Betty Glover Librarian Workout Tape Ad (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Librarians: we know you're stuck sitting in a chair most of the day. Why not get fit with this insane, super bizarre librarian workout from 1987?!

The Betty Glover Librarian Workout ad is awesome. It has: Van Halen music (and so much other great 80s music that it's impossible to list it all), an old lady (Betty Glover) with a riding crop (and this predates Fifty Shades of Grey by over 20 years!), and librarians exercising.

"It's true you no longer need to fear those bulges and slack muscles common to library desk potatoes" Betty Glover tells us while still holding formerly mentioned riding crop.

This has to be a joke, but we kind of wish it wasn't.
