Adam Sandler Reacts to Viral Video of Himself Getting Put on Waitlist at IHOP

NBC 10 Philadelphia 04 May, 2021 - 02:20am

Adam Sandler is sharing his thoughts for the first time about the viral video that showed the star acting like a grown-up when his trip to IHOP wasn't meant to be.

After 17-year-old hostess Dayanna Rodas posted footage last month of herself telling the 54-year-old "Grown Ups" star and his daughter that the restaurant had a 30-minute wait, leading them to walk out, Sandler addressed the situation via Twitter on Monday.

"For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn't apply to the milkshakes," he quipped.

Leave it to Sandler to not only use his signature wit to make it clear there were no hard feelings, but to also compliment the employee by squeezing the word "nice" in there.

Plus, his self-deprecating message poked fun at his own dietary habits while praising the establishment's treats. In other words, it was quite the perfect response, if we do say so ourselves.

Pleaseee come back #comedy #fyp #foryou #viral #adamsandler

In her initial TikTok post on April 25, Rodas appeared with a clown face as she shared security-camera footage from the IHOP in Manhasset, Long Island, showing her brief exchange with Sandler, who she admitted she did not recognize.

"Pleaseee come back," she wrote. "Not realizing its Adam Sandler and telling him its a 30min wait and him ofc leaving bc hes not going to wait 30mins for IHOP."

A few days later, she shared a follow-up post to explain why she didn't recognize the world-famous comedic actor.

"It's because he had a big beard, and I've never seen Adam Sandler with a beard," she said. "And the mask didn't help."

After all this, it's nice to see that Sandler is such a good sport, and that if a restaurant tells him he has to wait, he's willing to, well, just go with it.

Adam Sandler's Response To That Viral IHOP TikTok Is Perfect, Much Like The Man Himself

“Not realising it’s Adam Sandler and telling him it’s a 30 min wait and him [of course] leaving because he’s not going to wait 30 mins for IHOP,” the TikToker, IHOP waiter Dayanna Rodas, wrote at the time.

Sandler’s version of events recalls things a little different. As in, it supposedly involves a craving for bottomless milkshakes.

For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn’t apply to the milkshakes.

Hmm. Upon second read, it does kind of sound like an Adam Sandler-esque dad joke as opposed to a legit explanation.

Who has strong enough guts to consume bottomless milkshakes? Nobody, probably.

It seems this supposed clarification has raised far more questions than it answers.

According to the replies on Twitter, perhaps the biggest takeaway from this whole incident is that Adam Sandler’s getups may be casual but they’re also so recognisable that most people should be able to spot the man, with or without a face mask.

She shoulda recognized Adam, the drip was a clear give-away ????

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to self-induce a fever dream about Adam Sandler spiraling into an Uncut Gems-style fit of rage over not being able to get unlimited milkshakes.

Adam, if you’re reading this, boy do I have a pitch for you.
