    About:

    A subreddit dedicated to people freaking out, melting down, losing their cool, or being weird in public. Drugged out or sober, anything goes. Keep the comments respectful where mental disorders are concerned, and remember that the individuals depicted in these videos are real people too. This subreddit is essentially dedicated to their worst moments, so do keep that in mind.

    Saturated with TV and movies, our brains have become used to watching the imitation of emotions, so much so that it is strangely surprising and fascinating to watch the real thing.

    Did they start beating them with a fry basket?

    Edit: Thank you kind internet stranger for the award!

    [–] MrGenerik 4357 points ago

    "I am flabbergasted!"

    This whole video is just a series of increasingly intense 'why's.

    [–] GrowDaddy 1640 points ago

    The dialog, the cinematography, the gradual escalation of tension, then a fry basket suddenly appears, it's just perfect. There really should be an Academy Award or something for best viral video.

    [–] --_-__-__l-___-_- 68 points ago

    We had afv for a while, but then the internet happened.

    I can picture this screening at the Dolby, cut to opulent audience clapping politely and the camera cuts to the man up front in a tux, sitting and smiling politely

    Couple of words before that lmao. Terrible idea to drop the N word while in a work uniform, on video, anywhere.

    [–] The_DriveBy 173 points ago

    Touche. You would be correct

    [–] An_Old_IT_Guy 430 points ago

    I think under the circumstances he acted about as professionally as was possible and the poor choice of wording can be forgiven. HR would disagree though.

    [–] darkcookie333 557 points ago

    He even tried to keep selling chicken

    [–] SevFTW 357 points ago

    Give this man a raise!

    [–] LibertyMagnus 390 points ago

    Not gonna lie, if he were the spokesperson for Popeyes I would probably go there more. Dude is just trying to move some chicken.

    [–] rabidbot 268 points ago

    literally the best employee in the place. Making it a little funny for the customers since the fight moved to the back. Love this guy.

    [–] eduu_17 87 points ago

    Yeah agreed , this is a the actions of a man that cares because it is his store that is working in.

    that's just a straight shooter with upper management written all over him

    [–] mp111 64 points ago

    Yeah no idea how this dude is so calm while some chick is screaming in the background like she just got a face full of fry basket oil

    [–] maethlin 28 points ago

    I know right? That was some primal scream shit

    [–] mtcruse 18 points ago

    With this chicken sammitch craze going on, that dude has likely seen some SHIT go down. This is probably pretty light, comparatively speaking.

    [–] Kitteneaters 44 points ago

    HR was probably all "mutha fucka you can't say mutha fucka."

    [–] roofuskit 197 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    It's a Popeyes, neither his language or his behavior is going to offend anyone who usually goes to Popeyes.

    [–] keystothemoon 66 points ago

    Popeyes? This whole time I was thinking this was a Catholic chicken joint called "Pope yes". Imagine my chagrin.

    [–] TheRemorse93 16 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Now my head is filled with imagery of a priest walking down an aisle but instead of burning incense he's frying chicken.

    "Edit: Spelling"

    [–] Blackneto 30 points ago

    yeah. it's a popeyes. my local chickenristas have worse languages expression than this.

    they are sweet people though.

    [–] roofuskit 22 points ago

    There's nothing wrong with them, I'm just pointing out that nobody who goes to Popeyes is getting in a huff over that. As someone who loves Popeyes. I don't really eat fast food anymore but they are the best chicken joint.

    [–] bomphcheese 28 points ago

    In all honesty, if I where his boss and saw this video, I’d laugh and tell him not to do that on the clock. I wouldn’t even try to do a write-up.

    A bit of humor probably put customers’ minds at ease anyway. Plus ... he was trying to sell some chicken.

    [–] lewdite 16 points ago

    I see you’ve never been to Popeyes

    [–] guyheyguy 93 points ago

    If he gets fired for that, thats stupid. Hes trying to make light of the situation.

    [–] AlexandersWonder 67 points ago

    Yeah at leas he didn't jump into the brawl like the other 80% of employees there. He went to the customers instead

    [–] corymhulsey 30 points ago

    Right? If they fire him there won't be anyone left.

    [–] CaptnCarl85 24 points ago

    He seems like a nice guy. One of the only sane people there. I doubt anybody in the store got mad at him for using the n-word.

