Nowadays, divorce became so easy to decide about, couples don’t try or give up quickly on their relation. So when you see an elderly couple who spent most of their lives together, you wish you can have such relation with someone who loves you, support you and accept you the way you are for this long time. John and Sonja Palmer have been married for an incredible 53 years. The couple is regular customers of Dysart’s restaurant in Hermon, Maine. The restaurant offered them to shoot a commercial for them, as the local dining spot was getting more and more popular. The end result was a lot of fun for all involved.
Dysart’s Truck Stop and Restaurant has been serving customers for a long time. It first opened in 1967 and is frequented by many people who go there for its authentic homestyle diner meals, big portions, and welcoming ambiance, reports Portland Press Herald.
It is known for its yummy food, particularly its famous chicken pot pie “baked in a buttery, flaky crust.” Unfortunately John really struggled to get this line right, and his wife was not amused at all. Her reaction was extremely comical.
Sonja at one point even claims the producers should have given her that line to say as John kept getting it wrong over and over again. So towards the end Sonja gives the line a go–and hilariously messes it up too! Their outtakes are definitely the funniest thing about the commercial, and I think anyone who sees it will think it was a success purely for the fact it didn’t go as planned.
