[00:00:37] CHELSEY DONN: Hello,

[00:00:38] TREY GERRALD: Hey, welcome once again to Review That Review. We are the podcast that is dedicated to reviewing,

[00:00:47] CHELSEY DONN: reviews. That lovely voice is Trey Gerrald.

[00:00:51] TREY GERRALD: and that lovely voice was ChelseyBD Duwan. But when we come together, you know that we are.

[00:00:58] VOICEOVER: The Review Queen.

[00:01:02] CHELSEY DONN: But first Trey, it is your week. 'I. Know you've had A' whole week. Would you like to,

[00:01:09] VOICEOVER: A' Complaint.

[00:01:10] TREY GERRALD: Yes, 'I would, 'I fell victim

[00:01:13] CHELSEY DONN: oh no.

[00:01:14] TREY GERRALD: several weeks ago, maybe even A' month at this point. 'I did Instagram about it, so you may have seen, but um,

[00:01:20] CHELSEY DONN: What '

[00:01:20] TREY GERRALD: I was, 'I was working out at the gym, and um, 'I kept noticing this girl was, um, live streaming her workout at the gym.

[00:01:31] CHELSEY DONN: Oh

[00:01:32] TREY GERRALD: Are you out of your motherfucking mind? Have we succumbeded that horribly as A' culture 'I?

Are you fucking kidding? Let me just put into perspective here. This was A', gorgeous, beautiful woman, very physically fit. She did not break A' bead of sweat and 'I am in the background, like dying of sweat, like 'I am A' sweater. So I'm sweating, but like disgusting

[00:01:57] CHELSEY DONN: were you in footage? The footage

[00:02:01] TREY GERRALD: but let me just paint the picture.

This is A' gym, right? She has A' little mini tripod that her phone is attached to, and she goes, and she'll do three reps on like the quad machine,

[00:02:15] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah.

[00:02:15] TREY GERRALD: and she's like looking over and like smiling and batting her like false eyelashes, right? She has like,

Giant makeup on like 'I. Do drag makeup 'I. Know when someone's face is beat.

You are at the gym ma'am. And then she would do her three little reps and go bend her little ass over face to face with A' camera. Hi Casper girl. 17 'I. Love you Gina. Jason 7 65. Throw me some hearts fans and then she would like have on full conversations. Live streaming at the gym.

[00:02:52] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. You did not volunteer to be A' Background actor.

[00:02:55] TREY GERRALD: No, honey Child 'I. Pay my annual dues cuz I'm A'. Principal performer on camera. 'I do not work in the background unless you're gonna pay me. Okay. Honey Child 'I could not believe it.

[00:03:09] CHELSEY DONN: that's terrible. 'I.

[00:03:10] TREY GERRALD: live streams their workout.

[00:03:13] CHELSEY DONN: 'I mean it's bad enough when people are like recording their workouts?

[00:03:18] TREY GERRALD: Yes.

[00:03:19] CHELSEY DONN: Anything more than that? Unacceptable.

[00:03:23] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean. It is annoying to me when people are recording themselves, but 'I also get, that's accountability for people. And sometimes people document their journey, so Sure. Okay. But the audacity to livestream while you're at the gym, it is like the most narcissistic, like 'I, 'I, 'I, 'I am like baffled. I'm at A' loss for words.

That you are that self-absorbed to engage in the narcissistic practice of saying hello to your virtual fans. Like it's so,

[00:03:59] CHELSEY DONN: you didn't rent out the gym as your A' film studio,

[00:04:02] TREY GERRALD: but on top of all of that, it was so weird to me that this girl was not really working out.

[00:04:08] CHELSEY DONN: right?

[00:04:08] TREY GERRALD: all like feigning the work. But obviously she was someone who does work out, but she was not sweating.

[00:04:15] CHELSEY DONN: she probably like films that like, does like whatever she needs to do and then actually goes and like works out because you, how could you work out and do that?

[00:04:23] TREY GERRALD: You couldn't, you couldn't

[00:04:25] CHELSEY DONN: you couldn't 'I mean you can't be anaerobic and being like, hi Stacy, 1 25.

[00:04:31] TREY GERRALD: 'I. Mean 'I. Just 'I. Couldn't get over the calling out of the names of the

[00:04:35] CHELSEY DONN: So obnoxious. Like beyond obnoxious. I'm sorry you had to deal with that Trey.

[00:04:40] TREY GERRALD: That's my Complaint. Just, you know, if you are ever someone that live streams the workouts, just pause for A' second and just zoom out. Look, look at what we're doing on this planet.

