No, not yet anyway. I didn't like his version of Bond, much preferred Horak's.

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

there's a couple of good ones in Season 25 of the Simpsons, currently looping round in syndication

____________________________________________________

YOLO (originally broadcast November 10, 2013)
Homer suffers a midlife crisis leading to the song You Only Live Once, as sung by Nancy Sinatra soundalike Denise Donatelli

"You only live once,
Or so it seems.
No life for yourself,
And none for your dreams,

You work every day,
At a job so lame.
And every night,
The ending's the same!

No Dream will come true,
You only live Once!"

the last image in the montage crossfades to Moe's bar, where Homer is crying into his beer, blubbering the instrumental hook of the song!

the closing credits reprise the song:

"You only live once
But that's okay
You'll live quite long
In the USA...

But back to my point
You only live once
You've got years and years
Unless it's just months."

in "Steal This Episode" (originally broadcast January 5, 2014)
Homer hosts a backyard film showing of a pirated copy of the latest James Bond Film: Yesterday Never Tomorrows
Unfortunately all we see is the film's logo, before the FBI bust the dangerous criminal conspiracy.

But earlier, Lenny and Carl have a fine and learned discussion of the Craig era
Lenny: "I like that James Bond is ugly now!"
Carl: "I like that he doesn’t have any gadgets!"
Lenny: "I like that he’s not good at shooting, doesn’t say funny quips, or do any James Bond stuff!"
I'd say Lenny and Carl have nailed it.

"what's the deal with gold fingers"

side note, I can only look at a gun mic and think of Prince in one of his VMA performances but you're right he does have a good idea what it oughta be ajb007/lol

shame that Seinfeld's standup kinda sucks.

a reasonable rate of return

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

Nearly forty(!) years before Jerry Seinfeld parodied Bond, Larry David once parodied Bond!!
You Should Only Live Twice,
starring Larry David and Bruce Mahler as the Agents of M.A.T.Z.O.I.

from the January 15, 1982 episode of Fridays (season 3 episode 13).
Fridays was a late night comedy show in the style of SNL that featured both David and Michael Richards (Kramer) as part of the main cast and writers. Richards has a cameo in this sketch during the Q's lab type scene.
If you can see the Shout Factory tv site, you can watch the complete episode in much better quality here. Sketch begins right after main credits at 1:20

Larry David and Bruce Mahler had been doing a recurring sketch about two Rabbis since the first season, preaching the mystical qualities of the Matzoi (matzo is a flatbread).
This evolved into the two Matzoi fueled Rabbis performing rather impressive martial arts moves in later sketches, and a previous film parody called Enter the Matzoi.
Here M.A.T.Z.O.I. stands for Mobile Attack Trained Zionists Operation International.


Now I gotta wonder, in these more sensitive times, is it OK for me as a Goy, to laff at all this yiddish humour? (if not, that would also rule the majority of 20th century comedy and satire out of bounds)
Nonetheless as part of my responsibilities to this forum, I must add Larry David's early Bond parody to our list.
And that reminds me I have a copy of Sol Weinstein's Loxfinger on my shelf that I've been meaning to read!
