SNL Rocks: Melissa McCarthy Is a Crazed Salad Dressing Tester (Video)

Have you ever done a focus group?  You know, when you share your opinions on a new product sell your soul to the Corporate Marketing Machine for a crisp $100 bill in an envelope?

Melissa McCarthy (who made Bridesmaids so freaking funny) played a particularly enthusiastic ranch-dressing tester in the focus group from hell. Wearing a Mr. Spock sweatshirt, McCarthy is asked to try some new dressing flavors, where she gets a "strong hint of strawberry and kiwi" from the bacon flavor.

It all goes downhill from there, which amounts to a lot of awesomeness (and a strong reminder of another comedic genius -- John Belushi). Watch here:
