It’s a musical adventure as we learn how to prepare hot drinks, cold drinks, softies, cookies, and of course, Wendy’s signature burgers and biohazardous chili!
I heap blind praise upon this video, despite not having watched it yet! Because I am a blind worshiping fanboy!
Wow…you’re like, clever….and stuff.
BEST OPENING EVER!!!!!!! Thank you so much for making this Nickolas.
I love these riff videos. You’ve got a real talent for it. Had this whole reviewing thing not worked out you might have gotten picked up as a writer for Rifftrax.
The opening was great and whoever made these training videos put a lot of effort into them.
How do you get ahold of these videos to riff on them? I’m just curious. Great vid!
That animation intro was awesome. Props to the animator.
Okay if this is what it is like to work at wendy’s, show me where to fucking sign up. But I expect a dancing black guy or im quiting.
lol don’t bother signing up, they just use a boring video tape now. I wish they had a music video in it.
WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU UNLEASHED, NOAH
There will be at least 5 separate remixes of each one of these songs by the end of the week!
Too late, Friend. Look at YouTube
This has to be one of the greatest things i’ve ever seen…that fucking hot coffee song has doomed us all…Is it sad that I need that as my new ringtone?
NOT as Sad as I want this on my MP3. GOD DAMN I love that song.
My favourite part is that time he made fun of the chili
I only feel ok watching these because I DON’T work at Wendy’s… That being said… *BLECHHH*
Rendering Grass Battle Contest videos in the background!
The first half was hilarious. Ran a bit long for me. Thanks for sharing this with the rest of us Spoony. I’m gonna go make some hot drinks.
Seriously, after seeing what those patties looked like cooking, I’m pretty grossed out. I knew that fast food burgers are poor quality, but seeing them press out that bubbling grey patty really turned by stomach. I think I’ll stick to homemade ground beef patties from now on. Perhaps it’s good that I ended up working in clothing retail instead of food service or I might have completely ruined my taste for restaurant food after seeing how the food is made.
Nice riffing, and that intro animation was awesome!
lol, I was eating Burger King when I started up this video.
Finished it anyway, though, lol.
Fucking brilliant new intro, Spoony!
I loved your Red Dwarf joke!
But i thought Wendy’s only sells ice cream….
Thank you for Hot Drinks… I work at a nursing home kitchen… primarily pouring Coffee, Decaf, Tea and Hot Cocoa… I’m going to be singing this all day D:
my head a splode
The music videos were great and the episode rocked, but…
That intro might be the coolest thing EVAR! Noah must be stoked that people do things like him nowadays.
And I really hope this guy gets a job producing animation for Spoony on a regular basis *cough*DeadliestCharacter*cough*
oh yes. The new intro is amazing.
Has Foxconn seen this yet? I’m sure it could improve stuff over there easily!
Thank you Spoony. Now I know how to make hamburgers. Hahahahahaha
when that lady said bun warmer I heard bung-whore
that damn hot drinks song is gonna be in my head for ages! lol
I went insane halfway through this. Awesome stuff Spoony!
This is the best riff yet. Kudos to you Spoony. I laughed so hard when you were making fun of the way the guy said old fashioned hamburgers that my neighbors came up to my house asking if I was okay.
Oh wow….thank you for this one Spoony. Thank you very much for this one.
Epic new opening!
I have learned one important thing from this video though: Showing up to work, strung out of powerful hallucinogens is encouraged when working at Wendy’s.
But I think we can all agree that this video needed a rapping Dave Thomas.
That would have been absolutely hilarious
WHAT JUST HAPPEND!?!!1!1!
I thought he said “pissed into the meat” in the last video XD
I’m totally grooving on that hot drinks song, wonder if anyone’s got it as an MP3.
This was great, I needed a good laugh today.
Noah, that video better be your permenant intro
Hilarious simply hilarious.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED!?!1!!1!
That was pretty good. Well no the music was crap, the editing done with blunt shears and the less said about the poor wendy’s staff that were press ganged into appearing on tape the better, but as staff training goes it was better than most.
Painfully 80′s and the music felt more like a parody of the styles but I can accept that. What I can’t accept is the butchering of tea!
It’s almost enough to make me write the whole process down, but those nice people with the straight-jacket and neddles have come for me…
Great intro though.
Wow Noah. Your comments throughout this video makes not even want to look at fast food places. The mental images of people losing hair and sneezing on the meat just makes my stomach shrivel up. I did love the hot drinks song though. Even though I’ll probably forget it in an hour or so knowing my memory.
Also, “Large, medium, small and kid’s meal-that’s what women bra sizes should be.”
Haha, that’s such a terrible joke but I can’t stop laughing at it.
Good afternoon Spoony and fellow Spooners.
That intro was excellent. I’d ask, though, that you upload it separately to YouTube so it can be more thoroughly enjoyed. Blip, while overall a decent service, kind of sucks when it comes to scrolling videos back and forward.
Or, if posted separately, you could… download it from Blip! A much better option than asking Spoony to piss around with shitty Youtube again.
I agree. The worst thing about youtube besides the quality is the lack options for time. I prefer blipTV because I can upload a 20 min video to having to chop videos into 15 minute chunks.
This meat really does look nasty.
PHANTASMAGORIA! thats what i was thinking on the last music video
wow, that hot drinks song was actually pretty good. the rest were piles of shit and the vid was a bit lame, but if that song had a different subject matter i would buy it. i could see JLS or that kind of band releasing a song like that.
Wow, people who worked at Wendy’s in the 90s got to watch music videos for their training? What did the people at Burger King or McDonalds do for training? Play full-motion sega-cd games about flipping burgers?
AMAZING intro! You should keep it for your videos!
That intro was excellent. I agree with Tim, you should totally keep that one from now on :D
SPOONY, PLEASE POST FOR ME THE LYRICS TO HOT DRINKS. I WANNA LEARN THAT SONG. I’M DEAD SERIOUS.
Coffee, decaf, or tea, and hot chocolate
Those are the hot drinks that you serve, so get it
Hot cups come in two sizes
Small and large are for as the need arises
Coffee’s holding time is thirty minutes, that’s how long
It can stay there before it starts to taste too strong
Hot, hot, careful when you pour it
Hold it steady, upon the counter let it set
Pour it in until the coffee reaches the line
Pop a top on it, gets a lid everytime
Wendy’s coffee tastes so fine
Hot drinks really get you going
Hold you up when you feel you’re slowing
Wendy’s, we always serve it right away
Have a smile, and have a nice day
Next is decaf, you brew it just like coffee
Use the orange pot it makes it easier to see
But if you’re using the packets in your store
Put it in the small cup and further more
Add hot water up to the line and stir it in
Put a lid on and serve it on a tray again
Get a small cup when you’re ready for hot tea
Fill with hot water it’s easy as can be
Put the lid on and set the teabag on the top
If they want lemon it’s very nice
Don’t think twice, give the guest a juicy slice
Grab a small cup when you’re making hot cocoa
Pour the packet in, then you add your H2O
Use a clean spoon and stir it ’til it’s all mixed up
Toss the spoon out and put the lid on the cup
Things are really looking up
the comment about Chef made me laugh my ass off now I cant watch that one without thinking of it
That was amazing. This made my day Spoony!
Awesome opening. I’m betting that will be in place for at least a good while… Spoony probably dropped some hefty coin on it, and it shows. Very cool.
Wow, the intro is amazing!
Having the founder of any given company appear in videos such as this is usually a recipe for weirdness.
“Tha frayshest beef, tha best old-fayshioned burgers in the binniss”… (you hardly hear the s in business….)
Anyway, this was a great find, Spoony. Thumbs up!
Emperor, when I started at Subway I didn’t get so much as a powerpoint presentation.
Oh yeah, that new intro is incredible.
Puny meat shields don’t require powerpoint presentations. Only a lasgun and faith in the Emperors’ divine will.
agreed, my Faith in the God-Emperor is renewed!
Powerpoint presentations are the tools of Tzeentch!
