SNL’s Parody On Nike’s Leggings Sums Up What Women Actually Do In Leggings
Saturday Night Live has delivered a hilarious skit that pokes fun at Nike’s performance-focused ads.
Instead of boasting the “moisture-wicking technology” offered in Nike’s ‘Pro-Chiller Leggings’, and how its fit is capable of increasing your performance, SNL markets the leggings in a refreshing and humorous light that is relatable to many girls.
The faux Nike commercial opens with athletes and motivational music before a female British narrator cuts in to describe the Nike ‘Pro-Chiller Leggings’, which has been designed “for endurance—but used for what most women actually do in leggings: setting up shop on their couch.”
The “soft pants” assures to keep up with women during intense workouts or alternatively, when they move from “couch [to] bed and [to] other side of couch.” Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant also star in the commercial, which persuades women that the leggings are recommended for those who plan to “just sit the hell down and chill in soft pants.”
McKinnon adds that the leggings can be worn as “pants, pajamas, and a napkin”—however you wish.
Check out the hilarious parody commercial that can be played from the Instagram album below.
