McWhertor vs. KFC

Michael McWhertor fights the good fight so we don't have to.

The Giant Bomb staff would like to officially salute Kotaku's Michael McWhertor for trying the big, awful-looking Guitar Hero-themed KFC meal so that we don't have to.

It looks like paying $7.99 to be kicked in the stomach until you cough up blood. It makes the KFC Famous Bowl look dainty and dignified by comparison. Thankfully, we will never have to know for ourselves. Instead we can continue staring down the barrel of a Pizza Hut Macaroni & Cheese With Bacon "pasta" thing, which isn't game-related unless you consider stunt eating to be a game.

For the record, stunt eating is not a game.

Rated T for Terrifying

Does it come witha  tiny miniature guitar or something?

Looks delicious, I'll be sure to get one this week.

I don't give a shit what McWhertor says. I still want that. I realize that its about the most unhealthy thing you could possibly eat but life is too short to count calories. Well, I guess, not counting calories would make it even shorter....Oh, well. Fuck you guys. It looks awesome.

I doubt the girl on the box ate much of that :[

7.99 seems fair to me. Shame it lacks campy Burger-King-like games that had achievement points.

That's alot of good food for only like $8.00. And just for the record, I love those famous bowls.

American KFC sure is weird...in the more deadly way

I think I have lived in the south for too long. Aside from the odd inclusion of a sandwich, the rest of that looks like a pretty standard chicken finger plate, of course served with sweet tea.

Mmmm....chicken.

English, the girl on the box hasn't ate anything, EVER, BECAUSE SHE'S MADE OF POLYGONS!!!

me and my roommates walked over to KFC last night to have it. The actual amount of food in the box looks underwhelming in comparison to the pictures though I was the only one of the three to actually finish it...or not feel sick to my stomach. The box has a $5 coupon for Guitar Hero World Tour on the back and one of my roommates won a "small potato wedge" with his meal.

Marketing people scare me!

That thing looks like a beast made up of deep fried batter and random chicken parts.....delicious!

Hadn't even heard of this.... is this a west coast only thing? We have KFC here in Pittsburgh yea, but haven't seen anything about this... what is in it exactly?

Us Americans sure do love our greasy platefuls of poison.

You guys are probably better off without the 7 billion calories.

Ugh, KFC...

Posted by Gregomasta

I'd totally max that, especially after pot, but before guitar hero.

I'm with you some of you, I like KFC. 3 strips meal dipped in honey bbq or buffalo is awesome! Oh yeah with mac n cheese and mash potatoes! I'll try this Gutair  Hero meal....it's alot of food though.

I thought they were being a bit harsh on this one but to be fair the chicken from the KFCs I've eaten at has never let out "a stream of white hot grease". McWhertor really went above and beyond the call of duty on this one, now I'm just waiting for Burger King to bring out their Rock Band 2 Whopper Meal.

One of my pet peeves is how whenever the topic of fast food is brought up on the internet, 95% of the people commenting on it do nothing but whine and moan about how unhealthy it is. McWhertor is no different. Complain about calories and fat. Well no shit Sherlock, it's fast food.

I'm proud to say I will be testing this fine meal tonight. My g/f is excited/scared to see this fast food monster meal gone wrong.

And it's really not that bad for you. There is a thickburger at Hardee's that ALONE has more calories then this entire meal - and why he chose baked beans as his side is beyond me, could at least choose a veggie like green beans (what I'll be going with). Going with their baked beans is just shooting yoursel fin the foot (or the gut, i should say).

That clip was awesome.
By the way this reminded me that Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is out on DVD... gotta go get that one :)

Posted by Media_Master

ok

Posted by TheBigBeefy

I actually thought it looked appetizing. Anyone care to mention why a lot of food is bad all of a sudden? I mean, what do you eat at Thanksgiving, a turkey and some mashed potatoes? That's not enough, lol.
