Sometimes SNL straddles the line of appropriateness just enough for something to become absolutely hilarious. Saturday night as Super Bowl winning Quarterback Eli Manning was hosting the show, the gang of Saturday Night Live pulled out an old trick, but something that works really well, the mock-commercial.
The commercial for ‘Amazon’ promotes getting the mom in your life a number of different things for Mother’s Day from the online retailer. But every mom who gets gifts delivered to her while she’s ‘relaxing’ is reading the popular racy book ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.
At the end of the commercial it promotes getting “mom what she wants for Mother’s Day. 50 Shades of Grey.”
The book is one of the most popular books out right now, somewhat surprising to the author, even though many people classify the book as erotica.
The commercial isn’t the only funny video to come out of the book. Ellen did a bit where she was reading for the audio book.
