Saturday Night Live Black Friday Commercial Parody

This link is to a Hulu video of a Saturday Night Live commercial parody. I would have liked to embed the video in the blog, but there’s no way to do that with a video on Hulu and a blog.

Charmin Ultra Strong: Enjoying the Go?

Unless you’ve been hibernating, you’ve seen the animated commercials for Charmin Ultra Strong featuring bears and their dingleberries. Are these commercials annoying? Does a bear sh*t in the woods?

To make matters worse, they’ve recently added the line “Enjoy the go!” Enjoy the go? Do they think I’m saying to myself, “Gee, I can’t wait until this afternoon when I can sit down and unwind with a nice long dump”?

Enjoy the go. Picture it — it’s Friday night. You had plans to go out on a hot date, but instead, you call her up and say, “Hey hun, I know we were supposed to go out to dinner tonight but I think I’m just going to stay in and pinch a loaf.”

Don’t worry. She’ll understand. She knows how much fun doing a deuce is.

Here’s a parody I found on YouTube.

If you want to find out more about enjoying your go, you’ll enjoy going to Charmin’s website.

Just For Fun: Centraal Beheer

Here’s a rough translation of the dialog:

“Please take off your pants.”

“You look very old, but you will look young again after the acupuncture treatment.”

“Don’t be afraid of me, white guy. I’m doing it properly. Don’t move.”

(He turns up the radio.) “This is a good song.”