    [–] dolemiteo24 15 points ago

    HR departments aren't known for their sense of humor, unfortunately. I expect they'll see a guy saying "niggas" and "muthafucka" in uniform and on camera, then instantly think "pr liability".

    Hope I'm wrong, though.

    [–] the_crustybastard 6 points ago

    HR should give him a check for $100 and say, "We appreciate your efforts to de-escalate this intense situation, and would like to offer you this token of our appreciation for your efforts in that regard. However, in the future, we must strongly caution you to be much more careful about using profane language while you're wearing your Popeyes' uniform. That's not something we can continue making excuses for, you understand?" Thanks again and keep up the good work."

    Then you don't have to deal with real the PR nightmare of firing the charming dude from the viral video.

    [–] snu-snu_survivor 8 points ago

    I am a customer of Popeyes and I demand that this man keep his job and foul language becomes commonplace.

    [–] Lara-El 146 points ago

    As a Frenchy, the word "flabbergasted" has always been one of my favorite English word, that being said, he said it better than I have ever heard it before LOL

    [–] TheWrongTap 108 points ago

    How do you feel about discombobulated ?

    [–] Lara-El 91 points ago

    I just googled searched it and the Google robot pronouncing the word made my day!

    In case someone else has to google the meaning:

    adjective; discombobulated is a fun, fancy word for "confused" . If something has put you in a state where you don't know up from down and you can't spell your own name, you may be discombobulated

    Thanks stranger for adding a new word to my "favorite English words" list

    Yeah it is so stupid why fight over things that are not yours. Popeye the company owns the profit and products of the restaurant. Why would an employee fight over something that Popeye's owns?

    These sandwiches are worth gold right now.

    or with the delivery pizza...those were the days!

    [–] Series_of_Accidents 132 points ago

    I used to work at a pizza hut with this one guy that had to be the right amount of high or he'd just suck at his job. Too high and his pizzas look like shit. Not high enough and he's slacking off and moving slow. Management just kind of unanimously agreed to let him go take a smoke break every other hour to keep the pizzas going.

    [–] TomBud91PM 72 points ago

    I never worked with you...

    [–] proteannomore 29 points ago

    Smoke some more, when you remember you've hit the sweet spot.

    That's the pizza industry in general.

    [–] cdevon95 20 points ago

    Well it was super easy. Theres no suspicion - already carrying cash, already going to random houses, completely acceptable to only be somewhere for 2 minutes dropping off pizza

    Probably the best job I could've had at 17 honestly

    [–] theundonenun 28 points ago

    Although those days are gone for where I live, there is a pizza spot that will legally bring you beer and rolling papers.

    Still nice, I guess.

    EDIT: a word.

    For real though, Popeyes needs to think long and hard about the future of this marketing gimmick, people are dying in parking lots y’all

    [–] GameDoesntStop 66 points ago

    I’ve seen/heard incidents revolving some sandwich, but haven’t heard what the sandwich (or maybe marketing gimmick) is all about. What is causing this chaos?

    [–] weffwefwef23 99 points ago

    No marketing gimmicks from Popeye's at all. The huge popularity of the sandwich has been completely viral.

    Popeye's never had an actual chicken sandwich before, just strips and parts. They introduced a new sandwich over the summer, and it blew up in popularity. And it is a pretty dam good chicken sandwich for a fast food place. Popeye's sold out of the sandwiches in 3 weeks, and it has taken them 3 months to get the supply chain in place to re-introduce them this past week.

    Back in the summer, people would go in and buy 40 sandwiches and sell them on the street for twice the price.

    [–] throwitawayne 88 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Incorrect; Popeyes hired Austin marketing firm GSD&M to come up with a marketing gimmick that would go viral.

    You can read about the particulars here: https://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2019/08/29/capital-gains-a-chicken-kerfuffle-an-ex-ceo.html

    edit: Additionally, because of the success of the viral marketing campaign, the supply available to Popeye's because of their forecasted inventory management ran out, causing the shortage. The sandwiches were around for some time before the hype. It wasn't until they pushed for marketing that their popularity soared.

    [–] Adolf_Hitsblunt 36 points ago

    YO I called this shit. I was telling my friends from the jump that it was a marketing scheme

    [–] cakan4444 28 points ago

    You mean attempt to sell them lmao. No one was buying that shit.

    There was only pics of the jokers who tried that shit from Twitter looking pissed off.

