‘Meat’ the Crawleys at Downton Arby’s
The Downton Abbey parody and mashup videos just keep coming. The latest, and an especially amusing one, not only roasts the hit British TV drama but roast beefs it as well. The parody, entitled Downton Arby’s, relocates the show to an outlet of the fast food franchise.
Richard Kind (Spin City) plays an Arby franchise-owning Lord Grantham, who is intent on finding a new son-in-law for one of his three daughters so that the eatery will remain in the family. Other familiar characters turn up, and fans of the show will recognize various recycled incidents and character traits.
The missing ingredient? There’s no Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) popping up to tell it like it is.
The parody comes from Sketchy, a new series of viral shorts from Yahoo. Click here to take a look.
