The ‘Candid’ Alligator in the Bathroom at Katz’s Deli
There was once a time when Katz’s Deli found itself smiling on “Candid Camera.”
The show recently dusted off an old clip starring Katz’s Deli, described as a “landmark eatery in New York City; always crowded and always very good.”
During the five-minute throwback segment, posted on YouTube this week, a fake janitor tricks patrons into waiting for the bathroom due to something “stuck” in the plumbing. Then a man emerges holding a baby alligator.
The footage shows a nice exterior shot of Katz’s, as well as the rear dining room. The exact date of the shot is unclear.
