Well, apparently there was something in the 1980s where famous women made videos instructing normal women on how to take care of their bodies, and we just need to accept it for the strange thing it is and enjoy the excerpts as they appear one-by-one on YouTube. Last month, we saw video evidence that Vanna White was the original Gwyneth Paltrow, and today, thanks to Fey Friends, I’ve found the video I’m going to start each day with: Angela Lansbury rubs the aloe lotion on her skin, and tells us how to love ourselves, take baths, and be happy. This is a must-watch.

Notice how Angela pulled that off without even a hint of smugness or superiority? Vanna and Gwyneth could learn something from her. (Also, it’s really funny to watch the video and think of it as an outtake from Murder, She Wrote.)

    Between this and “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” it’s official: Angela Lansbury can do no wrong.

  2. When she started talking about femininity and sexuality going hand in hand, I fully expected a man to come to the bath, disrobe, and hop in with her.
    I’ve watched too much porn sorry?

  3. In the opening scene where she’s writhing around on the carpet, I found myself waiting… waiting…. for her crotch area to appear (what?). Chick has a long torso!

    Angela Lansburg is awesome. There I said it. But what is the deal with the music in that clip? It’s kinda creepy.

    I never realized Angela Lansbury was such a hottie.

  6. Oh man, I am so forwarding this to my mom!

  7. Great. Now I’m sexually attracted to Angela Lansbury. Thanks a lot, Jerkgum.

  8. the 80s were a different time, when shows like “murder, she wrote” and “golden girls” could be prime time hits.

  9. i loved that episode where she solved murders via “mass-saaage.” also, did tim and eric invent a time machine i didn’t hear about?

  10. Was anyone else taken back to Silence of the Lambs? “It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose?”

    And whoa, whoa, whoa. Not so fast there at the end. What is “the right kind of attention,” Angela?

  11. I just got fired for watching this. Not because its pornographic or anything, just because its too embarrassing. Boo Lindsay, boo.

  12. I like to imagine this being done by Mrs. Potts from “Beauty and he Beast.”
