Saturday Night Live Held Nothing Back When It Came to This Year's Super Bowl Ads

To say the cold open for Dan Levy's Feb. 6 episode [1] of Saturday Night Live [2] was chaos is putting it lightly. During a Super Bowl LV pregame show featuring their take on commentators James "No, Not That One" Brown, Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher, Nate Burleson, and Phil Simms, the group seemed to cover everything but football — including but not limited to Nickelodeon's coverage of the sport [3] and how chicken wings are made. The highlight of the skit came in the form of ridiculous versions of Super Bowl commercials [4], featuring "historically delicious" Cheez-Its, Budweiser's dual stance on vaccines, and a cheeky nod to "Pizzagate [5]" courtesy of a QAnon [6]-supporting Papa John's.

If the commercials weren't enough, Aidy Bryant was in top form as both Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians and Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid. Seeing Chris Redd get Bryant to do a quick change between coaches is well worth a watch of the skit alone. You can get in on all the hilarity in the full video above before checking out Dan Levy's charming monologue [7] from the evening.
