The power of Betty White compels us. There. We said it, and can now go on shamelessly enjoying her permanent presence in entertainment.
The woman gets it. She's more in tune with pop culture than some of our contemporaries. Case in point: her recent Miley Cyrus spoof. To promote the return of her Punk'd-like show Off Their Rockers, White wanted to do something that would "really get the kids talking." What better way to succeed than to mock the headline twerker, Miley Cyrus? At this point, even hiding under a rock can't shield you from hearing a play-by-play of the teen's youthful rebellion. So, White packed every Miley mock into a short twenty seconds: a wrecking ball, a sledgehammer, and a foam finger.
Betty White, man. She's got the zeitgeist in her back pocket. Oh, and to the joy of the latter's inventor, no foam fingers were degraded in the making of this video.
