Peyton and Eli Manning Channel Their Inner 2 Chainz in New DirecTV Commercial

Which Manning is which?

It’s hard to tell who is who in this picture, but we do know one thing: Peyton and Eli are shooting a new DirecTV commercial, and they are going HAM.

According to TMZ, the commercial is being filmed in New Orleans, but honestly, the only thing that matters is the image of these two brothers wearing full rapper regalia.

The brother on the left (TMZ thinks it’s Eli; I believe it’s Peyton) is sporting a Kanye West-ian red vest and a mullet, and he looks as though he’s dropping some hot, Sunday Ticket-related lines. 

On the right, we have Eli (or so I believe), whose wardrobe also has a rocker-ish skinny jean vibe. 

The one thing both brothers have in common here is the wearing of chains, which must be searing the flesh around their wholesome necks, considering the Mannings are the last family in football one could ever associate with bling.

Whatever this new commercial spot is, chances are it will be entertaining. Anything these two do in an acting format makes for spun television gold.

Proof: Peyton’s first DirecTV commercial, when the fledgling actor first cut his teeth on lines like “You think all I care about is football?” and “Oh yeah.”

Then Eli got into the act with “NFL Football Cops.” The spot featured Peyton as “Mike Tahoe” and Eli as “C.J. Hunter.” It was a story of snitches, betrayal and “football caaaaaaawwwps.” 

Let's just hope for this new spot that Peyton and Eli's rap duo doesn't use 2 Chainz's original rap name. The "Tity Boiz" probably won't move a lot of Sunday Ticket subscriptions.

Justice is a team sport.
