Chompie's Lou & Lovey Videos Are Like Napoleon Dynamite, But With a Wolf Room, Senior Bling, and a Rockin' 'Stache

Sometimes the internet takes a break from its usual offering of ridiculous

celebrity gossip,

people attempting to



angry cats

to bring us something truly


This week, Chompie's, the New York-style deli chain operating in the Valley since 1979, released two videos of its founders, Lou and Lovey Borenstein, speaking about how they came to Phoenix and how they've stayed together.

Charming, funny, and thoughtfully quirky, the videos are skillfully done with the camera work reminiscent of Napoleon Dynamite. And, if by the end of watching them, you don't want more of the wolf room, are envious of the Neil Diamond poster on the refrigerator, or have much respect for Lou's through-the-years rockin' 'stache and bling, then you, my friend, may be in need of a Jewish slider or two.

See the second video after the jump.
