Watch: SNL goes to Target to hide from family this Thanksgiving

Saturday Night Live crafted a hilarious parody commercial that is (sadly) a viable reaction to the post-election Thanksgiving meal we're all about to painfully endure.

The commercial also promises plenty of other things you can do inside of Target to waste time on Thanksgiving day, like laying on the floor near the toys.

Here's a video of the skit that features Cecily Strong:

And they got some help from Target:
