A Tale Of Two Spots

Here’s a recent Dish Network spot made by the upstart “crowdsourcing” agency Victors And Spoils.

Here’s a DirecTV spot made by a “BDA”, Grey New York.

Two competing spots, for competing services, made by two very different types of ad agencies. So is this a good comparison of the creative output of these business models? You be the judge.
My conclusion? I’m not interested in either satellite service. Too many trees over my house for that. But I do want a miniature giraffe.