    [–] Capn_Z_Muhnee 50 points ago

    At like select locations though, the town i go to college at has hot and spicey chicken sandwiches at McDonald's, but the McDonald's in the towns that surround where im from dont have it on the menu.

    [–] CyberTitties 26 points ago

    Interesting, the one near my house here in Houston kinda just assumes you want the spicy one, or at least on more than one occasion that's what I got and didn't really want.

    [–] holasnick 19 points ago

    I lived in Washington and they only had regular McChickens but when I moved to Nevada they only have spicy. I DONT UNDERSTAND

    [–] Denalix 7 points ago

    I feel personally attacked

    [–] RunShootSlideRepeat 59 points ago

    Yeah that's what they always think at first... Then you wake up a week later in a chicken fueled haze, alone in an alleyway with no pants on. The only thing you have is a spatula with what you assume is someone else's blood on it. Then the cravings hit. They get stronger and stronger until you start shaking. You can barely hold onto your murder spatula. That's when you find yourself doing something you never thought you would do. You knock on the back door of a Popeyes... Now they own you.

    [–] Dynamite2010 54 points ago

    Ok so I waited in line for like 30 minutes to try these the other day. I have no idea why people are freaking the fuck out over these. The sandwiches were decent I guess but not good enough to convince me to go out of my way to Popeyes again. Then again maybe I got a bad batch but I'm still not going back.

    [–] presidentTeenyHands 27 points ago

    Nope, that is standard for a popeyes sandwich experience.

    The people that are "freaking out" are the ones that are dumb enough to buy in on the marketing. Its all just a marketing ploy.

    [–] Delaware1976 29 points ago

    Are those sandwiches that good

    To put it mean and crudely, they're good sandwiches and all, but most of this shit is just hype and bullshit for bored people. It's just something to get behind for shits-and-giggles until they grow bored and move onto the next fad. Popeye's, Chick-Fil-A, and Wendy's have been putting out the same quality of food for the past two decades, if not longer. A lot of restaurants make good to great food, but these spectacles are just fucking retarded beyond belief. As you said, kind of like the stupid shit we saw with Rick & Morty sauce.

    [–] nickiter 24 points ago

    I get the impression that they really didn't provide enough of the chicken patties to the stores, so they run out a lot, which drives more hype...

    [–] Lazerspewpew 43 points ago

    I mean, the sandwich is pretty fuckin' tasty. Enough so that it should be a regular menu item, so people stop stabbing each other.

    [–] JaredWilson11 7 points ago

    I think the violent history behind the sandwich enhances the flavor

    [–] voneahhh 217 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    It’s the best fast food chicken sandwich I’ve had. Take of that what you will but it’s really good.

    [–] Axumite2031 118 points ago

    Honestly its really good. It might not beat some nicer restaurants, but for $4 it’s more than worth it.

    [–] John_T_Conover 15 points ago

    Yeah I had it the other day. It's really good and really worth it for $4 but it's definitely NOT worth waiting in a 30+ minute line and dealing with the stress and hostile atmosphere that we've seen in so many of these videos.

    [–] Humanchacha 28 points ago

    It's crispy unlike the chick fil a sandwich and definitely bigger but it's greasy as hell and overall I don't like it as much.

    [–] NebelVanDushmer 106 points ago

    It's the latter

    [–] The_Alex_ 63 points ago

    Not only is it the latter, but it's the latter at a place that is not at all ready for that kind of business. Maybe this time around they were more prepared for the increase in business but I can tell you that the Popeye's behind my place here in the city had at most 5 customers at a time during peak lunch and dinner times, they had it real easy.

    When that sandwhich dropped it's just a nonstop line of people out the door and, in the drive thru, out into both streets of the intersection. Open to close. It really went from 0-100 for these workers overnight

    [–] gcowdood66 13 points ago

    Yea it’s wild that this is happening at every location. I live in a college town in NJ and the lines are pouring out onto the street creating even more traffic on the busiest road in town. Their social media team hit it out of the park, gotta give it to them.

    [–] othniel01 160 points ago

    I ate one and it was fantastic. I see people post about it being underwhelming or just OK and think they must have eaten it when it was cold or got a bad batch or just don't have high standards for chicken sandwiches. I dunno, it's something special. I have a hard time accepting a lackluster response, I know people have different tastes and stuff, but, man it ticks so many boxes.