Oh my God Noah, I’m so glad you posted this today. I have a really big test tonight, and the catchy songs are going to help keep me calm so I don’t freak out. The “Hot Drink” song is epic! Singing about adding H2O to my hot chocolate and not using my finger to stir my hot drink is sure to keep me keep me in a good mood.
I don’t know which training video is better; this one or Game Crazy. Of course, it’s hard to top Zelda Scott.
Funny that the founder never takes one bite from his burger.
Not if you actually know how these things work.
1. If he takes a bite, then they need to make a new burger for every take.
2. Food made to look good on camera is often treated in such a fashion to be inedible, especially if it’s not an advertisement for that particular food item.
3. If you take a bite from the food, you pretty much need to swallow it. Now imagine having to take a bite from a burger 15, 20, 25 times. You’d get full fairly quickly.
Unless it’s absolutely required, most actors won’t eat anything in a scene due to factors 1 and 3, or will be unable due to factor 2.
Thanks for the lessons Mike:) By the way, I think we can assume he doesn’t take bite because of his incredible acting skills. It’s option 1 for him.
Cold drinks a completely different science.
Dr. Insano invented cold drinks as a distraction for his evil plans
you asshole its stuck spoony its stuck i wish you die getting hit by a plane full of aspirin and medical and syringes which are unsenetraisd
[sorry for english[
yours noam lavi
you monster [portal 2]
Ummmmm, what? Not sure what you’re trying to say….is the video not working for you?
I love you Spoonster, this is what we wanna see. TSE Riff Theater rules!
Wow, 5 riffs for the price of one! I feel sorry for the guys who got stuck with Grill Skill instead of Hot Drinks. “I want my coffee belching smoke like the forges of Isengard!”
Also, whoever made that flash animation did a great job, but I hope you stick to your classic intro. Personally, I just prefer seeing all those great clips from your old episodes.
No way, the animated intro rules!!!! I’m not actually bothered either way, but if I had to pick I’d go with the animated one.
You know what’s sad? I now have the required skills to work at Wendy’s.
Wendy’s, Gamecrazy, and Nintendo. I wonder what the next course will be at The Spoony One Community Collage.
…dear god…those Quiznos commercials…those damn Quizno commercials
Wait, did spoony really work at Hotdog on a Stick? That’s awesome, that’s where I work part time right now, lol.
What the hell is a o-face’n Hamburger or Patty? Does it give you an o-face, do you jizz in your pants when eating one?
Since english isn’t my first language I couldn’t understand the Wendy’s guy at some points.
He was saying “old fashioned” in a really weird way. English is my first language and I barely understood him so don’t feel bad about that.
Thanks. If he says “old fashioned” that way I finally figured out the one Family Guy joke where Peter goes to
a KFC and demands to speak to “the colonal” and the cashier replies “he deeeeed”.
It’s the squareness that makes it cool.
It’s hip to be a square.
Oh no, don’t put spongebob an a bun. He is square shaped too
more hot drink music video
lol this script is entitled curtis goes to work…
Video Machine: I see you Curtis!
Curtis: is this another one of the Phantasmagoria scenes again?
Video Machine: Yes Curtis, but instead of an alien world, you are stuck in WENDYS
Curtis: So that explains why i’ve been sucked in to the machine.
Machine: Yes curtis. Now go make burgers.
The cables wrap around him to force him to make burgers…
Curtis: i hate flipping burgers…
Machine: Smack! make more burgers
The patties start talking….
Curtis: i seem to be sinking deeper into insanity..
Machine: Yes curtis I can hear your thoughts and you are…You will love your job
Curtis shortly after gives up on doing anything useful and dies stuck in Wendy’s World.
Wow, the last song in the Burger video… that’s powerful redneck…
Love those videos. MORE!!
Heheheh, great video.
Where’s that waiter I want my freaking potato!!!
Hehehe, you are right, that hot drinks song is incredibly catchy. makes me want to movie to America and work in a Wendy’s!
Great video, thanks :-)
For all of Dave Thomas’ odd pronunciations, him saying “bidness” is the funniest thing of all.
This feels like a playing of Whose Line is it Anyway’s Greatest Hits.
Songs of Wendy’s.
Oh good God. What is this I don’t even.
Is it just me or does Spoony seem really butt-hurt by Wendy’s? I mean, I thought Microcosm traumatized him more then anything but here he really seems to be letting some pent up anguish.
Not Wendy’s as a whole, but he’s definitely had a bad experience with their chilli…..ring sting will put anyone in a bad mood, as will finding a cat’s nose under the chilli cheese.
I for one have never had a problem with Wendy’s chilli. In fact I love it! It must be the Wendy’s in his neighborhood who’s employees hate humanity. Feel better Noa.
And yes, the overdone meat is recycled, but if they run out of chili, it takes 3 hours to make more.
Listening to this … Dave Thomas actually sounds like Dave Thomas (of SCTV fame) … weird.
Oh God. Oh God… please don’t have Dave Thomas rap. Please please please….
Oh! Good! It’s just a floating technohead flying out of a VCR. That’s not as horrifying. It just wouldn’t be Old Feshin’d.
Oh yeeeah, Miss Cold Drinks should’ve been doing the Hot ones cause she is one steaming cup of love, those lips, DAMN SON.
That was incredibly awesome Spoony. Though we all know the best training video is for the Krusty Krab.
More riff theater for the riff god please!
Love the new intro too! Now you need to get Disney to do the next one.
Spoony, you realize now that I can never eat a Windy’s milkshake again now that a reference to Two Girls, One Cup was made?
They’re not milkshakes, there’s no milk in them. That’s why they’re called frosties.
Not that I’m defending Wendy’s or anything…but actually, the Frosty is dairy. Low-fat milk, in fact; surprisingly, relatively healthy (although that’s not saying much) as far as QSR novelty items go. There are far, far worse things on the menu that it’s probably best you don’t know about.
Damn, I don’t know who told me that but I guess I’ve been wrong all this time. Either way, working at Wendys was terrible and the only good thing they have really is the spicy club chicken sandwich, that spicy chicken is so freaking tasty. I was really let down back when I worked there and they discontinued the frescata. That bread was amazing and it was a good samich, nice and healthy (sandwich meat, bread, and cheese).
If I ever go there, which I seldom do, when ordering a burger I always ask for fresh meat for my sandwich, seeing what goes on there I don’t trust the meat they already have waiting.
Didn’t understand a bit of that. What do you mean by “it’s stuck” and why do you want Spoony to die?
Oh my god! Spoony is going insane again! Run before he turns into him who waers spiral googles!
Hot drinks was definitely the winner..Though the Fresh Prince of Grill Skillz was a close 2nd.
These training videos with the pure 80s feeling sound like they should be somewhere in the background of the Last Dragon.
Ha! Wow, yeah… the thing about Wendy’s training vids is… they make you drink the Kool-Aid (though they weren’t NEARLY as awesome there as they were when I worked there).
Tweet a brother. I’ll tell you ALL the dark secrets of the chili… the truth is stranger than fiction that was sliced-off fingers…
So if I ever apply to Wendy’s, I can just tell them I follow the Spoony Experiement and get right to work?
lol no the new training videos are damn boring. On your first day, you end up taking a nice nap lol. They must have thought the videos were to entertainingEmployee in the back laughing histaricallyManager: Whats going on back there?Employee: Um nothing burst of laughterManager: Note to self quit making the training videos entertaining.
Wow, I though the training videos from 5 years ago were bad but DAMN. Did you know that they use 3 day old frozen burger patties for the meat in the chili? Yeah, try to remember that every time you think about getting it. The frosty is also called a frosty because it has no milk in it and can’t be called a milkshake. I really like your “smile as your soul is being crushed” comment, Wendys’ is the worst place to work ever.
I was hoping for some Mr. B Natural action in this someplace. We all know Mr. B would have rocked those grills.
God Spoony… After just watching BTTF Part II then this, I’m not sure I’ll be able to laugh for the rest of the week! Great job as always! I do indeed hate Wendy’s burgers.
This gave me horrible flashbacks to working in a UK McDonalds. They tried to teach me to serve carrot sticks.
