Leave it to the man to be the ultimate buzzkill.
A vigilant Reddit user recently posted an image of a towering 9-patty sandwich spotted at a Wendy’s in Brandon, a city in Manitoba, Canada. Huffpo set out to investigate this curiosity and found that the item originated from a fictional ad featured in Sports Illustrated nine years ago. Although the ad was meant to be a “tongue-in-cheek” play, customers requested the behemoth burger and the lovely employees at Wendy’s Brandon happily entertained the idea.
Thus, the 9-patty, 3000 calorie “T-Rex” burger was born and customers were able to purchase the item for $21.99.
Unfortunately, once the T-Rex burger made national news, upper management got a whiff of this brilliant idea and shut it down.
“For obvious reasons, Wendy’s of Brandon neither condones nor promotes the idea of anyone consuming a nine-patty hamburger in one sitting,” stated Barb Barker, an administrative assistant for the outlet.
Man, way to kill that delicious vibe.
