Old SNL:

"Quarry"--the cereal made from stone.

The Quaalude soap--can't recall the brand name.

"Speed"--the paper bags always cracked me up!

Later SNL:

"Old Glory Robot Insurance"--nothing in the later years has even come close!

The Citibank parody (where the bank keeps calling the customer to harass him) was pretty funny.

And, just a bit of a hijack: The best commercial parody of all time, IMHO, was MadTV's "Come to Canada"--the mother and daughter one. Talk about an unexpected punchline--this one takes the prize!

Not long after the twin-blade razors were introduced, SNL did a commercial about a new triple-blade razor, claiming the 3rd blade cut the beard even closer than the old two blade systems. What made it especially great were that it was done on film instead of video and without the regular cast, so you didn't realize it was a joke until the tagline ("Because you'll believe anything"). What makes it even funnier to think about today is that you can buy razors with four blades.

Maybe we could start an SNL Predicts the Future thread.

Little Chocolate Donuts is fantastic. I especially liked the part where Belushi is casually holding a burning cigarette in his other hand while explaining that "Little Chocolate Donuts have been on MY table since I was a kid."

The Bass-O-Matic. Mmmm, what delicious bass!

Dan Ackroyd's Crazy Eddie commercial--forget the name they used, but the point was that Crazy Eddie was REALLY crazy, selling TVs for 3 cents or something, and Dan was afraid to be alone in a room with him.

Del Slater's Live Beef Restaurant: "YOU pick the cow! YOU slaughter it! YOU eat it!" Complete with Jane Curtin revving up the chainsaw.

Jewess Jeans. Even funnier if you lived in NY and saw those Hebrew National hot dog commercials everywhere. In the 80s they did a take-off with Moammar Khadafy Jeans, not quite as funny.

"Hey, You!" - the perfume for one-night stands (starting with Gilda picking up a guy in a bar and ending with her fleeing in a taxi early the next morning). Ah, the Seventies.

Finally, I forget the name of the cereal, but there was an elaborate parody complete with soft-focus, location farm shooting, and choral music about a cereal made of nothing but rocks. "It's not grown--it's mined!" Jane Curtin was the mom, in a gingham dress and everything, and the cereal was so loud to eat that the little girl of the family had to scream "Wow, crunchy!"

Nitpick: Del Stater ran the rabbit restaurant (where you picked your own rabbit). The beef restaurant was "Mel's Char Palace" with Gilda as Mrs. Mel demonstrating how to use the chainsaw. Both very funny bits.

"So I said, why don't you just call your mom and ask her for the money? Or better yet, take a check out of your wallet, roll it up real tight, and cram it!"

"She gave me several options..."

Petchow brand rat poison. Just add water, and it makes a rich, meaty poison gravy! So powerful it could kill animals much bigger than rats. Look for the bag with the picture of Old Shep on the front.

Am I the only one that remembers the product that gets rid of those unsightly extra fingers? I forget the name, but just paint it on your sixth or seventh fingers, and over the next few days, they gradually shrivel, turn black, and fall off. I'll never forget Victoria Jackson's before and after scenes. "That new secretary is really cute." "Yeah...too bad about those extra fingers."

Later. "Pick you up at seven?" "Let's make it FIVE!"

Here's 2 very obscure ones (but IMHO) incredibly hilarious.

My favorite only ran once but it was hilarious. It started out with the classic Ronco question:
Has this ever happend to you?
Has Tony Orlando ever shown up at your door and offered to rearrange your furniture?
Are you tired of small animals charging their long distance calls to your telephone bill?

Wish I could remember more but I think I laughed myself off my chair after the first 10 seconds.

__________________________________________________________
The second one starts out with a kid putting a paper clip in his mouth and then is warned about the danger of doing so. He is told the precise history of that very paper clip. Among other things it was used to attach the medical record to the blanket of a soldier suffering from dyssentary. It then found its way to a biological weapons lab and a host of other unsanitary locations. I believe it was sponsored by the Old Wives' Tale Foundation.

Does anybody remember either of these?

I seem to remember one from that "SNL Goes Commercial" collection where a bunch of yuppy business people are at a bar/restaurant during lunch hour talking about buying new cars or other similar accomplishments. It's got upbeat music and the voice over talks about how they're on top of the world and stuff and they know "just where they're going." Then it shows a beer and pans down and at the bottom of the bottle it says "HELL." After that, the people are all shown burning in lakes of fire and the voice over says "for your life of empty values and loose morals, you'll burn for all eternity," and it ends with "this is a message from God."