Thanks Spoony. I feel like I’ve really learned something today.
I remember the last video, I used to work at Wendy’s. I loved the Clerks reference! How much do you think the average jizz mopper makes?
Depends. Does Wendy’s pay him to wring the mop out into the chili when he’s done, or is that service complimentary?
You know these videos are old when you see white people working at wendy’s. Pretty god damn funny; especially when the founder says you must have the talent equivalent of Michael Jackson to cook a burger patty.
I’m sure they show the same video nowadays, but it has all since been translated into Spanish and features nothing but “minorities”.
Because “Americans” are to good for the job.
Do be fair.
Despite Steven Brule’s Klantastic presentation, he does get something right; many of the fast food joints are staffed by ethnic minorities. In Southern California I’ve noticed that Carl’s Jr’s are heavily Hispanic, Wendy’s are mixed, and that the In N’ Out Burger’s are very white. Meanwhile in Philadelphia, due to the city being near black majority, most of the fast food places (including Wendy’s) are staffed by black people. What does this mean? NOTHING.
Dude. I don’t like how you worded that…
I really hope you’re just naive and don’t know how racist that sounds.
You racist cracka’!!!!
Just had to say that this intro kicked ass!
the intro rocks, the rest… not rly :/
The intro rocked srsly, not a fan of the other films tho
Not even Hot Drinks?? You may be dead inside.
Hah! Friggen awesome. =P Just pure awesomeness.
Good job on delivering these videos to the masses. =D
PS: Square hamburgers? Heathenous! Here in Sweden we have nothing but the best of the circular kind!
I like Wendy’s, they make good burgers and I like their fries (i really like salty fries and wendy’s has the saltiest).
What’s really weird to me though is I have never seen them make burgers like this… ever. The one time I worked fast food (at taco bell) I never had an instructional video either. I wonder where you get to see these or if they stopped making them in the early 90s. I’ve never had a job with an instructional video haha. I’ve heard Wal-Mart has some that are pretty crazy.
Anyway, im done rambling =P
Great video, this was funny.
Man, I got so screwed working at McDonalds in high school. All we had was this fucking training software that made you click the ingredients for a cheeseburger in order like 30 times in a row, then answer trivia questions about the history of Ray Kroc and the Big Mac.
“Hot Drinks” was awesome. That guy (assuming it was really him singing) is more talented than 99% of the actual singers I hear on the radio.
Damn you Spoony! I live right next store to Wendy’s and now I’ve got to go get me some double stacks after seeing this!
Awesome intro! Gotta watch the whole thing now tho :) Many creds to the dude behind the animation. Awesome!
He’s not kidding about the Hollywood Video videos, either. I worked at Game Crazy and they made us watch the Hollywood ones, too. The two I remember the best were the ones with robbery procedures, and the one with sexual harassment policies.
And yes… there were dramatizations for both.
They had no robbery procedures video when I worked at a video store, but you can bet your ass I wouldn’t put myself at risk in any way….I’d help the fuckers to the car with the till if they wanted.
Well that was cheesy and awesome like nothing I’ve seen… since whatever you showed us last anyway.
Come on Spoony mate, the person who linked you these videos deserves a shout out.
I know it’s not even close to being the same, but for some reason I couldn’t stop to think of:
Living rooms, bedrooms, diners, oh yeah,
you can find them, at the market,
we’re talking ’bout flea market,
Montgomery, it’s just like, it’s just like
A MINI MALL
It actually sounded more like “A mini…maul.” He always seemed to be half out of breath in that ad, but then the original went on for five minutes and god knows how many retakes.
Is it weird that seeing this makes me want to work at a McDonalds even more ? ( just for the experience and to draw comics about it. . . )
Oh no! Meatwad’s long lost sisters!
Do they still serve cookies? Do any of the burger places serve cookies anymore?
awesome, I was waiting for one of these for a while now.
Wow Spoony, you had mad rhyme skillz on that last video, though I am surprised you didn’t point out that Dave Thomas said Wendy’s was the best in the “bidness” multiple times. But that doesn’t at all detract from how awesome this edition of Riff Theater was. And I do have to say, the famed finger chili was actually at a Wendy’s close to my house
As I read this, I imagined Forester saying it and it was all kinds of awesome
Oh man, thank you for that. Back when I worked at Wendy’s, the drinks video was legendary. Nice little blast from the past.
Man, these music videos REALLY remind me of the music videos at the end of Bill Nye the Science Guy.
This is great because my first job was at a Wendy’s.
You said it, brother. I had those videos with quizzes at the end.
And Spoony, you haven’t lived until you saw those videos in Spanish.
ooooooooh gross Spoony GROOOOSS!!! that 2girls1cup joke! BAD SPOONY!
I think it would be worth it to go to the Wendy’s burger-grilling dimension just to find one of those shirts with bling stripes. Amazing.
hahaha that was awesome. thank god we don’t use those videos anymore(well Corp doesn’t anyways). Now we use WeLearn with simple tutorials explaining everything. But that hot drinks song is gonna be stuck in my head now :(
old fayshuned spoony
I swear to God that TV starts playing “Welcome to the Machine”.
I know right!
That was funny and great, I had quite a laugh, thanks man, you’re the best in the bid’ness.
We need a dance mix for the first two songs.
Monitor: Hello Curtis
Curtis: Um yeah, is this going to be one of the Phantasmagoria moments again?
Monitor: YES Curtis rather than send you to the alien world to confront your mother issues, you will be confined to Wendys
Curtis has been pulled into the tv where he is now in a rap video
Machine: Ok Curtis, time to run the grill
Curtis: I hate the grill, why do i have to do this..(he tries to make a run for it)
When Curtis goes to make a run the cords catch him holding him there
Machine: Now Curtis, work the grill FOREVER
I must come to the ones with the grill skills.
When it cuts from the chili being stirred to the dispenser roping out the soft serve it kinda looks like a “before” and “after.”
… I need to get out more.
These are awesome. Gonna go check the remixes now on Youtube.
Ehhhhh… I’ve always hated flash intros, so I’m jaded against the intro right from the start. I hope you don’t use it anymore as your intro was a million times more professionally awesome.
As for the Riffs, freakin awesome.
Also, I never thought I’d see a rapper who makes Soulja Boy seem competent.
Oh crap, that was so painful to watch. I can’t imagine how many times you’ve must of watched this. I’m sure after the 3rd time around those songs get pretty damn catchy. I already have Grill Skillz stuck in my head. One more thing; after watching this video, I think I’m going to stick to the chicken sandwich.
Thanks Spoony. For some reason this put me in a really good mood. *sings hot drinks*
Some Wendy’s restaurants use double grills. You put the patty on a flat grill to cook that bottom and pull down a top hatch to cook the top at the same time; no 1-4 corner press or flipping.
Wendy’s also has become very big on salads. You can get chicken-tossed salads, garden salads and special salads. How do I know this stuff? I have my sources.
Many Bothan spies died to bring you that information.
Now that we have their trade secrets, we should make our own burger chain – The Greasy Spoony.
A good ol’ fai’shun riffing. As soul-destroying as that job must be atleast you get a hilarious-ass video to start you off.
I worked at an A&W, myself… their training videos are C-Span compared to this!
It’s weird; Dave Thomas is from New Jersey, but he somehow has a Yooper-ish accent. I swear to God the guy sounds like Pickles from Dethklok when he says “old-fashioned.”
BTW, the guy singing the chili song sounds like he is ripping off Michael McDonald.
You have made my day sir, this is amazing.
new intro=awesome. Now I just need to get “Hot Drinks” on my ipod…
“That’s what I think women’s bra sizes should be!”
Especially the talking burgers part. I’ll never look at a Wendy’s burger the same after that.
That was great! Now if you’ll excuse me, I feel the sudden urge for a hot drink…
huh, come to your site and I leave with the qualifications to work at Wendy’s. Thanks, but no thanks. I work at a restaurant. All I can say is, customer service sucks the sack!
BTW, props for the “Goodfellas” reference. Hope you do more training video riffing.
