classy, DirecTV!
