Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump describing the delicious food served at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co in Daytona Beach, Florida (SEE Coastal Media/ / June 15, 2011)

I've never been to a Bubba Gump Co. I've been reading some online reviews, and it sounds in general like Bubba Gump is better than people thought it was going to be. They have fun there.

Not everyone agrees; people seldom do.

We can only realy agree that Bubba's "shrimp" speech in Forrest Gump is one of the most excruciating sequences in the history of cinema.

Even worse, imitations of it.

The video here appears to be a locally produced promotional video for a new Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Daytona Beach, Fl. It's hard to tell whether the actor in the video (who is not Tom Hanks) was hired by the restaurant or just kind of showed up.
