Watch: 'Foodfellas' Is Like 'Goodfellas' for the Fast-Food Industry

Watch: 'Foodfellas' Is Like 'Goodfellas' for the Fast-Food Industry

Sep 24, 2015

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, which is presumably why filmmaker Reuben Guberek created the 13-minute short film Foodfellas -- a Goodfellas parody that tracks the rise and fall of fast-food wise guys Ron the Don and his apprentice, the King of Burgers.

With high production values, plenty of nods to Scorsese's movie and a voiceover rich with lines like... "The money came pouring in like an extra large double diet soda," the short is amusing and inventive and chock-full of enough fast-food references to make you ponder grabbing a bacon cheeseburger for your next meal. 

Check it out below. 

Warning: This short film does not come with a side of fries.
