Real actors read Yelp reviews



Do you ever read Yelp restaurant reviews? They can be really over the top. So, this actor doing a dramatic reading of a bad review made me laugh out loud.

(Via Eater. Thanks, Megan!)

i love when actors do these!

From now on I am always going to write reviews imagining a dramatic soundtrack and actor reading them.

HAHAHA what a weird review. That horror-movie close-up shot at the end was the best.

I love YELP and yes we totally rely on it to pick our places. Especially so when we are traveling.

Ha! I'm a "Yelp Elite" and now I'm mentally going through all my reviews to make sure I don't end up on one of these videos!

Rachel said...

Brilliant! Kind of reminds me of William Shatner doing dramatic readings of pop songs :-)

M said...

Ha! That was great.

This is seriously HILARIOUS. I swear I have written reviews like this before. It must be during that "emotionl time of the month." It's like...you hurt my feelings because you didn't smile! I am still laughing!!!

I do check out Yelp before heading to a new restaurant, and I also write restaurant/other place reviews on Yelp.

Reading a normal script in a sad, sarcastic, ecstatic, seductive, any tone is funny. And this video was funny. Now I'm starting to wonder what my reviews sound like :D :P

Hahahahha! This made my morning.

Lol

Sara said...

Love this!! I usually post reviews & try to be normal, because I feel like most reviews are totally over the top one way or the other. When I'm reading reviews for something, I get so annoyed because they ALWAYS seem to be a fair mix of, "BEST EVER!!!" and "EFF THIS!"

There's a group of people that do "dramatic readings" of bad reviews they've received about themselves at a bar here in Chicago. I guess it makes reading the bad review more bearable when you know you can use it for comedy later on :)

being in SF yelp! is more know for their lack of ethic and their rather dirty techniques. thay have harrased even a small poster like me awhile ago. this is funny thx for sharing.

also on a similar note, JKL does it with celebrities +mean tweets: https://twitter.com/meligrosa/status/228904188837498881

Ahh! So funny! I needed a laugh today and this totally did it. Aren't some Yelpers just waaaaay over the top?!

jleestone said...

I LOVE reading yelp for how hilarious it is! My favorite is when someone admits in a review that they should not even be giving it. (ex. A hotdog cart, and they say "I don't even like hotdogs, so I'm probably the wrong person to review this, BUT... I hated it!")

That is awesome! My mom used to own a yogurt shop and got freaked by some of the idiot reviewers on Yelp, so I'll have to send this to her to confirm that no one takes those that seriously anyway. Thanks for sharing!

Claire said...

Hilarious! I am going in search of others!

These are fantastic. When it is slow at work we often go on trip adviser and read the reviews. It is hilarious when you can figure out exactly who they are talking about or can figure out which customer wrote them.
