List of Saturday Night Live commercial parodies

The following is a partial list of Saturday Night Live commercial parodies. On Saturday Night Live (SNL), a parody advertisement is commonly shown after the host's opening monologue. Many of the parodies were produced by James Signorelli. Fast food, beer, feminine hygiene products, toys, medications, financial institutions, and automobiles have been frequent targets.

The commercial parodies have even targeted the SNL producers. A self-parody commercial featured "The Best of the First 20 Minutes", a parody of Broadway Video's series of SNL compilation videos. It offered a compilation of bits from the Cameron Diaz/Smashing Pumpkins September 1998 episode before that episode had even finished.

In 1991, Kevin Nealon and Victoria Jackson hosted a clip show featuring many commercials entitled Saturday Night Live Goes Commercial. In early 1999, Will Ferrell hosted a follow-up special. In late 2005 and in March 2009, the special was updated, featuring commercials created since the airing of the original special.

#[edit]

  • 16 and Pregnant Spinoffs — A November 2010 ad finds MTV cashing in with spinoffs inspired by 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, such as My Super Sweet 16 and Pregnant, America's Best Pregnant Dance Crew, Wild n Out with a Special Guest: A Baby, an edition of Cribs that feature baby cribs, and I'm Snooki and Pregnant. At the end, the MTV logo comes on with MTV: Maternity Television.[1] (In an odd case of satirical prophecy, Snooki announced to US Magazine in March 2012 that yes, she was pregnant and engaged.)[2]
  • 1-800-FlowersKristin Wiig promotes the floral retailer as a way to show love for the mother (Kate McKinnon) who's always been there for her... even when Mom's at her most annoying.[3]
  • 24-Hour Energy for Dating Actresses — Having an actress for a girlfriend, and dealing with their quirks, can leave a man drained and exhausted. Luckily, this once-daily supplement gives men the energy they need to handle their girlfriends' constant rehearsing, mastering of foreign accents, emotional swings over callbacks, etc. Also promoted is a female version, "24-Hour Energy for Dating Comedians."[4]

A[edit]

  • Abilify for Candidates  – "Because not everyone can be President," this version of the atypical antipsychotic is specially formulated for candidates in the 2016 race for the presidency, among them Rick Santorum (Taran Killam) and Mike Huckabee (Bobby Moynihan).[5]

  • Action Cats – a parody of action-figure toys featuring plastic armor and weapons for live cats.[8]

  • Amazon.com — Husbands and kids can buy typical Mother's Day gifts (e.g. bed and bath items, a new washing machine) on the website... but moms use it to buy vibrating muscle massagers (which one daughter mistakes for a microphone in one scene) or the best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey (hard-copy or, so the husband doesn't have to know she's reading it, on Kindle).[16]

  • American Cancer Society – Season six public service commercial where a spokeswoman (Gail Matthius) promises to discuss breast cancer and perform a self-exam on herself in an honest and open manner, but the promise is broken when the spokeswoman is shown with a striker bar covering her chest and explains the details of her self-exam in euphemisms.[20]
  • American Dope Growers Union – Laraine Newman (and several SNL castmembers and writers) support American-grown marijuana and the farmers who grow it.[21]
  • American Express — This 2015 parody of the credit card's celebrity-driven ad campaign features guest host Chris Hemsworth recalling how people said he was too tall, too blonde, and too muscular to make it in show business. But, as he concludes, "if a jacked Australian with a perfect face can make it, anyone can."[22]

  • ...and More — Tina-Tina Chenuse (Jenny Slate) promotes her stores that stock personalized novelties. The skits have 3 elements: Tina-Tina introducing herself, "Hi-lo, I'm Tina-Tina Chenuse"; the store names always end with "and More" (e.g. "Car Horns and More"); and Tina-Tina exclaiming "Oh, my God" somewhere in the sketch.[24]

