If you've ever used the customer review site Yelp, you may have noticed the dramatic tone of some of the reviews. Well, a new YouTube show called "Real Actors Read Yelp Reviews" is poking fun at them by, you guessed it, having actors read reviewers' words to the camera monologue-style. The first episode, posted by YouTube user Joe Plummer, features TV actor Chris Kipiniak ("The Good Wife," "Law & Order SVU") reading a review of the Stratford Diner in New Jersey by Dalia B. The food wasn't the issue: She was furious that the staff didn't have sufficient time to chat when she called to report her love of the broiled crab cake.
A second, arguably more hilarious, installment features actress Therese Plummer delivering a four-star review of Tamarind Restaurant in London. The "stellar" review highlights specific dishes including the buttered chicken, which she describes as "Tender moist pieces of dark meat chicken smothered in this delicious sauce with tomatoes, honey, cardamom, and what I'm assuming is a pound of laxatives."
