It's Scopitone Saturday! Watch Brook Benton's inexplicable 'Mother Nature, Father Time' clip

It's Scopitone Saturday! 
For this Saturday Scopitone posting, we've chosen a video that illustrates exactly why the format was absolutely brilliant in a way that will not, and can not, ever be replicated.

This clip is a mind-blowing masterpiece of incongruity.  It features the "title characters" Mother Nature (who apparently is just a whore in a bonnet) and Father Time (her pimp?), a giant globe, some hastily-constructed backdrops, and some go-go dancers seizing wildly in time to what is apparently a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SONG than the one playing.

In short, it's a delight from start to finish, and everyone involved in this production should be very, very proud.

Champagne all around.
