Intense love for Patti LaBelle and a webcam can get you a long way apparently - something the marketing team at Walmart didn't know about!
James Wright, a harmless YouTube pedestrian, posted a 3 minute video online of him eating the new range of Sweet Potato Pies from Walmart and the Internet went absolutely bonkers. See the review below for yourself and tell us you aren't sold!
Thanks to his slaying of Patti's songs, plus the fact James was clearly LIVING for the pie, these seemingly mundane products are now officially sold out from all Walmart chains, leaving them to restock the shelves as fast as possible.
Why is it taking them so long you ask? Well a company spokesperson from Walmart has stated exactly why in what we think is the funniest response to restocking issues there could possibly be - 'We need something like 2 million pounds of sweet potatoes, and that’s not something easy to get'.
You get your gig James, just makes sure you keep telling us what else feels like heaven to eat!
