David Letterman Snacks on Cold Soup and Eats Stuff Off the Floor During Surprise Grocery Store Stint

The former 'Late Show with David Letterman' host visits Hy-Vee in Iowa to give 'back to the marketing community' by assisting two store's workers in everyday tasks.

AceShowbiz - David Letterman is following in the footsteps of Lana Del Rey by getting himself a real job. After the singer was spotted working shift at Waffle House, the comedian surprised everyone with his stint at a grocery store.

On Friday, July 21, the 76-year-old surprised shoppers at an Iowa location of the grocery store chain Hy-Vee as he was seen bagging groceries. In a video posted on his Instagram page on Sunday, he gave an inside look into his shift at the supermarket.

Recalling his past job at an "independent-owned" grocery store in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, he said, "And if I can give something back to the marketing community, I would like to do that. But I don't have all day, of course."

He began his shift by joining two workers and assisting them in everyday tasks such as arranging items on the shelves and cleaning up spills in the aisles. He couldn't resist the temptation to open a can of Campbell's soup and drink it straight from the container while helping employees straighten canned goods. "Whoa! Minestrone. Wow, that's good," he quipped before offering the can to one of his co-workers. "You want some? Go crazy," he asked the male employee, who obliged and took a sip.

The former late night talk show host then announced that celery is "absolutely free" for the day via the store's speaker system. He was also eating candy that spilled on the floor, saying, "This is Hy-Vee. Any other grocery store, I wouldn't eat stuff off the floor."

In addition to snacking on baked goods, he ended his "fantastic" Hy-Vee workday as a bag boy at checkout. "Man, I'm coming home with you," he joked upon noticing a customer's purchases include ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies.

David then met the Hy-Vee manager to review his performance. "I'm going to be honest with you, Dave," the manager said, before the funnyman interjected, "Well, you don't need to be honest with me, I'm a hundred [year's old]."

"Okay well you did fantastic," the manager said. Thanking the manager for the opportunity, he jested, "I hope you recover from this day."

The store posted on its Facebook page a photo of David's visit and wrote, "You never know who you'll bump into shopping the aisles at Hy-Vee. Thanks for stopping by, David Letterman!"

David was in town to attend a sporting event, the Hy-Vee IndyCar Race at the Iowa Speedway. He co-owns a car from Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team which participated in Sunday event.