  • Annuale — Medicine that keeps women on a constant stream of hormones, allowing them only one period per year. And when that period comes, the user can become violent (Tina Fey wields an axe in the office), aggressive (Amy Poehler kicks her husband in the groin), hungry (Casey Wilson shovels an entire birthday cake down her mouth at a child's party), and sexually frustrated (Kristen Wiig French kisses her dog).[28]
  • Aron's List — an online service similar to Angie's List but lower in price, thanks to its roster of plumbers, carpenters, etc. who are on the "American Registry of Non-Violent Sex Offenders" (what the site's "Aron" acronym stands for).[29]
  • Asian-American Doll — A Barbie commercial parody featuring an Asian-American doll who has to be as bland as possible out of fear of offending Asians (until the announcer realizes that selling an Asian-American doll with a dog and a chef's hat touches on the stereotype of Asians eating dogs).
  • Ass Don't Smell — personal hygiene spray intended to keep one's buttocks smelling fresh and clean; a parody of feminine hygiene sprays.[30]
  • Autoscent — just as air fresheners deodorize the home, this product does the same for an automobile's internal combustion system; just spray it into the carborator every 800 miles, and your car's exhaust will smell like lilacs or pine forests.[31]
  • Autumn Fizz — "The Carbonated Douche".[32]

  • Bad Idea Jeans — a commercial featuring scenes of people discussing what can be considered "bad ideas" (for example, "Normally I wear protection, but then I thought, 'When am I gonna make it back to Haiti?'"). After each scene, white text on a black background reads "BAD IDEA". Each scene also zooms in on each person wearing said jeans.[36]
  • Bad Seed — a venomous, near-hysterical Nancy Reagan (Terry Sweeney) debunks rumors that her daughter Patti's novel, Home Front, is based on real life, and pitches her own book that she co-wrote with Stephen King.[37]

  • Bierhoff House of German Coats — German entrepreneurs (Fred Armisen and episode host Ben Affleck) sell bright orange winter coats to German tourists vacationing in New York City.[44]
  • Big Brawn Feminine Napkins — parodying Brawny paper towels (with a jingle that parodies the song "Big Bad John"), this ad shows giant lmberjack Will Ferrell turning pulp from wood into a super-absorbent (albeit rough-looking) menstruation pad. The ad is capped by Big Brawn literally tearing the roof from normal-sized Molly Shannon's house to deliver her the product.[45]
  • Big Red – a toy Viking figure that spins around, spraying red liquid from the horns of a stereotypical Viking helmet (absurdist parody of water sprinkler-type toys). Furthermore, the liquid is revealed to be hazardous, as evidenced by the thick utility gloves included in the package included to clean up the resulting mess.[46]
  • Bio-Flex – parody of exercise equipment commercials where Will Ferrell is attacked by a half-man/half-monkey creature, which is considered a workout.[47]
  • The Bitchslap Method – an infomercial promotes a self-help video course that teaches troubled married couples to bitch-slap their spouses into submission.[48]

  • Booty Bidness – rapper Ludacris (as himself) pitches a new line of women's businesswear with racy phrases on them, such as "Porn Star", "Bi-Curious", "Tasty" (written on the rear end of a skirt), and "Nympho".[50]

