And Now, a Word from Our Sponsors

Over at, they’ve assembled a list of the “50 greatest commercial parodies of all time,” most of them drawn from the post-monologue slot on Saturday Night Live. The list includes many of our favorites, including the SNL spots for Crystal Gravy (#16) and Calvin Klein “Compulsion” (#29), but where is the classic Grayson Moorhead Securities parody? Dan Akroyd shilling for the Bass-o-matic takes the #1 ranking, and we’re pleased to see that this ad for the First CityWide Change Bank came in at a respectable #7.
