This Senior Couple Hilariously Botches A Simple Line While Making A Commercial

John “Jack” Palmer and Sonja, his wife of 56 years, are regular customers at Dysart’s Restaurant in Bangor, Maine.

When Sutherland Weston Marketing Communications set out to make a commercial for the restaurant, they decided to cast regulars to capture the eatery’s local flavor, including the Palmers, who’ve done a few spots for Dysart’s in the past.

Although Dysart’s noted that the commercial was written to cut from customer to customer, with each having a “line consisting of 7 words or less,” John had a little trouble with one of his lines about the chicken pot pie.
