Everyone's had a bad experience in a restaurant. Maybe you ordered eggs over easy and the waitress brought you strawberry pancakes, or maybe the steak was fantastic but the bathrooms were a terror to behold. Many people take to services like Yelp to express these woes, and now a new YouTube collection called "Real Actors Read Yelp Reviews" has arrived to bring them to life.

The first video in the collection features actor Chris Kipiniak's heart-wrenching rendition of Yelp user Dan B.'s tragic experience with the Stratford Diner, complete with real tears. A second video was released today, featuring actress Therese Plummer, who uses her fantastic acting skills to tell the graphic story of Indian cuisine that had a powerful impact on reviewer Nathan A.'s bowels. There are only two videos in the series so far, but we can't wait to see more of these (overly) dramatic interpretations.