Chili’s not the only thing that comes in large and small. You know what I mean?
…I love finding new ways to horrify with words.
New intro is Awesome.
Am I the only one who was getting Parappa the Rapper flashbacks from the part where the guy got sucked into the TV?
OMg dude I totally agree with you
That will haunt me for years to come…seriously…on a side note, the chili really isn’t that bad. After you’ve had my cooking any ways.
Holy crap that was fun to watch. You know, for the past few months I’ve felt TSE was slipping a little bit. Schedule slowing down, okay but sorta bland ICFBM, interesting but not especially funny game stuff, not really my thing for the most part. This was great, very well timed additions to the videos. I haven’t laughed his hard in weeks.
That was just..wow. I admit I will be thinking of Hot Drinks and the hamburger song too. “Are you rapping while working the grill there? That’s just creepy.”
i kind of don’t want my burger bigger then then bun i’m perfectly happy with my burger about the same size as the bun
I want MP3s. I want to play Hot Drinks on Audiosurf.
“Wasn’t this one of the best songs you ever heard?”
Damn Spoony, you are one crazy bastard, you know that?
Man, I love the internet! Seriously who needs television? Video’s like these will never see the light of day outside of the Wendy’s establishment if it wasn’t for the interwebs. Thanks Spoony for posting this!
By the way, I’m loving the new intro.
the founder of Wendy’s is Pickles from Dethklok
WENDY’S CHILI IS PEOPLE
Must have Hot Drinks song.
Must play it on loop FOREVER.
Dude Hot drinks song was awesome.
But the “gill skills” rap video was so dumb. We’re they doing acid when they made that video.
The black guy in “hot drinks” was really good but the black guy in “grill skills” wasn’t as good and the white guy was just plain bad.
LOL at all the chili comments by Spooney They made me LOL.
Wait. Was that really Dave Thomas? He doesn’t look…or sound right.
Cant get out my head the fact that defected hamburgs are used for their chili’s
Man that isn’t true, bacteria cant live in that stuff…
But “defective” hamburgers in the chili is not a bad thing, the only thing wrong with it is its broken up, which is what you want for the chili anyways. When they tell ya at the end of the day any unsold burger meat is to go in the fridge to be used for tomorrows chili…
is it me or did the hot drinks soud a lot like Tracy Chapman
havent seen a clerks reference since your SWAT 4 let’s play
… Wendy’s, where psychotic breakdowns and hallucinogenic visions are helpful and informative. Ah, but there are some demonic souls in this world which would wish to part you from our grasp-I-I mean embrace. To keep fighting for the forces of evi-I’m sorry, good, remember to throw the antipsychotics your doctor prescribed down the drain so you can continue to be part of our illustrious empire. And, of course, don’t forget that Wendy’s runs on your earnest souls-I-I mean hardwork! We run on your HARD WORK, and in no way are your souls being used by Lucifer to feed his army of demons.
I-I’ve said too much. Quick! Hide the burger flippers! They’re our main source of food-I mean TALENT.
I had to watch all of these when I worked for Wendy’s as the training coordinator. You haven’t seen anything yet, the baked potato video was circa 1984 and hilarious. It was so bad I was made to stop watching it because I couldn’t stop laughing while watching it. I tried to take them with me when I left, but they wouldn’t let me.
Oh my flying bovine giddy aunt! I nearly woke my housemate late a night with roaring laughter. FYI: Noah, I hate you and your spreading of the Wendy’s infection! XD
Fun useless fact: I was working at Wendy’s in 1988 (high school job, what can I say?) and they held a contest for all the crew to submit grill raps. I’m pretty sure the winning rap went into that training video.I don’t remember if this was the same contest, but I do remember one where the grand prize was a Suzuki Samurai…those jeep-like vehicles that would actually flip over on the highways if you got them driving fast enough. Kind of says it all, really.
I was waiting for Dave Thomas to say to the girl behind the counter, “So, you were having sex with the little fella.”
Is this Masterpiece Training Video Theater, with The Spoony One?
God damn these videos are awsome, especially the first one which is so great. I like the commentary, but it does ruin the song. The best alternative is to not talk and just type the jokes in last time. That way we get the best of both worlds.
It is too bad I can’t get it but I think you’d get a kick out of the training video I had to watch while working for my college’s dining center.
Imagine this: A buddy cop film about proper food service sanitation.
Waine are you going to get baike to Fainal Faintasy taine?
“Maybe I’m going insane” … *looks over at the guy in the spiral goggles* Umm… Spoony? I think it’s a bit late for that. Anyways, you -are- right, the first one is awesome, though it is downhill from there… and a very steep hill at that XD
holy fucking crap best opening ever, best video ever best spoony ever
The last guy reminds me of the guy from the “Don’t Copy That Floppy” video.
Yea, there is now a campaign with one of the rappers to “don’t download that crack”
“I said I’m Queeg Mofucka!”
I was sketpical going into this video but I have to say, you really were on top of your game with this one. ” Give them to the homeless, they’ll eat anything.” Between your riff and the image they used of a guy freezing, I had to pause the video I was laughing in tears at that point. I’d say I can’t wait until your next one, that will be hard to top though. I thought Game Crazy Zelda would be hard to beat. This really did go beyond though.
Where’s the song by Del tha Funkee Homosapien about washing your hands after using the restroom?
Upon further review, the “Grill Skills” song will probably be the only that gets stuck in my head along with the riffs ” I’m addicted to pills” and ” We don’t check for green cards.”
i hate you spoony!! :P
you know in australia, wendys is an ice cream franchise…..
Damn, that opening was awesome. My head DID explode.
These videos are awesome XD
Damn man, I’m DIGGING the opening.
o/` Like in 2 girls1 —
GOD DAMN YOU SPOONY
No comment on the awsome new intro?
I want to ask a Wendy’s trainee for a circular patty on my burger, their head would explooode.
Bring in a cute kitty and there would be a double explosion
Dammit now i’m in the mood for an old faayshion hamburger.
That was hilarious! I want more odd training videos to be riffed by Spoony. :D
Also, nice new intro you’ve got there.
these are supposed to be “good” songs? i’m sorry but these songs are terrible. they’re basically just a rip off from famous songs and the performance (especially the voices) are atrocious… my ears are still bleeding
Damn Wendy’s and their catchy Hot Drinks song. If I drank coffee, I’d totally sing that while making it now.
But, oddly enough, the only thought that ran though my mind while listening to that song was “I had coffee with McCauley… HALF AN HOUR AGO!”
My favorite videos are the FMV videos, especially watching the Ripper.
ooooooooookay, good to know.
Very good stuff, loved the animated intro and Hot Drinks was annoyingly catchy. But you missed a chance for wrestling related joke when the close up of the Wendy’s mascot appeared…
“Oh Hai Heath Slater” Then again, if you did a wrestling gag I’m sure that some of the more “traditional” commenter’s would give you shit.
“OMG you mentioned teh wrestling. I used to spooge at all your old videos but now that you mentioned wrestling I’ll never watch you again!!!! How DARE you not appeal to me and me alone!!!!! Die!!!!” You know, the well balanced guys with grounded perspective?
They’re so cheesy.
I don’t know about paying money to hear these songs, but they were pretty funny. The workers at the local wendy’s need to watch these because they don’t seem to stir the chilli enough. I didn’t order a cup of juice, I paid top dollar, so make sure you get some of the grade D 3 day old burgar meat in there and serve it ‘FrAsh’!
These were a funny set of videos though I think for the most part they stander on their own ad you alluded to so thanks for not having a ton of riffs. All in all they were quite enjoyable.
One other thing you mentioned the Gamecrazy video you did and while I found it ok I just couldn’t watch that one. Gamecrazy died a painful meaningless death. They were a superb company far better then Gamestop. They actually had people who knew their games rather then the idiotic ‘Madden’ gamers prevalent at Gamestops. It was a sad day indeed when they closed down.
Hahahaha thanks for these Spoony!
Though I actually love Wendy’s chili…
Oh god. The S.W.A.T reference in the opening made me laugh out loud.
