Video: 'Saturday Night Live' Jeno's Pizza Rolls Commercial Sketch

Saturday Night Live finally made the video available for "I Am Your Mother," the Jeno's Pizza Rolls commercial skit that aired on the April 11 episode. It stars Zac Efron, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen, and its premise is that they're all shooting a commercial for the pizza snack. Like a lot of SNL sketches, it goes on a bit too long, but Armisen is amusing as a mom cooking up an after-school snack for her kids who just can't follow the director's coaching.

Funny enough, this isn't the first time that the idea of a Jeno's Pizza Roll commercial has been mined for humor. In the 1960s Stan Freberg made a parody of a Lark cigarette commercial that subbed Jeno's for smokes.
