If you grew up in the ’80s, it’s likely that you spent at least part of your childhood spoofing Grey Poupon mustard’s “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” commercials.
But if you don’t remember the commercials, you definitely recall the spoof on Wayne’s World:
Now in 2014, contemporary web comedians Adam Grimes and Jessica Sattelberger recognized that the brand is ripe — flush even — with new opportunities for hilarity.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Grimes and Sattelberger described the genesis of their spoof, a “banned” commercial that dares to ask, “What do you Poupon?” At the time of writing, the ad had racked up over a half million views on YouTube.
The idea came to Grimes and Sattelberger at a wedding, and they filmed the video in a day, reports HuffPo. The pair are not officially connected with Grey Poupon, and say they “literally did it for fun.”
And fun it is.

Now compare that with the original:
Oh, and for the record, here at The Loop, we like to cut the cheese, then Poupon it.
