I thought the hoop skirt was sad, but then I saw the poor schmuck dressed up like a tree. Or a bush. Whatever. Sadder than sad.
The girl who wore the tree costume must be freaking out; that after all these years, she was sure no one would ever see it again.
Her watchful mother no doubt insisted upon the shrubbery costume, perhaps even made it herself, once she learned that the toothsome Michael Young was hosting (with three randy Gatlin Brothers roaming around backstage, too). Because, after all, you "caaaaan't make love tew a BUSH!"
It's looks like a bad skit from the old Carol Burnett show that was ... thankfully ... cut before airing.
That was one of those "so horrible it's good" moments; my day has been made! (And I'm with Mr. Peenee on "What's worse than a hoop skirt ...?" commentary.)