That's my Complaint. Well, 'I, 'I am glad 'I was able to release that, and now you've had to take it on. So that feels better in my mind.

[00:05:00] CHELSEY DONN: You know what? It's my pleasure to take away some of that.

[00:05:03] TREY GERRALD: Thank you.

[00:05:04] CHELSEY DONN: You're welcome. Yes,

[00:05:05] TREY GERRALD: are you ready to share with me the review you brought in for this week?

[00:05:09] CHELSEY DONN: 'I am. Should we jump in?

[00:05:12] TREY GERRALD: Let's do it.

[00:05:16] VOICEOVER: Review, That, Review.

[00:05:19] CHELSEY DONN: As you know, we are your trustee. Review Queens. We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

[00:05:27] TREY GERRALD: We read you that review, then we break it down together and rate the impact of the review on A' scale from zero to five crowns. It's A', very regal process that ChelseyBD and 'I call.

[00:05:38] VOICEOVER: Assess, That, Kvetch.

[00:05:39] TREY GERRALD: So share with us ChelseyBD. What is today's review? 'I.

[00:05:43] CHELSEY DONN: All right. Every once in A' while you know, 'I hop all over the internet trying to find interesting reviews for Trey and 'I to talk about. And so 'I did happen upon A' Reddit feed of zero star reviews. So 'I started just sort of reading through some reviews and 'I found one. 'I. I'm gonna do A', little more research, and I'm gonna, I'm gonna find that review.

That's all I'm gonna really say for now in terms of the finding of it. And then I'll take you to where 'I came, which is when 'I found the actual venue that this review was from. It is called Thrusters Lounge in San Diego, California. This is A' Yelp, one star review. Written by Jeff O.

[00:06:36] TREY GERRALD: Okay.

[00:06:38] CHELSEY DONN: This bar fills top shelf bottles with cheap alcohol.

'I ordered A' Casamigos neat, and was served A' cheap tequila from the Casamigos bottle. The bartender was A' total dick when 'I told him that it was not what 'I ordered Whack. So that's all we're going to hear from Jeff O.

[00:07:06] TREY GERRALD: All right. 'I have A'. Lot of thoughts here cuz you know, in my life I've been A' bartender before, it has never occurred to me to replace bottles. That is so smart. Okay, but

[00:07:22] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my God. Trey. 'I. Love that you just said that.

[00:07:24] TREY GERRALD: You know what's there for me

[00:07:25] CHELSEY DONN: So are you saying that you believe Jeff?

[00:07:29] TREY GERRALD: 'I don't believe Jeff 'I. Think Jeff would need to supply A' lot more supporting evidence than the fact that they can taste the difference from A' Casa Amigo's.

Neat. So if you got this tequila serve to you neat, that's gonna be two ounces. That is the proper legal serving of A'. Neat. So that's

[00:07:50] CHELSEY DONN: And there's no ice. There's nothing else. It's just straight tequila, two ounces. It's like A' big shot kind of.

[00:07:56] TREY GERRALD: And 'I get, yes you can taste the sort of difference, but like it's just such A' bold claim to make. And then Jeff also says that the bartender's A' dick.

So it's sort of, cuz 'I would imagine it's probably not the bartender that would be replacing the bottles with the more least expensive Like 'I would imagine that that would be like the company because who's actually profiting, it's not gonna be the bartender. It's gonna be whoever is ordering the bottles, which would, 'I would imagine, would be A' manager.

[00:08:25] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Guess so. But they're saying that the bartender was A' dick when they told them that this is not what they ordered. Wac. So 'I, 'I, 'I. Don't know if they're saying that like the bartender is necessarily the one that pulled this charade, but they're saying that they approached the bartender about it, I'm assuming, meaning that the bartender was like, no, it's not.

Go 'I.

[00:08:46] TREY GERRALD: Right. That sounds like two separate complaints.

[00:08:49] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. It is 'I. Think. 'I think that the first Complaint is that we didn't think the drink was right and the second Complaint, which is really A'. Complaint for the establishment, right?

[00:08:58] TREY GERRALD: Right. Because what do you think the bar, like what 'I mean? 'I guess. You would hope that the bartender would be like, Oh, oh, okay. Well let me, let me pour you another one like that. No, bartender's gonna react that way. They're gonna be like, what do you mean 'I literally just poured it.

[00:09:11] CHELSEY DONN: right.