  • Brew Dude – a hat that dispenses beer for the college student who would rather party than study.[52]
  • Broadview Security – a parody of the actual Broadview Security commercials that infer that women living alone in large houses are the most likely to be victimized by any man she meets (including male family members, androgynous singer k.d. lang, and two kids using a trenchcoat to pose as an adult).[53]
  • Broderick & Ganz — An ad for a team of personal injury lawyers, with happy clients praising the work of the skilled Broderick (Kate McKinnon) and one disgruntled client (episode host Aziz Ansari) expressing clear disappointment over his being represented by the incompetent Ganz (Bobby Moynihan).[54]
  • Brogaine — A version of Rogaine designed for college students suffering from premature hair loss caused by the stress of college life ("because no one wants to the bald guy in the frat").[55]
  • BrokenCBS, seeking the award-winning glory that comedy-dramas Transparent and Orange is the New Black have earned, premieres this show centered around a family of professors (portrayed by Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong, and episode host Tom Hanks) who are all diagnosed with depression on the same day. The show is clearly dour and dramatic, but since it's 30 minutes in length, CBS considers it a comedy and promotes it in the same jovial way it promotes its lighter-in-tone sitcoms.[56]
  • The Bubble — This November 2016 ad promotes a proposed domed community with a diverse, progressive atmosphere (hybrid cars, used book stores, etc.) that will feel as if Donald Trump had never won the presidential election.[57]
  • Buddweiser Light — a parody of the Bud Light "Bring Out Your Best" ad campaign, featuring hockey player Joe Piscopo mentally readying himself against faceoff opponent Robin Williams. Piscopo says of Williams in the voiceover, "I can't believe my wife ran away with him," which inspires Piscopo to instigate a fight as soon as the puck is dropped. The ad ends with Williams and Piscopo sitting on the ice bloodied, gap-toothed, and enjoying a couple of beers.[58]
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer — a promo for The WB series announces that with Seinfeld leaving the air, Buffy Summers (episode host Sarah Michelle Gellar) would be moving to New York to become the "Elaine" to an un-dead Jerry, George, and Kramer, thus transforming Buffy into "A show about nothing... and vampires!"[59]
  • Bug-Off – Will Ferrell appears in this parody sketch of Roach Motels. Rather than simply killing a cockroach, this bug trap painfully tortures them and "gives them a lot to think about". The trap supposedly creates a signal that encourages the cockroach to enter, then adhesive glue holds the bug fast (much like a rat trap). Then, three tweezers stretch the legs in opposite directions til they snap off. Then a white-hot metal coil comes down and burns off the bug's reproductive glands of as well as making a sizable hole. Then the bug is beat senseless by its own dismembered legs. Finally, two pieces of cotton stuffed into the cockroach's orifices as food is dangled in front of it. Two kids are seen peering gleefully through a patented "viewing window".[60]
  • Buh-Weet Sings – All grown up, Buckwheat (Eddie Murphy) from the Our Gang/Little Rascals films has recorded a compilation of songs sung in his own and very personal style, such as "Fee Tines a Mady", "Una Panoonah Banka", "Wookin' Pa Nub" and, in a dedication to his friend Alfalfa, "Barbah ob Dabill".[61]
  • Burger Master – a fast food restaurant where people can get their burgers done any way they want—no matter how weird or disgusting the requests.[62]

  • Calvin Klein Jeans – A plus-sized Elizabeth Taylor (Joan Rivers) models CK Jeans, rambles on about her movie career, and snacks on some nearby food in this parody.[65]
  • Calvin Klein Underwear – CK spokesperson Justin Bieber (Kate McKinnon) appears in a trio of 2015 ads; though Justin says, "I'm a big boy now", he behaves immaturely, poses and preens for the camera, and leaves the female model appearing with him unimpressed.[66]

