Parodies of Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” music video may seem like so three weeks ago, but then the legendary Betty White throws her hat in the ring and we realize the best was truly yet to come.
In the new 26-second video, the comedy icon takes on the demolition site made infamous by Miley. Dressed all in white and distinctly more covered up than the 20-year-old pop princess, Betty flashes a foam finger, kisses a sledgehammer, and even gives the ole wrecking ball a ride. She sure is spry for a 91-year-old!
So why did Betty go to all this trouble? For the sake of entertainment obviously! The longtime Hollywood headliner is promoting her show, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, which recently found a new channel to call home (thanks, Lifetime!). To spread the good news, Betty decided to give a nod to one of the year’s most popular music videos and one of entertainment’s most talked about celebrities. Clearly Betty knows the biz.
Thanks to her business savvy, Betty now joins a list of Miley mockers that seems to grow longer everyday. Already accounted for: Hulk Hogan, Nic Cage (well, Nic Cage’s face), and some random naked dude on a tire swing.
