Sriracha – The Movie

So, unless you’re brand new to this blog, you probably know that I have a deep, serious, soul-mate connection to my beloved…Sriracha sauce. Especially on my favorite breakfast, Sriracha Bacon Pancake Wraps:

Last night, (actually very early this morning) once again in the grip of my old friend insomnia, I was perusing movies on my Amazon Prime account, and stumbled across this… (Watch it below).

Sriracha Movie

I won’t bog you down with a lot of my own thoughts on the movie, but I just have to tell you a couple of things. First…love Sriracha or hate it…this is a just plainĀ  awesome movie. Great filming, great writing, great pace (and just 33 minutes or so), I really, really enjoyed it.

Second, it’s not just a long commercial for a hot sauce.

The story of the amazing man who started and owns the company is one of the great “coming to America” success stories (which I’m a sucker for) and it’s told with wit, and a humbleness that belies the fact that the guy is like a gazillionaire now. :)

Oh, and here’s the link to the movie on Amazon (if you want it without the director’s commentary). It’s free for Prime members, or you can buy it for $1.99.
