Being a second year student in Ms. Polak’s Writers Seminar II class, I am used to talking about food. But when surfing YouTube last year, I came across a video that takes food and how one prepares it to a whole new level, specifically, the epic level. Now, many people have heard of Epic Meal Time, but I have become a new member to their website. For those of you who don’t know of Epic Meal Time, it is just about one of the nastiest things one can watch, but at the same time, makes your mouth water like you’ve just sat down at The Palm.
I am warning you right now, this isn’t your average serving of cheesy tots. When I say they take it to the next level, I mean they really make it epic. Take this Chili Four Loko, a beloved dish with a bacon and college kick to it. These men may seem like slobs, but they are actually geniuses. They have racked up more total views than Rebecca Black.
One day I hope to try out one of their recipes. I am currently training my digestive system with an extra meal of Saga a day. This group of guys take every single meal that real men love, and turn into a bacon fantasy. Past episodes include: Meatball Deathstar, Breakfast of Booze, and TurBacon Epic, a classic take on Thanksgiving dinner.
But seriously, what makes these guys so successful? I definitely think that they know their audience very well. They know all the people that follow them are some serious college eaters and drinkers, as well as bacon lovers (considering that every recipe calls for massive amounts of bacon). I think that with that, plus what they cook, produces a concoction full of fat, fun and fast food.
They make their episodes as epic as possible, including footage of actual people eating these ridiculous meals. We should show this to that blonde anti-fast food activist, or the blond bitch, as she is known around class. I wonder what her response would be…Id love to see her take a bite of the fast food lasagna.
