Watch: Champion Eater Kobayashi Challenges a Tiny Hamster

The world’s hot-dog-eating champion challenges a tiny hamster to the eating contest of his life

Hot dog-eating champion Kobayashi battles a fierce and tiny competitor.

World record-holding competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi (he currently holds 14 world records for his ability to eat more hot dogs, buffalo wings, hamburgers, tacos, and cheesesteaks than anyone, to name a few) recently challenged a tiny hamster to a hot dog eating contest, and things got intense.

The epic showdown, “Tiny Hamster vs. Kobayashi,” is truly a battle of man versus wild. Which earthly creature is able to eat the most hot dogs?

The stakes are at once very high, and non-existent, and we’re okay with it. It also helps that this competition is scored by a thrilling soundtrack, and your heart will race with adrenaline.

The whole thing is over in such a flash, we barely have time to root for either the tiny furry hamster or the man himself. My only regret is that we never made team t-shirts to show our support.
