Saturday Night Live's Corn Syrup Commercial Bites the Hand That Feeds NBC

The commercial above appeared on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Billed as a message from the Corn Syrup Producers of America, it shows two self-righteous moms having an amusingly awkward disagreement over the purported evils of high-fructose corn syrup. The visual punchline features an overweight child. But the most hilarious part? The actual commercial prefacing the clip is for KFC, and features a big, shiny money shot of a huge cup of soda, surrounded by a pile of deep-fried fast food. Well, at least we know who's paying the bills.
