Watch a Fake Chef Punk Local News Anchors

Here's chef and cookbook author Keith Guerke in a few morning show appearances he did in Illinois and Wisconsin over the holidays. The only thing is Guerke's not a real chef: he's an actor who is part of a stunt orchestrated by the Found Footage Festival. Nick Prueher scammed his way onto the shows in order to feed unsuspecting news anchors meat smoothies and lukewarm mashed potato ice cream cones while posing as the incompetant Guerke.

The fake Guerke specializes in dealing with leftovers, which he tells one local news reporter below is an especially stressful issue for some people: "Between Thanksgiving and Christmas is one of the highest suicide rates, and I think part of that is because of the stress of what are you going to do with these leftovers." He also has a leftovers charity that's "like a canned food drive, but with leftovers." These are real local news segments. Go, watch:
