The Zillow ad on 'SNL' was a fan-favorite sketch in 2021.

The Feb. 6, 2021 episode of SNL featured Dan Levy as the guest host — and it didn't disappoint.

"Are you bored? Looking for something to spice up your life?" a spoof ad for Zillow begins, showing various members of the SNL cast making sensual facial expressions and body movements.

"Ohhhh yeah. You used to want sex, but you're in your late 30s now," Bowen Yang adds.

"And sex isn't really doing it for me anymore," Dan Levy says, as other people chime in, "You need something new, something exciting."

"Real estate is your sex now, and our listings are standing by waiting for you to browse them," the Zillow spoof, which made plenty of middle-aged viewers feel personally attacked, continues. This is followed by even more sensual posing and "suggestive" one-liners:

"An updated colonial with mature landscaping? Ohhh!"

"Unleash your passions."

"I wanna flip that!"

"Satisfy your every fantasy."

Toward the end of the sketch, the Zillow ad implores, "So what are you waiting for? Pick up your phone now, open the app, and tell us what you really want."

Watch SNL on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