[00:09:12] TREY GERRALD: A' cheap?

Like they're gonna be

[00:09:13] CHELSEY DONN: 'I think that that's the hard thing to decipher here because it's like, if we're to imagine that maybe Jeff got it wrong and it is really casamigos, then what is the bartender supposed to do at that point? And 'I guess, even if Jeff was right, you pr like you've been A' bartender before, you're not filling the bottles.

The bottles are there. When you get there, you do you, you might be doing inventory to say like, how much is left of A' bottle when you start 'I? Remember that from Mary Poppins? But like other than you sort of doing your general accounting of where you are in the beginning of your shift versus where you are in the end of your shift, you're not the one who's actually getting those bottles.

So like the bartender must think that this is Casamigos. Of course they're gonna react like, what do you want me to do about it? Because it does kind of seem like A' money grab in A' way. Like you're try, are you trying to get A' refund? Like what are you trying to do?

[00:10:09] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, it's like such an ex, like it's like an expose. Like you, if Jeff was to really prove this point, they would need hidden cameras. They would need an extended amount of time to show that it's the same bottle with the same dust on the side that like is continuously getting bigger. Like, like it's just like this.

It's such A' wild accusation.

[00:10:30] CHELSEY DONN: though it's obnoxious and we do kind of like hate it when reviewers go there, but even if they were like, 'I am A' tequila expert. 'I was A' trained, bartender and 'I know the difference between every tequila from the second 'I. Taste it, you know, just. Build yourself up in credibility, A' little bit because you're not giving us any credibility.

You just had to kill A' neat. And you're automatically going with the assumption that they switched it. 'I mean 'I Don't know. 'I don't know why. I'm not really trusting A' hundred percent what Jeff is saying,

[00:11:05] TREY GERRALD: well, you just said it. There's no supporting evidence here. There's

[00:11:07] CHELSEY DONN: guess there's no supporting evidence. But then at the same time, I'm like, well, what if they're right?

[00:11:11] TREY GERRALD: Then give us more information. Help us know that you're right. Otherwise, you're just saying the word wack.

[00:11:17] CHELSEY DONN: That's true.

[00:11:18] TREY GERRALD: Like that's not valuable to me. 'I can't tell if you're being truthful or shady. It sounds to me like you're being shady cuz you're saying they're lying to you.

The bartender's A' dick, which is like A' secondary Complaint has nothing to do with this wild accusation you're claiming and then you say whack. Now I'm like, how many have you drunk before you realized that this casamigos need is fake? Like I'm just sort of like, really not

[00:11:41] CHELSEY DONN: right. Like were you wasted? What happened?

[00:11:43] TREY GERRALD: this and I've never even considered.

Doing that. So 'I don't think this is typical,

[00:11:49] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. 'I was gonna say 'I. Don't think 'I would hope that this is, isn't something that's typical. It's not something that I've ever really heard of. 'I mean. I'm sure maybe it exists. 'I don't go to bars that much, but, and we're not really giving that much information about the bar. At the same time, 'I understand it's A' review and your review seems to be this accusation, but I'm not really getting.

Any information about like the ambiance or any of the other factors of this location as like A' review reader?

[00:12:18] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, there's nothing about thrusters at all. It's just an accusation.

[00:12:22] CHELSEY DONN: and it's also called thrusters, which makes me feel like this is not high brow.

[00:12:29] TREY GERRALD: No, 'I. It makes me think 'I thought 'I was gonna be like about with strippers or

[00:12:34] CHELSEY DONN: Same. Yeah. Like it just, it just seems like it's, it's like fratty or something like that. And 'I think that A', lot of people that are gonna go to A' Bar called thrusters aren't gonna be so concerned with A'. Casamigos

[00:12:48] TREY GERRALD: To me, 'I feel like they're probably gonna be getting beer,

[00:12:52] CHELSEY DONN: exactly. Like 'I feel like this is like A' beer bar. So 'I don't think that this is A' deal breaker, you know. In any way.

[00:12:59] TREY GERRALD: 'I think 'I can crown

[00:13:00] CHELSEY DONN: 'I can Crown 'I can crown Jeff o. Let's do it.

[00:13:04] TREY GERRALD: So ChelseyBD and 'I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards. In an effort to be fair and not influenced by one another, we will simultaneously reveal our writing.

[00:13:14] CHELSEY DONN: we go.

[00:13:14] VOICEOVER: The Queens are Tabulating

to A' school.

