There was a time, typing “celebrities eating” into Google would bring a thousand pictures of celebrities, hundreds of pictures of celebrities eating, and a good 10 or 12 pictures of Celebrities Pounding It. Over the last week, the searches are bringing back the same results again and again. Either the celebrities aren’t pounding it, or the photographers aren’t catching it. I think it’s time we all took a hard look at what Pounding It is all about.
This is Takeru Kobayashi. Known simply as Kobayashi in the world of professional speed-eating.
Look at that concentration.
Kobayashi has won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Championship a record six times in a row. In his first try, he pounded 50 hot dogs in 12 minutes.
Kobayashi also holds records for pounding lobster rolls, hamburgers, gyoza, roasted pork buns, and cow brains. He once ate 64 tacos in 15 minutes for charity.
Mr. Kobayashi, here at CPI we tip our hat to you and say Thank You for Pounding It So Hard. You are an inspiration!
Let’s get with it, celebrities! Let’s see you POUND IT!
