Wipe Away Tears as You Watch Guy Fieri Eating to Johnny Cash's 'Hurt'

Guy Fieri recently revealed that beneath all that Donkey Sauce, Ed Hardy, and the protective layer of frosted tips, he's a person who has feelings, too. And now, a new video captures just how hard it must be to be the Mayor of Flavortown -- with clips of him stuffing his face to Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt."

Try not to feel an insane mix of emotions and hunger as Fieri literally squirts sauce into his mouth to lyrics like "I hurt myself today / To see if I still feel," and inhales burgers, sushi, and assorted meats as Cash sings, "I focus on the pain / The only thing that's real." 

Just last month, Fieri responded to his critics in an interview with Success magazine, saying he's surprised by the level of hate people seem to have for him. He also defended his signature frosted-tip hairstyle. 

“If I probably didn’t have tattoos, or if I probably didn’t bleach my hair, or if I probably didn’t wear blue jeans and a T-shirt to fancy things, if I didn’t do things that make me look like someone who’s whacked out of their mind, it’d probably be different," he told the magazine. "But then again, that’s how I wanna dress. And I like my tattoos. And I like my hair cut the way it is.” 

Damn right, Guy. You be you.
