Last night’s “Mad Men” gave us plenty of fist fights, inappropriate kisses and the far-too-rare opportunity to hear actor Jared Harris use the term “grimy little pimp.”
What it didn’t give us is another peek into the life of the sad, overweight Betty Francis.
Fortunately, the Internet — in all its digital altruism — has come forward to deliver the gift of “Fat Betty.”
In case you haven't already seen it or inferred what it might be, “Fat Betty” is a YouTube clip that pairs images of the now larger Betty Francis with a lyrically altered version of the bluesy classic “Black Betty.”
The video is ridiculous. The audio sounds vaguely like it was recorded by Brak from “Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.” And the whole thing is potentially offensive to women, particularly Betty Francis. It’s also pretty funny. Take a look if you need a giggle while enjoying an afternoon snack of Bugles and ice cream sundaes.
