On the eve of Super Bowl LV, the cold-open satire of “Saturday Night Live” described how some big-game TV advertisers might try to capitalize on the politics of the moment – “to make all viewers feel welcome”. In an attempt to mislead.

“In these times, you matter more than ever,” says a narrator in the sketch’s first fake advertisement, while Black History and the Civil Rights Movement provide a glimpse of historical moments.

“We have learned once again that freedom is not independent,” the narrative continues. “But we should always strive for equality and we should reach forever … Cheez-its-Cheez-its – historically delicious.”

“What the hell ?!” Was it a commercial for Cheez-It? Artist Kennan Thompson, who plays one of five CBS Super Bowl commentators in the sketch, asks incredulously.

However, commentators promise to “balance so-called progressive advertisements”.

“We’re broadcasting with some of the more conservative slant,” a panelist reassures the audience.

In the next fake commercial, Papa John’s Pizza targets the conspirators.

“We know you want real content, no additives, no preservatives and no child trafficking in the basement,” a man says in the voice of the ad, mocking the bizarre Pizagate plot since 2016.

The narrator says, “Hillary, Democrats, you have to get your child a sex pizza in Hillary’s Pizzeria,” with the photo of Hillary Clinton showing the logo of the fake pizza restaurant. ”

The commercial announced today that Qin is a reference to the conspiracy theory, reminding Diners to stop with his “Q-pawn”.

“Is this a pizza ad?” Thompson angrily asks again after the ad ends.

Subsequently, the show airs a twisted coronavirus virus on the classic Budvisor Clydesdale ad in which one of the Clydesdale horses kills a syringe – field goal-style. A syringe blows from an old woman’s window, causing it to slip into her arm.

“This is good!” The announcer cheers. “Better second dose … cold, fresh bud light.”

But since – as the Announcers keep repeating – this year’s game is all about inclusiveness, they also feature an anti-waxaxer Budweiser ad.

Once again, this is a classic advertisement: this time Budwiser is the frog that cracks, “Don’t Trust. Pfizer.”

At the end of the sketch, commentators make their prediction for other Super Bowl commercials.

Since the planters killed Mr. Peanut last year, cast member Mickey Day suggests that Kia Hamsters will “commit a murder-suicide,” with Beck Bennett hoping that sexy woman Green M&M “will eventually turn into full porn,” “And Chris Red predicts rapper Cardi. B will advertise a “disturbing” ad titled “Wait a- Pepsi” – a spoof on his risqué hit song “WAP”.

Saturday’s show featured “Shits Creek” star Dan Levy as a guest and Phoebe Bridgers as a musical guest.
