On the American late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show Saturday Night Live (SNL), a commercial advertisement parody is commonly shown after the host's opening monologue. Many of the parodies were produced by James Signorelli. The industries, products, and ad formats targeted by the parodies have been wide-ranging, including fast food, beer, feminine hygiene products, toys, clothes, medications (both prescription and over-the-counter), financial institutions, automobiles, electronics, appliances, public-service announcements, infomercials, and movie & TV shows (including SNL itself).

Many of SNL's ad parodies have been featured in prime-time clip shows over the years, including an April 1991 special hosted by Kevin Nealon and Victoria Jackson, as well as an early 1999 follow-up hosted by Will Ferrell that features his attempts to audition for a feminine hygiene commercial. In late 2005 and in March 2009, the special was modernized, 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 (complete with an altered logo to "MTV: Maternity Television"). Promoted here are My Super Sweet 16 and Pregnant; America's Best Pregnant Dance Crew; Wild 'n Out with a Special Guest: A Baby; an all-baby-cribs edition of Cribs; and, in an odd case of satirical prophecy, I'm Snooki and Pregnant (Snooki Polizzi would reveal her pregnancy and engagement in March 2012).[1][2]
  • 1-800-FlowersKristen 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 is at her most annoying.[3]
  • 5-hour Empathy — "For when you just don't get it," the makers of 5-hour Energy offer this liquid supplement that provides, as Kenan Thompson's voiceover notes, "5 full hours of complete, intimate understanding of years of systemic oppression and ever-present racism." But even after an initial desire to do so, ad subject Beck Bennett is hesitant to try it, going so far as to pantomime chugging it down ("The cap is still on," notes Thompson); insisting he's not racist ("I voted for Biden; what more do you want?!"); and offering it to wife Heidi Gardner, who also declines ("I don't need that, 'cause I'm a woman, so… it's the same").[4]
  • 24-Hour Energy for Dating Actresses — Having an actress for a paramour, and dealing with their quirks, can leave a man exhausted and debilitated. Luckily, this once-daily supplement gives men the energy they need to handle their paramours' constant rehearsing, mastering of foreign accents, emotional swings over callbacks, etc. Also promoted is a female formula, "24-Hour Energy for Dating Comedians."[5]
  • 39 Cents — In a parody of international aid advertisements, Charles Daniels (portrayed by episode host Bill Hader) visits a poverty-stricken African village while gently asking the viewer to send just 39 cents to provide food, water, and medicine, saying it costs less than a small cup of coffee. However, the villagers (portrayed by Kenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah, Sasheer Zamata, and then-SNL writer Leslie Jones) begin confronting him over the fact that he is requesting such an insultingly low amount to save their lives, especially considering how expensive coffee is. Daniels continues to give increasingly weak answers to their questions, claiming the number was determined by "experts," until he finally admits he does not even know what country he is actually in. The skit ends with Jones' character taking Daniels guaranty and demanding $200 in cash to return him.[6]

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).[7]
  • Academy of Better Careers — Spokesman Wendell Craig[8] pitches a program for people to find jobs as stand-by operators.[9]
  • Action Cats — A parody of action-figure toys featuring plastic armor and weapons for live cats.[10]

  • Adopt John Belushi for Christmas — Candice Bergen sells people on letting John Belushi stay at their place for the holidays.[12]
  • Airbnb — Natalie (Chloe Fineman) enjoys offering her home to guests through the lodging service… although she laments sharing it with European guest Oolie (also Fineman), whose one-night stay has been extended due to the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine, resulting in Natalie being subjected to Oolie's discourteous manners (e.g. washing dishes with a garden hose, doing yoga topless in the front yard).[13]
  • The Al Pacino Accused Murderer Biopic Series — Fresh off playing Phil Spector in a biopic for the network, and three years after he played Dr. Jack Kevorkian in another film, HBO calls again on Al Pacino (Bill Hader) to play several other famous figures accused of murder, including Ted Kaczynski, Amanda Knox, the Menendez brothers, the captain of the Costa Concordia, Oscar Pistorius, and Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray.[14]
  • Al Sharpton's Casa De Sushi — Analogous to Donald Trump's House of Wings and Derek Jeter's Taco Hole, Sharpton (as himself) opens a Japanese restaurant… even though Sharpton himself hates the food and only admits to opening the restaurant so he can pay for his political campaign.[15]
  • Almost Pizza — It may look and smell like pizza, but it's not quite pizza, as proven by its molecular instability (it gets hotter when removed from the oven, shatters like glass, then regroups and crawls on the floor).[16]
  • AM Ale – An alcoholic beverage for the morning because "you can't wait 'til afternoon".[17]
  • Amazin' Lazer — A consumer grade laser gun used for cleaning up yard waste or (as onscreen superimpositions discourage) dangerous and potentially criminal acts.[18]
  • The Amazing Alexander – A 1986 ad promotes a Broadway theatre performance by a popular stage hypnotist (portrayed in performance still shots by Jon Lovitz). Audience members in the ad give the show unanimous praise—the same praise, in fact, delivered in a hypnotic trance ("I loved it. It was much better than CATS. I'm going to see it again and again.").[19]
  • Amazon — 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 massagers (which one daughter mistakes for a microphone) or the best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey (in hard-copy or, so the husband doesn't have to know she's reading it, on Kindle).[20]
  • Amazon Echo Silver - A smart speaker device designed for elderly users: It speaks very loudly, responds to anything remotely resembling "Alexa," mutters "Uh-huh" during long, rambling stories, etc.[21]
  • AMC Theatres — The theater chain partners with Vin Diesel (Beck Bennett) to promote their showing of his upcoming F9 in this ad that closed out Season 46. Diesel, however, talks up the little minutae ("The tickets... the sticky floors... that hand-dryer in the bathroom that's louder than a choo-choo train") that makes going to "the mooovies" so great.[22]
  • American Cancer Society – This PSA from Season 6 has spokeswoman Gail Matthius promising to honestly and openly discuss breast cancer and perform a self-exam, a promise broken when she discusses the exam in euphemisms and her chest is covered by a censor bar.[23]
  • American Dope Growers Union – Laraine Newman (and several SNL castmembers and writers) support American-grown marijuana and the farmers who grow it.[24]
  • American Express — This 2015 parody of the credit card's celebrity-driven ad campaign features episode 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."[25]
  • American Taser – A series of people demonstrate the latest models of tasers by shocking each other. It begins a pitchman (Chris Parnell), followed by a police officer (Jason Sudeikis), a second pitchman (Darrell Hammond), a sexual predator (Seth Meyers), a feminist businesswoman (Amy Poehler), an angry wife (Rachel Dratch), the angry wife's husband (Will Forte), a black man (Kenan Thompson), a racist nightwatchman (Bill Hader), a militant black man (Finesse Mitchell), a Star Trek geek (Andy Samberg), and ends with the manufacturer's president (episode host Jason Lee) who shocks himself.[26]

  • …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.[29][30]

  • Angry Dog — Dog food with "synthetic testosterone and seven psychoactive drugs" (and a picture of Michael Vick on the package) that turns any dog ferocious.[33]
  • 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 ax 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).[34]
  • The Apocalypse — "The people who brought you Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve" apply the same themes of those films (romantic comedy, holiday setting, all-star ensemble cast) to the world's end. This trailer's tagline: "It's love… at last sight."[35]
  • Aron's List — an online service that's similar to Angie's List but charges a lower fee, 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).[36]
  • Asian-American Doll — A Barbie advertisement parody featuring an Asian-American doll who has to be as bland as possible due to political correctness (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 Angel Perfume Jeans — Women can both look and smell great in these jeans that mask "secret little lady scents" with aromas of lavender, rose, and industrial chemicals ("do not wear these jeans if you have kidney or liver problems… consult your doctor before purchasing"). Set in a 1980s music video style, this Season 46 ad features episode host Adele, returning SNL alum Maya Rudolph, and feather-haired rocker Beck Bennett (♪♫ "She's got the ass of an angel/I wanna smell it some more" ♪♫).[37]
  • Ass Don't Smell — personal hygiene spray intended to keep one's buttocks smelling fresh and clean; a parody of feminine hygiene deodorant sprays.[38]
  • 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 carburetor every 800 miles, and your car's exhaust will smell like lilacs or pine forests.[39]
  • Autumn Fizz — "The Carbonated Douche" that "brings out the natural fragrance of femininity, with the effervescence of uncola."[40]
  • Autumn's Eve Pumpkin Spice Douche — from the makers of Summer's Eve comes a feminine hygiene product that has the bold, spicy scent of fall.[41]
  • Aw Nuts! Mom's a Ghost! — A promo for a new Disney Channel show centered on a family with a peculiar mom (episode host Kristen Wiig): After taking a lover on a business trip to South Korea, only to have him drown her to keep their affair a secret, she returns as a "Korean water ghost" to mother her two kids and terrorize the neighborhood, K-horror style.[42]

B[edit]

  • Baba Wawa Talks to Herself — TV special promo where Baba Wawa (Gilda Radner) interviews herself.[43]

  • 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?'").