  • Caribbean Essence Bath Oil – foaming, scented bath enhancer that causes a West Indian man (Tracy Morgan) to pop up during the bath and carry his bathers across a beach.[68]
  • Carl Weathers for Governor – Following in the footsteps of his Predator co-stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Carl Weathers promotes himself to be the next governor in any state that will take him.[69]
  • Carter 'N Sons BBQ – A commercial for a barbecue pork restaurant produced in 2002 but aired seven years later, with disclaimers stating that the restaurant's "Swine Fever" marketing tagline is in no way connected to the then-recent swine flu (H1N1 virus) pandemic.[70]
  • Cartier Fidget Spinner — A 14-carat-gold, diamond-encrusted fidget spinner for the woman who is glamorous yet easily distracted.[71]
  • The Chameleon XLE – a luxury car on the inside, a dilapidated wreck on the outside—the better to deter the high risk of theft that accompanies luxury cars. The car features a simulated transmission fluid leak, mismatched hubcaps (and one exposed wheel painted school bus yellow), coat hanger antenna... and a supple leather-and-wood interior.[72]
  • Chantix — Two parodies for the prescription medication used to treat nicotine addiction and its advertising that uses "real people [with] real stories":
    • The first, from 2012, lists mental side effects that are worse than nicotine addiction itself, which user Kristen Wiig slowly discovers she has, much to husband Bill Hader's consternation (e.g. "If you notice changes in behavior such as a powerful, overwhelming desire to kill the person you love most, call your doctor right away.").[73]
    • The second ad, from 2018, emphasizes that Chantix user Kelly (Cecily Strong) is not an actress... although she's quick to correct that she once was, and spends the rest of the ad less praising Chantix and more resurrecting her long-dormant acting skills.[74]
  • cheapkids.net – a website dedicated to the sale of shoddy items for babies and toddlers for irresponsible parents.[75]
  • Chess for Girls! – a parody of the marketing of children's toys based on gender, this chess set (unrelated to the chess game in general) features pieces with Barbie doll-style bodies and chess piece heads, an accompanying dollhouse, beachwear, minivan, bubble blower, and so on. The tag line: "A classic game of strategy and wits... and bubbles!"[76]
  • Chewable Pampers – A line of Pampers diapers which contain flavor crystals that, once the diaper is soiled, turns into an edible treat.[77]
  • Chia Head – a parody of both the Chia Pet and Minoxidil; men with bald or receding hairlines use this product to give them nice green hair just like a Chia Pet. ("Not to be used in salads!")[78]
  • Chicago Improv — A promo for the latest series in producer Dick Wolf's Chicago-based TV franchise, with the city's improv comedy scene and those in it depicted in the same gritty, unflinching way as its firefighting and law enforcement worlds.[79]
  • Chonk - a clothing store for women that bears an unflattering name, with the announcer delivering a "gorgeous at any size" spiel that turns out to be a backhanded compliment, much to the models' dismay. Also featured is "Lil' Chonk" for tween girls (the young model's concerned mother ushers her out of camera range), and the menswear store "Normal Clothes", where men can make a quick trip to find clothes in their size.[80]
  • Chris Rock's White Person's Guide to Surviving The ApolloChris Rock, a veteran of Harlem's famed Apollo Theater, promotes his video that gives tips to aspiring white comedians and singers on how to win over the Apollo's vociferously critical audiences. Siobhan Fallon and guest host Rob Morrow appear in before-and-after footage.[81]
  • Cialis Turnt - Taran Killam demonstrates the effects of "the only pill that combats your erectile dysfunction while giving you that unbeatable hip-hop sensation of "getting turnt". Users are shown dancing wildly to music exclaiming "Everybody get turnt!" that resembles Lil Jon's song Turn Down for What (in the Hulu streaming version only. The original TV version actually had Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What").[82]
  • Citizens for a Better America – Dr. Swen Gazzara (Gilbert Gottfried) proves the value of hard work in America by asking Ronald Reagan to personally give him a "hum job".[83]
  • Clear-Rite – Karen (Kristen Wiig) speaks the praises of an "invisible" teeth retainer. The twist is that the product isn't real (it's superglue), Karen isn't her real name (it's Beth), and the ad isn't an ad (she's just practicing her pitch work before the bathroom mirror).[84]
