Since I got Tivo I rarely see commercials. First off, I don’t watch that much television to begin with but more importantly, with Tivo I can skip the commercials. Still, I do love a good commercial and one that had me cracking up was the “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” commercial where some guy is asking if they can forward his wakeup call to his cellphone because he might not be in his room.
Well, SNL ran an excellent spoof on the commercial that had me laughing harder than I did during the original. Actually, SNL ran a set of spoofs over the course of the show with all three scoring high marks on the funny-meter.
Thanks to 2Bangkok for archiving these. This was the most tame of the three:
Woman#1: Let me get this straight. You’re selling me to these guys?
Ben Affleck: What? Nobody is selling anybody, ok? I’m giving you to these guys to cover some temporary losses I’ve incurred from gambling on Russian roulette!
Woman#1: You’ve been gambling on Russian roulette?
Ben Affleck: My guy wasn’t supposed to die! I had a system!
Woman#1: You’re high again!?!
Ben Affleck: Alright, I may have socially injected some komodo dragon venom. Just because everyone else was doing it!
Woman#1: Let go of me!?!
Ben Affleck: You’re being selfish! You don’t need both of your kidneys!
Woman#1: This is not my idea of honeymoon!
Woman#1: Ben Affleck!?!

What happens in Thailand, stays in Thailand.
