    This Guy On TikTok Transformed His Dad Into The "Ratatouille" Food Critic And I Just Can't Stop Laughing

    Bon appétit.

    It takes a lot for me to laugh these days, so when I tell you that the following TikTok made me wheeze, you better trust that statement!

    The stars of this masterpiece are 21-year-old Joe Mele and his dad, Frank. They've spent the past couple months making hilarious videos together on TikTok, and Joe has received an influx of messages about who people think they resemble.

    "Someone sent me a picture of the food critic from Ratatouille and I printed out the picture and showed my parents and they were like, oh my goodness, it looks like him exactly," Joe told BuzzFeed.

    This food critic has a name, of course. It's Anton Ego!

    "He actually came up with the idea of the eye makeup and gelling his hair and the outfit," Joe said.

    "My content has always been comedy but I’ve been really focusing on inside things with your family and bonding ... and making people laugh during a scary time like this," Joe said.