For those shopping online, the store's website also offers replacement suggestions such as salsa for pasta sauce and a DVD of Van Helsing for toilet paper. An ad airing as part of SNL's second-ever "at home" episode in April 2020.[50]
  • Bathroom Businessman — This advert starts off as a promo for a fully functional portable office (computer monitors and all) that businessman Kenan Thompson can set up in a public toilet, giving a dual meaning to "doing business." It takes a turn, however, when Thompson finds he can't "do business" because the desk setup has blocked his path to the toilet… and the ad becomes "a public service announcement for Decency," warning viewers to stop checking work texts and e-mails on the toilet ("Nothing's that important… and it's disgusting").[51]
  • Bathroom Monkey — housewife Janeane Garofalo uses a disposable simian slave that keeps your bathroom clean.[52]
  • Be My Quaran-Tine — Nick (Alex Moffat) hasn't had time to find that special someone… until he self-isolates during the COVID-19 pandemic and finds someone who shares the same interests, thoughts, etc. as he does — that person being himself.

  • Beta Force — Testosterone supplements meant to give men vitality can at times work too well, turning them into overtly aggressive alpha males (especially in bed). Luckily, this supplement is a counter-agent that turns men into their paunchy, mild-mannered middle-aged selves once again.[56]
  • The Beygency — A 2014 film trailer in which episode host Andrew Garfield goes on the run from mysterious, Adjustment Bureau-style agents, all because he "turned against his country" and professed to not entirely being a fan of Beyoncé's music (in particular "Drunk in Love"). 24 alumns Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub have cameo appearances.[57]
  • Bierhoff House of German Coats — Two German entrepreneurs (Fred Armisen and episode host Ben Affleck) sell bright orange winter coats to German tourists vacationing in New York City.[58]
  • Big Brawn Feminine Napkins — Parodying Brawny paper towels (with a jingle set to the tune of "Big Bad John"), this ad shows giant lumberjack 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.[59]
  • Big Red — A toy Viking figure, complete with stereotypical horned Viking helmet, that spins around and sprays red liquid from its horns. The liquid is revealed to be hazardous, as evidenced by the thick utility gloves included to clean up the resulting mess. Made by Bleego, a parody of Mego. An absurdist parody of water sprinkler-type toys.[60]
  • Bio-Flex – a parody of exercise equipment commercials where Will Ferrell is attacked by a half-man/half-monkey creature, which is considered a workout.[61]
  • Bird Bible — "Your family will never be bored by scriptures again" thanks to this kid-oriented pictorial version of the Bible, promoted in a March 2014 ad, that substitutes human figures with images of birds (e.g. a haloed hatching emerges from its egg to depict Jesus's birth).[62]
  • The Bitchslap Method – an infomercial promotes a self-help video course that teaches troubled married couples to bitch-slap their spouses into submission.[63]
  • Black Widow: Age of Me — Acknowledging criticism for giving female superhero characters the short shrift, Marvel Studios reciprocates with this Season 40 film trailer centered around Black Widow (episode host Scarlett Johansson, reprising her role from the MCU). But rather than a traditional superhero film, it's a romantic comedy that finds Black Widow in the big city, where she works for a fashion magazine, deals with a Miranda Priestly-like boss (played by Kate McKinnon), and falls quickly into romance with supervillan Ultron.[64]
  • Bladdivan — A prescription medication (combining powerful drugs, a powerful diuretic, and anti-anxiety medications) that treats cases of "shy bladder syndrome" in men; side effects include "peeing yourself… and not really caring that you peed yourself."[65]
  • Blaine Hotel — Part of an early running gag on Weekend Update, this ad bumper has Don Pardo announcing that guests of SNL stay at the Blaine Hotel, but is usually preceded by Update reports of serious incidents (e.g. murder, virus outbreak) taking place at the Blaine.[66][67]
  • Blue River Dog Food — Cindy and Pat (Cecily Strong and episode host Seth Rogen) offer a testimonial for this dog food, but it takes an abrupt turn when Cindy lashes out at the lack of integrity of their previous brand (i.e. it had a chicken on its packaging but only offered "trace amounts of chicken").[68]
  • Bok Bok's — A March 2019 ad for a chicken restaurant that insists that its "human-bird hybrid" mascot, Bok Bok (Kate McKinnon), is not "Momo" in a chicken suit and is "not tempting children with chicken to steal their souls" (alluding to the social media hoax).[69]
  • Boop-It — A Bop It-like memory game that's fun for kids of all ages — including divorced dad Beck Bennett, whose obsession of mastering the flashing toy's honks and turns takes the fun out of time with his children.[70]
  • 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".[71]
  • Bosley – The hair transplant service offers a new procedure that borrows hair from the pubic region (or "mezzanine" as spokesman Jason Sudeikis refers to it); the result is a corse and curly patch of new locks on a head that had previously been bald or thin-haired.[72]
  • Brad PittTaran Killam parodies Pitt's rambling 2012 pitch work for Chanel No. 5[73] with this quartet of ads including:
    • A straight-up parody of the Chanel ad, with Killan's Pitt obliging the director's request to sound less coherent by making up words ("Splindiferous," "Pintalicious").[74]
    • Taco Bell, and how their Doritos Taco Loco is "a great way to make a quick meal when you have between 8 and 20 children."[75]
    • Franklin's Dog Condoms ("Let your dog keep his balls")[76]
    • Jonathan Zizmor, referring to the tattoo removal specialist as "The Subway Doctor" for his ubiquitous advertising on New York City's subway system.[77]
  • Bravo — The reality-heavy TV network adds more unscripted drama, each having a tenuous cast connection with the show mentioned before it, among them The Moroccans of Mulholland Drive (centered on a Morocco-born dentist with a celebrity client list), A Coppola Coconuts (featuring two granddaughters of Francis Ford Coppola), and the self-explanatory The Real Houseplants of Beverly Hills.[78]
  • Brew Dude – a hat that dispenses beer for the college student who would rather party than study.[79]
  • 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 posing as an adult).[80]
  • 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) disappointed over his representation by the incompetent Ganz (Bobby Moynihan).[81]
  • Brogaine — A version of Rogaine designed for male college students suffering from premature hair loss caused by the stress of college life caused by such factors as "nerds", "midterms", concern over your frat dog being an alcoholic, and chanting "the n-word" in a viral video ("because no one wants to be the bald guy in the frat").[82]
  • BrokenCBS, seeking the award 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 gives it the same light-hearted promotional approach as its sitcoms.[83]
  • Brutal Marriage Movie — This cut-for-time trailer from Season 47 promotes a movie documenting the overly dramatic struggles between a married couple played by "two [scene-chewing] actors who fully expect Oscars" (Heidi Gardner and episode host Rami Malek). The film comes from "the producer of Marriage Story" and "a director going through a divorce himself."[84]
  • The Bubble — This November 2016 ad promotes a proposed domed community (formerly the New York City borough of Brooklyn) with a diverse, progressive atmosphere (hybrid cars, coffee shops, used book stores, money bearing Bernie Sanders' portrait, etc.). The community is marketed toward millennials and liberals who are scared to live in America now that Donald Trump won the presidency, but would prefer not to leave the country.[85]
  • 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.[86]
  • 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!"[87]
  • 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".[88]
  • 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".[89]
  • Bunny Business Soundtrack — Ahead of the release of an animated motion picture about "a couple of bunnies with a lot of ambition," its accompanying soundtrack is promoted in this Season 35 ad. The album features songs by the likes of Randy Newman (Fred Armisen), Natalie Merchant (Kristen Wiig), and Shakira (episode host Taylor Swift).[90]
  • Burger Master – a fast food restaurant where people can get their burgers done any way they want—no matter how weird or disgusting the request may be.[91]

C[edit]

