So, in case you hadn't heard, Denny's has a whole menu of special items that tie in to the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, including everything from Bilbo's Berry Smoothie to something called a "Hobbit Hole Breakfast." If that wasn't strange enough for you, a competitive eater just decided to eat the whole menu in one sitting, and much like a dwarf facing down a dragon, he made it out alive.
Jamie "The Bear" McDonald, who has a habit of posting videos of all his food challenges to his YouTube account, decided it would be good for his competitive eating career if he sat down at his local Denny's with all 10 items from America's Diner's Hobbit menu and ate every single one of them as fast as he could. In the video below you will see McDonald scarf everything from Radagast's Red Velvet Pancake Puppies to the Ring Burger (get it?) to the Lone-Lands Campfire Cookie Milk Shake, which he downs in less than a minute.
Thankfully, the video is time-lapse, so you can watch the whole meal unfold in a little more than four minutes. But even with the time lapse, McDonald is fast. He eats everything on the table in a bit less than 20 minutes, and he's got a timer over his shoulder the whole time to prove it.
Check out the video below. We're not sure if this was done out of fandom, hunger or just a desire to show off his digestive prowess for the Internet (yeah, probably that one.), but we applaud McDonald's warrior spirit. Warning: this video might cause you to go into a diabetic coma.
