People were on the fence about Patti Labelle's line of food products, but after a review from James Wright the pies started flying off the shelves.
That's right, James Wright caused quite a stir when he uploaded his now-viral video review of Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie last Wednesday. One was sold about every second over the weekend.
This is by far the funniest and most clever Youtube Food review I have ever seen in my life.
Wright was funny and descriptive throughout this unforgettable review of Patti Labelle's Sweet Potato Pies.
Even Patti, herself, caught wind of the review and called Wright.
The bad news is two million pounds of sweet potatoes, the amount necessary to restock Walmart shelves with the pie, isn’t easy to come by. “We swept everything we had right into the stores to supply the demand, including our Christmas volume, so they have everything we’ve got,” said Kerry Robinson, vice president for bakery and deli at Wal-Mart, to the New York Post.
Patti has a HIT on her hands. She may want to shoot James some free tickets to her next concert for the free promotion of her item. It was a game changer.