  • C.E.O Dreamboats – a magazine with famous businessmen as objects of desire for teenyboppers.[92]
  • Calvin Klein Cream Pies – in a parody of Andie MacDowell-starred Calvin Klein Jeans commercials, Julia Louis-Dreyfus portrays MacDowell as an annoying model who gets hit in the face with a custard pie after one of her shallow, rambling stories.[93]
  • 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.[94]
  • 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 fellow model Lara Stone (Cecily Strong) unimpressed.[95]
  • Camel Tame — When placed "between your clothes and your business," this insert helps prevent the unsightly showing of a woman's camel toe… but resembles a male bulge as a result.[96]
  • Canis Cologne for Dogs — parody of a Calvin Klein fragrance ad.[97]
  • 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.[98]
  • 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.[99]
  • The Chad & Mrs. Douglas Show Holiday DVD — Chad and Victoria Douglas (Taran Killam and Vanessa Bayer) promote a Time Life DVD collection of Christmas musical performances from their 1970s TV variety series, which feature guest performers who were clearly imbibing on drug & drink vices of the era.[100]
  • Carter 'N Sons BBQ – A commercial for a barbecue pork restaurant produced in 2002 but airing in 2009, augmented 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.[101]
  • Cartier Fidget Spinner — A 14-carat-gold, diamond-encrusted fidget spinner for the woman who is glamorous yet easily distracted.[102]
  • Celtic Woman — It's "the cultural event your godmother described as perfection," as the Irish singing group (Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, and episode host Anya Taylor-Joy) hits the road for a Summer 2021 tour of the U.S. Hear them sing deep-cut and loosely original songs, along with a random assortment of non-Gaelic tunes American audiences kinda want to hear (e.g. "Sweet Home Alabama").[103]
  • Chalmers Reserve Event Wine — Trett and Leezan Chalmers (Kenan Thompson and Cecily Strong), former stars of the reality TV show The Nastiest Summer Renters of Sag Harbor, introduce their fine wine that's 72% grain alcohol and costs only $1 a bottle. Why the low price? An Italian couple (Kyle Mooney and episode host Emma Stone) who makes the wine reveals its ingredient list: Twigs, yellow corn, and moldy grapes that didn't make the cut for better wines ("We think it's for the dogs").[104]
  • The Chameleon XLE – a luxury car on the inside, a dilapidated wreck on the outside — but all 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.[105]
  • 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.").[106]
    • 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.[107]
  • cheapkids.net – a website dedicated to the sale of shoddy items for babies and toddlers for irresponsible parents.[108]
  • Cheques — While sending money can be as routine as clicking on a smart phone app, a check provides a noir-flavored air when paying your daughter's boyfriend (so she'll never see him again), your maid (so she forgets about what she saw in the gazebo), or your poison supplier ("Just one sip, and I become head of the board").[109]
  • Cherry GroveLogo pairs its upcoming reality show Fire Island with this companion series focusing on a group of affluent lesbians who, unlike the hard-partying gay men of Fire Island one beach over, get no raunchier than sharing a fondness for dinner, wine, song, jigsaw puzzles, and water birth.[110]
  • 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!"[111]
  • Chewable Pampers – A line of Pampers diapers which contain flavor crystals that, once the diaper is soiled, turns into an edible treat.[112]
  • 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!")[113]
  • 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 who populate it depicted in the same gritty, unflinching way as its firefighting and law enforcement worlds.[114]
  • Chickham Apple Farm — Just in time for the apple-picking season, Debra Chickham (Aidy Bryant), her sister (Kate McKinnon), and Hank the farmhand (episode host Woody Harrelson), promote their orchard located in "the part of New York state that has Confederate flags." Visitors can have fun at the petting zoo, haunted hayride, and, yes, the apple orchard ("For $45, you can bring home $10 worth of apples").[115]
  • Chonk — This clothing store offers fashions that let women be "gorgeous at any size"; much to the models' clear dismay, however, the store bears an uncomplimentary name. Also featured is "Lil' Chonk" for tween girls (Mom ushers her young model out of camera range), and the menswear store "Normal Clothes", where guys can make a quick trip to find clothes in their size.[116]
  • 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 Apollo's vociferously critical audiences. Siobhan Fallon and episode host Rob Morrow appear in before-and-after footage.[117]
  • Cialis for Threeways — Erectile dysfunction medication that's 50% stronger than regular Cialis "just in case that rare opportunity arises," and also includes anti-depressants ("to help you cope with the inevitable shame and regret") and Xanax (to help you make it through the argumentative fallout the next morning).[118]
  • Cialis Turnt — An ad for "the only pill that combats your erectile dysfunction while giving you that unbeatable hip-hop sensation of 'getting turnt.'" To demonstrate its effectiveness, Taran Killam and Aidy Bryant are shown dancing wildly to music similar to Lil Jon's song "Turn Down for What" that includes the exclamation "Everybody, get turnt!"[119]
  • 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 "humble job" (which he shortens to "hum job").[120]
  • 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 (Beth's just practicing her pitch work before the bathroom mirror).[121]
  • 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.[122]
  • Cleveland Cavaliers — This cut-for-time team promo from Season 43 highlights "The Other Cavaliers," i.e. those who ride on the shoulders (literally) of go-to man LeBron James, including a Roomba at point guard, a golden retriever as starting center, and one player (episode host Donald Glover) who's good at rolling the ball up the court to save time on the clock.[123]

  • 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, eviscerated, and flame-broiled… then, displaying a schematic chart, describes how he is consumed, digested, and eventually eliminated through defecation.[126]
  • CNN Pregnancy Test — just like its namesake network, this home pregnancy test delivers "relentless breaking news" alerts to a couple waiting (impatiently) to learn if they're expecting a baby.[127]
  • Coldcock Malt LiquorTim Meadows appears in this parody of Billy Dee Williams' pitchwork 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.[128]
  • Cold Commercial- Kristen Wiig plays a woman with a cold who tries to advertise an effective cold medicine called Nasaflu, but her also sick husband, played by Will Ferrell, constantly interrupts her with his obnoxious, scream-like sneezes.
  • 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 (2.5 million to equal Super Colon Blow, which is also promoted here). When the large numbers are quoted, a pyramid of the same number of bowls elevates Hartman into the ionosphere.[129]
  • Colonel Belmont's Old Fashioned Horse Glue – Will Ferrell appears as Langford T. Belmont, a man whose family has been in the horse glue business for generations. A parody of commercials that try to appeal to old-fashioned values and tradition.[130]
  • Commode & Commode — Attorneys Denzel & Latrice Commode (Kenan Thompson and episode host Regina King) promise financial compensation for those facing hardships from using Gorilla Glue in place of beauty product, as has happened to members of the Commode family who offer testimonials. A spoof of the "Gorilla Glue Girl" story that went viral the week of this Season 46 ad.[131][132]
  • Complicit — a perfume specifically tailored for First Daughter Ivanka Trump (episode 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."[133]
  • Compulsion – A "Calvin Kleen" disinfectant, parodying Calvin Klein's Obsession perfume and featuring an obsessive compulsive spokesmodel (played by Jan Hooks).[134]
  • Cookie Dough Sport – a parody of Gatorade sports drink for athletes who are having a hard time and eat cookie dough out of stress and depression.[135]
  • 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.[136]
  • Corn Syrup Producers of America — In this trade group ad, Kristen Wiig inquisitively asks Nasim Pedrad about why she serves her daughter juice with high-fructose corn syrup. Pedrad responds by saying she'd rather "trust scientists" who espouse favorable data (e.g. corn syrup is natural, it's okay in moderation) than "stay-at-home mom Sheila from down the street who's having wine at 10AM" (a catty dig aimed at a speechless Wiig).[137]
  • Count Chocula Silver – Count Chocula (Jimmy Fallon) promotes a newer version of his cereal that includes ingredients that help promote regularity and good heart health along with "kooky marshmallow bats! Bwa-ah-ah-ah-ah!"[138]
  • Cracklin' Oat Flakes (Now with Ecstasy) – Will Ferrell wakes up to find that he has run out of his regular Cracklin' Oat Flakes, but his wife offers this Ecastasy-laced version. 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.[139]
  • 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".[140]
  • The Crests and Troughs of Vernon Hawley, Jr. – This "special TV offer" promotes a 3-record compilation from "one of country's most enduring, yet erratic, superstars" (episode host John Larroquette), whose song repertoire deals with his battles with the bottle ("I hope you remember these ol' tunes.. 'cause I don't").[141]
  • Cricket Wireless — On the week when FEMA and the FCC tested their wireless alert system (one the White House would use only in a national emergency),[142] this ad makes it appear that Donald Trump will use these "Presidential Alerts" to express the same type of opinions he shares on Twitter. Luckily for those who use Cricket, they won't receive such endless alerts at all ("Now are you happy we have awful service?").[143]
  • Cruz for Texas — Footage from a campaign rally makes up this ad for Texas Senator Ted Cruz's (Beck Bennett) 2018 re-election effort. Cruz is assisted by a "hype team" (Kenan Thompson and episode host Awkwafina), but while the pair is able to liven up the crowd, things fall apart (literally and figuratively) for Cruz after he takes the stage.[144]
  • Crystal Gravy – A parody of the clear consumer products fad of the mid-1990s, specifically Crystal Pepsi. 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.[145]
  • CVS Pharmacy — For the guys who forgot to get their girlfriends something for Valentine's Day, CVS is the perfect place to find it at the last minute, be it teddy bears in bee costumes ("Bee Mine"), valentine-themed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles chocolates, or a Christmas stocking priced at an 80% markdown.[146]

D[edit]

  • Dad Christmas - Aidy Bryant plays a travel agent who shows two children from a divorced family (played by Pete Davidson and episode host Claire Foy) all the amenities that come with traveling to Florida to celebrate "Dad Christmas": the lighting of an indoor cigarette, their father (played by Mikey Day) introducing them to an older woman named Dierdre (played by Kate McKinnon), their father getting into Jimmy Buffett music, the lack of any kind of rules and structure, and, when they're older, the opportunity to do drugs with him. ("Dad Christmas: The Sad Part About This Is That He Really Tried Hard").
  • Dallas: The Home Game – Charles Rocket pitches a home board game for dysfunctional families who can now act out their issues the same way the Ewings do on the prime time soap opera Dallas.[147]
  • Damn It, My Mom Is On Facebook — When college students learn their moms just added them as Facebook friends, they can apply this filter that bowdlerizes the wild photographs and rebellious opinions they want hidden from Mom.[148]
  • Darnette Disposable Toilet – the toilet that you throw away after only one use. It takes just as many steps to install and remove as a regular toilet and costs $169.95.[149]
  • Daveheart – A movie trailer for a Braveheart sequel focusing on William Wallace's brother and "Scotland's biggest coward," Dave Wallace (episode host Gerard Butler), one who'd rather retreat or surrender than fight with the British.[150]
  • 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. The trailer shows White Americans in mass hysteria over their realization that Beyoncé is Black — while Black Americans are apathetic.[151]
  • Deidra Wurtz, Downsizing Expert — If you need to break the news about staffing layoffs, divorces, or even pillaged Bosnian villages, let Deidra (Abby Elliott) deliver it in a sincere, caring, yet flighty way ("I feel really bad about it, but it is what it is") that will leave those on the receiving end appreciative and understanding.[152]

