Older fans who have played GTA: San Andreas might remember a mission where the player must drive the other members of the Grove Street Family to a Cluckin’ Bell drive through window to grab some grub. The reason such a mundane mission should be memorable is due to the obscene amount of food that Big Smoke orders.
Because fans on the internet are the way they are, someone went on and compiled what his order actually contained, since the dialogue only referred to item numbers on the menu. The extrapolation was based on the menus visible in San Andreas and in GTA IV, which were legible enough to make out what each number contains.
I’ll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.
The exact items in this massive meal were compiled by a fan and posted online, as seen in the image below. No small snack, this all includes five burgers, one of which is large, 6 packs of fries, one of which is also large, a pack of nuggets, a chicken wrap, 6 sodas, two of which are large, and finally a salad – because, you know, Big Smoke is paying attention to his healthy diet.
Of course, one thing led to another, and the inevitable result of the precise menu being posted online was someone recording themselves eating it in real life. Matt Stonie is a widely know competitive eater (you now know what your dream job is) who is a surprisingly thin and spindly guy. He runs a YouTube channel where he uploads food challenge videos which are oddly entertaining and relaxing to watch.
He complied Big Smoke’s order from a number of fast food chains, such as McDonald’s, Popeye’s and Wendy’s, among others. His version is almost a spitting image of what was described to be in the menu, with some minor alterations. Instead of nuggets, he got a box of fried chicken, and his “large” burger was just a combination of two regulars that he slapped together. Oh, and he skips the salad.
Even so, that is a massive meal. I’d barely be able to put down two burgers and a large pack of fries, but this guy shovels in all that food, which totals in 9050 calories, inside of 35 minutes and smiles at the end. When he stands up at the end of the video, the guy’s stomach is still flat too which I find baffling.
True, Big Smoke is said to have eaten the orders of Ryder, CJ and Sweet too, adding a further 2 burgers, 3 sodas, one salad and one chicken wrap to the mix. Of course, we’d never ask someone to subject themselves to such torture. But hey, if Matt put down this meal with such ease, it might not be that big of a stretch in the end.
We beg you, please don’t try this at home. The last thing Rockstar needs is people trying to get GTA banned on account of someone getting a heart attack.
