Bret Favre's Wrangler, open-fly jeans on 'SNL'

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."

    "Also, I mean if they outed every single NFL player that has ever cheated on his wife I doubt you would have enough players left to fill out the roster for one team."

    Yes, but if they outed every player who left multiple voice messages, text messages, and sent unwanted pictures of his bird to a fellow team employee, you would have............Brett Favre

    always amusing when internet geeks put someone down that has more talent in their little finger than the geek does in his/her entire body and has accomplished more in his life than the geek/geekette would accomplish in 10 lifetimes.

    I dunno but to me it simply looked like Brett was courageous and played through incredible pain. Also, I mean if they outed every single NFL player that has ever cheated on his wife I doubt you would have enough players left to fill out the roster for one team. But Brett, i'd retire, why do you need this? To be criticized now by people that use to cheer for you. When obviously you are still one of the top 5 quarterbacks in the league. But retire and see how minnesota improves with Jackson at quarterback, now that would be laughable.
    I have always and will always be a Brett Favre fan, he does something 99% of the rest of the players don't do anymore, he plays for the love of the game.

    For a CNN blog, you would think that Brett's name could actually be spelled correctly...

      hahaha, the reporter writing this was in too much of a hurry to bring down brett favre, way to excited to get it written to get his name spelled correctly. lmao
      Maybe the reporter is just old and senile and needs to retire since his writing skills have become obviously a joke.

    He seemed to limp more last night when he messed up. Completed passes, he must have forgot to be hurt.

      When you are caught up in the game and things are going well its easier to ignore the pain, plus when you are happy your brain realeases neurotransmitters that tend to make you feel good/block pain. When things go bad its harder to push the pain out of your mind. It's very common for athletes to exhibit such behavior and it doesn't mean they are faking their injuries.

      I agree. Always have thought that he was just a teenage redneck hillbilly that never did grow up.
