Let Saturday Night Live Show You The Very First Used Car Commercial

Used car ads tend to be all kinds of weird, but surely the idea had to come from somewhere, right? It turns out Saturday Night Live got their hands on a copy of the very first used car commercial, and since it stars Tina Fey and newcomer Mike O'Brien, it is, of course, absolutely hilarious.

The commercial tends to start off normally enough, explaining "Rick" and his new idea for used cars (I guess Crazy Eddie is trademarked or something?). Rick's got some crazy ideas for selling cars at crazy prices, and his wife comes on screen to explain just how crazy it all is:

We're so crazy, not only do we slash prices, but I gave all my babies to the well!


Yeah, it's pretty much all downhill into dark humor from there.