  • Democratic National Committee — "The Dems are back!" So exclaim Nancy Pelosi (Kate McKinnon), Dianne Feinstein (Cecily Strong), a Spanish-speaking Tim Kaine (Mikey Day), and other long-prominent and "new faces" (e.g. Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton) of the Democratic Party who are celebrating their state-level victories in 2017 but now turn to progressive issues and attracting "window-lickers from Ohio [and] mouth breathers from Wisconsin" who might not lean Democratic at the polls come 2018.[154]
  • Democratic Party 2018 Campaign — Progressive-leaning voters express confidence in this ad that Democratic candidates will win in the 2018 midterm elections and put the administration of Donald Trump in check… despite being visibly worried (e.g. sweaty armpits, wavering enthusiasm in their voices, drinking heavily, sudden violent behavior around friends and family, and screaming so loud that glass shatters) over the possibility of a "blue wave" not materializing. The closing tag line: "Vote! Please?"[155]
  • Democrats for Ferguson — Unlike his opponent, Terry Ferguson (Will Ferrell) is not a Washington insider; does not have interns working for him; and, because he lost his testicles in a fire 23 years earlier, does not have sex with anyone. Ergo, he's the best choice for the U.S. Senate.[156][157]
  • Depend Legends — Incontinent yet ashamed to wear adult diapers? You don't have to be when Depend offers a line of diapers with images of classic stars of the past (e.g. Clark Gable, Jack Paar, Mickey Mantle). The tagline: "Make History. In your pants."[158]
  • Derek Jeter's Taco Hole – Derek Jeter pitches a taco restaurant in Nutley, New Jersey, with a jingle sung to the Beach Boys song "Kokomo".[159]
  • Dianne Feinstein — After she was seen dismissing a Green New Deal proposal to combat climate change in front of a classroom full of children, the California Senator (Cecily Strong) offers to "make things right" in this cut-for-time political ad from Season 44. However, just as before, she spends one outtake after another arguing with students, parents, and teachers (to one kid who calls her mean, she responds, "Well, your dad wishes you were bullied more; toughen you up a little bit").[160]
  • Dillon/Edwards Investments – This 1999 ad promotes a financial firm that took a slow, cautious approach to providing services on the Internet; when they were ready to do so, they took the only domain name available: "www.clownpenis.fart".[161]
  • Disco Meltdown – A Season 6 ad promotes a hip, new dance club in the reactor core of a nuclear power plant.[162]
  • Discover Card — Card user Ego Nwodim is alerted to peculiar charges on her bill (e.g. giant scissors, red jumpsuits, hundreds of rabbits). When she calls Discover's service line, she is greeted by her raspy-voiced doppelgänger. A spoof of the credit card's "We treat you like you'd treat you" campaign by way of the horror film Us.[163]
  • Disney Channel Acting School — Miley Cyrus (as herself) and Raven-Symoné (Kenan Thompson) promote a school where students train to act "the Disney way," learning techniques such as "Disrespecting Authority," "Pause Then Dis," and "Reacting To Stinky Feet."[164]
  • Dissing Your Dog – Will Ferrell sells a dog training video for passive aggressive dog owners.[165]
  • Divided We Stand — This ad promotes an Off-Broadway musical that dives head-first into the contentious American political climate, though its book, songs, and cast leave a bad impression on both critics ("Time Out New York calls it 'Dangerously oversimplified'") and audiences ("I guess the worst part of the play was their confidence in it").[166]
  • Dog Bones-n-Melodies — The 1990s hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (Ego Nwodim, Chris Redd, Kenan Thompson, and episode host Jonathan Majors) open a store that sells nothing but various types of bones for dogs (big bones, small bones, chicken bones, dinosaur bones, etc.). Make a purchase and the group will serenade you before you leave.[167]
  • Doggie Duty Soundtrack — A Season 37 ad analogous to the ones for the Bunny Business and Horse Play soundtracks that predate it. Here, Randy Newman (Fred Armisen), Florence Welch (episode host Katy Perry), and "the guy from Spin Doctors" (Andy Samberg) contribute tunes to a "heartwarming" animated movie about "12 puppies selected for jury duty."[168]
  • Donald Trump's House of Wings – Trump (as himself) promotes his own buffalo chicken wing restaurant that was once "a defunct Meineke muffler shop in Englewood, New Jersey." He's helped by endorser David Crosby (Horatio Sanz) and chicken-costumed employees (Seth Meyers, Kenan Thompson, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph) who sing a jingle set to "Jump (For My Love)".[169]
  • Don't Buy Stuff You Can't Afford – Pitchman Chris Parnell promotes a book about money management to a clueless couple (Amy Poehler and episode host Steve Martin).[170]
  • Don' You Go Rounin' Roun to Re Ro — A film trailer for "the toughest, grittiest, most British crime drama of the year," one that appears to be about a reformed criminal (Bill Hader) who's forced back into the business... that is, if the audience can comprehend the Cockney dialects and slang.[171][172]
  • Dopenhagen and Happy Daze – David Carradine plays a cowboy who likes to get high on marijuana he can chew instead of smoke. Parody of Copenhagen chewing tobacco.[173]
  • Downton Abbey — At first, it appears to be a trailer for the motion picture revival of the beloved British TV series, right down to the film's premise (Downton is readied for a visit by the King and Queen). But it's peppered with unflattering quotes from critics (e.g. "Were the stakes in the show always this low?" asks A. O. Scott). The stealthy reveal at the very end: It's actually a promo for Joker, admitting that that comic book film is not perfect, "but at least stuff happens."[174]
  • Dr. Deborah Birx Scarves — Dr. Birx (Chloe Fineman), White House response coordinator during the COVID-19 pandemic, finds it frustrating that all the public pays attention to during her briefings are the scarves adorning her outfit. But in this digital-exclusive ad from May 2020, she leans in by creating a line of scarves, including one that literally says "Screw you, I'm a doctor," another in bird patterns (because Birx loves birds), and others made from periodic tables and actual CDC statements ("If this is the only thing you're zeroing in on while I'm talking, let's make it count").[175]
  • Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice – A 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".[176]
  • Dr. Uncle Jimmy's Smokehouse and Outpatient Surgical Facility – A shady clinic that offers semi-professional surgery and mediocre barbecue cuisine.[177]
  • The Drew Barrymore Show — The daytime talk show gets parodied in this Season 46 promo.

  • Duncan Hines Brownie Husband – a brownie treat shaped like a life-sized man, designed specifically for the single woman.[180]

  • Duolingo for Talking to Children — Episode host Kristen Stewart uses this instructional app to have meaningful dialogues and other interactions with children.[182]
  • DynaCorp – An announcer (voice of Chris Parnell) confuses Jessica Simpson with food products similar to Chicken of the Sea-brand tuna.

  • Farrow & Ball — This ad starts out with Aidy Bryant telling her brother and his wife (Beck Bennett and episode host Kristen Stewart) how she used this premium paint, imported from Great Britain, to make her living room pop with vivid color (or "co-LOOUR" as Bryant pronounces the Oxford English Dictionary spelling). But it gradually turns into a raising of familial issues: How Bryant has been running through her share of the family's inheritance (buying paint at $110/gallon), who she's been hooking up with (some shirtless guy she found on Facebook Marketplace), and the parentage of Bennett and Stewart's baby.[202]
  • The Fault in Our Stars 2: The Ebola in Our Everything — A trailer for a sequel to the 2014 film about two teens with cancer who fall in love, only here Olive (episode host Sarah Silverman) has the Ebola virus, which severely tampers paramour Theodore's (Taran Killam) attraction to her.[203]
  • Fashion Coward — A clothing store tailored for women with a fragile self-image, offering items (e.g. brown sweaters, gray sweatshirts, no bathing suits) that suggest "the general idea of a person" (e.g. "ideal juror," "goes on cruises with parents"). Store features also help alleviate the trauma of clothes shopping, including faraway mirrors, quick-burning clothes (for those unsure about wearing it), and knock-out gas if a customer spends more than 30 seconds in the dressing room (a big, strong bodyguard will finish the shopping for the unconscious customer).[204]

  • The Game of Life: DACA Edition — from April 2018, this topical variation on the classic board game forces players who pull a "dreamer" card to take an alternative path where they must "work three jobs," dodge ICE agents, and face bureaucratic hoops.

  • Gangsta Bitch Barbie – new Barbie doll perpetuates stereotypes of black people living in the ghetto (the doll comes with Jolly Ranchers, a pack of Newports, and a restraining order against her boyfriend, Tupac Ken). Parodies use of hip hop culture in advertisement.[222]

It's not the sunny place from TV, however, as the street's memorable characters (Big Bird, The Count, Cookie Monster, Snuffy, Prairie Dawn, and Elmo) are depicted as sex workers, drug addicts, homeless beggars, or criminals.

  • Holding Your Own B--bs Magazine – Episode host Sarah Michelle Gellar is topless in this ad promoting a magazine exclusively dedicated to photos of male and female celebrities cupping their breasts.

