Peyton and Eli Manning are no strangers to television hilarity. Now they have taken it up a notch.
The brothers rap their way through a digital advertisement for a new DirecTV feature allowing customers to watch NFL football on their smartphones.
In the video, the Manning brothers are dressed as one would expect the Mannings to dress if they were professional artists. Eli is sporting a permanent fro not unlike Justin Timberlake's once-upon-a-time do, and Peyton's get-up ranks somewhere between David Bowie and Tom Cruise.
For those who are unaware how to use this new product, the Mannings instruct. Football on your phone is suitable when on a date with Simone, when taking out a small loan, when on your throne or when buttering a scone. It's also a completely valid excuse for mistakenly (or purposefully) spilling milk on someone else's shirt, or at least that's what the video says.
Viewers beware — you won't be able to get the tune out of your head after you watch the video. Fair warning.
This is hardly the first time Peyton and Eli Manning have done something funny for television, though it is one of the few Internet-only endeavors the brothers have pursued.
Peyton Manning especially has done a number of television spots, advertising MasterCard, Sprint, Buick, Papa John's Pizza and Gatorade, among others. His stint with MasterCard has been quite extensive — he was involved in more than 10 individual Mastercard advertisements, all of which were short, 30-second spots.
For his part, Eli Manning spent a lot of time with Toyota, but he has done far fewer commercials than his older brother.
Here is a compilation of the top 10 Manning commercials of all time.

This little gem was one of several Eli Manning commercials with Toyota, and says a lot of the power of peer pressure.
After all, when Eli Manning asks you what your wife said to you, you've got to speak up.
Another Peyton Manning commercial hit, this one follows the very familiar mold of other MasterCard "priceless" commercials, but Manning does well to put his own flair on the series.
After all, what's better to give your friend at Christmas time than your used mouth guard?
Let's be realistic — every sports fan wishes he or she knew what is was like to suit up and take the field for the big game.
How many professional athletes wonder what it would be like to hit the board room, cubicle or trading floor every day? Likely not many. Regardless, there's no doubt we non-professional athletes would appreciate a few fans just like Peyton in this commercial.
Peyton makes throwing a football as easy as elbowing your brother and flicking a booger, which gives unique insight into the atmosphere of the Manning home when Peyton and Eli were young. No word on how mom felt about this description, however.
It's likely Manning shared a bit too much of what happens to rookies at NFL training camps with this one, but then again, maybe not. After all, who hasn't been wrapped in duct tape and thrown in a locker on their first day at work?
DirecTV and NBC were promoting an upcoming football game between the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants, and this is what became of it.
Archie Manning must have figured out where Peyton went, because the Colts quarterback did play in the so-called "Manning Bowl."
One of many MasterCard spots in which Payton Manning has appeared, it's pretty obvious everyone in the NFL's cities (not Indianapolis at the time) are not that fond of the four-time NFL MVP.
Based on Manning's responses, it's difficult to tell if he's purposefully optimistic and friendly or just totally oblivious to the fact that no one likes him. Either way, it's funny.
Admittedly, this one isn't a commercial, but that doesn't change the fact that it's hilarious. For the 2009 ESPY awards, Peyton Manning and ESPN produced a short clip in which Manning is seen talking on his phone to the likes of former North Korean President Kim Jong-Il, Steven Spielberg, Michael Jackson, Prince, Martin Scorcese, Britney Spears and Chesley Sullenberger, also known as "Sully," the airline pilot who landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in 2009.
Who knew Peyton wrote "Womanizer”?
This was one of the few Eli Manning commercials that was really funny, and it had nothing to do with Manning himself. The salesman in this video makes the whole thing work.
Although, given the infamous "Butt Fumble," I think Sanchez will be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't know who he is and who won't make fun of him for it. Kudos to him, though, for being such a good sport at the time.
If you've been depressed about your weight recently, don't listen to what Peyton Manning has to tell you. You'll probably just end up depressed.
Other than maybe "Football on your Phone," this video is probably the funniest Peyton Manning video ever, and it was really hard to find. Even worse, all I can do is include a link. The person who shared the video originally on YouTube disabled embedding.
