I apologize in advance for the quality but it was the only one i could find of the whole scene.
So for this post I was actually reminded of a great example during class today when the SNL skit was played. The clip I want to show is also starring Will Ferrel from SNL but uses different aspects of commercial strategies to make this parody work. The clip makes fun of infomercials and their attempts to sell their products that are nine times out of ten, ridiculous. The biggest advertisement strategy in this scene would have to be Dramatic Realism. The mock commercial exaggerates how much work owning a dog is, in this case, that owning one is so much work that beating or starving your dog is socially acceptable and completely normal. The parody is exemplified here because it's obvious that beating and/or starving your dog or any animal for that matter isn't really morally sound. SNL also uses Psychic Byproducts as another strategy. In this case SNL is implying that if you by the video set offered in the commercial, you will learn efficient (but violent) ways to break your dog's bad habits. Examples from the clip include fussy eating habits, going to the bathroom in the house, and jumping up onto furniture. Other aspects that make this clip a parody is that one, it definitely identifies particular traits of the original type including soft, "homey" music in the background, and two, the entire clip is completely exaggerated. A specific example of this would be at 1:58 where Will Ferrel uses the F bomb towards the dog when obviously any commercial, even ones expressing frustration or anger, would not allow profanity within their production.