[00:13:22] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. I'm holding up one Crown Trey is holding up A' Half Crown Trey. You go first. Why A' Half Crown for Jeff O 'I.

[00:13:28] TREY GERRALD: I'm entertained by the prospect of A' Bar that would go to length these lengths to do such A' preposterous thing when literally your job is to sell alcohol 'I. It's literally never occurred to me as A' possible practice in the 37 years I've been live. So I'm entertained, but it. We just said it over and over, like, Jeff needs more supporting evidence.

There needs to be more details. There needs to, as you said, A', little bit of credibility on their side also. Like what? What Casamigos Like get real if you're, well, whatever. 'I have A'. Lot of opinions, but 'I 'I don't find this useful. There would be no impact except for 'I. Would maybe now always associate thrusters as are they being shady?

ChelseyBD. Why did you say A' whole half extra. Why'd you say one?

[00:14:15] CHELSEY DONN: 'I said one Cuz 'I do think maybe after reading this, regardless of whether or not 'I believe or 'I don't believe 'I might be more likely to get like A' beer or A' wine or you know, something else from this bar. 'I do think that is there. Like if there is some shadiness going on, maybe 'I don't wanna go top shelf.

'I. 'I, 'I. 'I really think that that's the only information here, and that's why 'I gave A' Crown 'I did think it was like 'I. Don't know. Somewhat entertaining, but just one crown, just one crown's worth of entertainment for Jeff o.

[00:14:46] VOICEOVER: There's A' reply.

[00:14:51] CHELSEY DONN: So this reply is written by Vinny c 'I. Forgot just at the top, and I'll, I'm gonna quickly just like read this. There's A', you know how it says like from the business and it talks about it. It says, meet the business owner, Zo and Nicholson. The bar is owned by two members of the award-winning high school, nineties Air Band, Downy Fresh.

So that's like who we're dealing with. All right.

[00:15:16] TREY GERRALD: they have A' song called Thruster or something?

[00:15:18] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Guess maybe 'I Don't know. This is written by Vinny c Zo and Nicholson, but the response is Vinny C. Okay, here we go. This is not A'. Direct response to Jeff. Rather, A' fictitious response to A' Make believe person named Fluff.

[00:15:37] TREY GERRALD: 'I know.

[00:15:38] CHELSEY DONN: off fluff.

You're A' giant lying pinata full of barf and turds. Fluff loves whacking the hell out of himself so he can pour his barf and lying turd garbage all over the readers of Yelp land fluff. We do not do what you accuse the bartender of doing. We are not going to compromise our alcoholic ethics for an extra what?

$12 on the back end. Fact is fluff. You got A' Casamigos. The dick bartender was wack because it was you. Who was the wack dick fluff. You were being A', huge. Barfy poop, whack dick, who was yelling A'. Dumb line. Stop yelping, just put down your pinata, stick fingers and go yelp the mirror, because as of now, That mirror is giving fluff.

One measly little complaining self-entitled star, but it's not too late to be better. Maybe it wasn't the tequila inside the casamigos that was fraudulent. Rather, the contents inside the fluff that needed some upgrading fluff. It's not true. What plumbers say, we literally don't need turd people. So good luck out there, suck less, and take that farty Jeff o Thank you for letting me use your comment section to write this Maple Believe response to nobody that actually exists.

Yelp took down my original response because it went viral, but they said 'I personally attacked Jeff. Yet Jeff calling my bartender A' Dick and lying about our tequila is totally cool with Yelp.

[00:17:33] TREY GERRALD: Hmm.

[00:17:36] CHELSEY DONN: Mm-hmm.

[00:17:37] TREY GERRALD: Okay. Well that final little asterisk conclusion, what totally changed my mind.

[00:17:44] CHELSEY DONN: Yes.

[00:17:45] TREY GERRALD: the whole fluff thing, the more you said the word fluff, it got funnier to me. But the whole turd poop, pinata fart, poop, like 'I 'I was like, this is A' little, like trying too hard to be funny. So then when 'I, he, I'm garnering here, that 'I guess it was originally re A' reply to Jeff.

So in order to skirt around it, that's why they went in hard with that stuff.

[00:18:09] CHELSEY DONN: Yes.

[00:18:10] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean. All right. So it did sort of 'I my major Complaint was like, they take the comedy route so hardcore that they don't, they spend so little time saying, this accusation is so absurd. For what? A' $12 like bonus in our back.

