Nike, Reebok, and Lululemon aren’t fooling anyone with their sporty leggings advertisements. We ALL know what those amazingly stretchy black pants are really used for: sitting around the house. While the big brands might not understand women as well as they’d like to think, Saturday Night Live apparently does. On Saturday, April 7th, SNL aired a fake commercial for “Pro-Chiller Leggings,” and we wish we could go buy these leggings right now.
The commercial grabs our attention right from the beginning:
"Introducing the new Nike Pro-Chiller Legging," the voiceover reads. "Designed for endurance, but used for what most women actually do in leggings — settin' up shop on that couch."
Who hasn’t slapped on a pair of comfy leggings in anticipation of an all-day Netflix binge?
The one and only Kate McKinnon then takes over: “Because let’s get real. Leggings can be pants, pajamas, and a napkin.”
So many truth bombs.
"Nike Pro-Chiller Legging is advanced enough to keep up with you wherever you go," the commercial continues. "The highest peak. The top of the podium. Couch. Bed. Other side of couch. Door to receive delivery of one single bagel."
Honestly, we’ve never felt so seen. SNL writers, you really get us.
These too-good-to-be-true-because-they’re-fake Pro-Chiller Leggings have “patented moisture-locking technology, 360 degrees of support, 190 degrees of hot lap.”
This next part just might be our favorite: “Cause I bring the heat,” SNL cast member Aidy Bryant says. “Leggings, blanket, laptop, couch panini.”
Couch panini is going to be part of our everyday vocabulary now, guaranteed.
Needless to say, Twitter users want the Pro-Chiller Leggings to be real too.
Seriously, Nike. Get on this. And make sure the leggings have pockets. Y’know, for snacks. Or even a panini.

Go ahead and put on those leggings, girl. You won’t regret it.
