A Suggestion for Saturday Night Live

This video was originally shown to me by Andrea and I wanted to post it immediately on Slice of Fried Gold, but she had posted it on her blog that same day! And I couldn't be a complete copycat. . . . so I waited 4 days.

I originally thought this bad exercise video was a SNL skit starring Kristen Wiig. I, personally, think that she is one of the most the most talented comedians on Saturday Night Live right now. I've even posted a video starring her on this blog because I found her character insanely hilarious - she has a number of great characters on Saturday Night Live. I've seen her in a couple of different television shows, but I really think that Kristen Wiig would do great in a starring role in television or in movies. Her supportive role in Ghost Town was one of the highlights of that film.

Anyway, enough Wiig worship, what I'm trying to say, SNL, is that you guys should do a skit just like this real exercise video and put Kristen Wiig in the starring role. Just let her ramble on like this lady and the skit will write itself.

And for those of you who aren't writers for Saturday Night Live, you can just enjoy the hilarity that is Move Your Boogie Body and maybe, just maybe, get a work-out yourself.


UPDATE: Kendo sent me some interesting statistics (click here), showing how Kristen Wiig is not only one of the most talented cast members of SNL, but she's also the most busy.

Sorry I cramped your blogging style by posting this on my blog. It is funny though, and I think it should be on every single blog in the whole world. I also still think we need to incorporate some of these moves into our daily stretching.

Have you seen the sketch with Drew Barrymore that parodied old exercise videos? I think most of the jokes were based around sexual innuendo, but they did an excellent job copying the dialogue and lack of production values of the aerobic set that I grew up watching my mom watch.

I have seen that one and I thought it was hilarious. I was going to link to it on this post, but I have some young readers (my sister-in-law) and I didn't think she should see it.

But yes, that one is spot-on!

OK, the girls are asleep so I watched this with no volume & laughed so hard I might as well have had the volume on full blast. Tomorrow I will find out what is being said:)

Are you aware that Kristin Wiig basically did this when Deniro was on (I think it may have been cut from the west coast time zone - last skit of the news)??? If I had known it would be cut, I would never have deleted it from my dvr - funniest thing ever and I can't find it anywhere!

I was not aware of that, Igby! Now I need to see if I can find it! I have a new quest!
