Saturday Night Live's Spoof of New Balance Running Shoe Commercial (video)
Truth in advertising, brought to you by SNL.
“Comfort. Support. Stability.
New Balance shoes, made for running…
…but worn by chubby white guys in their late 30′s to early 40′s.
New Balance sneakers have advanced cushioning in the forefoot…
…because if you were running, you’d need that.
That same cushioning helps me just stand here.”
My friend Johnny Lee said it reminded him of this clip from Crazy, Stupid, Love...another great NB nerd reference.
