Waldorf Salad, The Trippy Remix

Celery. Apples. Walnuts. Grapes. And mayonnaise!

Every episode of Fawlty Towers, the TV show that first aired in the 1970s about an English hotelier with an anger management problem, offers comedic scenes revolving around hospitality and food. But the famous "Waldorf Salad" episode is an especially entertaining glimpse at the restaurant's terrible food and service.

Above, enjoy a trippy remix of an American guest demanding his salad. And go here to see more of the episode (not remixed), including Basil Fawlty arguing pettily with a guest who thinks her prawns are off. It's a classic.
