It's Brett Favre for Wrangler open-fly jeans on 'SNL'

Cringe along with Wrangler and possibly even Brett Favre himself as you watch the "Saturday Night Live" parody of his jeans commercials.

"It's the perfect marriage of comfort and style -- and that's a marriage that I can respect!" Oof.

If you think you're not seeing those commercials so much any more, you're right.

The ad was funny as s...(well, you know). No way Wrangler (which itself is a funny name, considering the controversy subject) can keep his commercials going. I know I will never be able to watch the real ones again w/o thinking of this.

This SNL commercial isn't as great as the one that starred Peyton Manning, but it's close.

How come Brett Favre isn't being lionized like Eliot Spitzer, Mark Hurd, Jack Welch, Tiger Woods and Clinton? Equal time and emoluments too for Sanford, Vitter, Ensign and the greateast of them all, John Edwards!

Um, all of them actually committed adultery. Except Hurd, anyway. Sounds like Favre is a bit lewd and inappropriate but -- so far -- it seems his jeans may have been unzipped but they didn't come off! Has he earned such "lionization"?

This was a no brainer for SNL. It practically writes itself. Still well done , including his teammates disgust. Just like the real Favre and the Vikings.
