I am sure it’s marvellous, fu ny and terribly woke. Slight problem as “the uploader has not made this video available in my country”. Ah, the joys of technology.

Kinda silly it doesn’t show in Canada even though we do get NBC and SNL here on TV.
December 9, 2018 at 4:35 pm
Although we have gotten used to it. Apparently American youtube uploaders hate us 🙁

Spoiler alert : it was Jason Momoa poking fun of stereotypes by riding a… I have no idea what it was. I wanna say a lawn mower but that doesn’t make sense lol I think it was a vacuum cleaner?
Ines Heinz says
December 9, 2018 at 12:22 pm
It was a ride on vacumn cleaner with a detachable spot cleaner. I loved the whole thing!
December 9, 2018 at 5:34 pm
Me, too! Next time they’ll have a woman’s version, but someone will say it has to be pink.

The ride-on cleaner or Jason Momoa?

I think I’ll settle (haha) for just Jason Momoa…
Came here to comment : https://www.reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/a4katr/til_maria_oktyabrskaya_whose_husband_was_killed/?st=JPH4Z6WK&sh=7b75768d
This woman and the one linked in the top comment reminded me of Grandma Frieda ?
Left with Momoa goodness. It’s a good day 😀
Now I am thinking Sean,or Arland or Curran in warrior form or armor doing that same sketch..it’s really amusing….
December 9, 2018 at 11:30 am
Love it! +1

December 9, 2018 at 11:47 am
ROTFL!!! loved it!!
December 9, 2018 at 2:11 pm
Heh. Rogan could just pull the dead dirt out of the rug, or float the plates/laundry to the proper appliance — but if Rivera does any cleaning, that would be hilarious.
Also +1 on the others, ESPECIALLY Curran.
Patricia Schlorke says
December 9, 2018 at 5:03 pm
I can also see Hugh doing this along with everyone mentioned above. 😀
Diane D says
December 10, 2018 at 1:46 am
LOL, I favor casting Curran. It’d be epic!
December 9, 2018 at 11:12 am
Snort! Well ladies who can’t see this. Visualize riding lawnmower in the house with vacuum suction instead of blades, 70 pound dishwasher door with round steering wheel to hold door closed, and six foot tall washer, access lid on top, and they all run on gasoline with pull start handles! A man’s dream! Oh and all in bulldozer yellow too. Just what the designer decorated home needs. Hmmm, I wonder how some expensive designer would integrate those items into their high-end decor?
December 9, 2018 at 5:05 pm
Also a jackhammer stain cleaner in that taxi cab yellow. I’m laughing so hard, I’m surprised I can type.
December 10, 2018 at 5:20 pm
I don’t know about all the above,,, but I promise you one of the first things I’ve done in every house I’ve owned is get the dishwasher up off the floor. I had it at my eye level in one house, it was wonderful. I usually have to settle for 6 or 7 inches higher than the norm. No more backaches. I’ve often thought if I knew who made the original decision to put the darn things under the counter, I’d hire a hit man
Joy W says
December 9, 2018 at 11:15 am
Funny! If Mamoa comes with the the riding vacuum, I am sold! Brilliant skit.???
December 9, 2018 at 12:02 pm
Me too! I love that man.
December 9, 2018 at 2:18 pm
+1. Enjoyed it a lot
????? I love it!! But I’ve long told my husband the sexist thing he ever does is clean the house, and do regular chores. No need to dress up or make me a fancy dinner…I am a simple girl.
December 9, 2018 at 3:31 pm
It’s actually a real thing with a name. It’s called Choreplay!
Drew Doll says
December 9, 2018 at 11:37 am
That was awesome. I would seriously buy Big Boy appliances. The ride on vacuum cleaner is an absolute win.
December 9, 2018 at 11:38 am
Jason Momoa can clean my house anytime! What a fun way to start Sunday!
December 9, 2018 at 11:44 am
December 9, 2018 at 2:05 pm
The show was mostly funny. What was going on with the front of his pants during the monologue? They didn’t fit right in the crotch area. Not meant to be dirty. The cut was weird. It was very distracting.
December 9, 2018 at 5:08 pm
I think it was the buckles on the jacket. They kept dangling in areas that kept distracting the eye.
Funny ?. I must say I am blessed as my husband does pick up after himself and does dishes.

