1. I see the late Tom Davis in the video - is Al Franken there, too?

2. Saturday Night Live was a new show in 1975

and this video was a piece of satire based on the term "Saturday Night Special" which was a phrase in common use at the time used to describe inexpensive handguns used in crime. When was the last time anyone remembers that phrase used in the media to describe a handgun?

3. The parody was based on cigarette commercial from a few years before

"Show us your Lark pack".



I remember both. I think this was the first SNL.
