Joey Chestnut just added to his long list of reasons why he’s the most legendary dude on the planet.
We’re talking about a guy who shattered the hot dog eating contest record books by eating 75 in only ten minutes, just to shatter his own record by eating 76 last year.
Not to mention, the dude holds just about every food eating record imaginable in the United States.
It was once again that time, as the 2022 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest was held today, and Chestnut, who was on crutches, was ready to cake walk to yet another victory.
However, he was put to a halt on his 17th hot dog, when somebody in a Darth Vader suit cut him off at the table, wearing a sign that read “EXPOSE SMITHFIELD DEATHSTAR,” which is apparently an animal rights issue in Utah according to SBNation.
Instead of just continuing to go ham on some hot dogs, Chestnut put the protester in a chokehold and threw him to the side, as security dragged the person on stage.
Regardless of your stance, what else was the star hot dog eater gonna do? The protestor could’ve been a terrorist or something for heaven’s sake.
Of course, still went on to take home another W, as he obliterated the field by eating 66 hot dogs.
That move itself deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, but is now the time to start calling Chestnut the most dominant athlete in human history?
I think it is…
Joey Chestnut Win The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest To The Tune Of Johnny Cash’s “Hurt”
Joey Chestnut was once again crowned champion of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest this afternoon.
The man put down 66 hot dogs in 10 minutes last year, securing his 15th career Mustard Belt.
But that’s not why we’re here.
No, we’re here because once again, the internet remains undefeated in taking a simply disgusting display of human accomplishment and mashing it up with one of the greatest music artists to ever walk the face of the Earth.
I’m talking about Joey Chestnut’s record-setting hot dog performance set to the song “Hurt” by Johnny Cash. It’s painfully disgusting, yet hauntingly beautiful.
I mean, you feel the pain in every single bite…
“Hurt” was originally written by Trent Reznor of the band Nine Inch Nails, however Cash covered it shortly before his death in 2003.
After watching the video Reznor famously said “that song isn’t mine anymore.”
