SNL’s Fake Nike Ad for Leggings Might Be the Most Honest and Hilarious Thing to Ever Be on TV


It doesn’t matter where you’re from, how old you are or how often you go to the gym, if you’re a woman, you have a pair of black leggings to your name. It’s likely that you actually have multiple colors or patterns of leggings and again, it doesn’t matter how often you work out.

In recent years, ladies have started to wear leggings everywhere and sometimes, everywhere means everywhere but the gym. It’s a known fact, but something not talked about enough– until now.

“Saturday Night Live” recently spoofed a women’s Nike commercial and it was the most honest thing to ever be on TV– it was an ad for women who wear leggings, but have never even set foot inside a yoga studio.

As female athlete said the typical things said in these hardcore ads, Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant said the following:

“I just sit the hell down and chill in these soft pants.”

“Let’s get real– leggings can be pants, pajamas and a napkin.”

“I bring the heat– leggings, blanket, laptop– couch panini.”

“Women can do anything they want and I want to do… NOTHING.”

“My FitBit says I’m dead.”

And were still laughing.