Like, that's so stupid. What are you talking about? 'I? Wish there was more, as Vinny points out about the alcoholic ethics, like that's an interesting phrase. 'I want to hear more. About what that means, but 'I don't know what's there for you.

[00:18:41] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Think Vinny C is like A' super frat boy. 'I think that like he fits within the mold of what 'I imagined. When 'I heard of A' Bar named Thrusters and the type of guy that would own this kind of bar 'I. Think normally 'I would say like, it's kind of annoying. It's interesting. Usually the reason why 'I brought this in was because usually we see.

These kind of creativity tactics in the review. This is the first time that I've ever seen A' reply to the review. That was way more interesting, colorful, divisive, whatever you wanna call it, than the review itself. Usually the response is very vanilla, you know, so sorry you had A' bad experience.

[00:19:26] TREY GERRALD: Being buttoned up and trying to be A' little professional

[00:19:28] CHELSEY DONN: that is not Vinny C, and there's A' part of me that wants to ding him for that.

And then there's another part of me that wants to say, Maybe this is Vinny C. Being Vinny C, and this is Thrusters. And if you're gonna read this reply and you're gonna have your panties in A' Curfuffle, then you probably shouldn't come. 'I feel like the, the like vibe of this is that if you come out with some like bs, you're gonna get roasted

[00:19:58] TREY GERRALD: Which 'I think is fair, and 'I also do appreciate that the response was to defend their employee. If the accusation is so false that then it's sort of like maybe you're the dick. Not my employee, like Get real and then 'I think the real win here for me in this reply is at the very end when Vizo points out, let's consider how someone is able to defame my business.

And that's okay by Yelp standards, but if 'I roast the person, that is inappropriate. Why is that double standard there? And maybe you could argue cuz it's A' business rather than A' person. But if you are putting this up, isn't it fair for A' rebuttal? And if it is A' bar called thrusters 'I, don't think they need to have the HR PR team of Chick-fil-A.

[00:20:54] CHELSEY DONN: Right. Certainly not 'I. Don't think any of us need that. Hr. Yeah. 'I mean 'I. Think so. 'I think it's hard because 'I do wonder what the vetting process is on Yelp. Like how are things dinged, you know,

[00:21:07] TREY GERRALD: Well, he said it went viral.

[00:21:09] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, 'I guess it did go viral. That's why

[00:21:11] TREY GERRALD: So then it probably became A' culture war where people were staunch on either two

[00:21:16] CHELSEY DONN: right? Either you're A'.

[00:21:17] TREY GERRALD: inappropriate.

[00:21:18] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. Are you A' Vinny C or are you A' Jeff o

[00:21:23] TREY GERRALD: But the Yelp comment is like, okay, so if Jeff has the free speech to leave this review, then shouldn't Zo have the free speech to respond without having to say fluff.

[00:21:34] CHELSEY DONN: right. Yeah. 'I mean 'I. 'I 'I. Don't know. 'I. Think it's interesting. I'm trying to think of what 'I think of Vinny as A' manager. Do you think that Vinny is like A' nice guy to the people that are working for him and he's just coming to the defense so hard against Jeff O in this circumstance, or we think Vinny's.

C might be A', little bit of A' jerk, like A', little bit different. Like you don't want to cross Vinny C or you'll get like attacked because again, just playing devil's advocate here, Jeff o's review was like pretty short, right? Like we called the bartender A' dick and we said we made A' A' claim and we said that it was whack, right?

That's really all we said. Vinny C came really

[00:22:22] TREY GERRALD: really hard.

Yeah, and maybe if it wasn't fluff, 'I would be like, whoa, this is A'. Little unbalanced. That's A'. Good point. ChelseyBD.

[00:22:30] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, because it's like, you know, we've had people that have responded in quote unquote colorful ways before and still managed to take the high road, which we really respect. Like you can really knock someone down, A', peg and make them seem irrelevant while at the same time making yourself sound great and also not punching down so much.

And 'I do think Vinny is skirting that line. 'I do think it's more acceptable in this. Setting. But 'I do wonder, you know, 'I don't wanna 'I, don't know that 'I wanna paint. Vinny C as an angel here 'I. Think Vinny C might have A'. Bit of A' temper.

[00:23:11] TREY GERRALD: Well 'I think that like the point of the reply is having an impact shift from the original post and 'I. Think for me, 'I wasn't buying Jeff to begin with

[00:23:23] CHELSEY DONN: You weren't right.

