We all have our routines; those series of mundane tasks we must accomplish throughout the course of any given week that need to get done, but that aren’t exactly thrilling to us. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and it takes a lot to shake you out of it.
Taking a trip to the grocery store is definitely one of these tasks. You typically buy the same foods every time, and the entire process is very predictable and ho-hum.
When writer and actor Seth Rogan planted animatronic talking groceries among the regular food items at a grocery store, shoppers were in for a huge shock… and their reactions were priceless!
Seth Rogan planted animatronic talking groceries in a real grocery store in New York City as part of a promotion for his movie Sausage Party. You would think talking food would be hard to miss but some people were just too stuck in their routines to notice; it took a lot to startle them into paying attention.
When people did finally realize that the voice that was trying to get their attention was coming from the food on the shelves or inside the produce bins they couldn’t believe what was happening! Can you blame them?
Seth Rogen and his team filled the shelves and the produce area with several different animatronic puppets. Rogen himself did the voice of the melon as he watched the shoppers from a set of hidden cameras, but interacted with them through the fruit!
For some older folks who have lived in New York longer, exchanging pleasantries with a sentient melon was just another normal day in the Big (talking?) Apple.
But many people who spotted the talking produce were tickled pink by their discovery, and spent several minutes chatting with the fruit and the other items (who advised them not to eat their fellow foods.)
This fruit might look sweet, but when it opens its mouth, look out! To hear all of the shocking things these groceries had to say, watch the video below.
This was definitely a standout day at the supermarket. These customers probably won’t ever forget the time they had a conversation with their food!
