I Never Thought I Could Love a Video Review of Patti LaBelle's Pies so Much

If there are two things in this world I truly believe in, they're legendary R&B diva Patti LaBelle, and delicious sweet potato pies. Inexplicably, the two converged to make a well-reviewed pie line from Wal-Mart. It probably would have made more sense if she had her own line of marmalades -- but hey, what do I know about personal branding?

In an effort to bring news of the pies to the hungry masses, an over-enthusiastic LaBelle-lover -- James Wright -- took to YouTube to review the aforementioned confectionary, and it's pretty much the best thing I've ever seen in my life. There's impromptu singing, slicing, cursing, shrieking and dancing. Also, this line: "Patti what did you seal this bitch with? Gorilla Glue?"

What more can you ask of the Internet today?

This guy's resemblance to Titus Andromedon -- both physically and tonally -- is kind of remarkable. They have a very similar energy about them. 

At any rate, this dude loves Patti, and he loves Patti's pies. And we have to respect his enthusiasm.
