Squeezing the ketchup bottle gets less gross (but more weird) in this ‘SNL’ Heinz commercial spoof
In this Heinz TV commercial spoof from the weekend’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” a dad played by guest host Will Ferrell is falsely accused of ripping one during a festive family dinner as he squeezes a bottle of ketchup. It’s a recurring problem that has “made every Thanksgiving a living hell,” an announcer explains, which is why Heinz is introducing Heinz Relax: “the ketchup you know and love without the uncomfortable noise.” Instead of a wet-fart sound, the bottle lets out “a relaxing sigh”—though there’s, uh, some difference of opinion among family members about the possible context of that (post-coital? mid-coital?) sigh.
