Just saw this on Yahoo: DirecTV Resurrects the Dead In Questionable Ad?s - Yahoo! TV Blog Personally I don't have a problem with it. It's actually quite a funny commercial, imo. Though at the same time I can see why it doesn't sit well with some. I think that if they have the proper consent to continue to use the actors footage, then it's ok with me. Next thing you know, people will start getting upset when they show films on TV with deceased actors in them. That'll be one sad sad day.
