Unless you got your stomach removed in a freak liquid nitrogen accident, you'll probably agree that eating is one of the greatest experiences life has to offer. Still, it takes a certain kind of admirable madness to look at a giant pile of food and think "yeah, I can eat that."

Youtuber/competitive eater/all-around superhuman Matt Stonie gave new meaning to the term "fast food" (ahahahaha) by taking on a seemingly impossible challenge in his latest video: consume 25 McDonald's Big Macs, in under one hour.

As Stonie points out in his video, 25 Big Macs equates to 11lbs, 13,250 calories, and a $120 charge on his credit card. Not for the faint of heart/wallet.

Given that he defeated reigning champ Joey Chestnut at this years Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, it's no surprise that Stonie managed to finish all 25 burgers within the time allotted. What is surprising, however, is that he absolutely CRUSHED the record, spending less than a minute per Big Mac -- he even scooped up the leftover lettuce and ate that, too.
