King and Thompson play married attorneys Denzel and Latrice Commode in the 4-minute video.

King is sporting a pony tail that is sticking straight up from her head, apparently because she used Gorilla Glue to style her hair.

Social media personality Tessica Brown went viral in real life this month when she underwent surgery to remove the adhesive from her scalp because she misused it as a hair product.

"We've all been there. You ran out of hair product and had to use Gorilla Glue instead," Denzel said in the faux commercial for legal aid.

"And it turned your beautiful, luscious mane into a hard, candy shell," added Latrice. "And if this has happened to you, you are not alone and this is not your fault."

"And you are not dumb," Denzel chimed in.

"Fact: Every day as many as one people fall victim to using Gorilla Glue in place of a beauty product and they deserve compensation," Latrice said.

"We all do," Denzel said. "You should not have to go through life with hair like a Lego man because one time you used Gorilla Glue instead of Wave Grease."

The couple then promised to help their clients win financial settlements or "the next best thing:" lifetime supplies of Gorilla Glue.

The ad also included testimony from past clients.

SNL guest host King is an Oscar-winning actress, who currently is up for a Golden Globe Award for Best Director for helming One Night in Miami.

Longtime SNL cast member Thompson is set to host the Kids' Choice Awards ceremony in March.
