If you are on this site, you are more than likely a fan of sports. You more than likely watch sports on television. If that is the case, then you have probably seen the commercials for daily fantasy sports leagues like DraftKings and FanDuel.
In these commercials, you usually see people talking about how they have won “a ton of money” playing these leagues. While that may be true and I do believe that Chris Prince has won over $700,000, I also believe that there are a lot more people that have lost a ton more money.
In this video, these two brothers either believe that or have actually experienced it. John and Stephen Driscoll from New Jersey made a hilarious FanDuel spoof television ad titled “FanDuel: Fantasy Losers” and it’s about exactly what you are thinking.
Just like any weight loss, hair restoration, or an “As Seen on TV” product, FanDuel has the disclaimer that these are “real people, not actors.” While that may be partially true, you can’t tell me that some of these people haven’t been slipped a little extra something for going on national television and talking up what some people call “legal gambling.”
Even after watching this video, I will still continue playing. Fans are usually on either side of the fence about this. There is no in between.
