Cheers gets a ‘Bar Rescue’ from Jon Taffer in hilarious new video

Shut it down, Sam!


Cheers may be the bar where everybody knows your name, but if Jon Taffer of Spike TV’s Bar Rescue ever stopped by for a drink, he’d likely have more than a few concerns.

That’s the premise of an incredibly entertaining new video by comedian Robert Dean. For those unfamiliar with Bar Rescue, Taffer spends the first half of the show watching a dysfunctional bar operate on a hidden camera in his car before jumping in to turn the business around. This time, however, the brainless bar employees are Woody Harrelson, Ted Danson, and other stars of the popular 1980s NBC sitcom.


Watching Taffer grow increasingly agitated by the antics of Sam, Diane, Norm, Cliff, and the rest of the gang is comedy gold.


Even the perpetually aggravated Taffer appreciated the joke, posting a link to the video on Twitter.
