Chevy Chase won’t fall for Aflac

Aflac Incorporated sells supplemental health and life insurance in the United States and Japan. In the United States, Aflac is known for its policies which “pay cash” to supplement or replace a policyholder’s income when an accident or sickness prevents the policyholder from working.

One of [Chevy Chase‘s] early, and most memorable trademark moves were his pratfalls during many of the show’s opening skits, which often poked fun at President Gerald Ford. Chase opened most SNL shows with “The Fall of the Week,” after which he would exclaim “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”. It was during one of these skits (during the second season) when he was injured on an unpadded podium, which bruised a testicle and forced him to broadcast two of the show’s segments live from his hospital bed.
