Cooks: “You won’t Instagram my food, but you’ll eat it.” | CBC Radio (Comedy/Satire Skit)


To me, food doesn’t
have to be interesting; it just has
to be edible. ♪ [rapid violin] Fast… reliable… cheap. If you’re not getting
a dish out in eight minutes for under $14,
you’re not doing a good job as a cook. [knife blade] ♪ ♪ ♪ [dreamy classical] My name’s Trev Daley,
I’m the head cook here at
Classy’s Bar and Grill. ♪ ♪ I fell in love with food
working under a guy named Bruce at the Tap and Jug. He taught me
the value of chicken fingers. ♪ ♪ Good food should
always be served with a side of fries; or for an extra 50 cents,
a Caesar salad. I believe that food should come
with sauces and dips. ♪ [dreamy classical] Cheese is best served
when melted, but it doesn’t have
to be real cheese. ♪ ♪ Ingredients, ingredients,
ingredients. I believe the best
ingredients are frozen, they come in bags,
they come in boxes. How are you going
to make any money off of a bacon
double cheeseburger if you don’t keep the cost
of your ingredients down? That’s why I’ve been
buying French fries from the same store
for like five years. I buy four bags, I get the
fifth bag at 30 per cent off. ♪ ♪ What do I want people
to think of my food? Well, that it’s fast, it’s cheap, it’s a little salty, and most importantly, that it was cooked
all the way through. ♪ [dreamy classical] My name is
Cook Trev Daley, I believe that food doesn’t
have to be interesting; it just has
to be edible. ♪ ♪Imagine a world where you could
communicate seamlessly
to any other driver
on the road;
telling them to move over
so you could pass
or letting them know that
you have the right of way.

  1. SO funny. Don't recall ever watching "This is That" before, so came in thinking this was real…LOL! Caught on about half way through. Hilarious script, very well shot and performed.

  2. Frozen ingredients are usually more nutritious. Frozen veggies and fruit often end up with bad texture, but contain more nutrients than "fresh" ones that may only have been picked a day or two before eating them.

  3. This hits really close to home. Just goes to show that cheap mediocrity is king in modern North America.

  4. HAHahahaha OMG that last bit at 2:53 where he pulls out the hair just made me LOL so hard.
    i need a cheeseburger.

  5. So happy that someone finally understands me!
    How many chicken fingers have to die before you get the perfect one or the fact the you only get one good frozen burger in your life… tears thx for sharing……
    Going home now to make the most excellent chilli cheese fries from a can.

  6. The triumphant punch in the air with the frozen fries never fails to make me laugh. This is one of my all time favourite youtube clips. Great job.

  7. seriously this should come with warnings at the front, may be hazardous to sinus passages if taken with food/drink, followed with simultaneous intense cravings and disgust for the nearest fast food place nearest you.

  8. How are you gonna make any money off a bacon double cheeseburger…? If you don't keep the cost of your ingredients DOWN.
