I'm siding with Ramsey. What twat orders short order food at a place like that. Plus what did the rich sycophants expect walking up there, for Gordon to stop everything and give them a guided tour? Compliment the chef through the waiter. Customers can be idiots.
Sure, Vic Reeves was trying to provoke a reaction. But you know how Gordon could have come out completely on top? By making some superior fried eggs, maybe served with a complimentary side of something fancy. It's not like fried eggs were an absurdly complicated thing that would tax the kitchen staff.
And once in a while, it is entirely possible that a customer genuinely wants something simple, perhaps their innards are queasy and they need something that's easy to work with.
Gordon Ramsay is a far better cook than he is a restaurateur.

It was weird... I read "sycophantic" and me brain thought it was related to vasovagal syncope. That would at least explain the falling.

Fuck that guy. I don't care if he's trying to be funny. He comes across as a human version of the cartoon of Karl Pilkington. Is he trying to outKarl Karl Pilkington?
Seriously, I am not kidding when I say I would let lemmings bite me and possibly give me rabies to taste a sample of Gordon Ramsay's cooking. Here is a sampling from that menu:
Delicate tartlet of shaved fennel radishes,
grilled Piquillo pepper, quails egg, rocket and basil
Smoked potato and poached egg ravioli with lightly roasted garlic
emulsion, peas, and broad beans
Delicate tartlet of confit salmon,

quail’s egg, rocket and basil
Lobster, courgette and herb tortellini
broad beans, tomato and lobster consommé
Globe artichoke ‘à la barigoule’
with smoked pork belly and summer vegetables
Miso glazed cod
black quinoa, squid, grilled Shiitake mushrooms
and lapsang souchong broth
Roasted rabbit loin with Bayonne ham,
salted baked turnips, toasted hazelnuts
and pickled mustard seed
Herdwick mutton cooked over charcoal

smoked aubergine purée and mint
Banana parfait, peanut butter mousse

Selection of cheeses from the trolley
Pressed foie gras

If I ever get to go to this restaurant it will be the happiest day of my life. FUCK THIS STUPID GUY.

The moment I saw "Hell's Kitchen" I was thoroughly disappointed. From the fact that there was no censorship of profanity, I assumed this was a candid trolling of Mr. Ramsay, which I would pay good money to see.
Speaking of which, why was none of the profanity censored? Does the U.K.'s not have their own version of the FCC?
Yes and no. Most of their media is controlled by the state, which means there's a lot of censorship (both subtle and explicit) when it comes to political stuff, as well as censorship of views the current ruling party finds distasteful (such as Tories going after attacks on the Church of England or Labour going after attacks on Muslims), but it used to be pretty relaxed so far as sex and profanity on telly were concerned. I don't know if they're still doing this, but I remember back when I was living there, Channel 4'd show Jenna Jameson bare-nipple topless at 9:00 on a school night. She'd be shaking her tits and swearing up a storm and then right after Michael Moore would come on and tell Americans to go fuck themselves. My grandpa loved that.
I wouldn't be surprised if all that's gone out the window now, though. It seems like every year since at least 9/11, Britain gets shittier and shittier. Now it's all ASBOs and hate speech and CCTV, so fuck if I know. Pissing off Gordon Ramsey's probably still OK.

For the 3:40 eye-roll from his chick/date/wife/whatever. I imagine he would not STFU trying to recover from the backfire of his shitty joke and completely ruining what should have been a really great experience.

I would go to Gordon Ramsey's restaurant, order Pad Thai, then send it back.

Eh, he realised the guy was trolling and called him out on it in his normal interpersonal style.
it's a fun video but come on, what did you expect?