  • Clearasil – Appearing in SNL's recurring Sprockets skit, which parodied German pop culture, a young woman uses Clearasil (or, in a strong German accent, "Clärasil") to get rid of her pimples and impress her new boyfriend. The English word "pimples", however, is confused in the sketch with "pimplen", a strong German slang word with the same meaning as the English "fuck" (in the sexual sense). As a result, the commercial tagline ("mach das pimplen kaput") implies that Clearasil will destroy one's sex life.[85]
  • Closet Organizer – A man in a blue Spandex suit (Will Forte) is hired to organize anything in a closet that someone throws in.[86]
  • Clovin Hind Jeans – a parody of Calvin Klein Jeans commercials by Richard Avedon which featured numerous supermodels of the day.[87]
  • Cluckin' Chicken – a fast-food restaurant's animated mascot (voiced by Adam Sandler), when asked why he tastes so good, gleefully describes the process by which he is killed, decapitated and eviscerated, then flame-broiled (then, displaying a schematic chart, describes how he is consumed, digested, and eventually eliminated through defecation).[88]
  • CNN Pregnancy Test – just like its namesake network, this home pregnancy test delivers "relentless breaking news" alerts to a couple waiting (impatiently) to see if they're expecting a baby.[89]
  • Coldcock Malt LiquorTim Meadows appears in this parody of Billy Dee Williams-starred ads for Colt 45; with each sip from a tall can of this beverage, an animated fist arises from the can's label to whack the drinker upside the jaw. Ellen Cleghorne ("I ain't afraid of no can of beer!") and Chris Rock also appear.[90]
  • Colon Blow – In a parody of high-fiber cereal ads (notably Total and its "how many bowls" campaign), an off-screen voice tells cereal eater Phil Hartman he will need 30,000 bowls of his usual cereal to equal the fiber content in a single bowl of Colon Blow. (Also promoted is Super Colon Blow, with fiber content equal to that of 2.5 million bowls of Hartman's cereal.) When the large numbers are quoted, a pyramid of the same number of bowls elevates Hartman into the ionosphere.[91]
  • Colonel Belmont's Old Fashioned Horse Glue – Will Ferrell stars as Langford T. Belmont, a man whose family has been in the horse glue business for generations. It is a parody of commercials that try to appeal to old-fashioned values and tradition.[92]
  • Complicit - a perfume specifically tailored for First Daughter Ivanka Trump (guest host Scarlett Johansson), who the voiceover positions as a glamorous yet duplicitous part of her controversial father's (Alec Baldwin) presidency. The tagline: "The fragrance for the woman who could stop all of this, but won't."[93]
  • Compulsion – a "Calvin Kleen" disinfectant, a parody of Calvin Klein's Obsession perfume and featuring an obsessive compulsive spokesmodel (played by Jan Hooks).[94]
  • Cookie Dough Sport – parody of Gatorade sports drink for athletes who are having a hard time and eat cookie dough out of stress and depression.[95]
  • Corn Chip Nail Tips – Maya Rudolph and Tracy Morgan appear in this parody of "hip" potato chip commercials, promoting corn chips that double as false fingernails.[96]
  • Count Chocula Silver – Count Chocula (Jimmy Fallon) promotes a newer version of his cereal made for the tastes of middle-aged people.[97]
  • Cracklin' Oat Flakes (Now with Ecstasy) – Will Ferrell wakes up to find that he has run out of his normal cereal, Cracklin' Oat Flakes. His wife then offers Cracklin' Oat Flakes, Now with Ecstasy. After one bowl, Ferrell creeps out his coworkers, makes out with Chris Parnell, then runs half-naked through the streets until he's seen in bed with a pacifier in his mouth and playing with a glowstick.[98]
  • Creeley's Soup – Off-screen announcer Bill Murray tries to talk a child (Gilda Radner) into exchanging the soup she's eating for various items. When she becomes annoyed ("No! Leave me alone! I'm eating!"), the announcer successfully talks her into not only stuffing corn from the soup into her nose but pouring the rest onto her nose ("Because the Soupman says so"). The product's tagline: "Creeley's Soup – The Child Handler".[99]
  • The Crests and Troughs of Vernon Hawley, Jr. – featuring John Larroquette, the ad promotes an album about a Country-Western singer's bouts with alcoholism.[100]
  • Crystal Gravy – parody of the clear consumer products fad of the mid-1990s, specifically Crystal Pepsi commercials. Julia Sweeney enjoys a drumstick dipped in clear gravy straight from the jar, while Kevin Nealon gleefully splashes his face in the clear, gooey liquid.[101]

