Actors Yelp it up

Marc Sanchez Aug 2, 2012

There has hardly been a more pure poetic moment than when CNET convinced Richard Dreyfuss to read Apple’s end user agreement. If that was an Academy Award winning performance, then maybe this crop of actors reading Yelp reviews deserve an Emmy, or at least a Golden Globe. Yes, there is now a project where people (like me) go to YouTube and watch other people read Yelp reviews.
A little more compelling than you might think, and I can’t wait for creator Joe Plummer to snag the likes of Samuel L. Jackson or Nicholas Cage for future readings.*

*As far as I know, neither Jackson or Cage have been approached for the project. But, one can dream, right?
