The blooper reel for a commercial for Dysart’s Restaurant in Bangor, Maine, was uploaded to YouTube in 2012 and recently went viral after it resurfaced and was featured on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The video of an elderly couple sitting at a table with forkfuls of chicken pot pie currently has over three-million views, and it’s not hard to see why.

The gentleman in the video above, tasked with advertising the pot pie’s “buttery, flaky crust,” somehow gets his tongue tied every single time he tries to deliver the line. A buttery-flavored crust? A buttery, crispy crust? Nope, and the lady isn’t much better after she gives the line a shot after growing frustrated with her scene partner. It turns out the two are a real married couple named Jack and Sonja Palmer. The Bangor locals say they’ve had “all kinds of people come up to us and take pictures” since they achieved internet fame.
