Resident Evil 6 Meat Stunt Might Make You Lose Your Breakfast

Capcom is sponsoring an art installation in East London. That sounds innocuous, except that said art installation is at the Smithfield Meat Market, and is called "Wesker & Son Resident Evil Human Butchery."

Well, that's certainly one way to get attention for next week's release of Resident Evil 6.

The meat market is not, of course, selling actual human meat, but they are selling meat, mostly pork varieties, rather disturbingly shaped to resemble humans. Along with a variety of human ears, hands, feet, and heads, brave consumers can also purchase carefully recreated sausage fingers and yes, phalluses.

Neatorama reports that proceeds from the sale of the creepy meat will go to the Limbless Association, a UK-based nonprofit that helps amputees and others who have lost a limb.

There are a few choice (and disturbing) images of the meat market at the bottom of this post, or hit up either of the links for more. I, meanwhile, stumbled across these images before lunch and am now debating whether or not I in fact ever need to eat again. Currently leaning toward "no".

      "Eating meat is the same, no matter the species". Except "eating your own species is still worse".
      So... not the same after all? Not... not even remotely the same.

      Closer to topic, this is an actual store at an actual market. Not everyone knows what "Resident Evil" is. People walking past are not going to get a vomit warning. This... could backfire spectacularly. I'll be more interested in any fallout or coverage in non-gaming media than the stunt itself, interesting though it is.

    Don't click that link, its the wrong site.

    Looks nothing like human limbs (having undertaken dissection before). The human body is actually quite tidy underneath the skin and fat (lots of long tendons in the limbs, none of this stupid mashing together of pork cuts).

    I swear I remember seeing that picture of the butcher up the top there back in a series of HotD: Overkill promo shots...

      For those of us who have not dissected a human being, I think that these are quite realistic for pieces of pork mashed together to look human.

    This reminds me of the Sony media stunt where they bled out a goat..