Anyone know the one I'm talking about or any more info?

Bryan Ekers
11-05-2005, 01:34 PM

Yes, the commercial starts with a bunch of them sitting around celebrating that one of their number just sold his condo for five times what he'd paid, and slides into a montage of them driving expensive cars, buying expensive wines, walking quickly through the financial district in designer clothes looking at their Rolexes etc. The background music is an unbeat song:

Where you're going, you've always know it
Where you're going, you're on your way
Where you're going.... your gonna PAY! [shot of HELL on the beer mug, sound of screaming]

The sponsor of the commercial was the "United Council of Churches" or something similar.

The parody of David Naughton's (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0622544/bio) Dr Pepper commercial.

If you watched any TV at all in the late 70's or early 80's, that song was burned into your brain.
"I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper, she's a Pepper,
Wouldn't you like to be a Pepper too?"

Then SNL did their version.
In place of "pepper", substitute the word "homo".

My favorite commercial was for the package delivery service to call when the package is already way overdue. Their slogan was, "If it has to be there tomorrow, call the other guys. If it had to be there 2 weeks ago, call us." They specialized in backdating order slips, damaging the package and blaming acts of God for the damage.

Truth. I shot quite a few for a while. The SNL Film Unit has a coupla interesting things going for it. The same man has been the Director/sometimes writer/ Creative Overlord the entire time. Yes, since 1975. His name is Jim Signorelli. Clever man and god does he know funny. The other thing is that virtually all, if not all, spoofs are shot either in 16mm or 35mm film. Almost none are shot on videotape.

My personal fave? The Julia Childs one with Dan Ackroyd. " It's only a flesh wound... "

My fave of the ones I shot? Top two- The Martha Stewart Topless Christmas Special, and the Viagra spoof with Christopher Walken. ( And much of the cast, coupled off ). Walken and...uh.... god, one of the regulars as his wife. They're sitting in front of a cozy fire ( shot at the infamous Douglas House (http://www.thedouglashouse.com/), and as he speaks about how wonderful Viagra has been for their marriage,her expression goes from whistful to deeply frightened to nauseous. Hilarious silent comedy stuff.

The one that made me laugh the hardest WHILE I was actually shooting? The spoof about the horse glue that used entire horse legs, shoved into a huge steaming cauldron. Yes, those were real horse legs. The cauldron was filled with many gallons of molasses, brought to a near boil, with chunks of dry ice thrown in for smokey effect. Wil Farrell was incredibly funny in that bit.

Fun shoots to do.

That's awesome, Cartooniverse! You should know that long after I decided that the rest of SNL was utter crap, I'd still tune in for the first few minutes in hopes of catching one of the commercials. I always figured they were the only funny parts because their short format prevented the writers from dragging a joke to its death, but it sounds as if they were hilarious because they had a good writer.

"Here honey," says Bill, "I think you'll find that rake will work better if you turn it over this way." "Oh, thanks, dear!"

Tonight's presentation of the "Schmitt's Gay" commercial had different music than it originally had, if I'm not mistaken. The original used a Van Halen tune, whereas tonight the commercial just had some generic guitar rock.

You're not mistaken - I noticed the same thing. I believe the original song was "Beautiful Girls," and the new guitar music vaguely resembled the Van Halen song. Problem is, choreography (or whatever you call it in video) was made for the original song. Anybody know why the change? Did Van Halen's old label sue SNL perhaps? Couldn't find anything on google.

Sorry to distract from the OP, but I gotta fight ignorance here. You can't compare times from a regular 1500 to the decathlon 1500. The winners of both 1500m decathlon heats both ran in the 4:20s, which is a great decathlon time. A 4.11.30 would dominate the other decathletes, whose training is focused more on strength and speed. The 1500 is the last event in the dacathlon, and honestly, it's the one no one is going to be losing sleep over.

No one but me (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showpost.php?p=6764420&postcount=27), that is. For Shimmer, at any rate. Not sure I know the second one.

I just recalled the other favorite I have -- the Smuckers jam parody, where they keep coming up with nastier and nastier names for jam. IIRC, the last one they can actually say on the air is "Ten Thousand Nuns and Orphans Eaten by Rats". The one after that is never said.

