    There are more commercial parodys on http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Live/exclusives/Commercial_Parodies/

    They are absolutely hilarious.
    Some of my favorites include “Litter Critters”, “Colon Blow”, “Happy Fun Ball”, “Old Glory Insurance”, and many more.

    I enjoyed this story (and all the others) as much as watching these videos.

    =D
