  • Description

    Various shots of a large baby.

    Titles read: "The Champion. There's not a soul in the world who really doesn't fall for these - ".

    Location of events unknown (could be Sydney, Australia).

    C/U of a baby in a bath, having water sponged over its head. We then see a large baby, who the commentator refers to as "the real weight for age champion" - nine months old and weighing 68 pounds. We see him naked, standing up and holding onto a chair (as a fly crawls over his bottom!), then sitting next to a regular sized baby. C/U of the large baby as he falls asleep.

    The sarcastic commentary is pretty distasteful; the baby seems to be presented almost as a freak show exhibit.
