Good morning! How's your day going? Could be a little better, right? The Internet has provided just the thing to put a little more spring in your step. Eater uncovered the apparent restaurant trailer for a new Staten Island restaurant called Troy, where modern conveniences like refrigeration are eschewed for medieval preparations of "raw meat, live fish, and screamin' bird." But the details about the restaurant don't matter, since none of us will go there anyway. It's the restaurant's trailer that concerns us today, a video that has set the standard for all restaurant trailers going forward:

I'm a little skeptical that this is an actual place — according to its Facebook page, the restaurant is serving "ancient and contemporary food fusion restaurant, Polish, Greek food, Roman food, French fusion restaurant, Medieval era food," which seems pretty unbelievably muddled even for a medieval-themed restaurant on Staten Island — but there's an earnestness to the video that makes me want to believe. If this is a hoax, I salute the hoaxters.
