Have you ever sat in your humble abode, longingly looking out of the window for some form of rousing stimulation to appear from the aether? Well, same. Fortunately for people like us who yearn for the zest of life to rain down upon us, there are people on the internet who air fry hotdogs for two hours and photograph the entire process.

Well yippee my ki-yay, I truly never expected 2021 to be so eventful, but here we are. Twitter user ‘Kendrick Lobstar’ (which I’m sure is his birth name) has posted an entire thread online documenting the process of air frying a hotdog for two hours, and the results were ghastly, to say the least.

It all started with a simple tweet. The goal. The hypothesis. The method. Science.

10 minutes in there wasn’t too much change, just the slight crisping up of your ol’ snag.

20 minutes in and the sausage splits. Now I don’t know about you, but in my experience, it’s always a surefire bad time when a sausage splits.

Now I want you to gaze at this next image and remember, there are 90 minutes left of the experiment.

At 60 minutes, what was once a sausage is no more. My guy, that looks like an ancient fossil.

Once he hits 70 minutes everything just looks cursed.

I mean, if what you are looking at disturbs you, please avert your eyes.

And now for the big reveal. The part you’ve all been waiting for. What on Earth does the sausage look after it’s been subject to the air fryer for far too long?

The worst part is, after this lengthy experiment, he tasted his creation. He put the godawful creation into his mouth.

And yet somehow, through all of this, the worst part is when he tried to rehydrate the damn thing.
