Saturday Night Live May Have Plagiarized Something…Again
Yikes! It’s only been a month since the previous dust-up where SNL was accused of sketch stealing. Now it seems the new accusation is this weekend’s mock Brett Favre commercial could have been a lifted from a Funny Or Die video that hit the web last week.
The Funny Or Die video depicts a Favre impersonator hocking Wranglers “Dickhole Jeans”, much to the chagrin of the other guys on the field. This is pretty much the exact same joke as SNL’s “Open Fly Jeans” commercial that Jason Sudeikis appeared in.
The FOD video was posted last Wednesday, which in theory gives the SNL writers a window see it and make their own version. But it’s also not much time for that to happen and could have been missed by the writing staff all together. Add onto the fact that it’s a pretty obvious joke to make, especially since the alleged photos of Favre’s man bits hit the web.
Here are the clips in question. Time for you to decide for yourself.
What do you think? Plagiarism? Or just coincidence because it’s a pretty obvious joke?
