UK Athletics burns Louisville with this DirectTV spoof

The video could’ve been much better but the fact that UK teased Louisville for living in the past is enough for me.

Go Cats.

    i’d rather drive around in the batmobile than end up in a roadside ditch or have a grandkid with a dogcollar … i think they could have a little rougher ending for this tard fan

    So let me see if I understand. If I go to Louisville, I’ll cruise UK’s campus in the Batmobile? How is this a bad thing?

    My guess is the Batmobile was on campus or nearby (for God knows what reason). And some epicsexual in the UK marketing department decided they wanted to work it into a commercial. And they did so…horribly.

    It would have been much more effective with Anthony Davis cruising in the Batmobile, with Jon Hood as Robin, and running over the UofL student (killing him, of course).

    Cool idea, but I would love to drive the bat mobile around any college campus…still, Louisville sucks. Go Cats

    I am crying about this video on Twitter as we speak please remember that Louisville does not exist folks.

    I will tell my buddy Drew Deener to make fun of this video tomorrow.

    A worse ending: show him on U of L’s campus. I’m pretty sure someone would take the bat mobile at gunpoint if they did that though.

    Pretty Epic…though the guy was missing his line beard

    Kudos for getting a Batmobile for the shoot. I think where this video falls slightly short is that it doesn’t really end of a bad note like the DirecTV ads do. Like a lot of people have already commented, driving around campus in a Batmobile is actually a sweet thing.

    What makes the DirecTV ads so funny is that those people end up beaten up in a ditch, hairless at a bus stop in Vegas, playing Platoon with Charlie Sheen, etc.

    #18 has the right idea. The video would’ve been funnier had it ended with:

    When you cruise campus in the Batmobile you get car jacked.
    Don’t get car jacked in the Batmobile.

    Anyhoo. Go Cats.

    Makes L1C4 look kind of epic in comparison of marketing ideas.

    # 23,,,,yep,,the pressure is all on you guys next year. Enjoy it . By the way,,a couple of question . When was the last time UofL had the number 1 recruiting class in the nation ? Were you one of the guys that was calling for Pitino’s ass about three weeks before the tourny ? Change of heart ? You will be calling for his ass again next year when he fails to bring that trophy home to Louisville.

    Old Batmobile is lame. New Batmobile is badass.

    23) Bringing back guys because they aren’t ready for the NBA is nothing to crow about. And the yearly boasts about your experience beating our youth haven’t panned out, either.

    Once again be yours? When was it?

    We’re also not done recruiting, are also adding Harrow, and our recruits are better than your current players.

    You all are so accustomed to the spin your coach sends out that you’re dizzy and can’t talk sense.

    UL and IU have not won a NCAA championship since the 3pt. line has been in college basketball.

    I agree, the Batmobile itself is way cool. I guess they are trying to make the guy out as some kind of loser who thinks he is Batman. Would have been more effective to make him a zit-faced trekkie. Either that, or show him living in his mom’s basement and actually having to ATTEND the University of Louisville. Maybe have him drive to car in a beat up Honda Civic with 28 inch rims and a fart can muffler.

    Cruising campus in the Batmobile would be awesome!
