Hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover talked about fresh breath as a Valentine's Day necessity. "You can't get no action if you're smelling like a mule," replied Wayans.
Bush then asked "very seriously now," whether Wayans could "muscle through" if he met a woman who was "Brooklyn Decker hot" but had bad breathe. "I could go through with it after I go, 'Hey, baby, you are looking so good, why don't you just - 'Pow!' - chew some of this,'" said Wayans, pulling up a package of the gum and giving the Facebook address for the ad campaign.
When Bush told Hoover she had great breath, she asked Wayans if he wanted to make out. Ever dedicated, he said sure, "I bet my breath is better than yours." Thankfully, they didn't ask him why.
Just as notable, the show became a launching pad for everyone from Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx to then-choreographer Rosie Perez and Jennifer Lopez (the latter earning her first high-profile job as one of the show's "Fly Girls").
To commemorate the anniversary, we take a look back at some of the best musical parodies the show had to offer. And good luck not getting nostalgic -- or rueful -- of the '90s if you remember these.
VH1 continues its foray into scripted fare, according to this Yahoo! piece, with Life and Times of Marcus 'Felony' Brown. The series, developed by In Living Color and The Wayans Bros.' Marlon and Shawn Wayans along with Rick Alvarez, tells the tale of an up-and-coming hardcore rapper (Darius McCrary) who moves to LA to record his second album, trailed by his manager, body guard and hype man. Think of it as Rap Entourage. It's being executive produced by the three creators along with Keenan Ivory Wayans.
While there's no official word of the Wayans appearing on the show, it seems inevitable that they eventually will. You know they can't keep their mugs out of their projects. Eventually we'll see Shawn, Marlon, Keenen Ivory, Damon, Kim, Craig, Elvira, Damien Dante, Michael, Cara Mia, Kyla, Vonnie, Nadia, Kim, Deidre, Dwayne and Damon, Jr. on the show. After that, they'll have to start thinking about the second episode.