[00:23:25] TREY GERRALD: And 'I think that seeing this is thrusters, like 'I have A' visual of like the neon sign that's out front. They're probably

[00:23:32] CHELSEY DONN: humping, A' humping, humping, like neon with the legs moving or whatever.

[00:23:36] TREY GERRALD: the mud flap girl, like I'm sure their major seller is like Bud Light, like 'I have A' visual. So to me 'I think the impact is sort of like, okay, he is like got A' sense of humor about it. 'I also do appreciate the one sentiment of reality of like, what? What would be the benefit of us doing this?

Like, are you kidding? But 'I do also hear your point, like 'I do think maybe, maybe Vinny went A' little too far, but not in any way. It's like thrusters,

[00:24:04] CHELSEY DONN: then also, like Vinny said, and 'I have to say yes, like this did go viral. Whatever 'I founded in that forum. But there's 385 funny votes and 43 cool votes and 42 useful votes on this reply and. It does seem like Vinny is being honest about saying like, thanks for giving me the opportunity to like write this, like, you know, crazy review.

Right.

[00:24:32] TREY GERRALD: 'I. Think 'I can crown Vinny.

[00:24:35] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. 'I, think 'I can Crown Vinny too. 'I.

[00:24:37] VOICEOVER: The Queens are Tabulating

to the school.

[00:24:45] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, interesting. This is always so funny to me. I'm holding up four crowns. Trey is holding up three and A' half Trey. You go first. Why three? And A' half crowns. Vinny C.

[00:24:54] TREY GERRALD: 'I 'I. Think you've persuaded me. A' Little bit here. 'I. Do think like 'I put middle of the road only just because 'I feel like 'I do find the response appropriate to what I'm imagining A' bar that calls itself thrusters to be. It's like we're here to have fun. We're here to like relax and like drink and like.

Do whatever. So, like to me, I'm not that offended and 'I think the, uh, impact of the reply is sort of like, Yeah, the accusation is insane, which 'I felt to begin with. And it does make me think like, well, maybe I'll go and if 'I see Zo, like 'I feel like he's probably gonna be like, oh, hey, you know, he might call me A' faggot, but that's secondary.

Like 'I just 'I think it's like it's not that serious, like 'I. We're like, we're serving alcohol and we're not gonna like 'I, 'I. Don't know. Neither here nor there. It's opinion 'I think like is should you be more professional? Should you not? 'I, don't know. 'I think it's entertaining. 'I don't know. 'I think 'I would still go there.

Just to take A' picture in front of the thruster sign. Why did you say four 'I?

[00:25:53] CHELSEY DONN: 'I was also influenced by you, but 'I said four because 'I think it's A' funny review. It's super unique. I've never seen A' reply like this where we're sort of like, it's almost like if, if you're doing, um, like A' roast battle with somebody and then it's like, okay, 'I. You know, Vinny just mic dropped, right?

Like you came at them thinking that you're whack and your whatever was gonna really land. And Vinny C was like, I'm gonna flip it and reverse it and really send it back into your face. And 'I think that, that's interesting. 'I think some of the fears that 'I had about this not being professional. Are excusable within the setting and 'I think that most people are not gonna react to this necessarily.

Being like, what an asshole 'I think that it was really good that Vinny pointed out like, why are we allowed to say these things? But I'm not allowed to be honest. You know, that was an interesting perspective that 'I think we hadn't heard. So for that reason, four crowns for Venice.

[00:26:51] TREY GERRALD: that was funny. All right. Thank you, Yelp. Good job.

[00:26:55] VOICEOVER: There's A' reply.

[00:26:57] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, but wait. So 'I wanted to do that first because 'I wanted you to, 'I wanted you to have the experience of somebody going to the Yelp page today. 'I wanted you to experience what A' customer of thrusters would experience if they went to the Yelp page in this present moment and read this review.

Right. So that was why 'I started there. But now 'I just wanna go back and 'I do have the original reply that Jeff wrote that got taken down. Do we wanna hear it? Sorry, that Vinny wrote.

[00:27:32] TREY GERRALD: oh. 'I just assumed it was exactly everything but with fluff.

[00:27:36] CHELSEY DONN: Now we have the original review that Vinny C wrote that got taken down.

[00:27:42] TREY GERRALD: Oh, no.

[00:27:44] CHELSEY DONN: Jeff, first off, no one does what you're saying happened. Yeah, we replaced A', middle of the road tequila with A' lesser tequila bars. Don't actually do that. 'I made the same amount of money on either A' bottle of shit. 'I Sell you guys 'I.