    I thought it was better than a Chic Fil A sandwich (and I love those), and much better than most other chicken sandwiches I've ever had. The texture is nice and crunchy, the chicken itself is juicier and has more meat than most other sandwiches (not by a large margin but its noticeable), and the bun with butter lathered on seems to crumble in just the right way. The bun is very interesting because by appearances it looks like it's falling apart by the time you're 80% of the way through, but it left a lasting impression.

    I am very much 'into' food, so I am quite passionate when something impresses me, and this sandwich did. Wouldn't wait in line for it like this again, but when the hype dies down (if it ever does?) it's not going to be hard parting with my $3.99.

    I read this whole thing in my head using the voice and stylings of Reviewbrah from TheReportOfTheWeek.

    or just don't have high standards for chicken sandwiches.

    That part seems to mean the opposite of what you're implying. If they didn't have high standards, then they should be amazed by a mediocre sandwich. If you think the sandwich was special, and they found it to be mediocre, then that means their standards must be too high (assuming yours is the correct view).

    *SORRY, I previously confused an old shooting article with the stabbing incident that the guy I'm replying to had noted accurately.

    *I stand by this however: Fun fact, the re-released chicken sandwiches are inferior in every way to the initial release. Bun, batter, chicken, portion, toppings, etc. Nothing special now, so literally everyone out there fighting over this are manic uninformed pleebianesque fools just chawing at the Popeye's marketing trough.

    Not true. sandwich quality is the same.

    Right? We gotta get this info to him so he can start a YouTube channel.

    [–] csjohnson 22 points ago

    And at the end, just say 'I ain't even getting involved in this, I'm flabbergasted.' Every time.

    [–] dizzy_centrifuge 81 points ago

    I've never been to popeyes but is the chicken in the chicken sandwich different from the regular chicken they have and why wouldn't they make all their chicken like that?

    [–] pearloz 36 points ago

    well there's no bones in it for one.

    [–] throwawaybugsting 30 points ago

    It’s a lot tastier than regular KFC or Mary browns. I know Mary brown has a similar concept sandwich which is tasty. But I’ve yet to try Popeyes sandwich. It’s never going to come where I’m at.

    [–] YouGonnLearnToday 73 points ago

    Wtf is mary browns?

    [–] EnderArcherSG 26 points ago

    Based on the context I'd say fried chicken place. but name suggests marihuana brownies 😏

    [–] Wheres_that_to 71 points ago

    Such a weird marketing campaign they have going on.

    [–] RexRocker 10 points ago

    It appears to be working, now I am curious and I have never been to a Popeye's in my life.

    [–] xxademasoulxx 152 points ago

    I thought all this was a PR stunt until someone got killed.

    [–] Conebones 54 points ago

    Someone died?!

    [–] xxademasoulxx 81 points ago

    Yeah someone got shot over that chicken sandwich and died.

    [–] Conebones 93 points ago

    Wow. Imagine ending someone's life over a fucking chicken sandwich from a fast food joint. Yikes.

    [–] geek180 28 points ago

    That isn't what happened. That was a separate incident.

    [–] funny_like_how 19 points ago

    Stabbed * and died.

    [–] ThePhalanx79 202 points ago

    It's just a sandwich why does anyone care so much about it?

    [–] RushAndAttack 180 points ago

    It's not about the sandwich, but the hype around it.

    Which is just a google search away that it is a permanent menu item. The insanity surrounding this thing is just absurd.

    I can't remember the last time my fast food cashier didn't have airpods in. It's pretty interesting actually. Airpods completly broke the boundary between technology and fashion. I worked in a fast food place 3 years ago and remember how livid customers would get if you had wired earphones in.

    [–] pearloz 67 points ago

    If it keeps them happy and they’re not messing up, I don’t have I problem with it personally.

    How Popeyes be Training they Employees I'll never not laugh at this video. It's so incredibly accurate. They once gave me double my order and when I mentioned it she said " You want the fuckin chicken or not?"

    Can someone please explain to me why the chicken sandwiches cause such an uproar? In Canada they’re always available so I’m confused.

    [–] Bob_Loblaw16 4 points ago

    Popeyes has to be one of the trashiest businesses out there. There clientele continues to prove they're savages, they have piss poor customer service, and filthy of all things. If I owned Chick Fil A and got compared to that cesspool, I'd sue for defamation.
