Eminem serves spaghetti at the opening of his mother’s spaghetti restaurant
Eminem surprised his “Stans” by stopping by the opening of his new Detroit-area restaurant, Mom’s Spaghetti.
On Wednesday (September 29), Em made an unexpected appearance at the restaurant and spent several minutes working in the window of his pasta store. While serving cartons of spaghetti to stunned customers, he also obligated many with selfie photos.
According to Detroit News yesterday, the 48-year-old rhymer also signed the take-out boxes for a few customers. “This has been my dream my whole life,” Erin Farrer told the newspaper. Em signed her container of mum’s spaghetti, took a selfie photo with her, and hugged her. “And I screamed my eyes,” Farrer added upon meeting his rap idol.
Of course, Mom’s Spaghetti is named after the Oscar winner 8 miles the track “Lose Yourself”, which features the vomit-related line, “Her palms are sweaty, her knees weak, her arms are heavy / There’s already vomit on her sweater, mom’s spaghetti.”
Last week, commercials for the new restaurant began airing on local Detroit television station WXYZ. The 30-second joke ad featured Slim Shady assembling boxes of spaghetti. The clip also showed off the dishes the restaurant will serve, including pasta, meatballs and the spaghetti sandwich.
Detroit News reported that there was also a merchandise store at the restaurant called “The Trailer”. The store offers unique products such as sports-related Eminem t-shirts, vinyl albums, tapes, hoodies and limited edition photo prints for sale. Plus, there’s a pair of extremely rare custom Eminem Air Jordan IV sneakers and a Slim Shady rhythm machine – unfortunately neither are for sale.
As for the taste of spaghetti? Die-hard Em fan Derek Yeutich gave him a boost. “It’s pretty good, I’d say. They know what they’re doing in there,” he told the newspaper.