  • ISIS — A controversial Season 40 parody of a Toyota Camry ad that featured a proud father driving his daughter to the airport, where she departs for U.S. Army training. Here, however, the daughter (episode host Dakota Johnson) is being picked up not by an Army representative but by Islamic State militants, as her father (Taran Killam) looks on with apprehension.[301] The ad was both blasted for mining comedy out of ISIS' atrocious actions and applauded for daring to ridicule the terrorist group.[302]

The closing tag line: "Give the gift of Lexus, and definitely talk it over first."[344]
  • Liberty Medical — Wilford Brimley (episode host John Goodman) begins his pitch for this medical supply delivery service by explaining how, with "dye-a-beetuss", he has to take extra care of his health, but continually qualifies, and admits to exaggerations, until by the end, he's described hiding a "food boner" over delivery of $200 worth of pork ribs to his house, never having moved fast enough to sweat, and the fact that he may not even have diabetes—his doctor "just thinks I look like the kinda guy who would have it".[345]

  • Lincoln MKC — Episode host Jim Carrey lampoons Matthew McConaughey's existential pitchwork for Lincoln's crossover utility vehicle in this trio of ads. McConaughey gets so lost in his deep thoughts that in the third ad, he drives right through an Allstate commercial parody, hitting Allstate pitchman Dennis Haysbert (Kenan Thompson) in the process. Carrey would later reprise this spoof in the Celebrity Jeopardy sketch in SNL's 40th Anniversary Special.[351]
  • Lite BeerBill Cosby (Eddie Murphy), much as he does with Jell-O, promotes the virtues of Lite to a table of children in this Season 6 ad, including telling them Fat Albert drinks it ("soon he won't be fat anymore, he'll just be Albert") and pouring it into their cupped hands (to demonstrate how "light" it is).[352]
  • Little Brothers — An ad similar in vein to Peyton Manning's "United Way" commercial; here, Manning's younger brother Eli is ambassador of a mentoring program for young boys who need a strong, male role model in their lives — and someone to beat up their mean older brothers (one of which, played by Andy Samberg, is locked in the trunk of a car and mistakenly referred to as "Peyton").

  • Macy's — For its 2019 holiday sale, the department store promotes discounts on men's blazers; cashmere tops; and for kids, clothes they'll immediately loathe because they're itchy, too tight, will soil easily (due to not making it to the bathroom in time), and cause their parents to lose their temper while trying to keep them neat. The closing tag line: "The clothes they'll hate create the memories you'll love."[366]

  • Mellen — Men are staying at home more, but there's no daytime talk show that caters to them. So, "ABC thought about it for 10 seconds" and came up with "the male Ellen," hosted by a guy who posted a lot on 4chan (episode host Jason Sudeikis in an Ellen DeGeneres wig) and, in this promo from Season 47, presents his own Ellen-style yet male-oriented set of interviews, viral segments, and sneak-up pranks including Kyrie Irving (Chris Redd) getting a surprise COVID-19 vaccination.[383]
  • Mel's Char Palace – Mel (Dan Aykroyd), with help from a saw-wielding "Mrs. Mel" (Gilda Radner), promotes his steakhouse on "Route 17, Paramus" where diners select their own steer, cuts and portions ("You stun it, you cut it, you charbroil it").[384][385]
  • Mercury Mistress – This spoof of luxury automobile ads promotes "a car so sexy, you'll just want to have sex with it" (because a rubber vagina is hidden behind its license plate).[386]

  • Michael Braslow's Santa Traps — If you're sick and tired of Santa Claus creeping around your house every December, writer/inventor Michael Braslow (episode host Martin Freeman) recommends his bear trap-style product designed to capture Santa, though it clearly traps more bears than jolly ol' elves. Braslow's sorrowful wife (Cecily Strong) also appears to explain why Santa is at risk: Michael hasn't been the same since being hit in the head by a hockey puck. A cut-for-time ad from 2014.[388]
  • Michael Bublé Christmas Duets - the singer, appearing as himself, follows up his solo holiday album with this collection of seasonal duets with celebrities who are the opposite of Bublé's elegant charm, among them a starstruck Taylor Swift (Kristen Wiig), a vamping Justin Bieber (episode host Jimmy Fallon), a wisecracking Russell Brand (also Fallon), and a gun-wielding M.I.A. (Nasim Pedrad).[389]
  • Michael Phelps Diet – The Olympic champion swimmer shows his "eat whatever you want, and as much as you want" diet, one that, by virtue of its high-calorie count (12,000, the actual number of calories Phelps was required to consume while training), is almost certainly fatal to anyone who's not an Olympic-caliber athlete. Subway pitchman Jared Fogle appears, stating "this diet sucks a foot long".[390]

    • Mike's Fountainry, from Season 34, has Mike and Lexie telling how porcelain fountains will turn your home into a mansion, while Mike's visibly nervous son-in-law Nick (episode host Ryan Reynolds) reassures viewers that "I come to you" to handle installation and repairs.[394]
  • Milsford Spring Water – Tom Bodett narrates as a bottled water's unusually "rich history" is re-enacted: Rather than share a pure spring creek with neighboring Dunbee, the Massachusetts town of Milsford brutally destroys Dunbee and most of its residents — "over 107… days ago. You probably heard about it on the TV".[395]

The man, however, is not Ashley's father but her family's "Morgan Stanley guy" (dad Fred Armisen meekly greets Ashley in the car).[399] A parody of the investment bank's "One Client at a Time" campaign that dramatized the family-like bond between its agents and their clients.

  • My Drunk Boyfriend — For the woman who longs to care for their inebriated boyfriend, there's this life-sized animatronic doll that comes pre-programmed with slurring speech and inappropriate actions (e.g. urinating in the clothes hamper, bringing a burnt pizza to bed, crying over a dead, unknown relative, and passing up a glass of water to have one more beer).

O[edit]

In part one, Ben Affleck (playing himself) sells his wife (played by Amy Poehler) to two burly mob members after losing a bet during a Russian Roulette match.[434] In part two, a businessman (Seth Meyers) calls his friend for the number of a Dutch man who can help him remove a Thai hooker who ended up dead after he had sex with her.[435] In the final part, Seth's businessman character is back and on the phone with the Dutchman about the removal of a dead prostitute — but this time the prostitute is a male. 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.[436]

A third one that only appeared in the dress rehearsal version of the season 37 finale with Mick Jagger as host and musical guest featured Jagger as Denny "A Bit Weird Innit" Cumberbatch, a flamboyant, Russell Brand-esque Cockney British comedian whose punchline is "A bit weird, innit?".

  • Paxil—Second-Term Strength — An anti-depressant made especially for Barack Obama (Jay Pharoah) as he tries to deal with his second term as president and all of the scandals and failures (such as the Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal, General Petraeus's sex scandal, and Obamacare).

  • Pelotaunt — Peloton's fitness equipment features streaming video classes with positive encouragement. But for exercise buffs desiring results through negative reinforcement, this fitness bike provides such "patented passive aggressive technology" as video instructors offering withering judgement instead of corny speeches; video screens with gaslighting statistics and camera views of your flabby butt; and comical music (specifically the theme from Curb Your Enthusiasm) rather than upbeat melodies. As one user (Beck Bennett) puts it, "I feel mentally broken down, but, hey, I can see my abs."[443]
  • 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 LGBTQ and gender identity issues.

  • President Barbie — The latest addition to the Barbie doll line, complete with sunglasses, smart phone, and a presidential seal-adorned podium. Much to Mattel's chagrin, however, girls feel ambivalent about it ("Feels like she's trying too hard," says one). A May 2016 commentary on, as HuffPost puts it, "a generation so progressive that the president's gender is irrelevant."[455]
  • Press Conference Play Set — For kids who find watching TV press conferences boring and wand to get in on the act (or need to if they must discuss broken windows or not finishing their dinner), there's this play set that features a podium, background curtain, microphone, and other things that make a press conference a press conference.[456]

  • Punk'd: Barely LegalAshton Kutcher (episode host Justin Timberlake) releases a DVD of his Punk'd pranks that were never shown on TV due to legal issues, such as Fred Durst (Jeff Richards) getting mugged, Christina Aguilera (Maya Rudolph) suffering from morning sickness after Kutcher steals her birth control pills, and 50 Cent (Finesse Mitchell) shooting Dax Shepard (Will Forte) dressed as a vampire (which, to Kutcher, is a "double punk" because Dax didn't know he was going to get shot and 50 Cent didn't know the vampire was Dax).[459]
  • 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.[460]

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. The tag line: "Better tasting, 'cause it's mined".[461]
  • The Quotable Caddyshack — Episode host Bill Murray, with a cameo assist from fellow Caddyshack star Chevy Chase, promotes a leather-bound version of the frequently quoted film's script, suitable for reference in everyday life (e.g. job interviews, wedding vows).[462]

R[edit]

  • Racists for Trump — Airing in March 2016 during the heat of the Republican Party presidential primaries, this campaign ad features a cross section of "real Americans" expressing why they support candidate Donald Trump, from his being "a winner" and "authentic" to being "the only [candidate] who's actually created jobs." Only later are these voters revealed, without subtlety, to be Islamophobes, white supremacists, book burners, and outright Klansmen and Nazi sympathizers.[463]
  • RAD 3000 — Pitchman Spencer Mason (Chris Parnell) and NYFD officer Peter Venelli (Fred Armisen) promote this fire detector that can potentially save your life and gets you moving to hit music of the 1980s.

