'Saturday Night Live' Sketches Parody Michael Phelps' Pot-Smoking Debacle

— February 9, 2009 — Pop Culture
It was only a matter of time before Michael Phelps' viral pot-smoking debacle made its rounds on 'Saturday Night Live.' The incident earned two segments on the Weekend Update portion of last night's show that stuck up for Phelps and generally poked fun at USA Swimming and Kellogg's.

In the clip above, Seth Meyers kicks off his "Really!?!" segment by detailing the convenient similarities between all of Kellogg's cereal box characters and stoners, thereby proving that Michael Phelps' endorsement is actually consistent with their company image.

Below, Andy Samberg plays an effusive Mark Spitz, who suggests that two of Michael Phelps' gold medals be taken away so that he can retain his Olympic gold record.
