This is officially the most sunshiney moment of my day! Not only is Dolly Parton's video for her song "Better Get to Livin'" funny, adorable and full of fantastic outfits, but it features the hilarious Amy Sedaris as the circus lady telling the sad masses to "step right up!" This character also appears to be Dolly's friend. Who would have thought to put these two gals together?
While the unrelentingly Pollyanna-ish message of the song is slightly grating, I can't ever be truly annoyed with Dolly. She's just tryin' to spread a lil' joy! And Amy Sedaris is so cute all the time. I also like the old-timey movie and circus aspects to the video's story. It's all so entertaining and full of Dolly's particular brand of good cheer.
