Watch This Piece Of Sushi Suddenly Come To Life, Shocking Diners

One of our biggest fears eating raw food from a restaurant is that it’s so raw, there’s life left inside. Ever since we saw that footage of an eel coming to life, we now have to take a beat when we’re about to go in on some “fresh” seafood.

Imagine the surprise of these diners when they discovered their sushi was still alive.

SoraNews reports that patrons of a Sushiro, a conveyor belt sushi location in Japan, were shocked to find that one of their pieces of hokkigai (surf clam) sushi was still wiggling around. You can see in here in the video exactly how fresh their food was.

 

What’s ironic is this particular chain is known for their inexpensive sushi — leading customers to occasionally complain about the quality of the seafood.

The viral video garnered more than four million views, sparking up a discussion on whether the food was actually fresh or if the movement was simply a failure to follow proper sushi preparation techniques resulting in reactions from surviving nerves.

Now, unless you’re Marc Singer’s The Beastmaster, there really isn’t any way to tell for sure. The diner who posted the video did, however, eat the sushi and claimed it was delicious. Bold move.

Watching This Clam Dig Through Sand Is Quite Disturbing

I had no idea that clams could move like that until I saw this video.

The Weather Channel uploaded a video to Facebook that shows a bizarre scene where a single clam burrowing itself into the wet sand of a beach on the north coast of Oregon. I mean, we’ve seen clams come up out of the sand before, but not going deep underground the way this one did.

It turns out that certain types of burrowing clams are able to generate quicksand-like conditions beneath them to pull themselves underground at a speedy rate, able to travel two and a half feet deep in just a couple of minutes. That’s quite impressive for an animal that you would typically think to be for the most part immobile.

What’s weird about this particular burrowing bivalve video though is just all the sounds and actions that this clam has going on. I mean, it looks like this mollusk is breathing harder than me after running a quarter mile, and it’s attacking the ground with a pulsating motion that’s kinda weird, to be honest.

That’s not even factoring in the tremendous spout of wet sand that jettisons violently from it.

I’m questioning my choice of clam chowder for lunch now after seeing this, that’s for sure.
