First there was that much-buzzed-about digital short featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg, and now "Saturday Night Live" has let another below-the-belt video out of the box – a parody of a Wrangler jeans ad featuring Brett Favre.
The married Minnesota Vikings star has been in the headlines over charges that he sent racy texts and photos to reporter Jenn Sterger, and "Saturday Night Live" wastes no time making light of the allegations that he's played the field.
"I've tried all kinds of jeans – button fly, zipper fly, you name it. But for me, nothing works better than the all-new, open-fly jeans from Wrangler," says cast member Jason Sudekis, who, in tackling the role of the troubled quarterback, is shown playing touch football in a pair of denims with the crotch blurred out.
The joke jeans ad notes that the pants are the first of their kind to feature no fly whatsoever, and, as the faux Favre explains, they have "an ultra-relaxed fit, right where you need it most."
But the best part of the jeans is that they make the athlete look and feel good. "They're the perfect marriage of comfort and style," he says, "and that's a marriage I can respect."
