Well, I'm glad you did. Maybe you can hear me scream at the TV starting at 4 PM Sunday.

Also, as pointed out on Bill Simmons's page in his Cowbell section (couldn't find a permalink) - Mike Myers starred in a sketch on Saturday Night Live in a nearly identical situation once.

He was an infomercial guy with a phone bank behind him, telethon-style, while Heather Locklear was selling some blender thing. As the infomercial went on, Locklear began using more and more racial slurs, along the lines of, "This is so easy even a drunk Indian could use it!" and Myers kept trying to disassociate himself from the proceedings, even though he still had to sell the product. It was almost identical to the whole Kanye West thing. And that sketch was one of my all-time favorites.
