MacGruber, the gadget-heavy SNL sketch that always ends with an explosion, was heavy on something else last night: Product placement. And not even a cameo by Richard Dean Anderson—MacGyver himself—could save these three commercials.
The ubiquity of iPods has led to a ridiculous glut of accessories, some useful, most not. The best of them have essentially become a seamless part of the iPod experience, but they’ll all cost you — and it really starts to add up. The expansion of the iPod universe, however, is twofold; more official products are followed closely by nearly as many unofficial ones. In other words, you can fully accessorise your iPod or iPhone, old or new, pretty much for free.
These “CupSpeakers” from designer Dmitry Zagga are MacGyverific. With nothing more than a large disposable drinking cup, a couple of toothpicks, and the included iPod earbuds, Zagga has constructed a sleek, cheap, and easy speaker system for his iPod. He claims the volume increase is “significant,” and his photography makes this self-aware DIY project look like something straight out of a Steve Jobs PowerPoint.
Besides being a magnet for penis puns, this pen is absolutely bursting with functionality that will leave just about any tool junkie satisfied. At the most basic level you get a handsome stainless steel ballpoint pen, but it can also transform into “a hole puncher, a stainless steel file, a short cutting blade, a flat screwdriver, a wire sleeve remover/small nail remover, an ear pick, a long cutting blade, a tweezer, a Philips screwdriver, and a stainless steel fork and a saw.” It could very well be the best US$15 you ever spend outside of a bordello my friend.

Yes, it’s super illegal, so don’t be an idiot; use only in case of safari disasters. [Wired How-To Wiki via Lifehacker]
Let’s say MacGyver, or some other other gadget-loving, outdoorsy nut, finds themselves trapped in the deadly confines of a five-star luxury hotel like the Ritz-Carlton. Room service is unavailable; the concierge could only procure balcony seats for the opera; and the champagne is most definitely Korbel, not Cristal. Would they panic? Of course they wouldn’t, because they’re obviously armed with a US$40,000 Leatherman.
Macgruber, Saturday Night Live’s Macgyver parody, defuses bomb after bomb while dealing with some family issues. This clip is from last night’s episode with guest Shia LaBeuof. Bonus points for naming that gadget that falls out of the backpack? Looks like some sort of pink…oh God. Video:
