Betty White's 'Wrecking Ball' spoof in a TV promo for her new show has gone viral. And according to how she presented it, she says she took the idea from no other than the controversial singer at the moment, Miley Cyrus. Could her version be better than Miley's? Watch Betty White's viral video below.
The former 'Golden Girl' who is now 91-years-old, Betty White, is absolutely updated when it comes to teen pop culture. So in her TV promo for her new Lifetime show called "Off Their Rockers," she decides to jump into the bandwagon and follow what everyone has been talking about. And for her, it's Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' music video.
It can be noted that upon its official release in various social media sites, the 'Hannah Montana' star received a lot of criticisms for going a bit too far in the scale of racy. But then again, it just catapulted her into major stardom amid her break-up with former boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
Now, in Betty White's TV ad, she begins by saying that she was thinking of ways to better promote her Lifetime show "Off Their Rockers." "So I got some ideas from recent pop culture events that really got the kids talking," White continues. In a snap, we can hear the crashing on the wall and see the bricks and debris falling to the ground as Betty White emerges atop the Wrecking Ball in a white onesie. Thank goodness she isn't naked as well.
As the wrecking ball swings White to the other side of the wall, the 91-year-old comedienne can be heard cackling. And just before we can even react to the novelty of the moment, the camera zooms into a close-up view while White asks, "Can someone bring me a sledgehammer?" In a flash, viewers can see Betty White holding a sledgehammer, but instead of licking it Miley-style, she simply gives the tool a soft kiss.
