Seriously, what is the Matter with this country?

Seriously what is the matter with this country? I just watched a video which literally made me sick to my stomach. Here it is:

This is a real ad for a real restaurant in Arizona. The ad mocks every single health risk of eating the Heart Attack Grill's lard soaked foods, by having a 575 pound, morbidly obese, young man scarf down it's gross fare while bragging about the weight he gained doing so.

But this spokeperson's story is not a joke. That young man is now DEAD at age 29. So, this chain essentially mocked a man who was EATING HIMSELF TO DEATH. Read about it here:

Here's what the Arizona Republic had to say about the restaurant:

Heart Attack Grill is an unabashedly unhealthy restaurant - the menu consists of huge burgers, milkshakes and fries cooked in lard - and having such a big man as a spokesman was part of its tongue in cheek "glorification of obesity."

Get that? The restaurant "glorified" obesity and the eating habits it takes to get that way.

Well, it spokesperson is now dead, most likely from the food he helped to push.

That's just sick.


  1. My son told me about this yesterday. I was hoping it was a spoof. So sorry it is not :(.

  2. That makes me sick. It's sad and seriously upsetting.
