Saturday Night Live in 1976 had a fake commercial for a product called Shimmer.  Gilda Radner and Dan Akroyd play the bickering married couple: the wife says that Shimmer is a floor wax, the husband insists it's a floor wax.  It's a floor wax!  It's a dessert topping!  Chevy Chase comes on the scene and assures them that new Shimmer is a floor wax AND a dessert topping.

"Mm, tastes terrific!"

"And just look at that shine!"
