'SNL' Mocks Sexist Super Bowl Stereotypes With Totino's Pizza Rolls Commercial Parody

Think it's pretty ridiculous that Super Bowl commercials seem to only cater to men? So does "Saturday Night Live."

On Saturday's J.K. Simmons-hosted episode, "SNL" poked fun at prevailing assumptions about the Super Bowl and gender roles with a fake Totino's Pizza Rolls ad. In the sketch, Vanessa Bayer plays a housewife whose sole purpose is to warm up pizza rolls while her husband and his friends gather around the television to watch the big game.

When there is nothing for Beyer to cook, she's conveniently supplied with a Totino's activity packet that includes an array of cheap children's toys to keep her occupied. Because she'd never be interested in actually watching the game, right? Right.
