A man buried a Big Mac meal in his friend’s garden and ate it more than a year later in a stomach-churning challenge that no one ever asked for.
Matt Nadin, 40, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, has always been proud of his ability to eat gone-off food without throwing up – but decided to push his ‘talent’ to the limit by doing the so-called ‘McDonald’s 365 challenge’ to celebrate his 40th birthday.
The dad-of-three first bought the fast food meal – consisting of a Big Mac, fries and chocolate milkshake – just before he turned 39 in November 2018.
He then dug a hole in his friend Andy Thompson’s backyard and buried the food in a Tupperware box.
The sales manager intended to dig it up in time for his 40th birthday in November 2019, but only found time to retrieve it recently – meaning it was 14 months old.
He and Andy then took it back to the McDonald’s restaurant where they originally purchased it, before Matt chowed down on the nauseating feast.
Disgusting footage posted to Matt and Andy’s YouTube channel Beeper Beef shows the prankster burping and gagging as he tries to swallow the meal.
It took 20 minutes overall for him to consume it overall, with the chips covered in blue mould, the meat from the Big Mac ‘hard’ and the chocolate milkshake looking ‘like dirt’.
However, Matt has insisted some of the food wasn’t as awful as he expected.
He said: ‘The chips were horrendous, there was just no moisture in them at all.
‘The burger actually wasn’t too bad. It was soggy underneath and the lettuce tasted gone off but the meat was just hard.
‘The milkshake had gone kind of fizzy and tasted weirdly like a fruit smoothie.
‘I have eaten some pretty weird things in my time and I remember seeing something where someone had preserved a McDonalds meal for years so I decided to take it a step further and eat it.
‘I’ve done weird food challenges since college just messing about showing off so I suppose that’s where it all started.
‘I have never been sick though. For some reason my stomach just seems to handle it.’
The YouTuber attempted to hand out some of the remaining 14-month-old chips to McDonald’s staff – predictably spurring some horrified looks.
He said: ‘I have always been a bit of a joker and I had noticed a couple of staff looking as I was eating so I couldn’t resist giving them the left over fries to see how they reacted.
‘He didn’t do anything though – just stared at them. I think he was in shock.’
