There’s a cloud over Flavortown.
Because behind the frosted tips, Von Zipper sunglasses and rock and roll exterior, maybe — just maybe— celebrity chef Guy Fieri is hiding a hole in his Donkey-sauced heart. A hole that can only be filled with hamburger grease and mayonnaise.
Exploding on the interwebs today is a horrifying video mashup of money shots from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives where Fieri shovels burgers, fried mystery nuggets, chicken wings, other food bombs into his pie hole for a full 3.5 minutes while Johnny Cash sings the “Please Kill Me Now” anthem, “Hurt”.
Not surprisingly, it’s painful to watch as Fieri goes for broke with a gaping maw that would make a great white shark jealous. Again. And again. And again. And again.
NOTE: The video has been removed pending a copyright claim. waa-waa-waa-waaaaaa.
If you can’t take the full video, make a special note at :14 when he two-fists a bite of sandwich and condiment bottle of hot sauce. Twice. An at :28 where he eats a hoagie python-style.
I think he hurt himself today.
After 24 seasons of martyring his arteries on DDD, he’s done his time in culinary purgatory, and you gotta give the Guy credit for sticking it out through ick and grim.
Like Man vs. Food’s Adam Richman, or maybe even Mother Theresa, he endures the pain for us. No matter how much it hurts.
