Ego got some exposure tonight on "Saturday Night Live." Melissa McCarthy returned as White House press secretary Sean Spicer and used the 530 cfm blower as a tool against the press corps.

I'll post a link to the sketch if it becomes available on YouTube tomorrow.

Can't watch that show anymore.  No humor left, just politics.

Given how funny politics are right now, SNL is on fire. They just hit their highest ratings in years.

Nice, thanks Ken!  

I think there was a second Ego product in that skit... maybe a SP mower under the podium? :-)

I thought this sketch was pretty funny, and was delighted to see that SNL made a great choice going with Ego equipment for their indoor blowing needs.

But I can't help but wonder if this is an officially sanctioned product placement:



Definitely seems like off-label blower usage to me!

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... then it's a sport! :-)