Fire Alarm Raps ("If you hear this [opening beats of "Bust a Move" play], be sure to bust a move outta yo house!").[464]
  • The Raunchiest Miss Rita — A promo for a spinoff of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel finds Midge Maisel (episode host and Marvelous star Rachel Brosnahan) inspiring club housekeeper Rita Mae Johnson (Leslie Jones) to try standup comedy; Rita and her very-blue material become a spotlight-stealing hit.[465]

  • Rectrix — A "unique all-natural, fast-acting erectile dysfunction remedy" men can insert up their rectum.[468]
  • Red Flag Perfume — an ad promoting a Chanel fragrance for women whose behavior and life choices belie their elegant appearance. Jon Hamm is the narrator; Kristen Wiig portrays the woman who has, among other things, lived in Las Vegas for 11 years and previously dated a club promoter.[469]
  • The Regal Promenade Pavilion — A venue that "makes your wedding look like a wedding," featuring everything from exquisite decorations and elegant flatware to running-and-screaming 8-year-olds and stray balloons stuck in the air vent.[470]
  • Rick's Model Ts — A "promotional film" for the very first used car lot. Rick (Mike O'Brien) claims to be crazy for selling cars at such low prices, but wife Daisy (episode host Tina Fey) is clearly certifiably so ("I smashed a mirror 'cause I saw a woman in there who's crazy").[471]
  • Roach-Ex Plus — Cockroaches don't stand a chance against this bug killer, especially in the hands of a jealous husband who uses it on a roach (episode host Don Cheadle) who had sex with his wife.[472]
  • Romano Tours — Joe Romano (episode host Adam Sandler) promises beautiful tours of Italy but can't promise the vacationer will improve personally ("If you're sad now, you might still feel sad there, okay?").[473]
  • Rosé Zone — Analogous to NFL RedZone, this channel features only the trashiest moments from all of reality television, so you don't have to sit through the not-as-raunchy parts ("It's blood lust for women").[78]
  • Rosetta Stone — Users praise the CALL service in this 2013 ad, among them men who've picked up such Thai language phrases as “How much?” “Is that for the whole night?” and “Oh my God, what have I done?”[474] The obvious allusions to Thailand's prostitution trade prompted an attempt by the country's culture minister to have the spoof removed from YouTube.[475]
  • Royal Deluxe II — This 1977 car commercial parody demonstrates the smoothness of the car's ride by having a mohel perform a circumcision in the back seat while the car is driven at 40 MPH down a bumpy road.[476]
  • Rubik's Grenade — a parody of Rubik's Cube promotes what may be "the last puzzle you'll never solve".[477]
  • Russell & Tate Law Firm — This parody of ads for "ambulance-chasing" attorneys promote a law firm whose partners are two intimidating black men with extensive "resumés" who repeatedly pledge to "git yo' money".[478]
  • Russell Stover Black History Heart-Shaped Box — Valentine's Day coincides with Black History Month, making February the perfect time for white men to show their black girlfriends that they both love them and honor their culture through this set of candies molded in the visages of noted black figures (and Bill Clinton).[479]

S[edit]

  • Safelite — In this Season 43 parody of testimonials for the auto glass repair company, Safelite glass repair technician Ken (played by Beck Bennett) makes repeated visits to a mother and daughter (Aidy Bryant and Melissa Villaseñor, respectively) to repair their minivan windshield. But it's discovered that Ken's been smashing the windshield each time, an obsession that leaves Mom infuriated. It also raised the real-life ire of Safelite, who called out the ad for bad taste on Twitter the next day ("Our techs are our heroes. #notcool").[480] The ad aired on SNL only once, the episode of October 7, 2017. By the time the episode was rerun on NBC the next month, the ad was pulled completely, replaced in the full-length on-air and online episode replays by another filmed segment (a rap video featuring Bennett, Kyle Mooney, and episode host Gal Gadot called "The Last Fry") that had been "cut for time" from the original October 7 airing.[481] (As of 2019, the Safelite cut was reversed on Hulu.)
  • 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".[482]
  • Samuel Adams Jack-O Pumpkin Ale — "Real Bostonians" sample this autumnal version of the popular Boston-brewed beer. Most of them enjoy it… except for "Sean S." (episode host Bill Burr), who thinks it tastes disgusting but isn't above having more generous samples ("It's kinda sweet n' s**t, but, you know, if there's nothin' else to drink…").[483]
  • Santi-Wrap — Rather than placing toilet tissue on Santa Claus' lap (as Laraine Newman initially does here), Dan Aykroyd recommends this "colorful, decorative and hygienic way to protect yourself" from germs part-time mall Santas carry, especially the jolly ol' elf in this setting (depicted by John Belushi as a liquor-swilling vagrant).[484]
  • Saturday Night Live compilation videosBroadway Video's SNL compilations get the self-parody treatment in two ads from the 24th season's first two episodes:
    • The Best of the First 20 Minutes of Saturday Night Live, which posits that the best moments of any 90-minute SNL episode come from its first 20, specifically those from the Cameron Diaz-hosted season premiere on which this ad aired.[224]
    • The Best of Horatio Sanz, which, since Sanz had joined the cast only a week earlier, is limited in content (e.g. walk-ons, goodnights) and has old skits from a Dan Aykroyd compilation as filler.[485]
  • 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. When the water is turned on, however, it magically transforms into a sparkling clean pool filled with attractive, and presumably gay, men wearing bikini swim trunks, whom the housesitters merrily cavort with.[486]
  • Scrotox — A Botox-like male enhancement medication that is shot directly into the scrotum. As pitchman (and episode host) Alec Baldwin puts it, "Aren't you ready for your prunes to turn into plums?"[487]
  • Settl — As its name implies, this mobile dating app is aimed at women willing to settle for dates and relationships with, as one user puts it, "normal guys with characteristics I am now willing to overlook."[488]
  • She's Got a D!%k — A trailer for a romantic comedy film starring episode host Justin Timberlake as a man who falls for a woman (played by Nasim Pedrad) who just happens to have a little extra plumbing downstairs.[489]
  • Shirt in a Can — Tim Meadows spills something on his shirt, so he sprays on this product.[490]
  • Short & Curly — The shampoo men use to keep their pubic hairs clean and shiny. Also promoted is Short, Dark, Curly, and Lovely, "but that, my friends, is strictly for the brothers".[491]
  • Sleepy Boy 2000 — Tim Kazurinsky purchases this do-it-yourself kit that, when assembled, creates a weapon that detects and destroys cars whose alarms go off in the middle of the night, enabling him to get a good night's sleep.[492]
  • Sofa King — furniture store ad featuring a family of apparent Middle Eastern origins with thick accents. Everything in the ad is promoted with the adjective "Sofa King" (as in, "It's Sofa King comfortable!"), but the accents make it sound like "so fucking".[493]
  • The Sopranos Diaries — After adapting Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries into a TV series, The CW does the same with The Sopranos, projecting Tony (Bobby Moynihan) and his "family" as high school students in the early 1980s, rad outfits and all.[494]
  • Space Mistakes — Promoted as being on par with other cinematic space epics as Gravity and The Martian, this film dramatically depicts what happens when astronauts makes rather innocuous mistakes in space (e.g. cracked helmets, unfastened seat belts at launch).[495]
  • Speed — Veteran SNL writer Anne Beatts makes a rare on-screen appearance as a housewife able to happily multi-task, thanks to a diet pill you don't have to be overweight to use. Obtainable from your doctor, your neighbor's doctor, your college roommate's doctor, etc.[496]
  • 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."[497]
  • Spotlightz Acting Camp for Serious Kids — Two ads from Season 39 promote a camp where still-very-bright-eyed child actors can hone their talents by recreating adult-oriented film and TV work (e.g. Training Day, Breaking Bad, The Wolf of Wall Street).[498][499]
  • Sproingo — This erectile dysfunction treatment works in concert with the male body by making "a sensuous, audible tone" (i.e. a cartoonish spring sound effect) at the onset of erection.[500]
  • Spud Beer — "Filled with the full, rich flavor of potatoes", this beer is "brewed for people who can't taste the difference", in this case an electroshock subject (writer Alan Zweibel). The end tagline: "Spud! The beer that made Boise famous!"[501]
  • Stanx — From the makers of Spanx comes this undergarment that, rather than let embarrassing flatulence pass out of the body (as normal underwear would do), traps it inside the lining—even though the gas buildup creates an abnormally big bulge around the buttocks.[502]
  • Starbucks Verismo Home Brewing System — This parody of Starbucks' single-serve coffee maker recreates the experience of ordering at Starbucks, including getting the "order" wrong (it brews tea when you wanted latte), misspelling the name on the mug ("Amorfa" instead of "Martha"), and leaving broken stir sticks and sugar packs on the counter. The January 2013 ad, in its spoofing of Starbucks' baristas, generated calls of racism and classism in depicting both Verismo and Verquonica, "a larger non-functioning machine" that only talks smack with Verismo about the user.[503][504]
  • Star Trek: Ego QuestParamount+ promotes an upcoming addition to the Star Trek franchise, a series that follows the voyages of the S.S. New Shepard; it's cowboy-hatted captain, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos (episode host Owen Wilson); and a "crew of random weirdos" making contact with the likes of Virgin Galactic's Richard Branson (Alex Moffat) and SpaceX's Elon Musk (Mikey Day).[505]
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens Toys & Action Figures — Toys based on the film that are "great for everyone ages 6 and up — way up" (i.e. adult-age sci-fi geeks).[506]
  • Steve Martin's All-Natural Penis Beauty Cream (New Formula) — a parody of the celebrity infomercial boom.[507]
  • Stunt Performers Association of America — This PSA from Season 46 finds a pentet of motion picture stunt performers recreating action moves from the safety of home, while encouraging fans to also take precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The group includes a trio of action stunt artists (Mikey Day, Ego Nwodim, and Chris Redd), and two stunt performers (Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon) whose forte is slapstick comedy in children's movies.[508]
  • Sub Shack — a parody of the Subway ad campaign that featured Jared Fogle, with customers of the fast-food restaurant gaining weight rather than losing it.[509]
  • The Sunday National Enquirer — The supermarket tabloid markets to those who want to spend their Sundays reading celebrity gossip instead of highbrow journalism in this spoof of subscription offers for The New York Times' Sunday editions.[510]
  • Super Bass-O-Matic '76 — This parody of Ronco ads features Dan Aykroyd pureeing raw fish in a blender, as well as Laraine Newman delivering the happy pitch line, "Wow, that's terrific bass."[511]
  • Super Feud — "When two of South America's biggest singing stars have a feud, you're the winner." So says announcer Don Pardo in introducing this "special TV offer" for a compilation album of music from Jorge Montenero (episode host Patrick Swayze) and Raul Valendez (Dana Carvey), who sing about their bitter rivalry (e.g. fan mail volume, plastic surgery claims) to the tune of "Guantanamera."[512]
  • Suppressex — an anti-arousal medicine taken to prevent erections from occurring at inopportune moments.[513]
  • Swiffer Sleepers — Mom Amy Poehler uses these blanket sleeper-sized cleaning cloths to pick up dust and dirt wherever her kids crawl, roll, or jump around their house ("Who says sweeping floors can't be fun?").[514]
  • Swiftamine – a medication designed to fight bouts of vertigo caused by the realization that you enjoy Taylor Swift's music.[515]
  • Swill — Bill Murray extols the qualities of this putrid mineral water "dredged from Lake Erie", the packaging of which looks nearly identical to Perrier. 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.[516]

