Ordering in French from Important Things with Demetri Martin [video]
We here at Eat Me Daily are big fans of Important Things with Demetri Martin, where each episode focuses on a single topic — this time it was "Coolness." In this sketch, a nerd hires Hoodwinkers, an agency that specializes in deception, to help him out on a dinner date.
We loved the phonetic cue cards that help him order dinner in French to impress his date: "Coat de behf pour dew-person avek luh FRICK-ah-say VEY-jay-tall, sauce BEAR-naise." We've often thought that real-life restaurants should provide this service.
