@completenutt thanks for sharing that was pretty funny.

It did start off with some wrong facts though. That 50% number is inaccurate.
Also Is it just me or was that guy a soy boy?

On the vacuum part, I recognize the back part being taken from a wet/dry vac. I'm not sure which tanks they were from but I do recognize the motor being taken from a Stinger.

Speaking of GE, I've used both the NSS Pacer 300 and the Advance Nilfisk Carpetriever 28Xp 28 that uses GE motors. Boy they were sure real men's vacuums lol.

You're right, that stat was wrong. I also did some googling and it looks like GE Big Boy appliances don't exist! Good lord, what has this world come to? SNL skits contain made up info for comedy??? Boy, what a surprise that is.

look deeper

@myles_v I meant the fake statistic that "50% of women wear the breadwinners in the house" this is commonly circulated feminist propaganda.
I understand it's a comedy sketch. Of course it's not factual.

You also need to understand that it's on TV therefore there is some sort of agenda being pushed. Just looking deeper into it.

sad and true.

Hetero men got to have boundaries to imprison themselves in.

Can't use a pink lady kenmore dishwasher. no! But they would never obsess over colors. nope.

*nervously raises hand*

Hetero male here who is quite fond of pink around the house.
When we were house hunting, I saw the most impressive bathroom I've ever seen.
A 1950s cape, and it had what appeared to be a completely original, huge, pink bathroom!
The whole house was impressive, but that bathroom was the showpiece. Just pink and chrome!
Too bad it was out of our price range.

Oh. And this skit did make me laugh. Thanks for posting it. I haven't watched SNL in ages, so I never would have seen this.

The skit was even funnier when they showed a Hoover 27 as a GE on the nostalgic black and white 'look back'.

Talk about making fun of stereotypical straight men - what a riot.

Opinions vary, but I thought it was a good spoof on the old social perspective, aka funny. :-) Cute link.

I wish GE still made vacuum cleaners and ride on electric mowers. I kind of liked the logo they came up with though.

Yep, I'd have to agree. Everything on TV is biased one way or another, it's important to look past it.

YES!!!!!We all remember the GE Electrik-Trak or however it was!!Would LOVE to have one!!!The machine was ahead of its time.Today they could be brought back using Lithium batteries.Lean Green Machines is close--they make a nice electric tractor mower.
