31. Mom Jeans
Air Date: 5/10/03
Starring: Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Chris Parnell
Starring several of SNL's greatest female heavy hitters, this priceless commercial was all about shining a light on the one article of lady-clothing that sends even the bravest of men running away screaming: the mom jean.
Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, and Amy Poehler all take turns strutting their stuff in exaggeratedly high-waisted denim, each cut more unflatteringly than the last. (You've got to love the revolted look on Chris Parnell's face about 24 seconds deep, as his wife emerges in the capri-length option.)
However, the faux jean line modeled after the unfortunate real deal couldn't have been summed up more perfectly than when the narrator states, “Give her that something that says, 'I'm not a woman anymore—I'm a mom!'” Ladies, let this serve as a cautionary tale.
