Much Inspiration, No?

We’ve all seen these DIRECTV commercials featuring “Gregor” the Russian billionaire.

In fact, even 7-year-old boys without cable have watched these ads.

Gregor? Igor? It’s not important. What is important is that the television viewing dreams of grateful young Americans are being realized thanks to fictional Russian billionaires.

Unfortunately, this postscript was cut off Gabriel’s letter:

“P.S. If you could hook me up with one of those petite lap giraffes, that be epic win!”

Thanks for sharing, Shelly.

And Gabriel: Opulence, you has it.

  1. Gabriel’s mom trained him well…writing thank you notes (especially to complete strangers) is awesome!


  2. Oh my sweet goodness – that is awesome.

    Whoever this Gabriel is? I want to take him to lunch.

    Because that letter? Deserves a sandwich.

  3. Hey that kid knows what he talking about! Those commercials are great!!
    Good one Gabriel!
    I want a mini giraffe too!

  4. Hilarious! Good job.
