World of Tanks "Teensy House Buyers" (2017) :15 (USA)

Along with Real Awful Moms this delightfully screwball spot for World of Tanks will air in-between the first and second quarters of the Super Bowl. From the rhyming names Kerry and Derrick, to the over-the-top show's host who inexplicably wears a tool belt, everything about this satirical show, Teensy House Buyers, is spot on. Then of course the tank crushes the house. Perhaps I'm giving it more credit than it deserves but "In a world of tanks, tanks rule," is positively a giant middle finger to TV culture and advertising in general.

Check out some of the other parody commercials that aren't airing during the Super Bowl but are just as hilarious, including one for Stiffedra (easy enough to figure out what that one's about) and Fantasy Sports Bros.