(Assuming that the Japanese song was the original, of course. It was entitled "Banpei-kun RX!", from an "image album" done for the manga/anime series "Aa! Megamisama!")

anyone remember the "Trough & Brew" ?

I don't remember the name of the product but it's "the hairball treatment cats ask for by name." Cats hack in time to the Purina Cat Chow music. That had me laughing for weeks. Then seeing Puss in Boots hacking up a hairball in Shrek 2 reminded me of this commercial. Then I had to explain when visiting friends why seeing their cat hack up a hairball caused me to laugh practically to incontinence.

Did anyone else notice that they used actual product or company names in the more recent commercials? The Huggies and Kotex were the most obvious.

PS-I don't wish harm to cats but seeing this commercial was just too funny! And they taste like veal...

I enjoyed it, too, since I got to see old favorites (such as Oops! I Crapped My Pants and the chicken restaurant whose mascot explains how he is cooked up and served to you- "being dead never tasted so good!") as well as some mentioned that I had never seen. Gotta love that Old Glory Insurance- for when the metal ones come...and they will.

The Gatorade Cookie Dough one is 'Cookie Dough Sport', if memory serves;

The one with the car with 'One big door' was the Paradox, I think.

I'd forgotten Roseanne's CreditCard one, and Jiffy Express - more favorites of mine.

I wish I could remember the name of the roach motel product with Will Ferrell, though.. the slogan was "Go Medieval!"

As much as I like NCI, and Happy Fun Ball, and others - Petchow brand rat poison and Bathroom Monkey are my top two.

It wasn't just the delivery, it was that it was Sam Waterston. It's a brilliant bit of casting, because Sam Waterston is exactly the kind of actor the insurance companies actually hire to sell fogey insurance in those shitty commercials.

I'm completely blanking on the name, but it was some sort of mysterious, all-in-one exercise equipment. When Will Ferrell opens the box, out pops a caveman, who he as to battle to the death. They had cutaway graphics showing what muscle groups were being worked during different scenes of the fight. It was something like the "BioExercise 3000."

Watching Ferrell and the caveman trash the place was hilarious.

One that's really obscure and might not have actually existed:

Eddie Murphey (doing a goofy, but understandable Tom Carvel voice)as the owner and sponser of 'Mayo World'. One of the treats is a "veritable mountain of Mayo!"

"Comes with Flag and three plastic goats!"

I know I saw this commercial (it was shot in studio, probably live, unlike the produced ads.) but I don't think they ever showed it again.

I'm not even sure it exists, but I have a memory of it.

One of my favorites, which seems to be a bit obscure, shows Gilda Radner as a C/W singer (whose name escapes me) plugging her new album "Stretch Marks - songs for the working single woman over 40." It features such classics by the artist as "I'm Married To My Music" "My Songs Are My Children" (insert "publicity shot" of Gilda looking forelornly as she walks past a mother w/ her infant child) and the internationally renoun "You Call Me Bitch One More Time And I'll Scratch Your Face Off!"

Then there was the promo ad for the Union of Professional Dope-growers complete with all the Not-ready-for-prime-time-players singing the "Union Label" song. Funny as it was, I'm sure the current SNL producers don't want to dredge that up, being such a more conservative time that no one thinks unions are a laughing matter anymore.

There was a Poland Springs parody, where there were two towns who fought for control of the spring, and the winning town enslaved and killed the townspeople of the losing town, and it looks like one of those History Channel reenactments. It ends when Will Ferrell says "This happened two weeks ago. You probably heard of this on the news." The tagline was something like "OUR spring. Not theirs."

Ah, yes. After the Crystal Pepsi ads were everywhere at the time. I forgot about this Crystal Gravy. Funny!

One I remember, but haven't seen posted: Hamburger Helper Antibacterial (or something similar). There came a tube of anti-bacterial ointment that you stirred into the meat for really old hamburger, or something like that. Classic.

I also remember the running for mayor (or some local office) ads with Will Ferrell (vs. Fred Pete). At the beginning of the show (the first commercial), Ferrell would argue legitimate policy issues that Fred Pete stood for in his attempt to sway voters. A 2nd commercial airs later (and more attacking of his opponent), and by the third or fourth commercial they show Ferrell chasing Fred Pete in a supermarket parking lot, calling his kids "fat" and harrassing him to no end. It was completely on-cue with the political ads at the time and how there was no line drawn when it came to attacking your opponent. Will Ferrell was just so funny!

