Have you ever heard of a potato party? No, it’s not a delicious new political group, but instead, a party… where you just eat fries from McDonalds…
We can trace this crazy phenomenon to Japan, of course. Last October, McDonalds started discounting their large fries in an attempt to get the Japanese people to start accepting the larger portions. Some students took this as a challenge, and attempted to scoff 23 large fries. After sending a photo of the attempt online, it quickly got a lot of love, a lot of hate, and a whole lot of re-tweets.
As the picture became more and more re-tweeted, a group of students from Okayama decided that their warrior spirits could easily handle a mere 23 large fries, and instead went and got SIXTY large fries. To celebrate this momentous occasion, they even had a special balloon made.
The fad swiftly spread to South Korea where teens have been reportedly kicked out of mcdonalds restaurants for causing a mess, and disturbing other customers.