T[edit]

  • Taco Town — a restaurant parody of Taco Bell, selling a new taco with layer after layer of the outer crust, finished with a Chicago-style pizza and blueberry pancake, and "deep-fried to perfection". "Pizza?" Andy Samberg says of the product, "Now that's what I call a taco!"[517]
  • Tampax Secrets — Cut for time from Phoebe Waller-Bridge's appearance as host in Season 45, this ad shows Waller-Bridge, Aidy Bryant, and Melissa Villaseñor using these tampons that are hidden in containers made to look like less embarrassing items (dog poop, a dead mouse, etc.), all the better to not let bystanders know they have to get up and care for their period.[518]
  • Target — Two ads for the department store chain that has everything you need for Thanksgiving:
    • A November 2016 ad highlights an array of food, cookware, and home decor… as well as 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 that month's election.[519]
    • A November 2021 ad acknowledges that hosting your family "can be... a whole damn thing." For that, there are discounts on such items as Nate's Humane Tofurkey Loaf (to satisfy your sister's vegetarian boyfriend), Apple noise-cancelling earbuds ("for when Grandpa weighs in on social issues"), and various wines and beers (to get through conversations about cryptocurrency, relatives recently dying, etc.).[520]
  • Tasty Toaster Tarts — Teenager Jason (episode host Chance the Rapper) unloads a bevy of sugary treats from the kitchen cupboard for him and his friends to snack on after school. After Jason's friends inquire how his strict parents allowed him to stock up on so much sweet stuff, they notice suspicious signs (e.g. bloodstains, a fridge wrapped in duct tape) that Jason may have done something rash. All is good, however, when Jason produces this Pop Tarts-like product (its tagline: "Keeps Kids Happy").[521]
  • Tech-Pack – At the airport, Jason Sudeikis shows harried fellow traveler Kristen Wiig a new wearable pouch system that can hold and activate one's electronic devices (mp3 players, PDAs, cellphones, etc.) with a joystick... but also tends to scare other passengers because of its uncanny resemblance to a suicide belt. The closing tag line: "You'll be blown away."[522]
  • Teddy Bear Holding a Heart – Will Forte gives sweetheart Amy Poehler this "perfect way to say 'our love is eternal.'" Even though it's literally a teddy bear holding a heart (it's still attached to the box it came in), and is available anywhere ("Book stores, Hallmark's, drug stores, Wal-Mart, 7-11, I'm guessing wherever you buy milk."), Poehler accepts it and shows it off as if it were expensive jewelry. An exquisitely-lensed spoof of ads for jewelers (e.g. De Beers) and retailers who heavily promote their wears as the perfect way to show true love on Valentine's Day.[523]
  • Testicules — Andy Samberg and his scent turn lots of heads in this cut-for-time parody of fragrance ads from Season 39, thanks to using this "cologne for 'down there.'"[524]
  • 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."[525][526]
  • That's Not Yogurt! — A spoof of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!" ads and the TCBY frozen-yogurt chain.[c] 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!"[527]
  • Them Trumps — A promo for a show "from the producers of Empire" that ponders what would happen if Donald Trump and his family were black. Centering on President "Darius Trump" (Kenan Thompson), the tease finds Darius supremely confident in the face of criminal investigation and sexual scandal (“They can't lock me up!”), but quickly capitulating to the consequences when the feds storm in (“And even though I may be black—” “Freeze, Trump! You're under arrest!” “Yeah, that sounds about right.”).[528]
  • thirtysomething Cereal — "From the makers of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cereal" comes to this breakfast food made for the baby boomer/yuppie generation. It has "no fat, no sugar, no salt," and is made in images of characters from the angst-laden ABC drama ("I got an oat bran Elliot").[529]
  • This is U.S. — a promo for an 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. Brown).[530]
  • Thomas Peepers Insurance — An insurance company that keeps an eye on their clients' safety and well being — literally, as evidenced by agent Bill Hader peeping through the windows of one client's home (only to be caught by spotlights and police sirens).[531]
  • Tim and Meat's One-Stop Rocky Horror Shop – Tim Curry and Meat Loaf (both appearing as themselves) are proprietors of a store with props and costumes based on and to wear and use for midnight screenings of the 1975 cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show.[532]
  • Timecrowave — In this infomercial spoof, inventor Gram Lampton (episode host Alec Baldwin) promotes a microwave oven that sends fully cooked food back in time to when you knew you were hungry — despite a self-evident risk of temporal paradoxes arising.[533]
  • Tinyballs — A trailer for a film "from the makers of Moneyball" about a Billy Beane-like GM (Taran Killam) who, instead of using sabermetrics to build a better baseball team, relies on a suspicious-looking man (episode host Ben Stiller) to inject strength — literally, through steroids — into his inept club, unhealthy side effects notwithstanding.[534]
  • Toilet Death Ejector — This ad posits that the greatest embarrassment of senior citizens is being found dead on the toilet. As pitched by episode host John Mulaney, this mechanized device helps alleviate those fears. If the user feels they're about to die, they can press a button on the toilet, which projects them through the air and onto their bed. Not only will it also automatically flush the toilet, but it'll also drop a book onto their person (to let those discovering their corpse believe they died wise).[535]
  • Tortumatic – the ultimate way to show others that you can take the pain. Charles Rocket demonstrates it, getting punched repeatedly by a number of boxing gloves, and slamming his hand with a mallet.[536]
  • Totino's Pizza Rolls — a series of commercials airing over three straight Super Bowl weekends in the mid-2010s focusing on a dutiful housewife (Vanessa Bayer) serving Pizza Rolls to "my hungry guys" watching the big game in the living room.
    • 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.[537]
    • The second ad, from 2016, starts as a straight-up Super Bowl-themed Pizza Rolls ad, complete with the "hungry guys" reacting to the big game in unison. But the wife discovers that the TV isn't even on (it's just a blank screen), and when she fearfully grabs a pair of scissors for self-defense, the guys turn around all at once, revealing icy stares with solid black eyes. The end-of-ad twist: It's actually a promotion for the recently revived TV series The X-Files.[538]
    • The third ad, from 2017, gets really steamy: 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.[539]
  • Tourism Board of Africa — This Season 46 ad positions the continent as "the #1 [travel] destination for divorcees of a certain age." The live skit features background beach views of strapping, shirtless men; suggestive double entendres ("The mountains, the ranges… the rhythm, the pounding"); and testimonials/invitations from a trio of divorced women played by Kate McKinnon, Heidi Gardner, and episode host Adele (who breaks into giggles several times).[540]
  • Transportation Security Administration — Feeling lonely and wanting a little "human interaction" during the holiday season? How about going through a TSA airport security check, where you can receive a physical pat-down if you refuse full-body scanning ("It's our business to touch yours"). A Season 36 parody of suggestive ads for escort services.[541]
  • Tremfalta — A medication that treats irritable bowel syndrome by slowing the digestive process, which increases the intensity of bowel movements. This is evidenced by the literal stink left by a mother (episode host Carey Mulligan) in the restroom of her son's school music recital after taking Tremfalta, much to the disgust of janitor Kenan Thompson and principal Aidy Bryant.[542]
  • Tres Equis — Two Season 38 parodies of Dos Equis beer and its "Most Interesting Man in the World" campaign find "The Son of the Most Interesting Man in the World" (episode host Joseph Gordon-Levitt) living large ("He has multiple parody Twitter accounts"), impressing the ladies ("He can make a woman cringe, just by entering a room"), and enjoying beer that's "one equis better than my dad's beer, because he was never there for me." It leads to a father-son spat with The Most Interesting Man himself (played by Jason Sudeikis) in the second of the two ads.[543][544]
  • Tressant Suprème – Kelly Ripa spoofs the numerous hair coloring ads in which she has appeared. In this parody, Ripa prefers Tressant Suprème because it contains "just a little bit of crack cocaine", thus explaining her well-known "peppy" persona.[545]
  • Trilocaine – a scalp-itch medication with extremely disturbing side effects (e.g. "90% of users experience an instantaneous and horrifying sleep paralysis containing a bleak vision of mortality").[546]
  • Triopenin — Airing during the first Weekend Update, this ad promotes an arthritis medication in a bottle that's virtually impossible to open.[547][66]
  • Triple-Trac Razor — When this ad was written for SNL's first episode, men's razors hadn't progressed past two blades. But this three-blade razor (the first two grab the whisker, the third actually makes the cut) promises to leave men's faces "as smooth as a billiard ball." The bet here is that "you'll believe anything" you see in razor ads.[548]
  • Trump Addicts of America — Supporters of Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election express clear disdain for incumbent Donald Trump ("He's historically bad for the country," says one). But they're also concerned that if Biden wins, the next four years will feel different (i.e. less angrier) without an endless stream of bad news and worse actions from Trump and his administration. The closing tag line: "You know [Trump's] bad for you, but it's hard to imagine life without him."[549]
  • Turlington's Lower Back Tattoo Remover – a product that, "when applied once every hour for 72 straight hours", slowly burns away unwanted lower back tattoos. "That tingling means it's working!" Tagline: "Because it won't be cool forever".[550]
  • Turtle Shirt — Men's shirts that are made from the same materials as a turtle's shell, allowing the wearer to hide from unwanted or embarrassing situations.[551]
  • Twinings Extreme — "An English athlete needs an English sports drink," hence this line of tea designed to help assure peak athletic performance. Flavors include "English Breakfast XL" (to refuel), "Darjeeling Octane" (to replenish), and "Earl Grey RX" (to recover and "be at my best for 3 to 5 days of a cricket match"). Episode host Emma Thompson is featured in this cut-for-time ad from 2019.[552]
  • Tylenol B.M. – a laxative product shown to cause you to defecate while you sleep.[553]

