Saturday Night Live knows what you're really up to when you wear leggings. In a hilarious parody commercial on this weekend's episode, Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant make fun of leggings that are advertised for athletes. "Introducing Nike Pro-Chiller Leggings, designed for endurance but used for what most women actually do in leggings: setting up shop on the couch," the narrator says.

Kate McKinnon, in a baggy T-shirt and a messy bun, calls it like it is: "Let's get real. Leggings can be pants, pyjamas, and a napkin." Other than being perfect for couch-lounging, SNL's leggings are spill-resistant and heatproof. "Because I bring the heat: leggings, blanket, laptop," Bryant says.
