It may air again or not. And if it gets voted the most popular of tonight's Super Bowl ad in the USA Today Ad Meter, then they will win $1 million. They already won $25,000. Congrats!

So what better way than with this classic Steve Martin SNL clip that just now became available on Hulu: King Tut! Now. Onto the recap… We open with a message from President Barack Obama (Fred Armisen). The premise: Things may be bad, but remember all of the fun we had on the campaign trail? There's a minor joke about the letter Bush left for him in the oval office. Armisen's Obama impersonation here is all over the place, and the jokes aren't much better, but…"Biden alert!"