U[edit]

  • Uncle Jemima's Pure Mash Liquor — With references to Uncle Remus in Disney's Song of the South, this subtle barb at products that perpetuate racial stereotypes finds Aunt Jemima's husband (Tracy Morgan) promoting liquor that's "more fun than pancakes" thanks to its 95% alcohol content by volume ("That means you get f***ed up for less money!").[554]
  • Under Underground Rock Festival – A series of commercials which poke fun at the crazy promotions at alternative concerts, crazy special guests, as well as the extremes people will go to defy conformity. Done in the style of Gathering of the Juggalos infomercials.[555]
  • United Way with Peyton Manning – Manning (as himself) appears in this 2007 spoof of self-serving philanthropic public-service ads by popular athletes. 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.[556]
  • University of Westfield — An ad for an online college that teaches students how to avoid discussing going to an online college. As one student (portrayed by Nasim Pedrad) states, Westfield taught her "that going to an Internet college is not a thing that would make people want to hire me."[557]
  • Unstoppable — A trailer spoof of the 2010 motion picture starring Denzel Washington (Jay Pharoah) and Chris Pine (Taran Killam) is peppered with humorous put-downs by the train engineer leads and use of the Chrysler Building as a form of measurement by Rosario Dawson's (episode host Scarlett Johansson) yardmaster.[558]
  • Urigro – parody of male enhancement medications; a pill that gives its male users an absurdly long and strong stream of urine.[559]
  • UPS – starring Bill Hader as ad man/actor Andy Azula, making fun of the prevalence of Azula's ad campaign as well as his hairstyle.[560]
  • 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.)[561]

V[edit]

  • Valtrex – A husband repeatedly affirms his fidelity to his wife during a commercial for a pill that treats genital herpes.[562]
  • Veritas Ultrasound HD – Instead of a tiny monitor, the ultrasound is displayed on a widescreen HD television. It even has options to display a football helmet on the fetus (for dads-to-be missing a Sunday football because they're accompanying the wife to see the ultrasound).[563]
  • Verizon 4G LTE — Customer Fred Armisen is left confused by salesperson Bill Hader's bizarre explanations of how Verizon's high-speed data service will work on a very wide variety of smart devices.[564]
  • Voting PSA — In the same vein as the 2018 Democratic Party ad (see above), this "cut for time" PSA, posted online the weekend before the 2020 presidential election, finds various Americans communicating trust in the electoral process, contentment in voting early… and preparing for the worst, as evidenced by the likes of Kyle Mooney buying a crossbow; Beck Bennett adding a safe door to his pantry; Heidi Gardner unsuccessfully sneaking across the border into Canada; and Kate McKinnon stealing all the contraceptives from a pharmacy. There is no specific sponsor attached (the official title is "Democracy PSA"), but the ad's closing message is clear: "Vote. Like, soon."[565]

W[edit]

  • Wade Blasingame — You wouldn't want a human being humping your leg or digging up your lawn, so why would you let a dog do the same? 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.[566]
  • Waterbed Warehouse — Owner Dom (episode host Martin Freeman) lets wife Janine (Aidy Bryant) be the prominent face and musical voice of "Upper South Dakota's premier waterbed distributor."[567]
  • 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 (episode host Emma Stone) understands.[568]
  • We're Just Friends – Short shorts for men (Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg) whose close friendship is often mistaken for a gay relationship.[569]
  • Where You're Going — A Season 11 parody of beer and champagne ads marketed to the yuppie demographic. Here, Jon Lovitz, Randy Quaid, Damon Wayans, Anthony Michael Hall and others are shown enjoying the good life and their financial successes… until the ad becomes "a message from Almighty God" at the very end, when they're burning in Hell for living spiritually bankrupt, avaricious lives ("You're going to burn, no doubt about it").[570]
  • White Christmas — A trailer for "the first Black holiday movie for a white audience," complete with a Madea-like character (episode host Paul Rudd).[571]
  • Wilson Trap Doors – office trap doors that effectively do away with unwanted guests, clients or employees.[572]
  • Wilson Countersink Flanges and Dorry Flanges – Spokesman Phil Hartman talks up these technically complex industrial supplies, with Rob Schneider and Chris Farley appearing as workmen.[573]
  • Woomba – a self-operating electronic feminine hygiene product that knows when women should use it, whether they want to or not; a parody of the Roomba automatic vacuum system.[574]
  • The Worst of Soul Train — Coughy Robinson (Bobby Moynihan) hosts this Time Life infomercial promoting this DVD collection of the least memorable acts to have performed on the long-running dance & music program Soul Train.[575]
  • Wrangler Open Fly Jeans — Finally, jeans with no-fly so that your parts are always camera-ready, as pitched by Brett Favre (played by Jason Sudeikis)[576]
  • Wrangler Peekaboos — Jeans designed for men to show a little bit of butt cleavage. Will Ferrell appears in this ad cut for time from his November 2019 episode as host.[577]

X[edit]

  • Xanax for Gay Summer Weddings — A new version of the anxiolytic designed for heterosexuals suffering anxiety over attending elaborate gay weddings.[578]

Y[edit]

  • Yard-a-Pult — A product created to launch unwanted trash/deceased pets/etc. over your fence rather than going to the time and expense of disposing of them properly.[579]
  • Your Hometown Board of Tourism — Why spend the holidays in someplace exotic like Hawai'i when this 2012 ad reminds you that your hometown is a much affordable destination. There's the "four-star accommodations of your childhood home," activities such as cleaning out your parents' garage, and exotic attractions such as your old high school.[580]
  • Your House — Looking to get away but can't go anywhere during the COVID-19 pandemic? This amped-up digital exclusive, filmed in Spring 2020, promotes your home as the perfect vacation destination. Visit exciting attractions such as your living room, enjoy convenient amenities including weak Wi-Fi, and dine on whatever expiried food is left in your refrigerator.[581]
  • 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." The cast features Al Pacino (Bill Hader) as the title character, Larry David (episode host Martin Short) as Linus, and Edie Falco (Kate McKinnon) as a prescription-packing Lucy.[582]
  • Yum Bubble Genital Herpes Gum — A fruit-flavored bubble gum that controls genital herpes.[583]

Z[edit]

  • Zillow — Wanna spice up "playtime"? Browsing listings on the real estate website can be your next sexual fantasy… which ends once you click on "Contact Agent" and a nasally-voiced RE/MAX rep (Cecily Strong) wants to schedule a tour. A sensually-filmed ad from Season 46.[584]
  • 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 (episode 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.[585]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Bruce Jenner is now known as Caitlyn Jenner due to gender transition in 2015.[355]
  2. ^ The original airing of The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders misspelled Anjelica Huston's first name as "Angelica," while the online version and all TV reruns have the correct spelling
  3. ^ TCBY'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".
