Chappelle's Show: Trading Spouses Spoof (Interracial)

Dave Chapelle's Show - Trading Spouses spoof

White and black families swap husbands in Chappelle's reality show twist, its going interracial. More drama, more conflict, more comedy.

A clear spoof on the TV shows Trading Spouses and Wife Swap.

Just a little synopsis of the show in case you didn't understand the references.

Two families, usually from vastly different social clasess and lifestyles, swap wives/mothers (and sometimes husbands) for two weeks. In fact, the programme will usually deliberately swap wives with extreme, polar opposite lifestyles, such as a dramatically messy wife swapping with a fastidiously neat one. Despite using a phrase from the swinging lifestyle, couples participating in the show do not share a bed with the "swapped" spouse while "swapping" homes.
During the first week, the new husband must adhere to exactly the same rules and lifestyle of the wife she is replacing. Each wife leaves a house manual which explains her role in the family and the duties she holds. This almost always determines what rules the wives will apply at the "rules change ceremony".

In the case of this show Chappelle swaps with the husband of a white upper class family while the upper class white families dad takes the position of Chappelle's family. Chappelle's family is of course african american, being the different social class that you would expect. In the white family there is even the stereotypical want to be black kid, listening to 50 cent, even saying gggggg-unit. So Chappelle teaches the kid a lesson and shows him the real ghetto.
