SNL is mocking us... (perhaps rightly so?)
« on: December 13, 2015, 12:04:21 AM »

Just watching SNL and they ran a fake-commercial skit where they mock adult SW collectors... it's done as a typical kid's commercial advertising the new SW toys that are coming out for episode 7.

But then all of these older, geeky loser adults step in and take over the commercial, grabbing the toys out of the hands of the kids and showing them the "correct way" to play with the toys in order to more accurately depict how the Falcon should land on the landing pad, how to take good care of their toys by keeping them behind a glass case... hilarious!

Managed to grab some screenshots:

You got it backwards!
Those kids WERE playing with the toys WRONG!
AND the toys SHOULD be kept in a glass case!

If someone can find the full-screen version of the skit without the framing, please post a link. Ugh, drives me nuts that the official SNL channel (with the full screen) is unavailable to Canadian viewers!   >:(

Mhh, can't find it, but you can still see it from the official SNL channel using a VPN extension, like Tunnelbear.  :star-wars-smiley-008:

It's actually not that bad of a commercial. The toys look cool :-p

In the second screen shot from above what does the kid say to older guy when he pauses and look s at the screen for awhile.  I can't make out what he is saying?

It's mentioned above, but the kid says
"Does your wife like toys, too?"
