It’s often said that the mightiest, most fearsome gun in the west never dies at the hands of a worthy opponent – rather from a scrappy rogue who gets lucky. The USA might traditionally be the home of all things fatty and gluttonous when it comes to fast food, but ladies and gentlemen, the king is dead. And somewhat unbelievably, it’s South Korea who knocked the champion out.
Those of you who miraculously escaped strokes as a result of consuming it will remember that finger licking giant KFC raised a middle finger to all conventional burger wisdom and did away with the pesky bread roll, creating the glorious monstrosity known as the Double Down – two fried chicken fillets with naught but cheese, bacon and sauce between.
“That’s it!” you all thought, “They can’t possibly top that!” Well to that, South Korean KFC outlets have said “Can. Will. Have.” Except… Y’know… They probably said it in Korean.
And with a mic drop on your cholesterol levels, they unleashed this beast.
Hear that? That’s the sound of your arteries whimpering.
That, my dear friends, is a Zinger Double Down King. A bacon cheeseburger with chicken for the buns. A terrifying vision of that which will kill you, but also that which you will proudly display on your tombstone.
The introduction of a hamburger into the mix is equal parts genius and diabolical, and it’s clear now that it’s only a matter of time before this unholy slight against God consumes us first, and then ultimately the world. Also it only costs around $7, which ain’t half bad.
What’s that? You want more? How about this delightfully batshit crazy TV ad?
Run for you lives, kids. A sandwich is about to take a bite out of you.
