Have you heard of Chef Keith? Keith Guerke appeared on five TV morning shows in Wisconsin and Illinois promoting his book, Leftover’s Right: Making a Winner of Last Night’s Dinner. With recipes like mashed potatoes in ice cream cones and blended drinks made from last night’s Thanksgiving feast, Chef Keith’s recipes sound ridiculous, and they are. It turns out he was actually a character played by Nick Prueher of the Found Footage Festival, who created the chef along with collaborator Joe Pickett. In the five appearances, he compares himself to GG Allin, talks about eating feces, and basically hijacks every segment while the newscasters gamely play along and taste his gross concoctions.
“There’s a Judas Priest song called “Turbo Lover,” I call this Turbo Gravy, It’s a spoof on that,” he says to one host before making a ham, green beans, corn, mashed potato and gravy smoothie. Not only does “Chef Keith” make a Priest reference, he makes an ’80s Judas Priest reference from their cheesy (but still a guilty pleasure) synth period. You can take the Simpsons and their “death metal,” this wins hands down as the best Judas Priest reference of the year on TV. The Found Footage Festival guys are also behind “K-Strass” a supposed yo-yo champion that made the rounds a few years ago. Scroll to around a minute in to catch the Priest reference, but the clip is funny enough you’ll want to watch the whole thing.
