Well, no faces, but still a lack of integrity on NBC's part. No surprises there.

  • I saw one of our chicken dinners. Whoever ordered a baked potato, your hand was on the news.
  • Also, someone cutting their eggs @ McBob's.
  • Pie Diva's meal @ Champion Chicken. 2 shots. I love that shirt on her.

These are all chain restaurants they are talking about. I'd eat a bag of maggots before I'd eat Olive Garden.

OK - they didn't show us at all.

AND..interestingly enough....all the restaurants featured were CHAINS!

Totally what we're against! Why would they even use our footage in the first place? Madness!


Whew. I dunno, but I'm guessing the original plan was to include shots from the Roadfood outing (maybe just dishes, maybe with people in view), but apparently changes were made in response to the concerns you expressed. However things happened, I'm glad the feature didn't take our fun outing and ruin it. Or so it appears--I'll watch the segment online sometime anyway.

Hmm, so it seems that our outing made the feature, after all. Disappointing.

You say you would "eat a bag of maggots" before eating at OG, but what if those maggots have cavities induced by baklava? (See MH's comment on Baklava thread)

OTOH, baklava-fed maggots.... the next food trend!

Stop, Q! Yer grossing me out.

Q - I was never against them using shots of our food...it was that they used our images as well. I mean...I guess if you knew it was your hand or your shirt you would know it was you...but nobody else would, really.

True--It could've been much worse, though. And the footage of our outing is still in the archives, so who knows when someone will decide to drag it out and use it for something other than the original purpose. Unsettling.

It is unsettling.

Bottom line - they didn't want to pay for new footage, and they needed footage of ppl eating a buncha food, and figured they'd use ours. Not right, not even a little, but it's par for the course for media.

How do you think Champion Chicken & McBob's owners feel, knowing now that shots of their food was used in such a way?

Just saw the segment via the Journal-Sentinel online. No faces of roadfooders, but as stricken pointed out, there were some shots from the outing, including a couple of shots that got dangerously close to Pie Diva's face.

Images from the roadfood outing were not the only ones used--for example, there was a shot of a cook serving burgers. So, I wonder what other features were recycled to cobble this together?

The general tone of the feature reminded me of David Zinczenko's articles from "Men's Health" and MSN.com, and his recently published book Eat This, Not That!

Here's a link to his "The 20 Worst Foods in America," a slideshow on the "Men's Health" website:

The WTMJ feature overlaps a little with it. It's interesting (to me, at least) that the feature didn't refer to Zinczenko's work, or suggest low-cal alternatives for the restaurants covered.

Not sure if it's irony or coincidence, but right above the window for viewing the infamous video is the link to the bacon baklava story featuring our own Bobbi Pfefferle!

It's a funny, funny world ain't it?