Training videos in general tend to be awful. I remember we were forced to have a meeting where we had to watch one at my job and even the district manager was making fun of it. The meeting basically turned into Mystery Science Theater really.
Now come on Spoony these are still pretty goofy. I think I’d still be cringing or at least confused if I was a trainee.
Wow , I would listen to these songs on the radio any day , I want strangely want work in Wendy’s now
These are quite impressive for a fast food company. Using it in a music for at first sounds odd, but it does help you remember how to do things…..remember to fill at the line……..Anyway, these are a lot better than “The Phone Doctor” videos I had to watch back when I did call center work. The acting there was HORRIBLE! *shivers*
Wow.. that was freekin’ great! XD Keep ‘em coming!
I felt like it was the closing the music videos from Bill Nye The Science Guy!
I found a whole fingernail in my chili at Wendy’s once. Acrylic or real, I bit into it while eating and it scarred me for life.
They should make a song about adding Ketchup packets and not putting 50 napkins in a bag!I’m always tired of asking for ketchup, and when you do they look at you like you asked them for a million dollars. like “Ketchup packets!?! You want extra Ketchup packets!?! Hold on we have to get that approved with headquarters first!” I mean never mind that I spent like 20 dollars on a burger,a drink, and these all these salty ass fries. Try to give me 50 napkins and no ketchup because that’s what I really need. I always wondered if they kept their ketchup packets in a vault or something there? Like it’s their most prized commodity…and when they do give you ketchup packets it’s always like 1 or 2! WTF!I just brought 4 burgers and 3 large french fries and all I get is 2 damn packets of Ketchup!?!
You people won’t believe this! I just went to Wendy’s and ask the drive thru girl for a bunch of ketchup and of course she gave me the “Holy sh*t did you just ask for Ketchup Stare” and then the “You want Ketchup!?!” quote but she actually gave me a “bunch” of Ketchup! I feel like I should be taking pictures of this all fastfood gold! I guess I should also note that her boss yelled at her too for giving away the prized commodity or for not getting the fries I couldn’t quite tell. I like to think it was because she gave someone ketchup without calling in Wendy’s headquarters first to get it approved.
damn double post.
Oh, an old feashioned heamburger? Theeeeaanks!!
That didn’t work. Ignore that.
Damn, that new intro rocked. But since I’m part of the Spoony fanbase, I am legally required to bitch about something in every post. So here it is:It was too short! Me wanted more!Thank you.
Ok Spoony I am never watching these videos while eating again…you made me choke from fucking laughing so hard man…..not cool! Totally not cool……then again I am idiot for eating while watching a funny video but still…..fuck…..this made me crack up cause my buddy actually worked for Wendy’s and among the things that he’s done (aside giving us free food) there namely making a wendy’s lidmail…seriously he made a chainmail type vest out of twist ties and small cup lids and then wore it along with a to go bag as a helmet to get fired….which he died when he started screaming “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!” after a slow service.
Spoony, this video has some pretty interesting unintended consequences; when I was looking up Hot Drinks on youtube, in the related videos section, there’s some Italian chick breastfeeding a baby. And there’s so many people who came from your site, to hot drinks, to the breastfeeding. I guess Wendy’s Italian menu has some “hot drinks” of its own.
Don’t we live in crazy world?
It’s a pity that Spoony likes to blow off emails from his fans because he’s probably missed out on a bunch of cool stuff.
I doubt it’s “blowing off.” The dude probably gets hundreds of emails a day. If it takes 6 seconds to read an email, even 100 emails would be 600 seconds. That’s 10 minutes just to read. In case you’re wondering, six seconds is wonderfully optimistic. That doesn’t even count replies. Spoony, to read properly, and respond at all to every email he got would probably take 30 minutes or more of solid emailing. That’s pretty fucking unreasonable.
Basically, what I’m saying is, unless you have some compelling reason to characterize Spoony as purposefully blowing people off, rather than properly prioritizing his time, shut the fuck up, asswipe.
Dude is right… Spoony always mentions about how he gets lots and lots of e-mails. Not just now but I mean like since the beginning before he was updating like every other day. But the vid is proof that he does get to them… eventually.
Just FYI “blowing off” are the words Spoony used in the video so that’s why “I” used them.
You can go back to polishing his knob now. :)
I remember when I first got hired at Albertsons and I had to watch a training video that was so bad it almost made Plan 9 from outer space look like Citizen Kane. The first video I saw was a PARODY OF SEINFELD! I know the series had some pretty cheesy acting and situations but that video about good and bad customer service almost made put my tie to good use. After that raping of my senses and was too broken down to hold back any more propaganda they were going to shove down my throat I saw a Sherlock Holmes parody about safety and other random bits that you were going to forget about 10 seconds after the video. There is one interesting thing about that video though, if you listen very very closely you can actually hear Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spinning in his grave.
I had to sit through a safety video when I did work experience for Barclays that was so old it warned against playing Darts in the break room.
dammit Spoony, i woke up this morning with “Hot Drinks” in my head, and drinking my coffee before work made it worse!
Yeah, it did it to me while I was playing minecraft… and then it makes me want a hot drink.
I’m a sucker for catchy themes.
Its funny one of my uncles looks like Dave Thomas. Also the finger thing was a fake the person put it in there them selfs.
I always wondered why people looked so cheerful while working at these fast food places, now I understand why…hot drinks, really-damn corporate brainwashing!!!
Hot Drinks – Awesome song :) But what’s wrong with that owner? What’s his place of origin? He can’t pronounce a few common words? :)
Great review Spoony!
Didn’t the Videodrome Fry Cook say say not to touch the cheese with his hands? He totally used his hands to put it on the burger.
Watching and hearing “Hot Drinks” reminds me of how Michael Jackson was in the 80s.
You know, back when he was black.
And, you now, not dead.
Dave Thomas is giving Wilford Brimley a run for his money. I kept expecting him to warn us about the dangers of ‘diabeetus.’
The last line made me LOL!!!
It’s videos like this that make me pity fast food workers.
what? they had 3 songs for drinks but nothing for fries? this is bullshit!
It’s more like this Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill Nye the science guy.
Great riff Spoony lol
How long has it been since wendy’s actually looked like that? 15 years?
Yeah The Chili and the potatoes were apt to kill you probably quicker that Russian rulet.
“Wendy’s Chili! The secret ingredient is bacteria!”
Oh… I thought it was fingers.
Nah, not just fingers, the secret ingredient is people.
Man, all of these song were entirely useless! XD
But they were awesome, I mean you really have to be dumb if you don’t know how to fill a cold drink order… Even a hot drink one, in an addition to the storage of the cookies. The 90′s were so pointless… <3
That chili and those burgers man, nasty….
As Spoony said "Looks the same going in as it does going out."
And those burgers when they were on the grill and he was flipping them, I could hear someone's heart screaming at that one! It looked like the hamburger patty pissed itself when it hit the grill… Nnnnnnaaasty~
I just got home from work.
I caught myself singing “GOTTA SERVE THE DRINKS!” to myself a few times while there.
Spoony, you have made a powerful enemy.
OHMYGOD THAT IS THE GREATEST INTRO I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!! KEEP IT! KEEEEEEEEP IIIIIIITTT!!!!
You know… I suffered through many a training video. They demeaned my intelligence and taught me nothing useful. The ONE place this is different… I would have actually stayed AWAKE and even ENJOYED watching these training videos.
They’re … awesome. Yes they may be entirely pointless and could have been summed up in 5 minutes by talking to someone who KNOWS what they’re doing, but they were at least entertaining.
I have literally fallen asleep watching boring-ass training videos.
I saved myself by playing some Kamen Rider opening songs which are addictive as can be. Even that didn’t i would have put up the Duck Tales opening as a fail save :P
Nice riff Spoony, really interesting how they seem to show exactly everything that i already knew about fast food kitchens XD
Why was I not shown these videos when I was trained at Wendy’s?
Man, fuck that place.
