Teens in Japanese Cause Internet Buzz over McDonald’s French Fries

Posted on November 4, 2012

After a McDonald’s in Japan offered a price of US$1.90 for any size of their famous fries, one group of teens decided to take full advantage of it — placing 60 orders of McDonald’s large fries.

Yes, my friends — 60 orders!

They even posted a picture and tweeted about it.

(“Some of us are at the 2-floor McDonald’s in front of Okayama station, challenging ourselves to eat 60 large servings of fries! Come over everyone! And please re-tweet us!”)

The teens’ message was re-tweeted many times and fellow netizens reacted to the said tweet, which has since been removed.

“They’re just crazy people who want to stand out.”

“The way they’re eating them is disgusting. That’s at about the same level as chucking ramen on the floor and eating them.”

“Still, it’s not exactly forceful obstruction of business.”

The teenagers had to sit there for three hours to finish all the fries. I just hope that they would get some exercise after that. Just imagine how many calories they took in eating all those fries!

According to McDonald's website a large french fry is 500 calories. That means these teens consumed 30,000 calories in 3 hours. The article here doesn't say how many teens were there. But there would of had to of been a group of 15 teens to eat these fries for them to take in a estimated daily number of calories (2000).
