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.
