Jason Priestly, Spandex on Ice.

Where can I see Jason Priestley's 1992 Olympic figure skating skit from Saturday Night Live?

I remember this as being one of the funniest things I've ever seen on SNL (granted, I was 15 at the time) and I would love to see it again. It's Season 17, Episode 13. Season 17 does not appear to be available on DVD. I'm a terrible YouTube searcher but it doesn't seem to be there, either, nor anywhere else on the internet. I would love to track video of this down. Help! Is it on one of the SNL compilation DVDs that have been released? Or some other source?

I favorited this to remind myself to check our many SNL DVDs (transferred from old VHS tapes made from NBC and Comedy Central back in the day) but it looks like I missed this episode. Sorry I couldn't help. Do set yourself up a Google Alert - it might eventually turn up somewhere.

Argh! I had such high hopes! but it must genuinely be not available.

NBC Universal is very good at keeping pretty much any old SNL clips off of youtube, etc. The google alert as mentioned by jocelmeow is your best bet because once they get put up, they are almost immediately taken back down. Good luck! (I have been looking for some '90s skits for *years*.)
