SNL is always a crap shoot. A lot of people are going to focus on the unfunny cold open mocking President Trump’s unfunny tweets towards the mayor of San Juan. But the show also had some fun with the “woke” SJW generation with Levi’s Wokes.
Finally, a pair of jeans for the socially conscious millennial (see These NYC Millennials Prefer Venezuela ‘Income Equality’ Over American Freedom and Millionaire to Millennials: ‘Less Avocado Toast, More Saving Money’)!
Do they come in “men’s” or “women’s?” Nah.
Do they come in “person?” What do you think?
That’s why Wokes got “Uni-fly.” 180 degress of gender non-conformity.
Wait a tick. Did I just witness comedy?
What’s especially chuckleworthy or sad, depending on how you look at it, is how this commercial sounds like something actual leftists would demand. Those Levi’s would be the ultimate apparel for lefties. All the bases are covered. Body positive? Check. Non-gender-conforming? You bet! But, most important of all? They’re bland and ridiculous. Just like their would-be leftist wearers.
To SNL’s credit, when they’re not kissing the left’s butt, they will mock them from time to time, They usually do a pretty good job of it (see SNL Hilariously Mocks Liberals Living in a Bubble and SNL Savages NYC Liberals Watching the 2016 Election). Honestly, they do a much better job poking fun at themselves than they do at lampooning conservatives.
This is how political comedy is done. “Trump is orange and talks funny” jokes that read like they were written by the DNC aren’t funny. Not because they’re attacking conservatives, but because they’re lazy. There’s plenty to parody on the left too. In fact, leftists are like a walking parody. As this gem of a sketch proves.
Someone tell the late night hosts.
