Tonight's episode of SNL was a bore until this: a hilarious, celebrity-centric spoof of CBS' Undercover Boss that featured Steve Jobs as a trash man (you know where this is going), Richard Branson, Martha Stewart and more. Video inside.
The spoof took Undercover Boss' formula—a company's CEO goes incognito within his/her own company and works an entry-level position for the cameras—and applied it to corporate leaders who also happen to be celebrities.
Featured in the commercial:
- Steve Jobs (played by Fred Armisen), who worked as a trash man at Apple, but couldn't seem to stop pitching new product ideas (the iTrash, naturally, and the inevitable iTrash Shuffle),
- Richard Branson (played by Bill Hader), as overly enthusiastic and obnoxiously adventurous as ever,
- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (played by Nasim Pedrad and Jenny Slate), begrudgingly working the warehouse that stocks all of the random ass products they hawk to girls everywhere,
- and Martha Stewart (played by Kristen Wiig), who does NOT want to be asked to do any f*cking dishes.
If this is what every episode of Undercover Boss was really like, we wouldn't see a reason to watch anything else.
