Nearly died laughing through the entire movie. Couple facts, most of it is truer than you'd imagine. The Benihana owner he was talking about that got
him in doodoo with the Swiss, because he was being investigated is Hiroaki Aoki is Steve Aoki's dad,
and there's a news article here
Also, Steve Madden did jail time over the incident, was forced out of CEO and Board positions so he was employed as a creative consultant after,
including during his time in jail @ 700k/year. The company in the film actually launched the IPO and it's a $30 stock now.
And also a look at how asinine a scheme like that can be and still have a major brand emerge from the dust.
