Video: Peyton and Eli as old-school rappers

The quarterbacking brothers wig out in a new commercial for DirecTV

Video: Peyton and Eli as old-school rappers


Are you ready for some old school? Return with us now to the hair and rap styles of the ‘80s. Smooth, baby.

NFL stars Peyton and Eli Manning, the quarterbacks for respectively the Denver Broncos and the New York Giants, settle into some bad wigs and worse rhymes as they extol the NFL Sunday Ticket package for satellite provider DirecTV.

The Mannings aren't going to replace Andy Samberg's Lonely Island crew anytime soon. Doesn’t seem like a lot of thought went into the rap, but it’s great to see the guys’ father, Archie Manning (a quarterback for the New Orleans Saints in his day) reigning over the Latin Quarter again.

Nice hair, Arch.