Fact is Jeff, you got A' Casamigos and the bartender treated you like an idiot because you're A' dumb idiot that claimed A'. False thing. 'I. See you have three other one-star Yelp reviews. Clearly that is because you are A' complaining butthole person. Here's what I'm gonna do. I'm A' one-star. Yelp your mother.

Because she made Jeff the Yelp complaining fart guy, baby. luck out there in Yelp. One star cry, baby idiot. Butthole. Guyland. You suck. The world thinks you suck, Jeff. Yes. The entire world thinks Jeff sucks, like A' fart. However, farts are funny. Jeff just stinks. 'I guarantee that the last girl that had sex with you is currently at an A' podium right now.

'I knew 'I hit rack bottom when 'I woke up having sex with Jeff. The one star Yelp reviewer. Butthole fart face guy.

[00:28:53] TREY GERRALD: what?

[00:28:57] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah.

[00:28:59] TREY GERRALD: Okay. That is, that is not the fluff review. That is A'. Completely different reply.

[00:29:05] CHELSEY DONN: that's right.

[00:29:07] TREY GERRALD: Oh, 'I

[00:29:08] CHELSEY DONN: do you think about Vinny now?

[00:29:10] TREY GERRALD: feel very differently.

[00:29:11] CHELSEY DONN: That's right, me too.

[00:29:13] TREY GERRALD: Well, okay. Well, clearly Zo went A' little, like really went too far in that reply. And now that also makes me think maybe, maybe they do replace it since you're that angered by this and you did that much, much research,

[00:29:29] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. Why are you that like, Irritated by this and 'I understand why Yelp took this down. 'I feel like this is like borderline harassment, like saying that the entire world hates somebody and it's like you're really trolling here. This isn't just like A', little bit like let's make fun of fluff. This is really A' line.

[00:29:51] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, it feels much different than A' Roast. This feels like an annihilation, like it feels like you've lost the humor here cuz you're like, Going after the person, that last person that had sex with, like it's all A'. Little bit like what they were talking about, the tequila being

[00:30:05] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, and it was such A' short review. It wasn't like 'I can understand maybe going to town on somebody if they had written like A'. Huge long review about like your integrity and your business and how you never are honest about the liquor that you're like if they really went on and on and on and on and on and on.

But maybe, but like the original review was only like four sentences.

[00:30:26] TREY GERRALD: Right. Also the sentence about whatever shit 'I sell you guys or whatever. That was also like, wait, what?

[00:30:33] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. 'I mean he was being sarcastic,

[00:30:35] TREY GERRALD: feel playful. Like 'I don't think it was meant to be evil, but it, it did come across A' little bit like we're losing the narrative. Like stay fo Like what? Like, it, it is like really splintering off from the point.

So if I'm considering my original crowning for the edited reply where 'I really felt like, who cares? It's A' bar called Thrusters. This actually is like, 'I don't want to get this owner angry. Like, what if 'I

[00:31:02] CHELSEY DONN: Well, that's what I'm wondering, like is it this weird psychology where it's like, oh, 'I wanna make people not wanna write one star reviews? Because if they do, this is how I'm gonna reply. Because like we've read A' lot of one star reviews on this show Trey, and that even though we don't really love Jeff, like that's not the worst one star review we've ever read.

We've read. Some really damning reviews. Right. And this is like putting it out there sort of plainly, which 'I guess can be damning, but it's not like he said the bartender was A' dick, but that's like as bad as he got

[00:31:41] TREY GERRALD: Which like 'I didn't even say at the time, but like 'I don't even think that's that big of A'. That's not that negative. Like to say someone was A' Dick, you know, 'I, 'I don't know 'I. It does make me think that Zo could have used an edit or, or like someone else to sort of be like 'I. Uh, the approach is fun.

Let's stick with the fun approach, but let's, uh, take away the stuff about the mom and take the stuff away about like, everyone hates you and like the last person you had sex. Like all of that's A'. It does feel A' little extreme in relation to what the original review was. No wonder it went viral.

[00:32:16] CHELSEY DONN: totally. By the way, 'I just wanna give quick credit to sour beef hoop. Who posted this review on Reddit?

[00:32:25] TREY GERRALD: It is funny to me though that Vinny points out that like Casamigos is like A' very mid-level tequila. Like that is really funny. That's really funny to me. Okay, so like, should we crown this original reply?

[00:32:39] CHELSEY DONN: Yes. 'I. Think let's crown it.

[00:32:41] TREY GERRALD: Okay. 'I.

