Valentine’s Day Gets Parodied in Black History Month Sketch on ‘SNL’ [WATCH]
With Valentine’s Day approaching, looking for the perfect gift for your lover can be challenging. The usual chocolate candy gift can be so basic. But Saturday Night Live has found an unusual V-Day gift for interracial couples.
In a hilarious (albeit macabre) SNL sketch, candy maker Russell Stover is offering the "Black History Heart Shaped Box" that mixes both Valentine’s Day with Black History Month in one sweet package. The box of candy features chocolate-covered heads of prominent African-American heroes including Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bill Clinton - in white chocolate, of course (calm down, it’s a joke).
Of course, this is not real and it was done for comedy sake so please don’t send us hate mail. Although we have to admit we was initially shocked by the video after seeing chocolate heads of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and Barack Obama. We can’t help but have a macabre feeling deep in the pit of our stomachs.
But thank God, it’s not real. Can you imagine the Twitter blacklash?
Enjoy the video above. And Happy Black History Month, valentines!
