The 50 best commercial parodies of all time according to Nerve (Non US IP version)

Folks that have US IP numbers or feel like being clever proxy surfers may head straight to the Nerve.com list of "The 50 best commercial parodies of all time". Europeans, Aussies and all ye other fine adgrunts around the world hop inside where I've collected all the videos that don't say "The clip you selected isn't available from your location", "the requested video can not be displayed in your region" or "this clip is no longer available" to save some time. The numbering of this list seems pretty random anyway.

49. "Levitol," MADtv, 2006

The "ask your doctor if *blank* is right for you" genre has been sent up a thousand times, but a few stand out, this one for its initial realism and subsequent devolution into madness. The weird doctor-patient power dynamic hasn't been made any more comfortable by the raft of TV ads encouraging us to ask about particular medicines, a fact that this parody nails perfectly. And there's just something about those gardening gloves — are we wrong in thinking this wouldn't work without them? — WD

47. "Woomba," SNL, 2004

One pleasing development over the last decade has been the increasing pop-culture visibility of vaginas. (It's hard to imagine Victoria Jackson endorsing "the little pink robot that cleans your noony.") For our money, the sketch starts to lose focus once it plays up the "vagina-cleaning robot runs amuck" premise — it would be more satirically on-point to have Fey and company acting incongruously unfazed. Still, the concept is gold. — PS
