Real Actors Read Yelp Reviews is a new project by Joe Plummer of Gotta Kid to Feed Productions. It pairs particularly absurd Yelp reviews (read: entirely typical Yelp reviews) with trained actors. The actors simply read the review on camera, and I’m going to give you the heads up it’s absolutely hilarious.
The project was inspired by a trip Joe learned this firsthand when his wife was driving down the West Side Highway of Manhattan in search of a dinner spot, and he began reading Yelp reviews to her from his smartphone. “The first thing to come up was Yelp and so I clicked the link and started reading the reviews out loud to my wife who was driving,” he explains.” I am not kidding when I say we had to pull the car over because we were laughing so hard. Something about an angry lobster set us off. For the rest of the trip I continued to find restaurants and read the reviews out loud. By the time we arrived where we were going the idea was born.”
