THE FRONT SEAT — I'm not a big fan of these online "challenges." There are so many and most are really silly and some are downright dangerous.
Apparently, there is now a choco challenge where you record yourself eating what is dubbed "the world's spiciest chocolate bar." If you're crowned the winner you get a lifetime supply of hot sauce.
I don't condone this challenge, as I don't condone most challenges, but this guy's reaction to the choco challenge is totally worth it.
YouTuber Brandon Farris filmed himself eating the chocolate bar in the front seat of his car and it's three minutes of absurd delight. Suffice it to say Brandon does not handle it well and even though it's gross, I laughed out loud every time he burped. I could feel his pain through the screen.
Is some of Brandon's reaction staged? Probably, but I don't care because this southern gentleman has a new fan. I don't think the video would have been nearly as great as it is without his southern twang and terrified eyes.
Maybe don't try out the choco challenge — just enjoy Brandon's attempt and move on with your day. Maybe have some regular chocolate or a Hot Tamale instead.