  • The Day Beyoncé Turned Black - a movie trailer interpreting the reaction to the release of Beyoncé's "Formation", a song noted for its embracing of black heritage, as an apocalyptic-style film, one where White Americans are hysterical over the realization that Beyoncé is black.[106]
  • Dell Stator's 99-cent Toad Ranch – "Home of the World Famous Dell Stator Toad Pit and the Dell Stator Patented Broiling Method, where we can guarantee you the best 99-cent toad steak you'll ever eat!"[107]

  • Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice – parody of erectile dysfunction treatments (particularly Levitra), complete with the warning "If you experience an erection lasting longer than twenty-four hours, call up your friends and brag about it." Levitra's slogan "strong and lasting" is replaced by "thick and sturdy".[117]
  • Dr. Uncle Jimmy's Smokehouse and Outpatient Surgical Facility – a shady clinic that offers semi-professional surgery and mediocre barbecue cuisine.[118]
  • Dropping the L.B.'s With Missy E – Missy Elliott (Tracy Morgan) pitches a workout video featuring her impossible-to-imitate dance moves.[119]

  • DynaCorp – an announcer (voice of Chris Parnell) confuses Jessica Simpson with food products similar to Chicken of the Sea-brand tuna.

  • Empire – a promo parody of the FOX television series, now including a white man named Chip (played by Chris Hemsworth) who would rather run the record company as a real company instead of getting involved in the drama.
  • "Energy for a Gullible America" — parodies Exxon's "Energy for a Strong America" campaign. Don Pardo is the voiceover announcer for a spot decrying high production costs for elaborate oil-company commercials and offering this as an excuse for high energy prices.[127]
  • The Englehart Five — The German quintet's new album has Helga Englehart (guest host Eva Longoria) and her brothers Rolf, Fritz, and Juergen (played respectively by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers) singing songs about their brother Klaus' (Will Forte) death in a hunting accident caused by Rolf.[128]
  • Epoxy-Dent — A 1978 ad for "the strongest denture cream permitted by law". To prove its strength, a user bites down on a wood bar, which is lifted by a helicopter ("The Epoxy-Dent Chopper Test!").[129]
  • EPT Home Pregnancy Test - a parody of EPT's campaign that features real-life couples using the product to see if they're having a baby.

The only drawback is they also complain that it hurts as well, as evidenced by the testimonials from the users.[277]

O[edit]

  • Old Glory Insurance – a parody of older celebrities (such as Wilford Brimley and Alex Trebek) promoting insurance for senior citizens. Sam Waterston, in a deadpan performance as "Paid Spokesperson", touts the advantages of the only life insurance company to provide full coverage against the leading killer of the elderly: attacks from robots that feed on the medications the elderly often use.[278]

Also joining the businessman is Affleck in a pink robe, earrings, and wearing make-up (who asks the Dutchman [played by Darrell Hammond] if he's interested in buying panda meat) and a paranoid Kelly Ripa (in a cameo appearance) wielding a meat cleaver and exhorting the businessman to cut the prostitute up and put the remains in a bag.[281]

Also available in Republican Strength for John Boehner (Taran Killam).
  • Pep Boys Genderflect campaign — Mirroring Starbucks' "#RaceTogether" campaign (which encouraged conversations about race between its employees and customers), the auto parts chain promotes its own initiative to discuss LGBT and gender issues with customers.

