IF you watched any football over the weekend, you may have noticed an ad or two… or four thousand dedicated to daily fantasy sports companies DraftKings and FanDuel.  Earlier this year we prophesied that an advertising siege from these companies was coming given the daily fantasy boom and just how much money is in this completely-legal-and-totally-not-gambling-but-still-kinda-gambling enterprise.  And it just so happens that DraftKings spent more money on television advertising than any other company recently, including giants like AT&T, Warner Brothers, and McDonald’s.

And what better occasion to continue this advertising blitzkrieg than the first Sunday of the NFL season, where there were more minutes spent on DraftKings and FanDuel ads than actual football.  (That may be hyperbole, but it may not be.)  There is simply no escape from DraftKings or FanDuel ads and our only hope is that they will at least continue through 2016 and buy up all the time that would normally be spent on political ads.

As always, these are Real Tweets from Real People…
