VIDEO: “Golden Is The New Black” is OITNB’s Love Child with The Golden Girls

Carmen’s Team Pick:

Sometimes I feel like people are reading my mind when I watch viral videos on the Internet. I mean, how did you know this dog rolling on the ground would make me laugh so hard, dude? But it wasn’t until I saw the cast of Orange is the New Black encapsulated in one-second clips as part of a revised introduction set to the theme song of The Golden Girls that I realized there had been a huge void in my life for too long.

Golden is the New Black is the OITNB spin-off I’m going to wait for for the rest of my life. ‘Til then, you can find me on the lanai.
