......in case you don't watch SNL....it was for 'Koohl Toilet' but obviously was a parody of Apple's famous ad....


Benedict Cumberbatch Too Sexy For A Toilet, Or So Says ‘Saturday Night Live’

.....Doctor Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch on last night’s Saturday Night Live did what any weirdly gorgeous reptilian sex god should do to get laughs (his description, by the way, at least the lizard part): He targeted himself as much as the day’s headlines. In a game show sketch that had the female cast members playing themselves as contestants struggling to verbalize Cumberbatch’s appeal (and Cumberbatch himself charming the doubt right out of Beck Bennett’s resentful game show host), Doc Strange himself was at a loss.

And in a spot-on parody of Apple’s legendary “1984” commercial, Cumberbatch demonstrated his personal aplomb even when perched on that most unsexy of appliances: The toilet. The digital short replaced Apple computers as the agent of change with a Koohl backward toilet, on which the user faces front, arms draped across the tank in rebel fashion. Cumberbatch was right at home on the throne, and the spot made a fine mash-up of commercial history and red-hot stardom. Watch it above.....



Apple commercial parody........?!

I was wondering how many Millennials would actually get the reference to the 1984 spot? True, it's one of the most famous TV commercials of all time, but still — it took place ages ago.

And playing off the edginess of the Kohler ads is an even more obscure reference IMO. Then again, they've had weird ads as long as I can remember — well back into the 1980s.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.
