A prankster posed as an expert chef and took advantage of a few unsuspecting Midwest morning TV shows. The result yielded live TV segments that you would expect to see in “Anchorman.”
Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher, co-creators of the Found Footage Festival, are behind the joke. Prueher posed as “Chef Keith Guerke,” the author of “Leftovers Right: Making a Winner of Last Night’s Dinner.” Both the chef and book are completely made up. The fake chef appeared on five different morning shows in Wisconsin and Illinois to promote his book and methods for repurposing leftovers. All of the segments aired during the holidays.
Some of Chef Keith’s famed dishes include mashed potatoes and gravy on an ice cream cone, a blended concoction of ham, green beans, gravy and corn, and another mix of milk, pumpkin pie and whipped cream.
