Bill Swerski’s Superfans was a recurring skit on Saturday Night Live featuring characters based around gluttonous Bears fans that was written by Bob Odenkirk and Robert Smigel. The parts were played by various actors over time, but the two most notable ones were Chris Farley as Todd O’Connor(which we all know was the opposite in reality) and also George Wendt as Bill Swerski. The shtick is that, much like actual fans of the Chicago Bears, they’re obnoxious and annoying. They also have very high cholesterol and enjoy saying ‘Da Bears’.
BC Sports just released a promo with Bill Swerksi and Brett Favre:
This production is another part of the National Football League’s 100th anniversary. Thursday night will open the 100th season with a match-up between the Packers and the Bears at Soldier Field in Chicago — a rivalry they rightfully see as important enough to kick off the centennial season for the league. It’s been stated many times before that this first game for new coach Matt LaFleur is going to be one hell of a challenge.
As is tradition with Brett Favre commercials, his acting and timing are atrocious but that is forgivable. There’s even a bonus double doink reference and Favre gets reminded off his exceptionally high rate of interceptions in his career.
Da Bears suck.