What is going on in the Little Chocolate Donuts icommerical? Belushi wins a race in the Decathlon with a time of 4.11.30. The longest race in the decathlon is the 1500m. That time would have him getting smoked. In fact, this time doesn't work for any international racing distance except for the mile - 80-90 years ago.

Adding onto Sunshine's comments, Bruce Jenner set a decathlon record in 1976, including a 1500m run of 4:12.6 The fact that a decathlete would be edged by guys who concentrate only on the mile means nothing, since he'll be able to pole vault higher and throw shot, discuss and javelin further than they can.

At least Belushi didn't see his kids in a truly crappy reality-TV show.

Now, just to make absolutely sure, the joke refers to AIDS/STDs, right? Or is it some kind of voodoo gag?

Well, that joke (as well as numerous others in the special) is kind of dated. At the time (the sketch was on the Sept. 29, 1990 episode) sexual contact with someone from Haiti was (and to some degree still is) identified as a major HIV risk factor.

A number of the spoofs lose their punch today because they're parodies of then-overexposed straight commercials. Canis, Cologne for Dogs, works best if you have the ultra-artsy "Share the Fantasy" (http://www.tvacres.com/perfumes_chanel.htm) commercial for Chanel No. 5 (featuring a nude woman reclining beside a swimming pool and approached by a man swimming across to her) in recent memory.

A few I don't think I've seen mentioned:

* "What happens in Thailand, stays in Thailand." I laughed so hard at this series of commercials that I honestly thought I might rupture something. "No, my wallet is IN THE HOOKER. Stop judging me and just give me the damn number!"

* Not sure if this technically qualifies as a commercial parody, but the skit where they replace Chris Farley's regular coffee with "Colombian Crystals" and he then goes apeshit and becomes insane with rage is comedy gold.

* This is an old one, and I can't remember the exact details, but the idea was that they were selling a car that had luxury detailing on the interior, but the outside looked like a piece of shit, to deter thieves. The best part was when the guy in the ad placed a marble on one of the seams, like they do in the real-life luxury car commercials to show how finely assembled the car is, but on this car, the marble skews back and forth, wobbles, and then spirals down a gigantic rust hole in the hood.

One of the fake ads was for "mom jeans."

I watched it with a friend and neither of us saw anything the least bit funny about it. It came across as utterly pointless.

Anybody care to explain that particular ad?


Mom Jean's are the type of jeans's worn by moms :)

They have a high and wide wiseband, and are usually worn a little bit to tight. They typically have an odd front panel area, not aesthetically constructed. If the chick has even one once of extra fat it all gets pushed and smushed into an unactractive pubic -to-belly button-bulge.

As an announcer breathlessly describes the action, we see this '70s sedan with tinted windows maneuver through an empty parking lot doing all sorts of stunt work. At the end, the car comes down off of two wheels and does a spin, and we see Super Dave come flying out of the passenger-side window. The announcer helps him up, dusts him off, and compliments him on the amazing stunt work.

Super Dave says something to the effect of, "you idiot," and opens the driver's door...

...and out steps Ray Charles, who says, "Sorry 'bout that...I'm not used to driving stick."

Back on topic: I just remembered my second-favorite SNL commercial: Jackie Chan advertising Calgon.

One of my favorite election ads was one they did of a local election, I think from the 90s. It was some mountain town I think. The commercials ran throughout the show, and it started with typical small town problems, and one of the problems was referred to as "the bat problem" in the town, and how one of the candidates tried to stop the problem but made it worse. The commercials kept building on the previous ones. I only saw it once, and I was really young.
Any help much appreciated!

You may recall a series of Budweiser commercials, each featuring a man in an athletic contest. They would start with a little internal monologue -- "They don't even know my name, they think I'm tired, yada yada...I can beat him..." -- then the whistle blows, and muted trumpets play a repetitive fanfare and a not-really-soulful "bring out your best" is sung while the men run, leap, strive, whatever. By the final frames, the friendly rivals show their mutual respect. This was somehow associated with beer.

Not only was it hilarious to be on set shooting it, but the Martha Stewart's Topless Christmas Special (http://hiphopchick1982.livejournal.com/1235.html) remains one of my favorites.

Two weeks later I was shooting the real Martha Stewart Living show. Did I discuss my recent gig with SNL?

I did not.
