One of Saturday Night Live’s best sketches of the past season was the spoof of Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein Ads with Kate McKinnon as The Biebs. SNL knows this was pure gold, so they just released the outtakes (above)… and they’re just as funny and ridiculous as the original sketch (below).
Last week, the marketing team behind The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 tweeted an image (since deleted, but the screen cap is above) touting only 100 days until the film’s release.

If you’d like to go back in time, go check out last year’s spots, too.
WATCH The banned Grey Poupon commercial
Truth be told, I doubt the was actually banned. My guess: the company realized more people would talk about the spot if they thought they weren’t supposed to see it, OR the company had second thoughts about an ad that forces people to associate their food product with fecal matter. Either way, it’s funny and has shades of those K-Mart “Shipped My Pants” commercials.
