Meet Corey, the One Black Guy in Every Commercial

High-Five! (Every 12 Seconds)

By Published on .

"Saturday Night Live," which stirred up a lot of conversation here on AdAge.com with its recent Starbucks ad spoof, introduced a new character over the weekend: Corey, "the one black guy in every commercial," played by Kenan Thompson in a "Weekend Update" segment. In his spare time, Corey enjoys playing drums "on the top of a Pringles can," DJing at parties, giving out high-fives (every 12 seconds), and hanging out with "Hispanic girls with bangs and thrift-store outfits, and white guys who dance while wearing fedoras!"

Simon Dumenco is the "Media Guy" columnist for Advertising Age. You can follow him on Twitter @simondumenco.
