Comedic actress Melissa McCarthy could read your shopping list, as the old saying goes, and you’d be doubled over laughing. Her timing, her delivery, her sort-of candor — it’s right out of the elite professional’s comedy handbook. McCarthy always delivers. For example, is it funny that a woman can’t properly carry a purse? That her shoulders slope and slump in a way that makes this very regular daily activity problematic?
You might think there’s little room for humor there. But McCarthy finds it and brings it. Watch her in the video above explain to Ellen DeGeneres how, since she’s “built like a Christmas tree,” McCarthy just can’t manage the shoulder strap on a regular women’s purse.
Yet even with this evidently critical flaw, we still see an McCarthy purse endorsement deal coming. These days they really tailor endorsement deals to suit the celebrity perfectly, so what about the McCarthy clutch? She describes trying to clutch the handbag as if it were a raw steak. To a maker of a variety of high-end clutches like Fendi, doesn’t that sound like a great photo shoot?
