21. Happy Fun Ball
Original Airdate: February 16th, 1991
The comedy in the Jack Handey-penned commercial spoof isn't merely the contrast between the ostensibly innocent toy and the apparent risks involved in playing with it. It's that the entirety of the 90-second ad consists of Phil Hartman's increasingly ominous voiceover, where legal disclaimers begin with the relatively innocuous ("Do not use Happy Fun Ball on concrete") and gradually ramp up to outright science fiction ("Ingredients of Happy Fun Ball include and unknown glowing substance which fell to Earth, presumably from outer space"). In turn, it's become sort of a geek-culture favorite, referenced in video games like Unreal Tournament 2004, World of Warcraft ("happy fun rock") and N+.