  • Pepto-Bismol Ice – Nasim Pedrad appears in this sketch about the famous pink antacid in malt liquor form.[286]
  • Petchow Rat Poison – parody of misleading labels, Hank Petchow's (Will Ferrell) brand of rat poison looks like dog food, is packaged in a 25 lb. bag with "PetChow" in large print, has a large photo of Petchow's dog, and the words "rat poison" in very fine print.[287]

  • Puppy Uppers and Doggie Downers – Gilda Radner complains to Laraine Newman that her dog Sparky has no energy, so Newman recommends Puppy Uppers. Later, when the dog is hyperactive (and quite a bit smaller), Radner complains that "Sparky's perked up a little too much", so Newman recommends dosing him with Doggie Downers.[294]

Q[edit]

  • Quarry — Jane Curtin appears in this sketch about "the only [breakfast] cereal that's pure 100% rocks and pebbles", parodying the glut of "natural", earthy, and crunchy (deafeningly, in this case) granola-based cereals popular in the mid-1970s.

  • Rubik's Grenade — a parody of Rubik's Cube promotes what may be "the last puzzle you'll never solve".[300]

  • Salon — Features David Spade as a "flamboyant" beauty salon operator pitching a hairspray that is activated by saying "salon" repeatedly (in the exaggerated French manner, with a sibilant 'S' and the accent on the first syllable). He teaches Victoria Jackson how to say it "properly".[303]
  • Schmitt's Gay — in this spoof of beer companies' targeting of specific demographics, two housesitters (Chris Farley & Adam Sandler) are discouraged at the filthy condition of the backyard pool.

  • Spitzer and Associates — Following his resignation due to the sex scandal involving his money laundering and dalliances with high-priced call girls, Eliot Spitzer (Bill Hader) is now opening a private practice dealing with embarrassing sex-related issues. Sketch called "Spitzer Cold Open."[310]

A highlight is the slow pouring of Swill from the bottle, set to the refrain of Carly Simon's "Anticipation", a song used to promote another slow-pouring food item at the time, Heinz Ketchup.[319]

T[edit]

  • Taco Town – a restaurant parody of Taco Bell, advertising a new taco with layer after layer of outer crust, finished with a Chicago-style pizza and blueberry pancake, and "deep fried to perfection". Andy Samberg says of the product, "Pizza? Now that's what I call a taco!"[320]
  • Target — This 2016 ad for the department store chain notes that it has everything you need for Thanksgiving, be it food, cookware, home decor... or a nice, spacious parking lot where you can sit in your car and gather your bearings if you're meeting your family for the first time since the election.[321]
  • Tech-Pack – A man (Jason Sudeikis) shows a harried woman (Kristen Wiig) at the airport a new wearable pouch system that can hold and activate all electronics (mp3 players, PDAs, cellphones, etc.) with a joystick, but scares other passengers because of its uncanny resemblance to a suicide belt.[322]
  • Teddy Bear Holding a Heart – a spoof of a De Beers commercial, where a guy (Will Forte) gives his sweetheart (Amy Poehler) a teddy bear holding a heart for Valentine's Day, the gift available practically everywhere.[323]
  • Texxon – An image ad shown during "network newsbreaks", including those following the Buckwheat assassination, ostensibly touting the philanthropic efforts of that petroleum company; they successively degenerate into thinly veiled threats of dire consequences if various legislation under consideration doesn't go the company's way, supposedly forcing it to scale back efforts to assist the needy: "Texxon. Do what we say, and nobody gets hurt."[324][325]
  • That's Not Yogurt! – spoof of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!" ads and the TCBY frozen-yogurt chain. (The latter's acronymic name was originally supposed to stand for "This Can't Be Yogurt!" but was later revised to stand for "The Country's Best Yogurt".) After eating the product, a couple (Victoria Jackson and Kevin Nealon) becomes very concerned about what the mysterious product actually is, but the coy announcer refuses to tell them. "From the makers of Those Aren't Olives!"[326]
  • This is U.S. — a promo for a NBC series that depicts life in the Trump administration as an emotional family drama, a la This Is Us, with characters including White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon) and HUD secretary Ben Carson (episode host, and This Is Us cast member, Sterling K.

