FOX Sports’ spoof commercial for the depressed New York Jets fan: Forgetitol

FOX Sports decided to create the fake drug Forgetitol in a spoof commercial for the benefit of the depressed New York Jets fan.

There you are, late at night, and suddenly, one of America’s finest traditions hits your flat-screen. A drug commercial pops up with such stylistic silliness that you actually think it’s a spoof.

“This is Bob … ”

Not even the five-minute-long vocals that spit out the side-effects could force the average observer into serious viewing. Perhaps it’s why spoof commercials have been a part of this country’s fabric since Saturday Night Live made it in-style so long ago.

Fortunately for you, the newest spoof includes your New York Jets. FOX Sports conjured up Forgetitol, the must-have drug for every Jets fan.

The Jets fan has experienced four terrible weeks thus far on the young 2020 season, courtesy of a horrendous 0-4 start. Forgetitol—despite unwanted side-effects—is the perfect medicine to cure those Jets blues.

New York’s disheartening 37-28 defeat at the hands of third-string Brett Rypien and the then-winless Denver Broncos last Thursday night represents just another reason Forgetitol could be a drug on the rise in 2020.

New York Jets, Jets X-Factor

I know what Jets are wondering: Does my insurance cover it? The bad news is that I have no idea. The good news is that, due to Forgetitol’s side-effects, you won’t care how much the drug costs.

The 0-4 New York Jets are currently preparing to take on a tough 2-2 Arizona Cardinals team at MetLife Stadium in Week 5, and fans already have Forgetitol on their minds.

Ha. Thats not all Robby. On the season premeire of snl a couple nights ago, the jets were the butt of a joke in the Weekend Update. It was something like: “the Titans had multiple players test positive for coronavirus. Oh so i guess we should just cancel the rest of the season and act like it never happened, said the New York Jets.”
