Greek Gods - SNL

  • Published on Oct 22, 2013
  • Zeus (Jason Sudeikis) summons the gods to Mt. Olympus to solve the financial crisis in Greece. Realizing no Greek god is in charge of economics, Zeus brings in a strict German god (Fred Armisen) to deal with the problem. [Season 37, 2011]

    The Greek gods were really only good at war, incest, and adultery.
    They're not really a financial bunch.

    Inaccurate . Greeks are hard workers. These are stupid german aligations who set us up with fake statistic economic numbers. That's a fact and it's proven. Did we had economy issues ? Yes. Just like many other countries. But we could fix the issues pretty easily. But Germans wanted to sell everything to them. Museums , even acropolis, ports, airports etc. That's why we were set up. It was a plan from the beginning.

    You made me look it up guys. But I found him. The Greek God of Wealth is Plutus, who is either the son of Demeter or the son of Hades and Persephone.
    In the gods assembled here Hermes would be the one to point fingers at, since he's the also the god of trade, roads, merchants, thieves, trickery and tons of other stuff.

      Pluto is the roman God of wealth and not Greek. He's the roman version of Hades not his son

    I would be interested who that doctor those gods go to is. I mean if a "god" cannot heal herself and needs a doctor's help then makes you wonder who's the real god.

    Zoloft is being advertised here to treat Erotic, Psychotic, and Hedonistic behavior; as well as homicidal tendencies. Why is the Goddess Psyche not sponsoring her own psychiatric product? Ambrosia must have a different marketing strategy.

    Greeks' average weekly working hours are among the very top highest in Eurozone. Not even funny.

    • pacingBlue

      0:26 "after all, the Greeks are known to be hard-working industrious people - people willing to labour week in and week out, 3 days a week, one hour a day, to the age of 45". Reproducing the (now long debunked) propaganda - used by EU Institutions & media, IMF & then-Greek-government to transfer private banking debts to the public (with devastating, comparable to wartime consequences for the Greek people) - is, I find, rather cheap, offensive, and utterly unjust. Considering Greeks working in the private sector are forced to work much longer & unpaid timetables than almost all of their European contemporaries.

    This isn't even funny. Greeks are lazy, but northern Europeans practice remote genocide in Arabic countries. White people build firearms and tanks, export them and later use their own aircraft to bomb the exported tanks. Imagine being an idiot and not realizing this

    I personally think that Poseidon and Hades could come up with some bad solutions.
    Hades being the god of the underworld was also god of precious metals and gems, as those come from the underworld.
    Get him and Hephaestus to shower the country in molten silver, gold and gem stones from huge volcanic eruptions. Have Poseidon create a series of storms that causes all cargo ships to wreck onto the shores of Greece.
    “How many people would probably die?” “Ummm, lots” “ok, let’s just stick a pin in that one and come back to it later.”

    Of course all that humanshit about greek gods is one of the most succesful tourist baits ever. By the way, when all of your ancestors learnt to eat COOKED the meat from whatever country they were and not raw anymore (cause US hasnt past), here in Greece we had already cholesterol. Sterotyped humor, thats why SNL stands for Seriously Not Laughs (and Davidson pimp joint). Enjoy.
