It's apparently an old SNL spoof commercial.

I watched the show, quite a bit, but don't remember seeing it.

That set was one of Mainway Toys best sellers, right behind the "Bag O' Broken Glass" and the "Bag O' Rusty Razor Blades"

I hate to admit it but I remember when it first aired. Dang I’m old. That was back when SNL was still funny.
