SNL Parodies Macy's Children's Clothing Commercials and It's Spot On
You don't need to have your own kid to see how true, relatable, and hysterical this Saturday Night Live Macy's commercial is. All you need is a child anywhere in your life. Niece, nephew, younger sibling, child of some friends, or heck, just the memory of what it was like when your poor parents dressed you. For behold, this is the best Christmas commercial of the year if not ever, parody or otherwise.
Thanks to Mike Rowe for sharing this on his Book of Faces:
Is this political? No. Is it cultural? No. But based on what I'm seeing everywhere else, you don't care for politics or cultural ramifications on the final Friday before Christmas. That's because there's a time and a place for politics and cultural ramifications, and it's certainly not now. One may argue it hasn't been all this week. So why fight it?
I do not have children of my own. But I do enjoy watching all of you parents with young children struggle through the magical moments like posing your kids in "candid" photos for your special Christmas newsletters about how Skyler finally poops on her own, and Braden can count all the way to six. But if you're being honest, this SNL ad is your life, and totally explains why you have so many cute photos of your children looking like angels. Because you need to remind yourself that you did indeed bring goodness into this world, not jam-handed little terrors who won't let you sleep and asks if you're finally there yet despite asking five seconds ago.
So here's to you parents, traveling with munchkins, baking cookies for Santa, losing sleep for the tots, and loving every second of it if sometimes you want to throw yourself off a cliff.
