SNL: Totino’s Super Bowl commercial puts insensitive male football fans in their place
Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live featured a commercial mocking male football fans for being boorish and domineering on Super Bowl Sunday.
The ad is ostensibly for “Totino’s Super Bowl Activity Pack For Women,” which includes mentally stimulating fare like a top, a set of jacks, a yo-yo and other children’s toys — all of which “Grown Women Ages 5 & Up” could play with while the men in their lives watch the game.
“When it comes to the big game,” the housewife featured in the commercial says. “I love feeding my hungry guys. But — now what?”
“I normally just sit in the kitchen, waiting for them to ask for more delicious Totino’s Pizza Rolls. But that can be so boring!”
“Not anymore,” she exclaims, “thanks to Totino’s Super Bowl Activity Pack For Women. It’s full of all sorts of fun puzzles and games to keep my mind active while I wait back here.”
The pack contains “plenty of activities I can drop at a moment’s notice” when her husband demands more Totino’s Pizza Rolls or beer.
