Maya Rudolph spoofing Oprah Winfrey's bread obsession is making us laugh-cry
Here’s Maya doing Oprah’s “Favorite Things” (birthday edition). Please pay attention to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in this sketch too:
Now, thanks to the new Maya Rudolph/Martin Short variety show, we have a brand new classic: Maya Rudolph playing Oprah in the Weight Watchers “I love bread” commercial. From the very first words, “I got a confession y’all, I love bread,” we are obsessed with this faux commercial.
Maya/Oprah continues with the hilarity: “Sad? I have some bread. Angry? I fill it with bread.” All we know is that we are filling our lives with this carb ridiculousness.
If you need a reminder of what exactly is being spoofed, here’s the original Oprah bread commercial and it’s almost as funny as Maya’s spoof. I mean, who doesn’t love bread?
