Wendy's Grill Skills
A TV that eats people. Singing meats. A burger rap that rhymes "lay it down" with "not scattered all around." Air-guitar spatula solos. Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's, demolishing conventional pronunciation. Miniature Rob Gronkowski.
Although those ingredients sound like they belong to a deleted Requiem for a Dream scene, they're actually all real things you'll find in this 1989 training-video-within-a-training-video (do-do-do-do-do-do-do, BUM, BUM), starring Bill, a boy who becomes a man when his Wendy's manager shifts him from fry duty to grill duty. The whole thing is beautiful, haunting, and damn-near perfect -- a lot like that stretch of time when Metta World Peace played for the Los Angeles Lakers. If you enjoy Bill's journey, you also need to see Wendy's musical takes on hot drinks, cold drinks, and chili.