[00:32:41] VOICEOVER: The Queens are Tabulating

to A' school.

[00:32:49] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, I'm holding up one Crown Trey's holding up A' Half Crown. Why

[00:32:53] TREY GERRALD: 'I am just 'I. Don't know it. Just now this R, this just puts A' sour taste in my mouth like I'm sour beef hoop person here. Like it doesn't liken me to the business owner. It makes me think like, what the fuck? So 'I think it has A' negative impact and so therefore 'I can only do A' half crown. Cuz you're not helping the case here.

Like you've gone A'. Little extreme.

[00:33:16] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, you got off the rails.

[00:33:18] TREY GERRALD: Why did you say one?

[00:33:19] CHELSEY DONN: 'I said one. It did go viral. You know, people did read it. It, it like made some sort of

[00:33:25] TREY GERRALD: the wrong reasons.

[00:33:27] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Yeah, 'I guess for the wrong reasons. That's why I'm like, I'm 'I shouldn't maybe give that credit to Vinny, but like 'I, think Vinny like really just topped off here and lost almost all of their credibility.

'I think they really could have used A' friend in this moment, or maybe A' punching bag or something. 'I also think like Vinny's, like obsessed with farts and butt holes and like good for them, but like it was A' little bit redundant after A' while. And even for thrusters, 'I felt like, you know, Vinny took it too far.

So 'I gave A' Crown maybe more like A' half Crown, if I'm not factoring in the fact that people found this review. But no Buk, this was A' really like flip it in, reverse it kind of episode Trey.

[00:34:12] TREY GERRALD: This was interesting. I'm glad you found this on Reddit. Like that's an interesting thing, like we should consider that more in the

[00:34:17] CHELSEY DONN: 'I know 'I don't usually do it cuz I'm like, is it cheating? You know, 'I, but 'I. 'I wanna like really do the on the ground research for you. But also there's so many people on Reddit and 'I feel like as long as we're giving credit to those people who are sort of in our corner and trying to explore these funny reviews, 'I think it's, it's fun and interesting and thank you Sour beef hoop.

[00:34:36] TREY GERRALD: Yes, and thank you ChelseyBD. Great choice Thrusts

[00:34:40] CHELSEY DONN: thrusters. If we, if you're ever on the West Coast Trey, maybe we'll have to head over there and meet Vinny face-to-face. We could bring him A', whoopy cushion,

[00:34:47] TREY GERRALD: That's good. He would love that. 'I bet.

[00:34:50] CHELSEY DONN: right? All right. That was fun. 'I. Think we reached the most regal portion of our show, Trey that went by fast. Who are you inducting for?

[00:35:01] VOICEOVER: My, Royal, Highness.

[00:35:03] TREY GERRALD: All right, so ChelseyBD. 'I really want to shout out this product that I'm obsessed with. I'm wondering if you've ever, I'm sharing my screen so you can see it, but have you ever heard of

Fresh

[00:35:14] CHELSEY DONN: yes. 'I haven't, but I've used these kind of things before.

[00:35:18] TREY GERRALD: Okay, so the, so for the listener, if you're not on our Patreon, where you can watch our episodes, this, okay. These come in little three packs, they call them sachets, which 'I had to Google like what A' Satche is, and it's basically.

[00:35:33] CHELSEY DONN: satchel.

[00:35:34] TREY GERRALD: Well, it's like cloth that's filled with like herbs and, and seeds, lings and things.

So this isn't the true definition of A' Satche, but they call, so, okay, so they, these are like, my mom had them like when 'I was growing up and they are outrageously odor where like this one specifically is the white cotton. And so they're built to stick and like, Your linen closet and like in between the pillows of the bedding and your guest rooms, which 'I do because they are so strong that you can put them like in your sock drawer and stuff, and they really

[00:36:10] CHELSEY DONN: 'I was gonna say, 'I feel like 'I. Throw into my sock drawer,

[00:36:12] TREY GERRALD: Yes, but that's my like secret is 'I. Love to put it in my guest bed so that when my guests come like it smells like really fresh, clean linen. They're so overly potent, but like in the most delicious way possible. And 'I wanna shot them out because I'm obsessed with them. And 'I love them. And also they are distinct.

And the fact that they were the original scented envelope satche, and they use A', 30% recycled paper. All biodegradable, so 'I have to induct them for My, Royal Highness. This week, the fresh Scents, scented SATs, and my personal recommendation is the scent of white cotton.

[00:36:53] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Love that.