Hey all, this is Nick (I made the intro). Sorry I’ve just been lying silent all this time (I’d been trying to post before, wasn’t working out for some reason) but I did just wanna say thanks for all the praise you’d been giving the intro! I put my heart, my soul, and three months of my time into it, and the great reception really has made it feel worthwhile. Many thanks!
I love this intro man! :)
pure genius. loved the blitzball and the flashbang.
yeah, nice intro :)
It’s an absolute triumph Nick. I hope to see it in again in Spoony’s future videos, because it deserves to be seen again and again. You sir are neigh-peerlessly awesome.
Awesome work :D
The intro was great! I love all the in jokes and the fluid animation you used.
personally- dr insano getting fuse box shock….the best
I’m going to go to Wendy’s tomorrow and ask for a hot drink :3
“This is mutiny Mr. Queeg!”
Red Dwarf references lol!
Great Riff Spoony. You should involve Burton, like in MST3K!
I’m not going to lie, I have to admit your Game Crazy riff is hilarious. I always love hearing your laugh after Zelda Scott says, “Booyah!” It just cracks me up listening to your laugh in the background.
Great job with this one too! I’m liking these riffs!
Oh god, I used to work at Hollywood Video, great job since I was a movie junkie but the instructional videos were just hilarious. My manager told me to not take them seriously that i’ll learn everything on the job and that he’ll come back to check on me if he hears no laughter within 10 minutes. You really need to find the dumpster diving one Spoony.
“the cat meat rests on the bottom” I lol’d for like 20 seconds
I gotta say, having worked at McDonald’s and Burger King in my time, Wendy’s has the most complicated grill process. Not that any of them are really complicated, but there’s just more to it at Wendy’s then there is at the other two.
anyone else notice in the new intro the first one Spoony punches out is Linkara?
Actually its not Linkara he’s punching – it’s everyone’s favorite detective Magnotta from the Ripper games! You can tell because if you look carefully he flicks off Spoony as he tumbles out of frame and his hand is stuck in that gesture in the pile of characters at the end. Though I will admit I thought of using Linkara at one point, I decided against.
Just un-F**KING believable isn’t it? XD
hahaha ok Nick thanks for telling me, but in my defense they both wear the same hat. hehe awesome none the less.
Love the animated intro!
The animated intro. Pure win.
That was so awesome. I wonder why “The Crew” and their record label “Wendy’s Music Int’l” never hit it big? I couldn’t even laugh because my mouth was agape in pure amazement/awe of the epic WTF that these videos were. The 80′s – The red headed step child of all decades, EVER…LOL. Great intro too.
why does dave tomas remind me so much of john c. reily. why could i see him saying over and over again “so the patty..hangs over the bun…i can’t stress this enough people.”
Without subtitles, I can’t understand a word the guy sings. I can’t hear “English” in music due to bad hearing & being used to foreign music, so you could play this on the radio & I’d have no idea it was about food.
That’s it, I’m staying AWAY from wendy’s chili. I mean for all know the chili meat could’ve been raw or dropped on the floor.
I lived in the town where a woman reported a finger in her Chilie; it was rubber though.
Yeah but I heard she was a con artist and she got busted.
I’ve worked at Wendy’s. Spoony is not wrong. Broken patties and patties that fell into the grease drain on the sides of the grill get put in a heat drawer were they are left for what is supposed to be one hour, but in reality is not emptied more than twice a day. The meat is chopped up and dumped into the chili mix and viola! Chili!
Gee Noah you sure do love stealing/making money off of other people’s work, first it was After Last Season, now this.
Do you have no respect for copyrights? Or the owners of intellectual property? :/
it quite a difference, these kind of videos are already made and paid for, Wendy do not loose any money on having there training video put up for free on the net
In some way, isn’t it also free advertising? Granted, the burgers and all look kinda disgusting in these videos, but it’s still all Wendy’s propaganda. “People come to us because our burgers are square” and stuff like that. TBH I haven’t though about going to Wendy’s in a couple of years. Now … ugh… I’m actually considering it.
copyright nazi ahead
herp derp… What is parody? What is it? herp derp
*slams down giant big book of American Copy right law”
Look what I found!
Ah look what it says here.
“Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 17 U.S.C. § 106 and 17 U.S.C. § 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, satire or parody, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

3. the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
4. the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.”
Oh my GOOOOODDD?! Are you saying that this is protected under fair use? WHAAAAAAT??!
Oh gee I guess that’s why Rifftrax sell whole movies with their commentary for it added on and pass it off as “parody” hurpa durp
Oh wait they don’t because they’d get the pants sued off of them.
Oh gee you seemed to miss “the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole”, so when Noah says “I’m just going to shut up and let this one roll” for the first video, it kinda works against his case for fair use.
That and he’s making a profit from it working against #1 on your list, so at best it’s very disputable
its the video equivalent of abandonware, Wendy’s inc doesn’t give a shit about this footage anymore. Are you a lawyer? if so you better read the law again and if not STFU
if he didn’t have any respect he would have left up his after last season riff which is protected under fair use. noah himself said he did it because they ‘asked nicely” sounds like respect to me.
He did it because he got caught, don’t kid yourself. He put it up thinking nobody that had anything to do with such a poor film would ever see his video and he got busted.
His after last season riff wasn’t protected under fair use, if it were then I’d be able to sell bootleg DVDs of current films because I added a couple of jokes in.
sorry read the definition of fair use below, and if that is the logic Rifftrax wouldn’t exist. Also Noah expressly told us he did it because they asked nicely, ASKED not demanded. Because they couldn’t have demanded because what Spoony does is protected by law.
cool story, bro.
If you’re such a big copyright nazi, why not attack a more obvious target like rifftrax? People make a living riffing videos there. But its more likely you’re just trolling for reactions.
I love Wendy’s. Their fries are the best! And the meat “hanging over the bun” is better too. Overall better flavor and after-taste than the competition.
But having watched this video, I think I will now avoid the chili…
Oh, and what’s up with Dave Thomas’ strange accent lol
Guh, no more, no more…. The very thought of working in a fast food restaurant in it’s unhomemy environment & living life like a stressful time management game has depressed me. :(
Lyrics: Hot Drinks
Coffe, decaff, tea or hot chocolate
Those are the hot drinks that you serve so dancing
Hot cups come in two sizes
Small or large has the need arises
Coffe’s holding time is 30 min, is that so long
It can stay there before it start to taste to strong
Careful when you pour it
Hold it steady upon the counterlid it said
Pour it in till the coffe reaches, the line.
Pop a top on it
Gets a lid everytime,
Wendy’s coffe taste so fine
Hot Drinks really gets you going,
Warms you up, when you feel you’re slowing
Wendy’s we always serve it right away
Add a smile and have a nice day
Next is decaff brew it just like coffe,
Use the orange body it makes easier to see
But if you’re using the packages in your store
Then put it in a small cup and furthermore
Add hot water up to the line, and stir it in
Put a lid on it and serve it on a tray again
Get small cup when you’re ready for a hottie
Fill it without water, it’s easy as can be
Put the lid on it and set the teabag on the top
If they want lemon it’s very nice, don’t think twice
Give the guest a juice slice
Grab a small cup when you’re making hot choco
Put the packet in and then you add your H2O
Use a clean spoon, and stir it till it’s all mixed up
Toss the spoon out and put the lid on the cup
Things are really looking up
Damn you Spoony!
*Hot drinks, really gets you going..!*
I love the fact that when Dave Thomas finally gets his burger he does not take a single bite of it.
Great videos but your riffing still needs work Spoony, it just wasn’t funny. I don’t know It’s still very MST3K lite… the only time I’ve ever laughed at your riffs is when I recognize jokes taken from MST3K, you should find your own voice and stop borrowing so much of their material. But hey I’m sure fans will fall all over themselves to say it was great but then some people think Jay Leno is hilarious. Stick to your reviews they’re your bread and butter.
Holy shit I almost spewed water all over my desk when the singing patties came up! Now I wish my first job had been Wendy’s instead of Wal-Mart. Then I’d be the one with the Grill Skills.
By the way, is that a Pokéwalker I spy on your desk? :3
I love how the chili song doesn’t even try to rhyme. Man that’s old…I haven’t seen the taco bar since I was a kid!!
