Something silly to post today. I entered my friend Evan in a Japanese hot dog eating contest as a joke. His name was drawn out of a hat and he got the call on Tuesday. He spent all week training relentlessly and today, tested his mettle. We made a short (mock?) doc depicting his quest.
If you’re squeamish, you might want to skip the last 5 seconds of the video.
Remarkably, this turned into a major media event. The Vancouver Sun and Province were there, along with the Metro paper and the Richmond Review. CBC, CTV and Global sent TV crews. I spotted Fairchild Radio. There was even a correspondent from Xinhua, the Chinese state broadcaster. So Evan should soon have about 1.3 billion new fans.
Our video included, that’s a lot of free marketing for Japadog.
