The Direct TV Cartoon ads target those who steal cable connections and pirate TV shows. The ads feature different types of events you may see on a Direct TV pay-per-view channel, but balanced on a tightrope to demonstrate the fragility of the connection.

The funny cartoons feature a boxing match, basketball game, concert and baseball game all carefully balanced on a thin rope. The idea behind the Direct TV cartoon ads is to remind viewers of the perks of actually buying the channels and not resorting to pirating.