December 9, 2018 at 11:49 am
If it means Jason Mamoa cleans my house, I will invest in new appliances.
December 9, 2018 at 6:09 pm
December 11, 2018 at 9:48 pm
+1 Yummm. Love me some Jason Momoa. No matter what he’s doing.
December 9, 2018 at 11:52 am
Only available in the USA. My minions always vanish when there is housework to be done so even as a celebrity I end up doing it myself. ???
December 9, 2018 at 12:24 pm
Well the video is also available in Switzerland … but the appliances probably are not. Shame, I quite like the stain remover and the vacuum cleaner ?
Same, but for Austria ??.
December 9, 2018 at 11:56 am
That man makes me smile, and maybe drool a bit. Thanks for the eye candy!

December 9, 2018 at 12:08 pm
Reminds me of two of my favorite calendars… “Extreme Ironing” and “Men Doing Housework Fantasy Calendar”…nothing sexier than a man cleaning up!! Thanks for sharing this!!!

December 9, 2018 at 12:10 pm
LMAO! First reaction–Is that Jason Momoa!?!!!! Then you watch the advert and it is funnee! Thanks for the Sunday laugh. I will load this into my Kindle and hopefully it ‘takes’. Then I can show it off to my cousin and friends. Have a day as nice as what you just gave us fans!
December 9, 2018 at 4:47 pm
+1 If only!
December 9, 2018 at 12:27 pm
Wait… so I missed Aquaman on SNL?? 🙂 Going to see the movie for my birthday!!
December 9, 2018 at 12:28 pm
Loved this vid! I shared with my husband and he’s shared with all his brofriends.
December 9, 2018 at 12:40 pm
I guffawed! Flat out guffawed!
December 9, 2018 at 1:10 pm
Jason can come to my apt and clean anytime. Looking forward to the movie ?. Nice Sunday treat!!
December 9, 2018 at 1:14 pm
Brilliant – he can do my housework any time!

I just fell out. LMAO!

What a hoot!!! Thanks for sharing!!!!
December 9, 2018 at 2:07 pm
Sending to my brother right now — he will be sad to see it’s only an SNL sketch, and those aren’t real.
LMAO!! Finally the secret to getting hubby to do the house work is out, just design brawny appliances! I’ve always suspected that Jason was a lot funnier than his appearance suggested. Thanks for the Sunday chuckle, I needed that ?
December 9, 2018 at 2:42 pm
Jason Mamoa seemed to have a lot of backstage fun back on Stargate Atlantis if the gag reels etc. are anything to go by!
December 9, 2018 at 3:03 pm
Clearly this must be a very american thing – i grew up with parents that both worked and both did the house work – once me and my brothers were old enough we got jobs too – makes me appreciate Aussie men more 🙂 if its this funny for american men to work around the house

Thank you, Ilona Andrews. Here I am drnking hot cocoa with 9 inches of snow watching the wintery mix addition and you had me LMAO AND ROFLOL. Titan puppy had to come make sure I was okay since I was leaking from tear ducts. Thank you for the enlightening moment.
I agree with the BDH members who visualized Sean, Arland, Curran. Or Rivera being the male “actor”. I did see Jason Momsa as aquaman in Justice League movie and he was a good choice for the “ad”.
December 9, 2018 at 3:21 pm
You know, I always pictured Lord Soren as an older Jason Momoa with grey eyes.

