'Downton Arby's': Masterpiece meets fast food

What if the Granthams were manning the fryers?

‘Downton Arby’s’: Masterpiece meets fast food



If the mind can imagine it, there’s already a video devoted to it.

How about this kooky spoof, “Downton Arby’s”? All your favorite characters are there – except they’re behind the counter or manning the drive-thru window.

That’s Richard Kind, who most recently played the jockeys’ agent on HBO’s Luck, as the Earl of Roast Beef.


Here’s a little musical bonus for you. This clip captures a pianist, Sagar Jethani, juxtaposing the themes from Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones. Is that a direwolf howling? No, it’s Jethani’s dog, Duncan.
