The Undisco Kidd is approached by a fat woman who claims she is an excellent dancer (presumably, a disco fan). He tells her she is too fat to dance. She then claims to be the best dancer in the world, and that her skills make her an enemy to the "Undisco scene" (presumably, funk). She then forces him to dace to disco music.
