Fast Food Lasagna. NSF watching after a meal, frankly.

Douchebag bacon fetishists waste enough calories to make a famine victime crime preceded by a trailer for a Serena Gomez film? That's the Western privilege trifecta right there.

I don't get it. It really wasn't funny, or shocking or... what was it supposed to be? I guess this is why I seldom click on YouTube links.

So can anyone tell me why these guys, who glory in being crude in every single way, swear like fuck as they're recording, then coyly ding out every curse in the final product? If you're going to fucking swear, keep the fucking swearing in.

This kind of thing always reminds me of a little kid trying to retell a joke that they didn't actually understand. All the wrong things are emphasized and the punchline is mangled, but they are so busy laughing at the joke themselves that they fail to notice their audience's befuddlement.

The bleep is always more amusing than the swear. I get the bleep.

I don't get this stupid disgusting ultra low brow cooking arms race meme.

The glimmer of usefulness for me in that 5:38 gone is having learned that McDonald's will sell you a liter of Big Mac sauce.

At some point in the future (I don't know how or when but I do know it, like I know the sun will rise in the east), having and sharing this piece of information will make me the hero of the day. Slo-mo high-fiving, carry-me-on-shoulders, tears-of-joy style hero.

I'll report back.

It's called "Special Sauce."

Jeez.....
posted by spilon at 11:58 AM on June 26, 2011


I take it the point of doing shots while eating it was to make absolutely sure they'd vomit afterwards.
posted by amy lecteur at 11:58 AM on June 26, 2011


munchingzombie: I imagine that was the effect of all the whiskey he consumed. Not all of it went into the sauce.

At some point I found these guys amusing, but that just looked disgusting. And not even in a funny, gross out sort of way.

Smirkette: at 60 minutes to make and $10 worth of ingredients to do it from scratch your way...

versus 10 minutes to drive through and pay $10, plus the freak-out factor of showing people a cup of Big Mac sauce, for my way...

I'm going to go my way.

Like I said, there'll be something... a teen scavenger hunt or a wily prank or a death-bed request or something, where nothing but a liter cup of original Special Sauce will do, and I will be there to save the day.

That's like someone mixing a vat of Kentucky Deluxe, Old Crow, Rebel Yell, Popov Vodka, Natural Light, Sanrico Rum (Silver), Carlo Rossi Sangria, Mad Dog 20/20 (all flavors), and like 5 pounds of nitrates, and then drinking giant frosted fearsome Germanic steins-full and slapping eachother's penises and testicles in camaraderie and sickly regret.

I think it's the hipster bacon meme taken to its logical extreme.

I didn't know that you can buy the Big Mac sauce separately - is this just a US thing?

Being from the UK, no-one I've consulted was even aware there was a Big-Mac sauce.

It's 'burger sauce', isn't it? I have a squeezy bottle of the stuff from Asda in the fridge and it's pretty similar.

I want to know what goes in Fillet o'fish sauce, though. It's not tartar, it's not mayonnaise, it's not creme fraiche, but it tastes like all three. Is it the cheese food slice underneath that somehow makes it all taste different?

There was a glimpse, just a hint of brilliance, there. But it was totally, foolishly, squandered.

Was the lasagna good? Could it have actually been GOOD? Make that thing for a big party and have people eat the damn thing with proper knives and forks and show unsuspecting partygoers surprised at how good it was -- there could have been a compelling video there.

"Look how hardcore we are! F*ck Y*eah! B*oze! WhOOOOOO!"

And then... no payoff. Just lame guys eating it with their hands.

When people ask me why Jackass is so good, I should just point them to this and say "this is what happens when idiots do idiocy. Jackass is what happens when idiot-geniuses do idiocy."

waste enough calories

I was less offended about the disrespect for food as I was by their way of talking to the staff.

That thing actually did look like a lasagna before they shoved into their faces by hand.

So that's something.

This is not a video from the US. These guys are from Canada. The big hint is that there probably aren't any fast-food drive-throughs in the US where they speak French.

I'm more offended that they're calling this a lasagna. Why, because there's cheese and tomato sauce? This is more of a twisted bastard of a casserole/hot dish.

I liked the part where he gave the Apple Pies to the kids. As asinine as this video/idea may be, the world would be a better place if people just gave each other pie all the time.

I see. I didn't catch it was actually French, they just sounded like non-native English speakers (most fast-food workers where I live, at least, are recent immigrants).

It's supposed to be funny. These guys have so many videos of them cooking such ridiculous stuff and then eating it. it's all for entertainment value, and I think it's working.

Jesus fucking christ what a bunch of haters. They're a couple of kids having fun and goofing around on youtube eating gross fattening food. Some people here are acting like they were personally bullied by them in high school or something.

They're a couple of kids having fun

I don't think they're kids. Young, maybe between 20-30, but not kids.

They're young adults with too much money to blow.

That being said, I'd eat that without the special sauce.

Let's acknowledge that there is much to be offended by in this clip--gluttony.waste, self indulgence, rudeness and obliviousness. There is a point where men (I use the word hesitantly) dressing like boys, behaving like boys and apparently thinking like boys just becomes very tiresome.

So I don't know where in Quebec these guys are, but watch enough of their videos and it's pretty obvious they're in Quebec, probably Montreal.

And I love these videos although what these guys do is horrifying. It's a train wreck I can't turn away from.

And yes, it's "special sauce" in Canada.

What bothers me the most, is that these guys while they aren't being jerks "per se", they're not very friendly either. Most of the staff they encounter are rather friendly (which is pretty rare), and these guys can't engage in some friendly banter.

No "Hello" when they make their order. They just vomit out "15 whatevers". No "please". No slowing down so that they're better understood. In fact, the guy does an eye-roll because someone thinks he said "2" instead of "15".

I have no idea why this bugs me, but there you go.

Going off-topic, but I also hate when I hold the door for someone, and they can't even acknowledge the fact with a smile a nod or a thank you.

But who knows, maybe these guys actually nice, but just lack social skills.

Wow I gotta get out of this thread.

But before I leave, so can I buy and own individuals such as these?

Is that legal? I mean, do regular laws apply in this situation?

mippy: “I see. I didn't catch it was actually French, they just sounded like non-native English speakers (most fast-food workers where I live, at least, are recent immigrants).”

Well, to be fair, I knew that going in. There was a huge controversy a few months back, because these Epic Meal Time guys went on a talk show in Quebec and did not speak French. This was a huge controversy because apparently in Quebec it is a huge controversy every time somebody has the unmitigated gall to speak any language that is not French in public.

I found the whole debacle enlightening, because it revealed what I've always suspected: that the Québécois are not offended or disgusted by bacon-wrapped everything or by drunken fits of inane gorging, but rather by people who don't speak French.

Even emergency road signs in Quebec are French only. So not only do they (the language police) dislike people who don't speak French, they are also hoping to kill them by making driving as unsafe as possible for them.
