In true “laugh to keep from crying” fashion, the discussion about whether Mary J Blige’s Crispy Chicken Wrap commercial was racist, beneath our beloved Queen of R&B, or just bad, has given way to a dang catchy cover version, the desire to randomly blurt out the ad’s lyrics, and jokes for days.

The sketch comedy troupe Second City has thrown its hat into the ring with a spoof. The “leaked and unaired” versions of Mary J. Blige’s Burger King commercials won’t help get the song out of your head (especially if you’ve made it your ringtone…not that anyone has done that…ahem). But, hey, maybe you can replace the old lyrics with some new, even more black-targeted-advertising-typical yet absurd ones:

Between the stepping and the slavery bit…sheer foolishness!

    I wasn’t going to read this article, but then someone’s comment got my attention. While I didn’t laugh at the video, I did smile to myself, mainly because of how ‘Mary’ kept magically popping up whenever someone mentioned the sandwich.

  2. This was FUNNI. No need to say I’m laughing to mask crying. People you don’t need to validate humor. Be merry!

  3. I am slain. This is perfect. “Don’t care what you heard, chicken’s all Negros eat!”

  5. That was hilarious. The crazy thing is, the level of offense that people had at the real commercial, you would think that this is what they were getting upset about.
