This is the internet at its finest.
Ben Rosen inexplicably had the same guy eating random food based on Redditors' requests, recorded him eating it, and then posted it in the thread. He started with a video of the man, named Eric, eating a jar of plain mayonnaise, and said that he'd respond to any food request "with the appropriate video."
Eric, who Rosen says is a special ed teacher and an "all around nice guy," is a trooper. He fulfilled nearly every request, from maintaining eye contact with the camera while eating a banana to eating an actual garbage bag.
Rosen and Eric kept it rolling, fulfilling request after request.
When confronted with a large plastic garbage bag, Eric made a valiant effort to take a bite. After a good eight seconds of struggling, he gave up with a defeated shrug.
Rosen never provided an explanation for his stunt. Was it a social experiment? Was it a dadaist art, nodding to Zürich's avant-garde performers of the early 1900s? Was it a Banksy-like statement about the state of society?
Whatever this absurd, hilarious shitpost was, it at least made us laugh.
