Why Is Glenn Beck in a Black-and-White Clip With a Fedora and a Cigarette?

"I'll be the son of a one-eyed poodle if Lucky didn't grab that pen..."

Viewers likely didn't expect to see multimedia personality Glenn Beck in a black-and-white clip, dressed in a trench coat and a fedora, when they tuned in to his 5 p.m. television show on Tuesday. But then again, he's never been known to do what's expected.

Beck began with a discussion of the new myRA proposal unveiled by President Obama during his State of the Union address last week, before saying "it is so beyond ridiculous that I think that even if it were in an old cheesy movie, you wouldn't buy the storyline."

That's when the lights shifted to black-and-white, and a "dame" in a costume ran over to light a cigarette for Beck. The television host adopted a deep, old-fashioned voice, and began weaving an elaborate story paralleling what he believes will be the eventual outcome of the myRA accounts.

"It was 5 o'clock on a dreary Tuesday. Lucky's day of hustle and bustle and action were long gone," Beck said. "All that was left was a handful of desperate vagabonds looking to hit it big, and a legless prostitute ... It was a sorry sight."

But Beck, continuing the parody, said "today was different." A man named Sam had walked in with a "deal that couldn't be refused." Sam had a machine called "Miss MyRA" that would "turn this dump around."

"I'll be the son of a one-eyed poodle if Lucky didn't grab that pen..." Beck remarked.
