Doctor Reacts to Hilarious SNL Medical Sketches

30. Ruj 2020.

Saturday Night Live premieres their new season this Saturday so I decided to take a look at some of the commercial parodies they’ve done for prescription drugs. Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Dwayne The Rock Johnson… I was cracking up at these fake “direct to consumer pharmaceutical advertising” commercial parodies. Somehow the US and New Zealand are the only nations on Earth that permit this type of advertising directly people, which I think is such a strange practice. Seth Meyer’s slayed me with a sketch about a testosterone booster, Kristin Wiig cracking me up talking about having her period once a year, Chris Rock killing me complaining that he actually like Taylor Swift… SNL got these so right. Did I miss one? Let me know down in the comments if there’s another sketch you want me to look at!
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

  • Pathetic doctor! Perhaps you should spend more time taking care of your patients rather than making stupid videos! or is it because you don't have any patients that's why you need a second income?

  • Hm, interesting comment about fiber there. Reminds me of when a gastroenterologist recommended a product to me and I asked how much of it I should take. It was unclear to me and she just went "There really isn't something like eating too much of it. Unless you were to eat the whole canister..." Once again a case where me being skeptical and doing my own research was probably a good thing.

  • I rated a doctor and it got pulled few weeks later, so put it back up; same thing week later. After it happened a few times I contacted the site and they said the same person kept reporting my posts. So mostly it was that doctor or someone he paid to stop bad reviews. All these guy had to do is be a doctor to stop bad reviews lol.

  • “Diamonds are the sharpest known element” Looks like somebody needs to give “the element song” another listen. Diamond is a mineral. Also I’m disappointed he didn’t watch Xanax for gay summer weddings or cocaine am.

  • I think you should do more of these. They actually have so many more and I crack up at all of them! They have a second commercial for Chantix, something called heroin p.m., and they even have some thing about a faking an allergy pill one! They are all super funny and I think you would have a great takes on them.

  • We have a similar problem in Canada. It is illegal for Canadian networks to advertise pharma products directly to consumers but most of the TV here is US networks so people are exposed to it anyway.

And the doctor was like, “make sure to take these supplements to counteract some of that so you aren’t like super aggressive and mean.” 😂 and honestly my road rage has been worse lately and I started working out 🤷🏼‍♀️ who am I??
