On the eve of Super Bowl XLIX, Saturday Night Live took a shot at snack commercials that traditionally feature women as the providers of food to a tribe of rowdy, football-watching men. 

In the fake spot (which nonetheless uses a real logo from a real brand) Vanessa Bayer's character serves up plates of Totino's pizza rolls to her husband while they watch the game, but then entertains herself in another room with a Totino's-branded activity pack full of juvenile puzzles and games. 

While Totinos did not address SNL's commercial associating their brand with rampant sexism, it did pretend to live tweet the Super Bowl last night. It was bizarre

Totinos has a history of eclectic commercials, themselves, although SNL's might have higher production value. Check it out below:
