…It’s Movie Monday: IDEO Global Chain Reaction Experience?

IDEO Global Chain Reaction Experience

IDEO’s Global Chain Reaction Experience may just be the most impressive Rube Goldberg Machine built to date.

The chain, which fifty people put together across eight worldwide locations in six different time zones on three continents, contains everything from a flaming column of helium bubbles and a cell phone dialing hot dog to a poll dancing doll and a Tickle-Me Elmo, as well as everything in between.

All told, it lasts for more than 14 minutes, but it’s definitely worth the time if you’re a fan of weird and wacky chain reactions:

…Hot dogs can be fried?

French Fried Hot Dog

Looks like the Tornado Potato isn’t the only fried creation coming out of Seoul.

Check out this hot dog vendor, serving up everything from dogs wrapped in bacon, mashed potato, corn batter, and seaweed to the soon to be classic French fry dog.

…Kobayashi is injured?

Takeru “Tsunami” KobayashiTakeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi is apparently suffering from jaw arthritis due to his rigorous training, and might not be able to compete for the next Nathan’s hot dog eating championship. According to Kobayashi, his jaw can only open to make a gap the size of a fingertip, as it “refused to fight any more”. I wish him the best, and hope that we can see him in record setting form again in time for the contest.

…Hot dogs can flavor vodka?


You may not mind the mystery meat that makes up a hot dog, but what about a vodka infused with the taste of America’s favorite finger food? Andrew Fenton has created weeniecello, a liquor that “has a fine beefy taste, with a hint of salt and gentle spiciness that lends itself to pairings with nachos or buffalo wings. Don’t want yours straight up? Try the Weenie-Tini, a concoction featuring:

    3 oz weeniecello
    1oz dry vermouth
    splash of sauerkraut brine
    garnished with a slice of frankfurter

Or, you can serve it in a shot glass and call it an Eenie-Weenie-Tini. As Smirnoff hasn’t released their own hot dog flavored vodka, I’d imagine the taste is either a love it or hate it sort of thing, but definitely something interesting to try the next time inebriation calls. Limp Bizkit would be so proud.

…Hamdogs will never die?


Mmmm, nothing says artery clogging goodness like a Hamdog, a hot dog wrapped in a beef patty, then deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions and served on a hoagie bun…and then topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries. A specialty dish at Mulligan’s Bar in Decatur, Georgia, the Hamdog isn’t something you’d want to eat on a daily basis (or even on a yearly basis), and I can only imagine the digestive coma this thing must put you in, but if you’re the type of person who will try anything once (I know I am), then you haven’t lived until you’ve conquered the Hamdog (Hear that Kobayashi?). Sadly, it looks like Mulligan’s Bar has closed, so I can only hope that they passed on the recipe for this tasty treat, or plan on taking it national in some sort of fast food chain, because the Hamdog must live on.
