The new southern comfort trailer from former Congress pastry chef Erica Waksmunski opens with a serious sense of humor. Red Star Southern will open this Sunday, July 20 at 5 p.m. outside The Grackle. To celebrate, they've released an opening trailer (get it?). The video features Waksmunski staring deadpan at the camera, wearing a party hat.

Waksmunski previously told Eater the trailer's unofficial slogan is "Fried chicken because 'fuck it'," and the trailer previously featured a cartoon spokesman named "Ol' Shitter Jim." The menu includes the afore-mentioned fried chicken, plus pulled pork, biscuits and gravy, and a vegan beetloaf. Watch the opening trailer below.
