A new viral video might make you think twice before ordering a Big Mac at McDonald’s.
The video posted to YouTube on March 10 shows molten copper being poured over the restaurant chain’s signature burger.
What happens — or doesn’t happen — next might make your stomach turn, as the copper splashes off the bun like water on an umbrella.
The 3-minute video shows the experimenter take the burger apart layer by layer as he pours the molten liquid — heated to 1,984 degrees according to the YouTube channel — onto the patty, pickles, lettuce and cheese.
In the end, most of the ingredients are charred, but still intact. The pickles, however, looked like they were plucked straight out of a jar, showing the molten copper is no match.
Commenters on YouTube were both amused and disgusted by the video.
“Is it weird if I still want to eat that?” commenter sufi wrote.
“That’s the first time a McDonald’s patty has been in contact with a flame,” commenter dallinj1 wrote.
The YouTube channel Tito4re, which posted the video, said McDonald’s fries would be next.
