Earlier this week, a friend of mine shared an article from Yahoo! about a McDonald’s Happy Meal hamburger that resisted decomposition for 6 months. We had a few laughs and questioned the validity of it especially McDonald’s response. This whirlwind conversation led to me wanting to try this at home. I guess it’s better than anything else you see or read on TV that shouldn’t be tried at home. What harm could a hamburger do sitting on my kitchen counter? Grow fuzz and mutate? We shall see.
I took my friend Gina Beckman with me to the Foothill Ranch McDonald’s yesterday around 5:30pm so we could film it live and prove it was actually bought and not staged at home with fake props. We got some weird looks while filming which were classic and the manager gave us a questioning look. Watch for updates as I photograph everyday and check out the video below.
If all goes well, I might try other food experiments. The Twinkie perhaps? Who knows?
