Eli and Peyton Manning are rapping in a commercial now (Video)

There's a reason that Eli and Peyton Manning are good pitchmen. The quarterbacking brothers have a good comedic delivery, and they don't take themselves seriously.

And, they push the whole "don't take themselves seriously" thing to the extreme in their new commercial.

Eli and Peyton are rap about the multi-platform capability of DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket in "Football on Your Phone," and even though it is ridiculous, it will probably stick in your head.

There's plenty of goofy lyrics to go around, like this:

Peyton: "Look at this guy using his phone as a phone."
Eli: "Your phone ain't for calling."
Both: "Your phone's for footballing!"

There's also a line about spilling milk on a woman's blouse – ah, just go watch the video. It's funny.

I mean, it produced this image:
