Hamburger MakeUp Artistry

tags: , , ,

This video is a segment from the popular series “Buy Me That.” Featured is a “makeup artist for food,” who provides us with this behind-the-scenes look at how burgers (and fries) are made to look their best for television.

This just makes you want to run out to buy and eat some fast food, doesn’t it?

    Kidding aside, I now think I was served (bagged) one of those by mistake one time, must have been. The varnish on the raw burger is what gives it away as being just what I got minus pins and toothpicks, and that burger was better than some other hamburgers I’ve gotten where the meat was unidentifiable.

    The “fries” made of potatoes and wheat stuck in styrofoam, however, I missed that.

    I’ll have to share this with some folks at work.

    It might help the Andrew Smash-type businesses (they were healthy vegetarian fast food with colorful shakes, veggieburgers, fries, etc.)
