Apparently We're The Refs Of The Game Testers' Speed Eating League

This Sunday I facetiously suggested that an Activision game tester had claimed the world record fastest time for eating a horrible meat sandwich called the Double Down. Disney Interactive Studios wants it known they have just obliterated the mark.

While I acknowledge this joke might be played out, the very last thing I want said is that we were somehow carrying water for a major publisher because we refused to post a video of another publisher bettering their performance at anything - making games, testing them, firing developers or eating horrible meat sandwiches.

So here we are: Disney Interactive, using the rotate-and-chew method, beats Activision's 57.97 seconds by more than 20 seconds with a final time of 35.8 seconds - and calls out Electronic Arts in the process.

You know, Walter Day recently retired, if he needs something to do, maybe I can hand off this duty to him?


    I think it's good that companies can have a bit of fun every now and again and do something like this. Makes them seem a lot more personable, and fun :)

    Yeh because we all love watching over indulgent Americans eating...

    I just think they're lucky those things aren't available here - I can see an aussie munching through one of those and chasing it with a schooner in under 35 seconds.

    if you get me one of them suckers i will beat the record
    chewing is for whimps

    I like the guy's comments at the end "I could have downed 2 in 57 seconds, get back to work!" hahaha.

    Are these sinful things in Australia yet?

      Goddamn I wish.
