The Art of Darkness

This is Entirely Wonderful

January 23rd, 2012 by Cobwebs

Some of the more…ahem…mature amongst us may remember The Electric Company, a 70s kid’s show that was to Sesame Street as Mescaline is to Pop Rocks. The original cast included such luminaries as Bill Cosby, Rita Moreno, and Morgan Freeman, who is seen here as a vampire taking a bubble bath in a casket. As you do.

As one commenter over on the YouTube page put it, “if this were an ad, i would own at least 4 caskets right now.”

    I shrieked when they put this into his “Morgan Freeman is awesome” montage at the Golden Globes. He, however, looked mortified.

    The Electric Company and 3,2,1…Contact! They made me the freak I am today.

    Thoughts sparked by this:

    “A casket is the thing! Wherein I’ll catch the…vampire…of a king…?”

    Creaky and old? Or creepy and old?

    Although otherwise naked, he still has his vampiric sash-of-state on. Because it gets dirty? Is part of his skin? Can never be removed, lest half his upper body fall off?

    “C is for casket: that’s good enough for me! C is for casket: that’s good enough for me. C is for casket: that’s good enough for meeeeee OOOOOOOH! Casket casket casket start’ with C!!!!” ::om nom nom nom::
