It is far from a new discovery: The meal that you receive from a fast-food chain usually looks nothing like the same meal as advertised on TV or online. But have you ever asked a restaurant employee to take the food back and essentially remake it so that the actual burger looks like the one in the photo on the packaging?
Serial prankster and YouTube aficionado Greg Benson did just that in his latest upload, and it has already been viewed more than 2 million times since Sunday.
"I'd say that I eat fast food four to five times a year," Benson told Trending Now on Skype. "It's a special occasion for me."
In this instance, the occasion was to film "Fast Food ADS vs. REALITY Experiment." In the three-and-a-half-minute piece, Benson travels to McDonald's, Burger King, Jack in the Box, and Wendy's. With a hidden camera, the filmmaker orders an item from the menu. He then goes to his table and compares the item he receives with the item that's shown in a photo.
