Proof That This Dude Can Eat A Hot Dog Faster Than Anyone

Move over Kobayashi. Take a seat Matt Stonie. Joey Chestnut, who? Get ready to meet the king of hot dog eating. Or shooting, as he describes it. Trust me, you’ve never seen anything like this before.

It’s been said that there are strange things on the internet. Very strange things. However, this video turns the word “strange”  into a hot dog, then a dude wearing a red bandana and sunglasses orally vacuums the hot dog into his body, only to spit it back out seconds later. Yes, it’s that weird.

You probably were not ready for that. If you’ve stopped laughing by now, we can resume our breakdown of this craziness.

The man claims he is the world’s fastest hot dog shooter — insinuating he’s done this before. Secondly, the vacuum sound he makes as he inhales the raw dogs back into his esophagus is almost mechanic. It’s unclear why he attempts this “trick” but, it doesn’t seem to bother the woman dressed in black who is on a cell phone behind him.

“World’s fastest hot dog shooter — in the Northwest — I-I-I-I’ve never seen anyone be able to do this. I can do it quick.”

*INHALES ONE RAW HOT DOG*

“I’m just sayin…'”

If you notice, he’s swinging his arms around so loosely, a single raw hot dog is actually thrown out of the package.

“We’re goin’ viral with this one!” – Self-proclaimed world’s fastest hot dog shooting man.

The video, posted by YouTube account FunnyNewsBloopers, slows down at one point to capture the man wearing the red bandana vacuum down 5 consecutive hot dogs. It’s in slow motion, but it can’t take more than 10 seconds.

Although it’s quite a talent, someone should check his locker and pockets for performance enhancing drugs.

Watch Takeru Kobayashi Devour 12 Hot Dogs in 60 Seconds [Video]

Ok. So I watched this while I was eating my lunch. At first, I naively thought that watching a dude go ham on slimy hot dogs dunked in water pitchers IN SLOW MOTION wouldn’t bother me in the slightest. Well, I was kind of wrong.

As I gazed at Takeru Kobayashi on my glowing computer screen, I was both in utter disgust and awe of his superhuman powers. This guy doesn’t eat, he inhales. Judging from the mixed reactions of the audience in the video, I’m guessing that most of them felt the same.

The clip was taken at the Art Fag City Wienerfest and Fundraiser in New York. Kobayashi was given the challenge of consuming 12 hot dogs (bun and all) in 60 seconds. Being the Guinness Record-holder he is, the wiener enthusiast completed the task within the allotted time period and was greeted by an onslaught of camera flashes and gasps.

As ANIMAL so eloquently put it, “It’s all so beautiful.”

Japanese Professional Eating Legend Downs a 12 Incher

Fresh off his record performance in Philadelphia, where he ate 337 chicken wings in a half-hour, competitive eating legend Takeru Kobayashi of Japan was at it again, this time downing a whole 12-inch pizza in 1:09.36 on Feb. 12.

Kobayashi, in Tokyo, smashed the former record of 1:45.37 set by New Zealand’s Josh Anderson in 2008.

This was Kobayashi’s second attempt at the pizza record as he came up short in 2010 with a time of 2:04.

Adding to his resume of six Guinness World Records, the “Tsunami” has been on a tear so far this year with not only this pizza record, but the wing record set Feb. 3, and the record for 14 Twinkies in one minute set Jan.23 on the somehow-not-canceled Wendy Williams show.

Kobayashi made a name for himself by winning six consecutive Nathan’s Famous hot dog competitions before being taken down in 2007 by his arch-nemesis Joey Chestnut of the U.S. in 2007.

The feat is impressive, but I’d like to see competitive eater Pat Bertoletti, the guy in the video below take a shot at the official 12-inch pizza record.

Kobayashi Eats Over 8 lbs of Turkey in 10 Minutes [VIDEO]

Oh my, it seems that this eating champ is at it again. This time Japanese competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi takes on a different slice of Americana: the Thanksgiving turkey. What’s amazing here is that this formidable competitive eater manages to wolf down over 8 lbs of turkey inside of 10 minutes! That’s slightly above the average weight of a newborn baby! I think it bears repeating that this man was able to eat an entire newborn baby’s weight in turkey in under 10 minutes. I’m getting a belly ache just trying to wrap my head around that concept! Anyhow, here’s the video of how it all went down:
