Has anyone seen this? I really  don't know what to think about it and at the end they through it in the trash which is a good place for it so are they making fun?  What are your views of this commerical or new doll?

It's a Saturday Night Live spoof commercial. I think it is hilarious. I've watched it several times, and it still makes me laugh.

I'm an SNL fan because SNL always finds a way to poke fun at things and make me laugh at things that I'm unable to laugh at in real life (like HPV vaccine mandates), and is always on top of the latest issues.  This skit is a bit sick, but that's SNL for ya! I wouldn't expect anything less.

That was kinda funny! REALLY creepy too though. When they threw the doll away and it looked back at the mom. Eeeep! It kinda speaks to me when SNL starts bringing up things that the everyday American probably doesn't bat an eye at. Makes ya think, what do they know what I don't and then I start googling. lol. Thanks for sharing. Won't be getting the shot or the doll (*I know it's not real) lol.

A youtube clip for those outside the viewing area:

I wish they had listed the scarier side effects, but still - very funny video!!

 

I know its not real - but sadly, I actually can see something like this existing in the not to distant future.

 

I also thought the mothers in particular were extra creepy.

I think they are disposing of the doll in a sharps container at the end - like you'd do with any other needle.

 

I thought it was hilarious! IMO, they made the 'commercial' because of how ridiculous the HPV vaccine is to begin with (particularly giving it to girls sooo young) - it made me proud of the folks at SNL.