Cooking burgers to rap music was more fun in Parapper the Rapper 2.
It’s been 24 hours and yes, hot drinks is in my head. Damn you Noaaaaahhh!!
its seriously stuck in mine i cant get it out, not even listening to it again fixes it…this is on par with the amount of trauma”It’s a small world” gives you.
You know, when I worked at Wendys about 10 years ago, our training video’s were boring to endure. Hell, I would of killed for these videos compared to the insomnia cures that were my training videos. Great riffing Spoony.
good riffing, too much of a preliminary explaination.
and by the way.
I, too have grill skills. Yyep, I once cooked a patty all by myself.
this is the best video ever…..EVAR
Spooney >.> Please just go to hell.. T.T i work at McDonald (Aka The Mc Soul Grinder), and i will be singing hot drinks forever. but i love it. kinda wish Mcds had sweet music videos all we get are mind rotting powerpoint style crap. Good video man
cool.i wish my workplace had such cool training videos(sigh)
These videos were indeed pretty awesome and funny as well. I got to agree about the hot drinks one being the best. That video was just as funny as the Game Crazy (or whatever it was called?) but in a different way. I agree, its hard not to smile while watching this.
Thank you Spoons, for your constant hate on Wendy’s chilli. One of the ingredients in said chilli is sand- fucking sand- just do a search online. They use it to prevent clumping- fuck Wendy’s chilli. (jr bacon chee for the win.)
Dammit, Spoony. You were right. I found myself looking up “Hot Drinks” on youtube. *bows head in shame*
I laughed long and hard at the Spongmonkeys Quiznos reference. I was totally not expecting that. XDDDD
Damn, you weren’t kidding.
Epic intro dude!
Hot Drinks is definitely MJ meets Billy Ocean.
LordKaT and his ilk have been singing “Hot Drinks” in the Ustream chat for the last two days. :)
And to think: when I worked at Auntie Anne’s, all I got was a lousy notebook to read!
Oh, yeah: New opening = Epic. That is all. ;)
I like your videos spoony, but I disagree. I don’t think these songs are by any means epic. Certainly not “the best I’ve ever heard… ever”
They’re good enough for their purpose, though. But I would never listen to them ever again.
lol funny stuff i wonder why Dr,isano wasn’t in the intro
He was at 0:26
I can’t stop singing “Hot Drinks”! These music videos are really awesome!
Ugh…these are worse than the videos I had to watch when I worked at Wendy’s. You are right about that “bio hazardous chili”, though. They would make us use the meat from burgers that were mistreated, burned, old…freeze it in bags for up to 2 weeks, then boil it down. Most of the meat used for it is total crap.
I’m not touching that chilli anymore. I want to puke now at the thought.
Is it just me, or was the opening of Pink Floyd’s “Welcome to the Machine” playing when you saw Bill from inside the monitor screen (at the same time as the HAL reference)?
Thank you I thought I was the only one who noticed that!
Maybe I’m a boring person, but I would personally prefer a plain ordinary instruction video over these musical ones. Still, I do appreciate the work and skill that was put into these.
wow…and I thought the Jack in the Box training videos were cheesy lol
Theres only one thing I can say to this…
This is on par with the horrendous video I had to watch in high school when I worked at Chick-fil-a. That abomination was called “Billy Ted’s Excellent Safety Adventure.” Imagine how that was. Amazing!
No offense Spoony but your riffing sucks. The only time you’re really funny is when you’re angry so stick to stuff that pisses you off I guess cause otherwise you’re kinda bland.
Sorry don’t want to bring you down but if you only listen to the people on here who’ll jump at any excuse to blow smoke up your skirt you’ll never get better then this, and I assume you want to get to the point where people would pay good money to hear your stuff, and right now you’re a long way off. Later.
keep in mind, he said it was difficult to come up with riffs for these videos because he was genuinely impressed by them.
Though the “belching smoke from the forges of Isengaurd” line was easily the best riff.
no offence but that´s your opinion, nothing else.
See, the thing is, when you’ve got god knows how many fans and you combine that with the fact that you’re selling a product, it really doesn’t matter one lick what one dude says in the comments. If you’re selling something, you watch trends, not individual comments. I produce and sell a product, do you think I change my whole method every time someone gives me a less than glowing review? Nobody does that. That would be the worst business decision ever. You watch trends, count comments, analyze your traffic, you do not pay attention to people’s opinions in the comment section unless you get a real tsunami of similar reactions and create a controversy (see FFVIII for a good example). Do you really think little jabs like that help anyone? That some day, when Spoony’s hosting his own show on Comedy Central, he’s going to look back and think: “Thank God years ago that one dude in the comments told me my riffing sucks. I’d be nowhere without that guy. In fact, let me buy him a yacht right now.” No? You don’t? Your comment is completely inconsequential and it’s lame to pretend you’re doing it to help someone when you’re just being a bit of a jerk? Thought so.
You have to stir, whip, whip whip, stir for the chili to work properly.
In fairness this is more interesting than some of the training videos I’ve had to endure in my time, although I have to say that the burgers look pretty gross.
Good job Spoony, even if I have grill skills stuck in my head.
Why Spoony? Just… why? Every time I press the button on my coffee machine… Hot drinks really get you going… Every single time! WHY!?!!
I love Hot Drinks!
Oh, poor Dave Thomas. RIP.
He died wealthy, he got his GED, his company makes nice frosty desserts….You want to feel sorry for somebody, feel bad about Preston Tucker.
The hot drink guy should become a meme. He is just as awesome as the bartender in the rickroll video.
23:40- That burger pressing looks gross.
After seeing these, I don’t want to work at fast food.
I’M QUEEG MUTHAFUCKA!
that made the video for me
The bra sizes riff made me roflmao.
Hi … laaaa … rious.
Wasn’t going to watch this, then caught myself wanting to dance to one. Not saying which.
Riff was good and video all good. Animated opening….not so much. Sorry in advance if you animated it or a close friend but it looked TERRIBLE. The pupils were square and anatomy was really bleh…the drawing was really bleh. I’m gathering it was someone’s first day using flash? You should do what was animated as a live action, would’ve been better. The character looked nothing like you.
their chili isn’t hazardous… it just makes your shit glow green under a UV light.
*5 days later*
*Hot drinks – really get you going…”
Oh, Cthulhu, make it stop!
I’ve still got that god-damned Hot Drinks song stuck in my head, even after 5 days, repeated ear-scrubbings with Elton John and The Beatles. What hath Spoony wrought? DX
31:12 It looks like someone’s farting flames. How did you not catch that??
In Spoony’s defense this “music” video was so shitty it was easy to overlook that crappy flame overlay.
Sorry, Spoony. The catchiness of Hot Drinks is nothing before the might of
NEW BREAKFAST AT BK!
Gotta love those “ol fashened hammburgas”
Great vid as always Spoony, I’ve only got one complaint you totally missed a chance for a Mr. Bill OHHHH NOOOO there in the final video. Oh well can’t catch’em all
I think that last video turned me off burgers forever. I already didn’t like beef, but holy christ that looks disgusting.
I think either the griddle isn’t hot enough, or they’re not cooking them long enough before flipping or something, but those are the grossest burgers I’ve ever seen.Then again, the only times that I’ve ever bit into a burger and discovered small bits of cartilage in it was at Wendy’s. So they look as good as they taste.
I remember seeing the grill rap portion of this video about five years ago with some friends, during a time when we were all working crappy fast-food jobs of one sort or another. Rewatching this renewed my conviction never to work a crappy food-service job ever again. It also reminded me not to bother seeking out the only Wendy’s in Honolulu.
“Hot Drinks” is going to have to compete with The Gregory Brothers’ “Bed Intruder Song” and “Fuck You” by Cee Lo for Ear Worm of the Week, as far as I’m concerned.
great riff spoony, loved the original zelda one, and this one’s good too, was the last video made the same decade as the others, seemed like the first 4 would be 90′s and the video one in the 80′s
definately keep the live action intro, so much funnier
Love watching your stuff, classic :)
The live action intro was pretty cool, but his hair is way too dark. Otherwise it was good. My favorite is generally the original “break me” intro with Yuna singing and (Dirty) Dynasty Warriors Dancing.
