The Better Business Bureau Isn’t Too Happy About Those Rob Lowe DirecTV Commercials

Apparently, some of the claims made in the ads rankled Comcast, and the cable behemoth lodged a complaint with the Council of Better Business Bureaus’ National Advertising Division, […] The oversight group took issue with several specific claims. It said that DirecTV couldn’t prove that it has better signal reliability (“Creepy Rob Lowe”), shorter customer service wait times (“Painfully Awkward Rob Lowe”) or better picture and sound quality (“Far Less Attractive Rob Lowe”) than cable. The company also couldn’t support an implied claim (“Scrawny Arms Rob Lowe”) that its sports programming beats cable. – Jason Tabrys, UPROXX
