They say McDonald’s foods are indestructible. And now, we know it for sure.
This video of a Big Mac getting doused in molten copper will blow your mind … but not for the reason you think.
You may expect to see a burger shriveling under the hot weight of flaming metal. But instead, the thing remains as steady as the golden arches in a windstorm:
It’s important to note, as Snopes points out, that you’d likely see the same result if you poured molten copper on pretty much any burger, due to the scientific Leidenfrost effect.
That being said, a Big Mac still isn’t the best choice if you’re looking to get molten-hot abs. Just one burger has 40 percent of your recommended daily sodium intake, and the bun contains high fructose corn syrup (say WHAT?!), which can lead to blood sugar spikes and weight gain in large doses. (To be fair, regular sugar does basically the same thing.)
Um, we’ll make burgers at home, thanks … on a regular grill.
