Watch: GoPro Video of Rube Goldberg-Style Hot Dog Dispenser

David Kalb built his own Rube Goldberg machine to plate a hot dog

Your summer barbecue just got a little more interesting.

In this video, GoPro and backyard golf enthusiast David Kalb show you the coolest way ever to plate a hot dog (or at least put it on a bun).

The homemade Rube Goldberg-inspired hot dog dispenser uses inclined planes, a croquet mallet, and at least one and a half watermelons, as far as we can tell.

If you feel the urge to spice up your next backyard barbecue with some overly complicated mechanics, use Kalb’s very miniature golf course as inspiration. There’s really no wrong way to do it, so long as you make the act of putting a hot dog on a bun more complicated than it needs to be.
