This is real, despite all my instincts telling me otherwise.

The restaurant is real. It’s existence was never in question. It’s located in Staten Island, and people eat there every day.


But sometimes you stumble across (or in the case are sent) a video that you have to assume is fake. A parody. An intentionally ridiculous fabrication.

Except no. This commercial for Troy restaurant is real. Someone, somewhere in the world produced this video, watched it, and thought, “Yes, this will surely bring the restaurant more customers.”

Who knows? Maybe it worked. But I doubt it.
