Poor Marge. Always living in the shadows of her fattier, creamier predecessor Butter. This video tells the genesis story of the two. For a long time, Marge wasn't even allowed to be misleadingly yellow—some states went as far as making her pink just so everyone was clear on her butter poseur status. There was a really dark period when bootleg "Marj" was for sale.
Since this video was created by the Friends of Butter, a group of natural butter enthusiasts, cryptic music plays during Marge's story, while the mood gets bouncier and happier (upbeat piano music and birds chirping) when we learn about the spreadable joys of butter. The video, after the jump.
