Together, Saturday Night Live and John Goodman took on H&M, the place to go when you've got "$60 and you need to buy six shirts and four pairs of pants." The video runs through tell-tale signs that you're actually shopping in the Swedish fast fashion giant: Impossibly low prices, small pants, floors that also function as shelves, and weird haircuts. Plus they came up with a new tagline and only way you'll ever think of the store again: "H&M, for less than a tank of gas." If nothing else gets the company to up their prices to give factory workers better wages, it will be that and memories of John Goodman trying to get a leg into skinny jeans.
