Vanessa Bayer tries to seduce in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' parody, and fails

Posted on

If we’re to believe pop culture, elevators are where the steamiest scenes happen—but Saturday Night Live‘s Vanessa Bayer finds out that’s not exactly true in a new commercial for Audi that parodies 50 Shades of Grey.

Bayer tries to seduce fellow elevator riders with bad pick-up lines and sex toys but fails wildy: Her attempts only yield uncomfortable stares and sighs… not elevator sex.

50 Shades of Grey arrives in theaters Feb. 14.