    • The first ad, from 2015, promotes the "Totino's Super Bowl Activity Pack," featuring games and toys specifically made "for grown women ages 5 and up" (e.g. puzzles, play money, miniature top) that the wife can play to keep herself occupied in the kitchen while the hubby (episode host J. K. Simmons) and the guys watch the game.[331]
    • The second ad, from 2016, is a straight-up Pizza Rolls ad that takes a strange turn: The "hungry guys" (episode host Larry David among them) are reacting to the big game in unison. But when the wife discovers that they're shouting at a blank TV screen and grabs a pair of scissors for self-defense, the guys turn around all at once, revealing icy stares with solid black eyes. The twist: The ad is actually a promotion for the recently revived series The X-Files.[332]
    • The third ad, from 2017, takes a steamy turn: When a sister of one of the guys (played by episode host Kristen Stewart) comes into the kitchen to help, the wife finds herself attracted to the woman, and the two engage in torrid intercourse, using the Pizza Rolls on their bodies and speaking in French, thus giving real meaning when the husband asks if they're "making out" in the kitchen.[333]

Documentary-style, Manning is shown "mentoring" children; what ensues is Manning physically and verbally abusing the kids during a football game (hitting kids in the back of the head with a football and sending one of them to sit in a Port-A-Let for messing up a play), and afterwards teaching his charges how to break into an SUV, exploiting a little girl to get a date with an attractive woman, showing kids a tabloid magazine featuring Angelina Jolie, drinking beer in front of them, and admitting that he would kill anyone who snitches on him.[343]

  • Uvula Public Service Spot – Chevy Chase as a physician urging Gilda Radner and the audience to take proper care of the uvula, without ever saying what the uvula actually is. (It is a small piece of flesh that hangs down from the rear portion of the soft palate and requires little, if any, maintenance.)[347]

V[edit]

  • Valtrex – A husband repeatedly affirms his fidelity to his wife during a commercial for a pill that treats genital herpes.[348]

Luckily, Blasingame (Will Ferrell) — "the attorney, not the ballplayer" — specializes in taking dogs to court over their rambunctious behavior. Also featuring Chris Parnell as Wade's brother/associate and the human simulating bad canine behavior in the ad's dramatizations.[351]
  • Wells for Boys – For introspective little boys who simply long to be understood, this item from Fisher-Price's "Sensitive Boy" collection provides a private place for reflection, contemplation and the sharing of secrets; Dad (Bobby Moynihan) may not get it, but Mom (Emma Stone) understands.[352]
  • We're Just Friends – Short shorts for men (Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg) whose close friendship is often mistaken for a gay relationship[353]
  • Where You're Going – parody of 1980s Michelob commercials in which Jon Lovitz, Randy Quaid, Damon Wayans, Anthony Michael Hall and others are shown celebrating their latest conquests in the business world and living the good life, until the end of the commercial where they all burn in Hell for living spiritually bankrupt, avaricious lives.[354]
  • Wilson Trap Doors – office trap doors that effectively do away with unwanted guests, clients or employees.[355]
  • Wilson Countersink Flanges and Dorry Flanges – Phil Hartman narrates this commercial for technically complex industrial supplies (with Chris Farley and Rob Schneider).[356]

  • You're a Rat Bastard, Charlie Brown — Seeking live holiday entertainment that's family-oriented yet also edgy? The New York Actor's Studio offers this gritty take on Peanuts that's "Charlie Brown by way of Brooklyn."

  • Yum Bubble Genital Herpes Gum — A fruit-flavored bubble gum that controls genital herpes.[362]

Z[edit]

  • Z-Shirt — Its name sums up what the product is: A 1990s hip-hop-style neon shirt with a "Z" on the front. As shirt-wearer Tim Robinson exclaims, "This ain't no t-shirt, it's a Z-Shirt!" The comedy comes when his buddy (guest host Kevin Hart) goes through the alphabet and asks, "Oh! Wait! I'm confused! Is that an A-Shirt?" "Is it a B-Shirt?" etc.[363]
