This “SNL” Macy’s Ad Parody Is Every Parent Dressing Their Kiddo for the Holidays

You’re not the only mama with kid-centric holiday clothes woes—and Saturday Night Live’s latest commercial parody proves it!

SNL recently parodied a Macy’s Christmas clothing sale commercial, complete with what parents really think about those not-so-comfy kids’ clothes. And parents, this one’s NSFK (Not Safe for Kids) so watch it when you’ve got 2 minutes to yourself.

After opening with men’s blazers and women’s cashmere sweaters, the faux ad kicks up the comedy as the voiceover says, “And for your little ones, Macy’s has the best of fashions that will have them saying…” Here’s where the cute kiddos go full-on into pure Christmas-time tantrum. One little girl stomps up and down shouting, “It’s too hot,” a boy snarks, “It itches” and a baby—well, the half-dressed tot just cries.

The mock-mercial outlines just about everything you’re about to experience, including, “Wrestling your wiggly little monster into winter clothes” and “Merino sweaters that won’t fit over his head.” The parody goes on to advertise, “Hard, shiny shoes that hurt,” “All holiday rompers she’ll never get off in time,” “Kids jackets so big and thick, they won’t fit in their car seats anymore,” “Snow boots that are so hard to put on it will strain your marriage” and, of course, “Shirts with the wrong Frozen princess.”

If you’re in the heat of the holiday hustle, may we suggest that you take a break and watch this ho-ho-hilarious Christmas clip!
