Man eats McDonald’s buried in a garden for 14 months

It’s certainly one way of avoiding the drive-thru queues.

Talk is relentless at the moment about the threats facing humanity (thanks to the actions of, er, humans) with worries ranging from climate change to poverty and Brexit to nuclear war.

The dooming predictions are so dire that protecting ourselves may be the only way of surviving the impending relentless numbness and torture. Thankfully, one man has showed us what post-apocalyptic living will be like.

Matt Nadin, from South Yorkshire (they’re tough folk up there – and, evidently, somewhat barmy), decided that he wanted an extra special present for his 40th birthday; not a Rolls Royce or a cruise around the world, because Matt decided he was simply going to treat himself with a McDonald’s – that had been buried in the ground for fourteen months.

The meal, consisting of a Big Mac, fries and a milkshake (they’re congealed enough when bought fresh, so after it had been clogged up with mud it must have been like trying to drink a brick), was dubbed the McDonald’s 365 Challenge and involved rather predictable amounts of mould and gagging. This is the sort of meal we’ll be enduring when we’re sheltering in our nuclear bunkers.

Another matter it showcases is the quality of McDonald’s meals; although the chips had turned green and the milkshake had transformed into what was essentially fruity acid, the burger meat retained a surprising likeness to its out-of-the-fryer form (aren’t chemicals wonderful things?)

Unlike challenges involving ice buckets or selfies, I can’t imagine that the McDonald’s 365 Challenge is going to be a copycat sensation anytime soon. Perhaps the video could be put to an educational use and broadcast in parliaments around the world to show politicians the future horrors of their actions. Alternatively, we could all just book some therapy sessions to try and wipe the visions of rotting food from our brains.

One thing I am now absolutely sure of is that being radiated in a nuclear explosion doesn’t seem so bad anymore.

Will you be taking on the McDonald’s 365 Challenge?

  • no, look. When they drop the Bomb, you want to go quickly. None of that post-apocalyptic zombie nonsense for me

    • Exactly right. Comfortable, a glass of brandy, and Nearer Still Nearer being played somewhere outside.

  • The vid is unavailable for me, and to be honest, I don't want to honour it with a view, but tell me. Was he violently ill?
