YouTuber Tasty Hoon has gone viral with his latest mukbang video, in which his attempt at a cheese fondue went incredibly, hilariously wrong. At least it still seemed to taste good.
In the eight-minute clip uploaded on Wednesday and shared over 42,000 times on Twitter, the South Korean YouTuber prepared to enjoy a delicious-looking meal of fried chicken and cheese. It’s a common food combination, and many YouTubers before him have pulled it off without incident.
Tasty Hoon’s downfall, however, was that he attempted to liven up his video by putting the cheese in a fountain. It sounds like an inspired idea — cheese fondue fountains are absolutely a thing, and it would add an interesting visual element to his mise en scene. Unfortunately his cheese wasn’t quite liquid enough, and the situation quickly got messy.
To his credit, Tasty Hoon was a true professional. After shutting off the destroyed fountain and momentarily pausing in teary, dazed bewilderment, he picked a string of the cheese flung around him, draped it over a drumstick, and proceeded to eat.
Come rain, come shine, come snow, come cheese, the show must go on.
