PBS Hit Gets Spoofed in 'Downton Arby's'

PBS Hit Gets Spoofed in 'Downton Arby's'
The august PBS hit series, Downton Abbey, gets skewered in Downton Arby's -- the latest installment of Yahoo!'s new sketch video series, Sketchy.

11 Best Shows of 2011

The video mirrors the grandeur and formality of the inconspicuous battles of the house and staff of a British mansion, applying this same spirit to the responsibility of making French fries.

The spoof, written and produced by Josh Weiner, stars comedic actors Matt Walsh and Richard Kind. Click the video to see the hierarchical battle behind the fryer.

Watch: Welcome To Downton Arby's

Watch: Welcome To Downton Arby's
"Downton Arby's" could easily have been a one-joke sketch, but this thing is funny, everyone. Using an Arby's franchise as a backdrop for the pomp of "Downton Abbey" is done with a uniquely clever and unwavering tone, and the terrific cast makes us truly believe that all of the Dowager Countess' problems could probably be solved with curly fries.

The fast food staff, starring a tuxedoed Matt Walsh, Richard Kind, Erin Gibson and Jennie Pierson, among others, takes on the stiffness of the British import -- with the hierarchy of running a burger joint mirroring the house-vs.-staff dynamic at play on the PBS hit. Except instead of romantic whispers with chamber maids taking place in the annals of a mansion, they take place at a deep fryer.

This is the fifth video produced for Sketchy, the recently-launched sketch video series on Yahoo! Screen's new comedy channel.
