Proving there's nothing she can't do that isn't hilarious, Betty White is once again making news for a brilliant spoof of Miley Cyrus' racy "Wrecking Ball" music video.
The clip comes as a promo for her series "Off Their Rockers," which features White and some of her older friends pranking young people. "I got some ideas from recent pop culture events that really got the kids talking," she says in an intro for the video, which is followed immediately by her crashing through a wall on a wrecking ball. Unlike Miley, however, White opted for her iconic jumpsuit instead of a birthday suit.
As you'll see below, instead of licking the sledgehammer, White simply gives it a gentle kiss — something that apparently was a bit more Miley in the first cut.
"That sledgehammer was heavy as s**t, though," she told Rolling Stone
. "My arms were so sore the next day. And they didn't tell me it was painted, so I was licking it, and they were like, 'Don't lick that!'"
