When can a good thing be too much? Apparently when you supersize your Whopper with extra bacon -- 1,050 strips of bacon!
Rocketnews 24's YouTube channel shows a man in Japan taking advantage of a Burger King promotion that offered 15 strips of bacon on a Whopper for about $1.25. This guy chose to order 1,050 -- about an extra $87.50 for the bacon (not including the base Whopper price).
Does our intrepid eater finish the entire sandwich, which is about a foot tall? Watch the video.
