It's huge with all the hip teens, but McDonald's doesn't have the best reputation among high-end food nerds. Suspecting that even those guys are secretly lovin' it, two Dutch dudes decided to con a bunch of pros at a food convention in Houten into eating some burger bites. They told everyone the samples were from their new organic restaurant, and sure enough, the guinea pigs took the bait. One lady even praised the "sweet tomatoes"! Turn the English captions on and watch this fascinating psychological study unfold above.
