MACGRUBER

Video

A recurring skit on Saturday Night Live portrays MacGruber, a hero who "makes life-saving inventions out of household materials" but always fails to defuse the bomb and gets blown up in each segment. Richard dons mullet wigs in both brown and grey to portray MacGyver in a series of six MacGruber skits for the show. The first three skits, which aired on January 31, 2009, served as ads for Pepsi, and the final three segments, which aired on March 7, 2009, revealed that MacGruber is really MacGyver's son.

One of the Pepsi spots, in which Will Forte's MacGruber announces that he has changed his name to Pepsuber, aired as a 30-second commercial during the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIII on February 1, 2009.