You nailed it. The smirk, the twinkle in the eye, and the muscle to kill people while smirking.
Hazel Fitzgibbon says
December 9, 2018 at 4:29 pm
I would like the vacuum please. Or do they do a special attachment to fit my mower?
December 9, 2018 at 5:15 pm
I should have stayed up last night to watch the rest of SNL. I started falling asleep when SNL started. I did stay up to watch the first 10 minutes (that included the monologue).
I loved it when Jason Mamoa said that being on SNL was one of the best times of his life…along with having his two girls and being married to Lisa Bonet. The way he said it made me laugh so hard. He is such a ham (which is fine with a lot of us)! Can wait to see Aquaman.
Thanks Ilona for putting this skit on the blog. 🙂
December 9, 2018 at 8:26 pm
Can’t wait to see Aquaman. This is what I get for trying to type after doing a Cowboys (NFL) play by play for my sister-in-law. ?
December 9, 2018 at 5:31 pm
As a good representation of a man I can say I wouldn’t mind if I found that vac under the Christmas tree myself.
Can anyone say Tool Time?
Cindy Montalbano says
December 9, 2018 at 6:12 pm
I need a GE BIG BOY!!! Especially if he looks like Jason Momoa. Good God that man is incredibly handsome. I’m trying not to objectify him but it’s so hard LOL
December 9, 2018 at 6:13 pm
I just shared this with my daughter, she’s a mechanical engineer who works for GE Power. And we just got a new clothes washer that I literally need a stepstool to empty, and I’m not short!! HAHAHA!! Love it!!!!
December 9, 2018 at 6:38 pm
I saw it. I laughed (and drooled a little).
Sara Quan says
December 9, 2018 at 7:36 pm
This was awesome – thank you for the laugh. That glint in Momoa’s eye was perfect. Has Meljean Brook (another fav author) seen this?!?!
Lisa in Seattle says
December 9, 2018 at 7:42 pm
My husband is downstairs doing laundry … maybe Jason Momoa can come over and give him a few pointers?!
December 14, 2018 at 7:52 am
Would you ask him to wait list me for his next visit? I don’t have a husband to worry about!!
December 9, 2018 at 10:33 pm
so good! I’m showing this to my husband!!
December 10, 2018 at 12:50 am

December 10, 2018 at 5:44 am
But my husband is only 1,68m. Do you think the washingmachine is also availleble as front loader? O, and my husband loves his dyson vacuumcleaner so I don’t think I should seperate them.
December 10, 2018 at 4:53 pm
The video was funny but is it that far out? Okay not heavy still washing machines and ride on vacuums but in the last decade household appliances are becoming more and more like high tech toys. The vacuum in mum and dads house has gone from a hoover to a Dyson to a pet hair dyson to a light weight pet hair dyson and its current model the cordless light weight per hair dyson(how do they fit all that on the box.)
I know there are programable vacuums out there how long until we are calling the house as we leave work and saying Alexa (or equivalent) run the vacuum, start the washing machine and get the kettle on. Of course as with the remote control as it’s a techy toy the man of the house will want control.

Oh lordy, that’s funny. Thanks for sharing!
December 10, 2018 at 8:13 am
Funny! Reminds me of the old sitcom Home Improvement where the character Tim “the toolman” taylor always had to supersize and superpower everything – which usually did not end up well for him 🙂
December 10, 2018 at 3:34 pm
Aaaand now I really, really want a ride on vacuum cleaner. Because, reasons! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!
December 10, 2018 at 7:46 pm
Gotta show this to the guys at work (smirk)….
December 11, 2018 at 6:36 pm
Tim Hawkins is hilarious and this fits the ongoing cleaning is a man’s work debate. 🙂 Enjoy!
December 11, 2018 at 6:41 pm
Crap ! Just ignore my previous post- I don’t know how I got that weird wrapping video when I copied Tim Hawkins ‘I’ll Clean UP for You’. I think this is the right one.
December 12, 2018 at 4:15 pm
LMAO! Love it! I have a feeling if these were real, housework would be hoarded by the men 😉 Although I’ll be the first to admit (as a woman), I’d totally want to ride the carpet cleaner.
December 12, 2018 at 11:43 pm
That came in package with Jason Momoa I would buy the lot. The factory even ???.
December 13, 2018 at 6:48 pm
Right! It’d be a Fry from Futurama moment: “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!”
