It could be called an epic episode, even for Epic Meal Time. In the group's latest YouTube video gone viral, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver makes a special appearance in which he's gagged, kidnapped, pummeled with bacon, candy and Jack Daniel's.
In homage to the chef's British roots, this week the Montreal-based food pornographers at Epic Meal Time created a leviathan fish and chip sandwich made with 50 Filet-O-Fish sandwiches from McDonald's, with the aim of making the healthy eating crusader eat the calorific sandwich in the end.
Some of the best one-liners from the uncharacteristically long, nine-minute video:
After gagging, kidnapping, force-feeding him candy and bacon, and stuffing him in the fridge, an irate Oliver shouts, "Who put you up to this? Is it Gordon Ramsay? You fat Canadian a**holes, you're going to pay for this."
When Epic Meal Time host Harley Morenstein is at the McDonald's drive-thru and orders a few double cheeseburgers, McRib sandwiches, oh, and 50 Filet-O-Fishes, the worker stops and says:
"Really?... I thought you were just playing."
Meanwhile, Oliver takes a back-of-fridge-seat to the star of the show, a sandwich that clocks in at a whopping 59,144 calories and 2,840 g of fat.
After creating the dough for a pair of buns which are then stuffed with rows of Filet-O-Fish sandwiches and bacon, the remaining fish patties are mashed together with fries to create one giant fish patty.
The sandwich-filled buns are then used to bookend the patty, which is topped with slices of processed cheese, tartar sauce, and - of course - slices of bacon.
Epic Meal Time enjoys a cult-like following on YouTube for building obscene, leviathan creations out of bacon and junk food.
Within the span of about 24 hours since being uploaded January 22, 12 pm GMT, the video has gone viral, receiving about 296, 250 hits.
