Doctor Reacts to Hilarious SNL Medical Sketches

857 089 Näkymät

Saturday Night Live premieres their new season this Saturday so I decided to take a look at some of the commercial parodies they’ve done for prescription drugs. Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Dwayne The Rock Johnson… I was cracking up at these fake “direct to consumer pharmaceutical advertising” commercial parodies. Somehow the US and New Zealand are the only nations on Earth that permit this type of advertising directly people, which I think is such a strange practice. Seth Meyer’s slayed me with a sketch about a testosterone booster, Kristin Wiig cracking me up talking about having her period once a year, Chris Rock killing me complaining that he actually like Taylor Swift… SNL got these so right. Did I miss one? Let me know down in the comments if there’s another sketch you want me to look at!

  • Hey Dr. Mike, I have a few questions and maybe video ideas. 1. Can testosterone make someone suicidal? Let’s say a male (60s) and he has pretty frequent pain but usually works through it. Why would it? Is there anyone you can interview that would have more info on that? 2. How can I deal with someone who is an alcoholic and drug user? (Weed and coke) how does this impact their thinking and personality? I see the changes but I want to know the science behind it. Why do people feel like they sound or think smarter after smoking weed? (At least some people say this) and how can I get this person to therapy? Not to necessarily quit their substance abuse but just to heal and stop lashing out at others who just want to help or understand. (I know this one is tricky) 3. (Last one I promise) Can you do a video pretty please with someone with sleep disorders? Like sleep apnea but primarily with narcolepsy. I would love to have more information and videos on narcolepsy and I love how you explain or can connect with others who can explain how illnesses work. I have narcolepsy and recently had to leave my job because of it. It’s left me homeless too because I can’t get two-three jobs in order to afford a place to live on my own. It’s pretty upsetting and I want to know how others deal with it and what are the signs and symptoms of it? (At times I don’t know if I’m falling asleep, having a blood sugar crash from hypoglycemia or disassociating- so it’d be really neat to know what the heck my body is doing 😭) If you read all this, thank you so much. I know it’s difficult to answer all my questions or make specific videos but I appreciate you taking the time just to read the comments. Take care 👍🏼 (also, give Bear a big hug for me!)

  • Dr. Mike, did you also realize that the amount of time a commercial talks about the medication they are also required to have the EQUAL amount of time talking about the side effects/issues and medical facts about said medication. I agree with you that the pharmaceutical industry should not be allowed to advertise to the common person. This country has some seriously wacked out ideas.

  • Excellence! I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to Dr.Michael Apa and the staff of Aesthetic Smile Design. Although I have rated him for five stars, in my heart he is worth five thousand stars! Since the completion of my smile restoration, I can truthfully say that I usually do not complete a full week without receiving compliments on my smile. Once while visiting New York City with friends, a stranger called out to me that I had a “million dollar smile”! What a wonderful feeling it is to be regarded in that way. From past dental experiences I can fully attest that a “nice” smile is not always going to be a “functional” smile. Upon becoming a patient of Dr.Michael Apa , I quickly realized that the long road of unreliable dental procedures that I have traveled has finally come to an end. Dr.Michael Apa put his high standards and expertise to work and created a beautiful, functional and most importantly reliable smile that I wear proudly and confidently today and for that I am forever grateful!”I will share his personal information 👇 Email: M.line: +420777238761

  • On the colon part .. "I'm not even... the one gonna be using it". I died inside. I was in the bus, mouth full of ice tea. I always spit everything in my mask. And then, started to choke. People around were looking at me like I was either insane or COVID positive. Dr Mike, the only doctor who tries to kill you. D: (Broken english, sorry. honhon désolé)

Could you please provide some clearity on which type of mask can be used as here in India not every one can afford buying N95 every month.

  • These are allowed in also in Bulgaria. However, all commercials end with the warning that even though doctor's prescription is not required, the user must read the note in the package before taking the drug. But if you reach to the adverse effects, you would most probably prefer to through away the drug... after you've paid for it. E.g.

  • I remember the Colon Blow commercials...from when they were originally aired - my god I'm old. I am 100% FOR DTCPA since I've had to do so much of my own research to get proper health care. I ended up finding what I joke as my "miracle pill" from an ad I saw and my doctor literally said, "I never thought about that." That was from a DO with 20ish years of experience doing endocrine and psych.