I just think the animated intro is poorly animated is all.
In “defense” of the burger video, that’s pretty crap lighting on pretty cheap filmstock
This is so cheesy but also so mind numbingly entertaining.
Reminds me of one of those games in Whose Line is it Anyway.
“Okay, now give me a song about… serving drinks… in the style of Gospel music.”
this will be THE ONE!!!!!
I have no idea what the crap I just saw nor do I wish to ever find out… It’s like the makers just got high on everything possible and drunk at the same time and designed the videos…
The drinks videos made me want to go to Wendy’s which is pretty impressive since the last time I ate at one (several years ago) I and my whole group of friends got sick from eating there. Then I saw the grill skillz video and was like nooooooooo you are ruining good meat! One is totally not supposed to press a burger, you push out all the good juices. Though the yo, dawg joke had be loling.
I worked at Taco Bell in the late 90′s and remember having seen a Gordita instructional video (done in the style of presenting a REVOLUTION!) done by the Taco Bell Chihuahua. If it can be found I am sure it is lulz worthy.
I live in the UK, we don’t have Wendy’s and I feel I am now missing out!
I love the new intro…have had to rewatch this video several times. Its really well conceived in that it shows so many great moments all throughout spoonys vids. I really lol’d irl when I saw the swat lets play reference.
That was awesome.
To be honist, I am just happy that Persona 4 was on the good games shelf. Shin Megami Tensei does not seem to get much recognition on TGWTG.
I actually have a half finished review of the SNES megami tensei remake but I got a bit tired half way though. It really makes you appreciate Spoony’s work. I want to finish it soon when im in the mood and I hope people will like it enough to motivate me to review the second game (I was planning a retrospective.)
But yea onto the actuall video. I thought that the video actually made it look pritty presentable. I always imagined fast food kitchens to be horrable places and it did make me want to eat at wendy’s but I am english and I think if we have any Wendy’s restraunts we dont have many. But yea… hot drinks was suprisingly amazing. Grill Skillz would have been way better if it was done in the same style as the others but with heavy metal and flame going everywhere….
On second thoughts that may have just turned out silly… but at least comedically so! The again the rap bit kinda does that anyway…
Oh wow. The rap and Grill Skills were HORRID. Dreadful
I love the animated intro. That kicked ass
i now know how to work at Wendy’s
i now know the only job I’m qualified to do now is serving at Wendy’s…
It’s SOOO 80s! ^^
(Fortunately there’s no Wendy’s in germany.)
now get back to work! :D
I thought it’s bad to press on hamburger meat. If I remember right, it pushes out the juices that actually make the burger taste good. If I also remember, it can also cause a grease fire which isn’t that smart either….
So, that’s why Wendy’s burgers weren’t that good until they went under new management after “what’s his face” died.
Here’s a “coincidence” – the Grill Skills video was actually talked about on Head Injury Theater a while ago. Which is the website of Jared von Hindman, the artist responsible for the logo for TSE.
I’m Queeg mother fucker!
I liked the song at the end of Grill Skill.
More Training Videos ! :D
I work at Windy’s and now i can’t get hot coffee out of my head!
So I’m down with not wearing gloves and all, good for the immune system. But I keep burning myslef horribly when I use my tool to check the meat… MEDIC!
i want an old fayshioned hamburger
Dave Thomas sounds like Pickles the Drummer.
I hate to say it but you aren’t that far off on your commentary for the chili. When I worked there, the way they made it was to take the burnt burgers that no one ordered, saved them, recooked them, chopped them up and threw them in the just defrosted chili, then cooked it again. Not to mention that it was made with the meat from the previous day. So glad I am done with that place.
And so begins the 3rd time watching this :D
I agree on the chili, I seriously think that stuff has the same half-life as military grade plutonium.
Every time I pour myself a cup of coffee, I find myself singing Hot Drinks.
This is a good video to see if you aren’t necessarily a “gamer” or “geek”.
Wendy’s fraysh, old fayshioned, hambuguhs are the bayst in the bidness.
hmm, if they really wanted to put that rancid chili to good use, they’d start serving hot dogs
what about the quadrupal baconator thats the bad one the chili is awesome
oh come on the chili is one of the best things about Wendy’s next to their sea salt fries. You want an unsanitary food from Wendy’s why not go after the quadrupedal baconater
Quadrapedal? o.o IT WALKS? D:
Quadrapedal means four legs. It doesn’t have anything to do with talking :p
Hey Spoony, I used to work at Hollywood Video and I can confirm that, yes, the training videos were ridiculous – especially the sexualy harassment video.

FIND IT AND SHOW HIM!
of your videos i think this is the one i’ve seen the most (this and the warrior crossovers because those are just priceless) the songs engrain themselves in your brain…and, if you think about it from that angle they are actually a VERY effective training method…ridiculous, but oddly effective
plus, as always, your commentary is enjoyably witty and amusing :D
Something went wrong! I want to try that chili…
Shove a Butch T Scorpion pepper up your ass, and that’s exactly what it feels like.
It’s not so much chili as, like, chili-flavored soup. It’s what you’d expect from fast food chili, while I don’t think it tastes BAD, it’s too…. safe, just very mild and not much to it.
If you’re looking for something really robust or spicy, this ain’t it.
I happen to gonna be eating a wendy’s burger while watching this. I LOVE their burgers. :D
Are they nice and fraysh? :3
The Grill Skills video was the most revolting thing I’ve ever seen. After witnessing what the meat looks like when it’s on the grill, I don’t want to eat a Wendy’s burger again for the rest of my life.
What the fuck?
Man when i worked at wendys I’d of not hated working there if only they had this video! :(
“Just like in two girls one cuuup.” FUCK YOU SPOONY! I CANT EAT ICECREAM NOW!!
I feel like the Serve the Drinks song could be a theme song to a 1980s sitcom. Maybe about a single, working-class mother who has a night job as a bartender with like a sassy black best friend working there, and a stuffy but good-natured boss. And they do that thing in the opening credits where they freezeframe on the cast members smiling at the camera when they show their names.
Someone build a time machine so we can travel back to 1982 and get this greenlit.
When you’re feelin’ the heat
I just sneezed in the meat
That rapper sounded like Melle Mel. Pretty sure it wasn’t though.
i used to work at wendy’s here in muscatine, and to be honest they really are THAT good!! and yes, youd have to be a super sour puss if you cant get a smile, or an honest chuckle out of these videos.
Interesting that every time Spoony referenced a song, it was a hit from the ’80s.
….come to think of it, how old are these training videos?
this looks like it was made in between 1989-1994. The glasses look very 90s and so did the cars in the drive-in
23:30 sweet Jesus those are some greasy burgers….
Lmao Cause the Burgers stink
Voyager got it’s holodecks from Wendy’s?
FYI, right after watching this video, I went to Wendy’s. Got 2 W’s and a Grillen Chicken…AND RAT CHILLI
Is it bad i actually like Wendy’s Chilli? ;^^
The 80s were a funny time. I love Wendy’s.
Did you see Dave’s tray? Burger, fries, soda, shake AND chili. My God.
The girl in cold drinks is hot. I want to do her.
um…..i never watched these when i worked at wendys. wait…this is pre `97…. nevermind
You should check out the Stop and Shop one….no songs, but it was just so bad with “born to bag” the story of a young man that was bagging since he was 3…..how high were they?
Am I the only one who thinks all of these songs sucks, including the first one? Hell, I think the first one is awful. I’m sorry – just not my taste, I guess.
Hot Drinks kicks @$$!
Love this riff, but in the words I just created right now: We all have grill skills. Nothing special about that, but nothing wrong with that. Just experience, that’s all.
I worked at Wendy’s for 3 years. And I’m just issuing a PSA warning you all to NOT eat the chili! We DO use the burnt or old meat in the chili. It really is Russian Roulette. XD
